Black Mirror has fast become one of the most groundbreaking storytelling series on television, smashing the borders between screens and consumer with their recent interactive effort, Bandersnatch.

The trailer and cast list has just been released for season five of Charlie Brooker's mastermind show, and it's absolutely spine-tingling.

Irish actor Andrew Scott (AKA Moriarty in Sherlock and THAT hot priest in Fleabag) can be seen surrounded by police in a car, shakily holding a gun in the trailer.

The all-star talented cast features 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 in new roles which will test their boundaries.

Miley Cyrus is shown in a purple wig, seemingly playing an entertainment artist or performer. It's as futuristic as you may expect of this show, but we'll have to wait and see what her character resembles.

The anthology series taps into our collective unease with the modern world, and each stand-alone episode illustrates a suspenseful story exploring the contemporary theme of techno-paranoia.

Featuring 'one future we should have seen coming', three all-new stories illustrate the danger of isolation and technology, privacy and human connection. 

Technology has transformed all parts of our lives; at home, on every desk, in every palm. Black Mirror season five is ready to give us the unsettling conclusion, and we CANNOT wait. 

Black Mirror returns to Netflix on June 5, 2019. Start your countdown, lads.

EVERYONE is talking about Netflix's new episode of their hit dystopian show, Black Mirror. To be honest, we can't forget it, because it's so damn INTENSE.

Bandersnatch is an interactive feature which clocks up over an hour-and-a-half of pure, unadulterated MADNESS where the viewer makes choices on behalf of the protagonist.

Each choice which we make influences the future and fate of Stefan, a computer programmer who is creating his own version of Bandersnatch as a game in 1984.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Everything but make it Bandersnatch

A post shared by Netflix US (@netflix) on

Writer Charlie Brooker must have almost gone insane himself writing all ten endings; the episode is so tangled and complex that the audience themselves feel complicit in every horrible thing which ensues.

Whether it's choosing methods of murder, the music which Stefan listens to or even just his cereal preference, we are in control of him and boy is it a RUSH.

The reactions online, predictably, have been absolutely hilarious. Here are some of the gems which we dug up after we un-shook ourselves (it took some time and whiskey TBH)…

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD.

1. Those of us who enjoyed controlling Stefan a lil bit too much:

 2. Our tangled minds trying to comprehend reality:

3. Will Poulter's EYEBROWS?

4. The shock we felt when our decisions had actual consequences…

5. The whole dad debacle. I mean, no words needed.

6. Those CRAZY folk who decided to watch Bandersnatch and Bird Box on the same day, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING:

7.  Those tough, tough choices re: breakfast though:

8. Let's face it, we all chose for Colin to jump rather than Stefan and then felt guilty didn't we:

9. We don't even know how to explain this one:

10. When Colin was the SPITTING IMAGE of Sid from Toy Story, except blonde:

11. Poor Stefan trying his best to understand us:

12. Why murder was easier than deciding cereal?

13. We're all evil.

14. When we chose a computer game over a 19-year-old boy's sanity:

15. We got banderSCALPED.

16. We couldn't live without finding out those endings, mmkay?

17. We became sub-human:

18. Our own mental health was simply compromised:

19.  We all wanted Stefan to succeed, didn't we?

20.  The whole Colin-Stefan relationship was warped AF:

21. Finally, who else was attracted to either Colin or Stefan??

The show has ruined us completely. 

Good luck to anyone who managed to watch the full thing, as well as finding out each (mind-boggling, usually tragic) ending.

We need to go lie down, the world is SPINNING.
