Netflix is giving us bonus Black Mirror! It is set to launch a “short three-episode video series” called Little Black Mirror in conjunction with the series season 5 premiere, next month! The three mini-episodes will take place in the Black Mirror universe, but there is no talk of the shorts being directly connected to season 5 content.
The trailer for shows us flashes of familiar images from the anthology series. There are scans, injections, AI, that creepy tech glow in the pupils… and ominous bloody hands at work on some computer device. Yes. All of the dread and all of the possibility live in this mini-series.
The companion series stars Maia Mitchell (The Fosters), Rudy Mancuso, Juanpa Zurita, Lele Pons, Anwar Jiwabi, Hannah Stocking, Jeff Wittek, Delaney Glazer and Alesso. The short, companion episodes will be rolled out on YouTube on May 26, June 2 and June 6, on the Netflix América Latina channel.
Black Mirror season 5 stars 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. It will stream on Netflix starting June 5th.
