Today Netflix launched the trailer for Black Mirror’s fourth season. The 50-second long tour de force features the titles of all six upcoming episodes and a few tasty seconds from each.
The previous three seasons of the technology-thriller anthology series have been met with critical glory, while reapidly becoming a favorite for technology enthusiasts. Having touched on topics like the dangers of drones, bionic implants, and using humans as an alternative source of energy, we can expect further forays into an ominous and often horrific vision of the near-future.
There was a time when the most thought-provoking anthology show on television was The Twilight Zone. Netflix’s Black Mirror is, in some ways, an homage to that style of storytelling. The difference is that Black Mirror has mind-blowing special effects and a central focus on technology.
Netflix hasn’t given any official release date yet.
Until then, can we just talk about how insanelast season was? Episode 5, Men Against Fire, was about as topical as it gets amirite?
