Streaming service Netflix announced that the popular dystopian science fiction anthology Black Mirror will be back for a fifth season.

The series, which has featured high-caliber British acting talent of almost every stripe, explores issues of technology and its unanticipated effects on modern society. Each episode is a standalone story, and can be watched in pretty much any order – though the series’ creators have been hinting that some (or all?) of them may exist within a larger shared universe.

Basically, Black Mirror is like a modern, more tecnosavvy version of The Twilight Zone, but if all the social media apps, dating services, home security systems and online game shows turned out to be basically terrible and/or threating to us, all the time.  (It’s honestly a fascinating series, and if you haven’t checked it out yet, you should.)
