BLACK MIRROR Looks Likely to Continue its Bleak and Brilliant Streak in Season 4

By on August 25, 2017

Black Mirror Season 4

Black Mirror shows no sign of slacking off as it heads into its 4th season on Netflix.

A new teaser trailer (complete with episode titles) for the dystopian near-future drama hints that the show is likely to remain at the top of its bleakly brilliant game again this year.

While showrunner Charlie Brooker has yet to announce episode details (we’re sure they will be terse, if they arrive at all), or a premiere date, the new season is however expected to drop sometime later this year.

The critically acclaimed scifi series has been described as focusing on dark and often satirical themes that examine modern society, particularly with regard to the unanticipated consequences of new technologies, with Brooker noting “Each episode has a different cast, a different setting, even a different reality. But they’re all about the way we live now – and the way we might be living in 10 minutes’ time if we’re clumsy.”

Originally premiering on British TV on Channel 4 in 2011, the series was later picked up by Netflix who commissioned a third and fourth season of six episodes each. Filming on season 4 commenced in June 2017.
