For the past several days, the folks at Netflix have been torturing fans with a bunch of trailers for the different episodes of the upcoming season of Black Mirror. Now episodes already have release date: December 29th.
Black Mirror's fourth season will be released on Friday, December 29, 2017. Meanwhile, Brooker's Yearly Wipe on BBC won't be happening this year (thankfully, Black Mirror should fill that Brooker-sized hole).
First up is "Arkangel", being directed by Jodie Foster.
OK, but which of the new episodes can fans expect to bring them tears of joy instead of tears or terror? Georgina Campbell (Broadchurch), Joe Cole (Peaky Blinders), and George Blagden (Versailles) star in the episode, which is directed by Tim Van Patten (Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones).
Black Mirror is an anthology series that taps into our collective unease with the modern world, with each stand-alone episode a sharp, suspenseful tale exploring themes of contemporary techno-paranoia. The episode, directed by Colm McCarthy, stars Douglas Hodge, Letitia Wright, and Babs Olusanmokun. David Slade (Breaking Bad, American Gods) directs that one. Series 3 gave us the confidence to take on new things and show Black Mirror could mean other things, meant that we didn't just have to be nihilistic and bleak. Chewing Gum's Michaela Coel, Westworld's Jimmi Simpson, and How I Met Your Mother's Cristin Milioti are among his crew, but the episode painstakingly builds from that premise, offering up a critique of men in power and what women who work with them must endure.
