Netflix's Black Mirror Reveals Season 4 Trailer, Release Date

The trailer shows an extensive look at the episodes without revealing much at all, all soundtracked by Louis Armstrong's What A Wonderful World. You wouldn't tell us the Black Mirror season 4 release date until well after we'd breathlessly covered each trailer.

You've been kind and patient all year, and now Netflix is ready to reward you: There's an official release date for Black Mirror Season 4.

Taker a look at it above! Episodes are stand-alone but tend to be set in an alternate reality or in the near future.

Not to worry though, because at least we'll have the Black Mirror to keep us company.

The announcement caps off a lengthy publicity run that has seen trailers, posters and other promotional materials released for each episode distinct episode. "Crocodile" will toy with the idea of memories and how hard it can be to replicate them.

"Arkangel" is parenting à la Black Mirror, wherein a kid wandering off a playground is clear proof that "the key to good parenting is control", which means punching needles directly into children's temples.

Season 4 offers a variety of episodes I can't wait to see. Among this season's directors are Jodie Foster, Toby Haynes, John Hillcoat, and Colm McCarthy. "Hang the DJ" immerses itself in the real-life horror that is online dating.

It's a lot to take in, but don't worry, it's a lot more clear once you break it down into episodes. A late Christmas gift, then, and ideal bingewatching material for anyone nursing a hangover on New Year's Day. But will Season 4 continue the series' trend of dropping in some happier moments?

Elsewhere, "Black Museum" is exactly that - a museum of nightmares and odd, twisting devices.
