Netflix just released an official trailer for their Season 4 episode of Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror titled “Arkangel.” The tease comes from “13 Days of Black Mirror,” an ongoing celebration of the Netflix show.
Each episode of Black Mirror explores the theme of “collective unease with the modern world,” depicting various new ways advanced technology transforms lives; from rating every interaction, to uploading one’s consciousness after death to virtually live forever.
In “Arkangel” Rosemarie DeWitt stars as a mother who resorts to drastic measures after her child nearly disappears. In order to keep tabs on her daughter when they’re apart, she goes to a very particular extreme to make sure it never happens again.
Check out the official trailer for Black Mirror Season 4: “Arkangel” below:
After Rosemarie’s character loses little Sara, she takes her daughter to some sort of medical trail that includes a very sterile lab and a very uncomfortable looking needle to the temple. It’s completely safe, Rosemarie’s character says at the end of the trailer. We highly doubt that.
Netflix also tweeted an ominous poster for “Arkangel.” The episode, directed by Jodie Foster, explores the triangle relationship with parents, their children, and technology. The poster shows a mom spinning a child with the words ‘mother will protect you’ written above.

Foster joins a Season 4 behind-the-camera roster that also includes John Hillcoat, David Slade, and Tim Van Patten. “Arkangel,” like almost all of the Black Mirror episodes, is written by the show’s creator Charlie Brooker. The episode also features Brenna Harding and Owen Teague.
Other episodes for season 4 are titled ‘Crocodile’, ‘Hang The DJ’, ‘Metalhead’, ‘Black Museum,’ and USS Callister,’ which looks like a comedic riff on sci-fi series like Star Trek.
Even though there is no official release date for Black Mirror Season 4, it has been confirmed it will land sometime in late December.
