New Black Mirror Still Blames it All on Your Phone

By Gary Cutlack on at

Netflix is about to drop a batch of new Black Mirror episodes, with the sci-fi anthology returning to whatever passes as your screen these days on June 5.

That nice man out of Sherlock then Bond then Fleabag is in one episode too, which is nice as he's nice and very good at being insane. Can't ever remember his name though. Andrew something maybe? His episode is heavy on the smartphone paranoia, as it appears that notification fatigue pushes him over the edge. Although there's probably more to it than that. There always is, isn't there?

And yes, that was Miley Cyrus. Bang on Charlie, bang on. Now this may be a trick or on purpose to mess with our expectations on a meta level, but there only appears to be three new Black Mirror episodes featured in the trailer for this fifth series. So don't schedule too much time for it. One evening set aside for the horror should suffice. [Twitter]
