'Black Mirror': Season 5 Episode Titles, Trailers

Netflix's technophobic smash hit Black Mirror returns next month with three all-new episodes to keep you up at night. Watch the individual Black Mirror trailers below, which are accompanied by descriptions.

The first trailer is for the episode titled "Smithereens", which stars Sherlock's Andrew Scott as a "cab driver with an agenda becomes the centre of attention on a day that rapidly spirals out of control". Black Mirror has touched on the idea of consciousness trapped within technology in episodes like White Christmas and Black Museum.

Rachel, Jack and Ashley, Too.

The synopsis reads "A lonely teenager yearns to connect with her favorite pop star - whose charmed existence isn't quite as rosy it appears..." Last week, they announced they shared a trailer for the fifth season which didn't really tell us much except that Miley Cyrus and Anthony Mackie were to appear in it.

Brooker has said in the past that season five will offer fans a much more positive outlook on life - which wouldn't be that hard considering how utterly bleak previous seasons have been. Considering how Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones' hugely popular sci-fi anthology varies from episode to episode in tone, setting, and character, this is our best look yet at where the next run will be taking us all when we inevitably binge it all on 5 June. The show began teasing the fifth season at the beginning of the year, shortly after the release of Black Mirror's interactive film, Bandersnatch which was essentially Netflix's trial run for choose-your-own-adventure type films.
