The footage, much like the rest of the sci-fi show, emphasizes how the perilous nature of technology impacts daily life. Mackie is a family man who uses a dating app and is later confronted by his wife or girlfriend, played by “Sleepy Hollow” actress Nicole Beharie.
In other scenes, Cyrus is in her element as she sits by a piano and later performs on stage before adoring fans. Her character appears to share a link with a robotic doll that influenced her as a young girl. In December, she alluded on Howard Stern’s XM radio show that she has a role in season five.
Topher Grace, Andrew Scott, Pom Klementieff and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II also make appearances. A line from Scott’s character encapsulates the season five trailer: “Everywhere you look people are hooked on things.”
