He will star opposite Jurassic World actress Bryce Dallas Howard in Nosedive, one of six new episodes of the anthology series about tech paranoia.

The new episodes, all written by creator Charlie Brooker, will boast a line-up of Hollywood stars, including Game of Thrones actor Jerome Flynn, Belle actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw and House of Cards star Michael Kelly, as well as The Martian's Mackenzie Davis and Star Trek Into Darkness actress Alice Eve.

They will launch on the streaming service on October 21 after Channel 4 lost the broadcasting rights to the series.

Netflix has also announced that the long-awaited revival of Gilmore Girls will premiere on November 25.

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life will comprise four 90-minute episodes spanning a season and will reunite Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel as mother and daughter Lorelai and Rory Gilmore.

Director Joe Swanberg's anthology series Easy, starring Orlando Bloom, Malin Akerman, Dave Franco and Emily Ratajkowski will launch on September 22, the entertainment company announced.

Jennifer Garner will also join the streaming service when she voices Mama Llama in original animated series Llama Llama, based on the book series by Anna Dewdney.

Garner, who separated from husband Ben Affleck last year and has three young children, said: " I've read Anna Dewdney's Llama Llama books to my kids hundreds of times in the last ten years. Little did I know it would all count as rehearsal - I'm thrilled to bring Mama Llama to life for Netflix.

"The Llama Llama books are so fun to read - your kids won't even notice they are learning life lessons, such as how to battle boredom, or braving the first day of school. But when your kids watch the cosiness of Mama Llama's relationship with her Little Llama, be ready for an extra snuggle as you connect, while learning about the world around you."

The show is set to premiere in 2017.
