Though the trailer does not give away much, it is once again a commentary on the perils of technology. The video gives brief glimpses of Scott having a public meltdown as onlookers try to record it from a distance, a teenage girl, whose only confidante is a doll sized robot and a man tempted to cheat on his wife.

Despite show creator Charlie Brooker promising the audience that season 5 would be "more optimistic", the upcoming season seems rather dark. Speaking about Mackie and Mateen being a part of the show, Brooker had told Entertainment Weekly, "It’s the Marvel-DC crossover no one saw coming."

Black Mirror season 5 comes months after the release of the interactive feature-length standalone episode Bandersnatch, directed by David Slade. It was a choose-your-own-adventure-style, allowing viewers to decide the events of the film with their remote control.

Netflix will premiere Black Mirror season 5 on 5 June.
