Rumors about Miley Cyrus joining the prestigious nightmare-inducing Black Mirror series first started swirling earlier this year when Cyrus was spotted in Cape Town, South Africa. The singer took photos with several fans and was even spotted buying souvenirs. It looks like the photos and rumors were right.
This morning, Cyrus seemingly confirmed her guest role on Black Mirror to Howard Stern, but with no caveat. She made sure not utter the name of the series itself as she has not received official confirmation that she is allowed to talk about her appearance yet. To compromise, she let Stern guess the name of the series she was filming while abroad, and he guessed correctly. Netflix has yet to confirm the news, but Refinery29 has reached out for comment.
Black Mirror is a popular dystopian anthology series. Because each episode is a new story, the show has filmed at locations all over the world. The most recent season featured episodes in Nevada, Iceland, and the UK. According to IMDb, Season 5 is being filmed in four different locations; Los Angeles, London, Toronto, and Cape Town.
The release date for season 5 has not been revealed, but on October 1 Bloomberg reported Netflix was planning an ambitious choose-your-own-adventure episode. Unclear how this will work, but it certainly sounds worth the wait.
