Ahead of the show’s arrival on June 5, a new trailer debuted on YouTube yesterday and showed what fans can expect from Cyrus’ debut in the dystopian drama after her involvement was first reported last year.
It appears like a darker version of her Hannah Montana days – with Cyrus seemingly playing a musician with the tricky task of navigating fame.
While it marks an unexpected turn in Cyrus’ career, there’s considerable excitement nonetheless.
“I have a feeling that Miley’s episode on Black Mirror is a darker version of Hannah Montana,” speculated one fan.
Another said: “OMG look @ Miley. I’m so excited for Black Mirror. This is about to be it. She is back.”
As the below tweets show, fans are pretty excited to see Miley’s performance.
Oh my fucking God I absolutely cannot fucking handle the idea of Miley Cyrus and black mirror https://t.co/QmAUpTPjt1

The latest trailer also starred Avengers star Anthony Mackie and Fleabag’s Andrew Scott who are both set to appear in the show.
Away from Black Mirror, Miley will make her return to the UK later this month for a headline performance at Radio 1’s Big Weekend. It’s followed by a headline slot at Primavera and a performance on Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage in June.
