Although not a direct offspring of season 3's "San Junipero", Brooker shared that he was inspired by the 1980s-set episode to explore new territories.

The fourth season of Black Mirror kicks off on Netflix December 29, and there's a whole new trailer to celebrate. With David Slade as director for this episode, Maxine Peake, Jake Davies and Clint Dyer with delight us till the end.

"USS Callister" is a almost two-hour play on Star Trek, featuring a bridge crew of familiar faces all in blues, reds, and yellows. It has been directed by Toby Haynes and stars Jesse Plemons, Cristin Milioti, Jimmi Simpson and Michaela Coel. Unlike other episodes in the series, the plot shows someone trying to get away from their past. 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.


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. Starring Georgina Campbell, Joe Cole, and George Blagden, and helmed by Tim Van Patten. It features a series of three short-form stories around a central motif - that of American attractions dedicated to various technological pieces. It is directed by Colm McCarthy and stars Douglas Hodge, Letitia Wright, Babs Olusanmokun and Aldis Hodge. Two of the three stories involve medical procedures that don't quite go as planned, while the third is a odd take on non-corporal punishment.

And after much teasing, seven trailers are now available to whet your appetite for the fourth season.

Archangel, which is a Jodie Foster directed episode, focused on using technology to seemingly prevent children from wandering off, all delivered via a needle to the temple. Apparently parents will be hit harder by this episode than childless viewers. It was originally thought that Netflix would drop Season 4 early next year, but we're getting it super late this year instead.
