Black Mirror boldly goes into new territory with USS Callister trailer
Staff Reporter | On 05, Dec 2017Reading time: 5 mins
“Crew, we have a new member of the team…” That’s Jesse Plemons in the final trailer for Black Mirror Season 4, which gives us a look at what might be the show’s most ambitious episode yet: an episode set in space.
USS Callister sees us join Captain Daly and his trusty crew as they explore the galaxy and the dangers of unknown alien planets. And with Toby Haynes (Dr Who, Sherlock) at the helm and a cast that includes Cristin Milioti (The Wolf of Wall Street, Fargo), Jimmi Simpson (Westworld, House of Cards) and Michaela Coel (Chewing Gum, Monsters: Dark Continent), the spoof Star Trek vibe is so garishly colourful that you know it can only be concealing something darker and more disturbing.
It completes the run of trailers and posters unveiled by Netflix this month, which means we now only have to sit back and wait for the whole of Season 4 to drop announced before the end of the year. Could it be tomorrow…? Until then, keep yourself entertained with this intriguing new teaser:
Black Mirror unleashes Metalhead trailer
3rd December 2017
Black Mirror has unleashed the latest trailer for Season 4, and it gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “beware of the dog”.
David Slade’s episode stars Maxine Peake (The Theory Of Everything, The Village), Jake Davies (The Missing, A Brilliant Young Mind) and Clint Dyer (Hope Springs), and sees a woman tracking down a canine with what seems to be a nasty taste for humans.
The episode is the penultimate chapter to get the 13 Days of Black Mirror treatment by Netflix, which is releasing posters and trailers for each new episode before the show’s December release date is announced. If you thought the poster for Metalhead was sinister, sink your teeth into this:
Hang the DJ trailer: Black Mirror Season 4 does online dating
1st December 2017
“Shall we check our expiry dates?” That’s the sound of Black Mirror entering the arena of online dating for the first time. Charlie Brooker’s anthology series has often tackled relationships, with Season 1 exploring life and dating in a world where people have memory chips in their heads that allow them to replay conversations. Season 4, though, jumps into romance head-on, with Hang the DJ, an episode based around a new, advanced dating system.
Directed by Tim Van Patten, it stars Georgina Campbell (Flowers, Broadchurch), Joe Cole (Peaky Blinders, Green Room) and George Blagden (Versailles, Vikings). Here’s the trailer:
Get a glimpse of Black Mirror’s Black Museum in new Season 4 trailer
29th November 2017
Netflix is continuing its “13 Days of Black Mirror” with the latest in a string of episodic trailers for Season 4.
The new teaser gives us a closer look at Black Museum, after Netflix released the poster for the episode yesterday. Written by Charlie Brooker and starring Douglas Hodge, Letitia Wright and Babs Olusanmokun, it tells the story a lone traveller who stumbles across a tourist-friendly crime museum. If it did something bad, chances are it’s in there. But inside lies a shocking star attraction…
Directed by Colm McCarthy, it joins Crocodile, and ArkAngel in receiving a tantalising trailer ahead of the show’s release, which will happen at some point this year…

Crocodile trailer lands as Black Mirror Season 4 December release date looks likely
27th November 2017
“Memories can be subjective,” Black Mirror teaches us in the latest trailer for Season 4.
The new teaser gives us our first proper glimpse of Crocodile, the second episode in the new season. Directed by John Hillcoat, the episode stars Andrea Riseborough, Andrew Gower (Outlander) and Kiran Sonia Sawar (Murdered By My Father).
The episode follows the aftermath of a car crash involving Riseborough’s driver, as new technology joins the investigation in an attempt to unearth more accurate memories of what happened in the incident.
The trailer arrives hot on the heels of the teaser for Episode 1, ArkAngel, directed by Jodie Foster. With the other episodes called Hang the DJ, USS Callister, Metalhead and Black Museum, and with Netflix now releasing posters for each episode on alternate days with the trailers, it looks likely that Black Mirror Season 4 is building up to a surprise release date of December.
Catch up with our look back at the lessons Black Mirror has taught us and our spoiler-filled reviews of each episode of Season 3.

Black Mirror Season 4 trailer teases ArkAngel details but no release date
25th November 2017
The key to good parenting is control, Black Mirror’s new Season 4 tells us – so naturally, we know to disregard that advice entirely.
Yes, Charlie Brooker’s dystopian anthology is returning for another run of cautionary tales and disturbingly plausible chills, in its new home of Netflix. The new trailer gives us a specific look at ArkAngel, the episode directed by Jodie Foster. It stars Rosemarie Dewitt (La La Land, Mad Men), Brenna Harding (A Place to Call Home) and Owen Teague (Bloodline) in a story that revolves around a mother’s decision to trial a new kind of safety and security technology with her daughter. Which, of course, can only end well.
The only problem is that we don’t know when exactly we’ll get to see the final episode: Black Mirror Season 4’s release date remains as unclear as ever, with what was once looking to be a December release now possibly being pushed back until January, unless Netflix is planning a surprise release, after The Punisher’s attempt to do something similar backfired horribly.
Stay tuned for more details when we get them – or head this way to see what we know about the rest of the new season.
