“Black Mirror” gave fans a first look at its upcoming fifth season with a new trailer starring Miley Cyrus.
The sci-fi anthology series is back with three brand new episodes. The trailer shows clips of Cyrus, who appears to be portraying a pop star. In one clip she dons a purple wig and gives an elaborate performance complete with back up dancers.
Her role reminded some people of her “Hannah Montana” days while others were excited to see Cyrus in the hit Netflix series.
