Release Date Revealed After Trailer for 'USS Callister' Dropped

Black Mirror is back with seven trailers of fourth season; release date confirmed for 29 December

The full-season trailer combines footage from all six new episodes into a definitive statement about Black Mirror: happiness is temporary, the world is dreadfully frightening, but everything happens for a reason.

Making its Netflix debut on December 29, Charlie Brooker's fourth series of anthology tainted-tech TV will offer a collection of perspectives on how technology can be exploited or twisted in disturbing and dystopian fashions. While the trailer is somewhat brighter and more upbeat, fans would do well to remember that "Black Mirror" is known for truly sinister and darker themes. It stars Andrea Riseborough, Andrew Gower and Kiran Sonia Sawar, and is directed by John Hillcoat.

Arkangel, directed by Jodie Foster, is about the lengths parents will go to to keep their children safe, while Black Museum, involves an exhibit that houses items linked to horrific acts. In this episode, a dating app not only decides who you can date, but also when your relationship will expire.

Finally there's the USS Callister, which appears to be a more light-hearted episode poking fun at the classic Star Trek series, though there's likely to be a not at some misuse of technology during parts of the episode.

It's bigger in scope than previous Black Mirror episodes and tackles a different kind of science fiction.

Democrats, however, sought to focus on Trump's comments and actions, and the actions of members of his campaign previous year . The investigator, Peter Strzok, had a prominent role in the FBI's Clinton investigation.

Crocodile takes place in a reto-looking future where memories can be accessed, reminiscent of the Black Mirror episode "The Entire History of You" only with the idea that memories can be subjective rather than exact recordings of facts. It has been directed by Toby Haynes and stars Jesse Plemons, Cristin Milioti, Jimmi Simpson and Michaela Coel.

Black Mirror, which won the 2017 Emmy Awards for television movie and television movie writing, will return with six new episodes. The series is coming to wish us an unhappy new year, in a way.

Black Mirror first aired on Channel 4 in 2011 - instantly garnering attention for its opening episode, in which the Prime Minister of Great Britain is blackmailed into having sex with a pig.

All episodes to date are available to watch on the streaming service.
