And it also doesn't seem to be part of a new interactive episode - meaning fans will actually get a real season of TV from the Black Mirror team and not just a long exercise in breakfast cereal selection and its consequences.

The trailer makes it look like Charlie Brooker's dark anthology series will be tackling smart home devices, our collective obsession with fame, diminishing privacy and the awful sound of a bunch of unsilenced phones. The upcoming fifth season, which marks the third full season to premiere exclusively on Netflix, is going back to the United Kingdom version's truncated episode length.

Additionally, the cast lineup features Anthony Mackie, Nicole Beharie, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Topher Grace, Andrew Scott, Damson Idris, Pom Klementieff, Madison Davenport, Angourie Rice, and Ludi Lin, according to Variety. Bring on the summertime sadness, arriving 5 June.

Black Mirror is an anthology series that taps into our collective unease with the modern world, with each stand-alone episode a sharp, suspenseful tale exploring themes of contemporary techno-paranoia leading to an unforgettable - and sometimes unsettling - conclusion. And while that was a fascinating and inventive experiment, the prospect of a new regular series of Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones' bleak technological satire is hugely enticing.
