If there has been one show that has officially conquered the netizens, it is ‘Black Mirror’. Unique with its concepts and dangerously experimental with its storylines, the show has acquired a reputation for being unpredictable and refreshing with every episode. There’s really no continuity in the plot of the storylines, but there’s a relation between the underlying themes. It examines modern society, particularly with regard to the unanticipated consequences of new technologies. Episodes are standalone, usually set in an alternative present or the near future, often with a dark and satirical tone, though some are more experimental and lighter. The show has garnered critical acclaim and mustered several awards, including BAFTAs and popular awards like Saturn Awards.
Black Mirror Season 5 Cast: Who’s in it?
As has been the tradition with all Black Mirror episodes, the cast keeps changing with every episode, so there’s no permanence in that regard. None of the previous collaborators on the show are expected to return in season 5. The streaming service hasn’t announced the cast yet, but going with the trend of previous seasons, expect a generous mix of stars and newcomers for season 5. The cast for Season 4 is an indicator towards the same and included: Jesse Plemons, Cristin Milioti, Jimmi Simpson, Michaela Coel, Andrea Riseborough, Andrew Gower, Kiran Sonia Sawar, Georgina Campbell, Joe Cole, George Blagden, Maxine Peake, Jake Davies, Clint Dyer, Douglas Hodge, Letitia Wright, and Babs Olusanmokun.
Black Mirror Season 5 Plot: What is it about?
Absolutely no details regarding the plot or the themes of the fifth season have been released by Netflix. Their insistence on keeping the details under wraps is just another indication how important the show is for them and for the fans who want to be surprised every time they tune in. Season 4 had plenty of twists and turns for the audience. Two episodes in particular, “USS Callister” and “Metalhead”, caught the attention of commentators and were the most successful of the season. The Star Trek parody received widespread acclaim from critics and audiences alike and was showered with praise for its unique concept and relation with the general theme of the show. The anthology has been brave with its premises in the past and the same is expected for the fifth season as well.
