"Everywhere you look, people are hooked on the things," comes a shrill scream in Netflix's new "Black Mirror" trailer. If that's not enough to force you to put down your phone--or whatever device you're on--this will do the trick.
The streaming service released a nearly two-minute trailer for the anthology drama's fifth season Wednesday and, as expected, it is equally parts thrilling and terrifying. "You should have seen it coming," the show's Twitter account posted this morning along with the video.

As is tradition, the Emmy award-winning series features an A-list cast. The upcoming three, standalone episodes will star Anthony Mackie, Topher Grace, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Miley Cyrus, who plays a pop star preparing to perform in front of 20,000 eager fans.
Cyrus first hinted at her role in a December interview with Howard Stern. "I'm really actually excited for everyone to watch the 'headshaking project' we said yes to," the singer teased during a guessing game on his show. "The minute I say I never want to do something again, all of a sudden, there I am."
Beyond Cyrus, other plot lines will follow a married man who seeks pleasure from women on the Internet, a lonely teenager who turns to her Alexa-like robot for companionship, a gun-toting man in the midst of a breakdown and an outsider living on a deserted hill.
"Black Mirror" season five will be released on June 5.
