Bleak New Trailer For Black Mirror Season 4 Confirms December Premiere

Netflix has announced the premiere date for Season 4 of "Black Mirror".

Meanwhile, The Independent recently sat down with creator, showrunner, and writer Charlie Brooker to discuss the upcoming episodes. As usual, this season contains plenty of surprises.

"Metalhead" takes a post-apocalyptic look at the future, marking the series first black-and-white episode. With such wide-ranging scope (including the technological and psychological paranoia fans have come to expect from the show), this season is sure to have something to pique the interest of nearly all sci-fi enthusiasts this holiday season.

I say torture because, while the trailers have been fairly strong, they haven't revealed a release date yet...until now. Season 4 will be available on Netflix on a Black Friday, December 29th, 2017 to be exact. As Kiran Sonia Sawar notes, however, "memories can be subjective", and they're hardly a ideal record of events. Finally, "Black Museum" will wrap up the fourth season with a tourist trap crime museum that has a deadly and "shocking star attraction".

The season's other anchor is "Black Museum", directed by Peaky Blinders' Colm McCarthy. And it's not "The USS Callister", even though there's some sharp parody in there. The episode is directed by Toby Haynes (Dr. Who) and stars Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad), Micahela Cole and Jimmi Simpson. "Hang the DJ" jumps feet first into the dating world, with a piece of technology that appears to predict the length of two people's relationship as they embark upon it. The show has played with the idea of publicly displayed memories before, in the episode "The Entire History of You".
