Charlie Brooker’s anthology of technological horror comedies returns for its fifth series.

We only know of three episodes in the series at the time of writing. “Smithereens” follows a taxi driver (Andrew Scott) who finds himself the centre of attention in a day where things spiral out of control. “Rachel, Jack and Ashley, Too”, sees a teenager trying to connect with her favourite pop star (surprisingly played by Miley Cyrus), whose charmed existence isn’t what it seems. “Striking Vipers” follows two estranged college friends (Anthony Mackie and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) who reunite, triggering a series of events that could alter their lives forever.

Black Mirror is available on Netflix.
