WATCH: Netflix Unveils Intense Trailers for Every Episode of Black Mirror Season 4
Consider this your preview of Season 4!
(SPOT.ph) Ever since the Emmy-winning Black Mirror made us swoon ("San Junipero"), grossed us out ("The National Anthem"), and gave us the creeps (pretty much every episode), let's just say we've been obsessed. This anthology series blends sci-fi and social commentary to give audiences a seriously disturbing and eye-opening look at our dependence on technology.
Season 4 is right around the corner, and Netflix has released exciting trailers for all six episodes! As of writing, a release date has yet to be announced, but here's what we know so far for each episode:
Directed by: Jodie Foster
Cast: Rosemarie DeWitt, Brenna Harding, and Owen Teague
Directed by Oscar winner Jodie Foster, this episode explores the relationship between a mother and daughter. After the little girl gets lost in a park and is reunited with her frantic mom, the latter becomes over-protective and installs a surveillance software into the brain of her daughter.
Directed by: John Hillcoat
Cast: Andrea Riseborough, Andrew Gower, and Kiran Sonia Sawar
John Hillcoat (who memorably helmed 2009's The Road) directs "Crocodile," which seems to be about a young female detective who tries solving a crime with the help of technology that can access people's memories.
Directed by: Colm McCarthy
Cast: Douglas Hodge, Letitia Wright, and Babs Olusanmokun
Director Colm McCarthy (Sherlock, Doctor Who) conjures a fictional museum of sorts, with each exhibit having its own short story. This museum likely seems to be crime-themed, if you pay attention to the "cloning without consent" sign in the trailer.
"Hang The DJ"
Directed by: Tim Van Patten
Cast: Georgina Campbell, Joe Cole, and George Blagden
If you've ever dabbled in dating apps, this episode will definitely hit close to home. Although much lighter in tone compared to the rest of the season, it's a picture of the modern dating world—if Spotify and Tinder joined forces to fix your love life.
Directed by: David Slade
Cast: Maxine Peake, Jake Davies, and Clint Dyer
Easily the most unsettling trailer of the bunch, this black-and-white episode seems to be set in a grim dystopian world and follows a woman whose companions were mauled by a mysterious "dog."
Directed by: Toby Haynes
Cast: Jesse Plemons, Cristin Milioti, Jimmi Simpson, and Michaela Coel
This ambitious and promising episode looks to be an homage to Star Trek, but knowing how Black Mirror does things, there's definitely more to the story than meets the eye.
this strange new world.
