Details of the new series of Black Mirror have been announced – and Fleabag fans will be thrilled.
The fifth outing of Charlie Brooker’s award-winning future dystopia will star Andrew Scott, the priest and love interest from the second and final series of Fleabag. The trailer, released today, shows him playing a character incensed by a society that is perilously hooked on technology, who ends up going on a rampage that culminates in a shootout with police.
Miley Cyrus will star as a purple-wigged pop star of the future in an episode seemingly about fandom and the Alexa of tomorrow – a doll who also wears a purple wig, and who is described as ‘a poison’ infiltrating a young woman’s home.
Avengers: Endgame star Anthony Mackie will appear in the third new episode, about a man deeply unsatisfied with his domestic setup and seeking an outlet in tech.
Black Mirror will return on Netflix on 5 June.
