The scariest part about watching Netflix’s Black Mirror is believing that the stories might actually come true in the future. The anthology sci-fi series has questioned our dependency on technology and visualised a world where technology essentially dominates our lives like we’re their puppets.
The newest offering from Netflix is the fifth season of Black Mirror where you can experience three all-new stories from mastermind Charlie Brooker and executive producer Annabel Jones. The show will star Anthony Mackie, Miley Cyrus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Topher Grace, Damson Idris, Andrew Scott, Nicole Beharie, Pom Klementieff, Angourie Rice, Madison Davenport, and Ludi Lin. The trailer attempts to remind us of what is ruining our lives, the one thing we’re always hooked on to – smartphones, internet, new-age technology, etc. You get the idea. Take a good look at the trailer and be terrified.
This time, we’re only getting three episodes that will most probably change your perception about privacy, connection, love, sex, family, and the technological world we live in. It’ll make you think about your own life and maybe, the scary, dystopian future you might end up living in.
