What happens in Black Mirror season 5?

Episode one – Striking Vipers

In what looks like it could begin as perfectly innocent family-friendly romcom, episode one of Black Mirror season 5 details the troubled relationship of a couple seemingly trying for a baby. Anthony Mackie’s character is grilled by his wife if something is wrong after telling him he “sort of goes away” occasionally.

But after assuring his wife nothing is wrong, he’s seen lying in bed with glassy-looking eyes – proving there is something very wrong.

Episode two – Smithereens

Smithereens is the taxi journey we all have nightmares about, after a cab driver takes a passenger on an alternative route before holding a gun to his face.

He’s then seen lashing out at the devices of modern day society after attempting a calming app.

Episode three – Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too

In the episode starring Miley Cyrus in which she plays a celebrity named Ashley, the pop star can be seen launching ‘Ashley Too’, a Siri-like device which talks back at its users.

In one horrific scene Miley’s replica device can be seen yelling: “Get that wire out of my a**” after someone attempts to plug a cable into it.

Release Date

Black Mirror season five will hit Netflix on Wednesday 3rd June.


Anthony Mackie of Avengers: Infinity War is just one of the names in the new season of Black Mirror, with Miley Cyrus of course the new addition everyone’s talking about.

The series also stars Fleabag’s Andrew Scott, as well as actors Yahya Abdul-Mateen, Damson Idris, Nicole Beharie, Pom Klementieff, Angourie Rice, Madison Davenport and Ludi Lin.
