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.
