On Tuesday (May 21), Netflix unveiled a series of preview clips from the show's upcoming fifth season, streaming on June 5, in which the "Nothing Breaks Like a Heart" singer stars in the episode "Rachel, Jack and Ashley, Too." Cyrus portrays a purple-haired pop star named Ashley with whom a lonesome teenager wants to connect.
In the one-minute trailer, featuring actresses Angourie Rice and Madison Davenport, Ashley tells her fans, through a forced smile, "It's really important to be who you want to be." Behind closed doors, however, watchers realize Ashley is living a double life of her own — one far darker and less perky than it appears in the public eye.
Additionally, the network also released two more new narratives, titled "Smithereens" (starring Andrew Scott, Damson Idris, and Topher Grace) and "Striking Vipers" (starring Anthony Mackie, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Nicole Beharie, Pom Klementieff, and Ludi Lin). The former sees Scott as a cab driver with an insidious agenda, the latter regards a reunion between two estranged college friends that triggers a life-changing chain of events.
