We know that Black Mirror Season 5 was just announced with a launch date of June 5th. And we’re counting down the days so we can watch them and bring you our commentary on our Black Mirror Friday podcast!
But as any true Black Mirror fan knows, half the fun is learning the titles of each episode. In fact, when Shannon and I talk about Black Mirror, it’s always by episode title. I can’t think of another show where I know every single episode title.
So, without further adieu, here are the titles, trailers and descriptions for each Black Mirror episode for season 5 on Netflix.
A cab driver with an agenda becomes the centre of attention on a day that rapidly spirals out of control.
Cast: Andrew Scott, Damson Idris, Topher Grace
Our prediction: Based on the trailer, it looks like we’re once again confronted with the repercussions of social technology overload, as we’ve seen in Nosedive and Hated in the Nation.
“RACHEL, JACK AND ASHLEY, TOO”
A lonely teenager yearns to connect with her favorite pop star – whose charmed existence isn’t quite as rosy it appears…
Cast: Miley Cyrus, Angourie Rice, Madison Davenport
Our prediction: Looks like Black Mirror is once again diving into the territory of a separated consciousness of body and mind as we’ve seen in multiple episodes like White Christmas and San Junipero.
Two estranged college friends reunite in later life, triggering a series of events that could alter their lives forever.
Cast: Anthony Mackie, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Nicole Beharie, Pom Klementieff, Ludi Lin
Our prediction: Looks like we’re back to the Z-Eye seen in White Christmas and hinted at in The Entire History of You. I’m also getting an alternate reality vibe from this one.
So, now, the question is… which episode are you most looking forward to?
