More so than any season before it, this new trailer for season five of Charlie Brooker’s opus seems to be leaning into this idea heavily. The show is notorious for it’s dark and dreary nature.

It’s filled with tons of colorful imagery, let alone the stacked cast that populates the latest season of the series.
