Black Mirror will soon return to Netflix for its fourth season.
So, what sort of sinister things does showrunner Charlie Brooker have in store?
A new trailer for the episode titled “Arkangel” gives us some idea.
Rosemarie DeWitt (La La Land) plays a mother who finds herself living a parent’s worst nightmare when her daughter goes missing.
After a frantic search, the child returns. But DeWitt’s character, who is clearly rattled, turns to a mysterious tech company to keep her child safe.
The trailer doesn’t disclose exactly what kind of technology the company is using. However, we see someone inject something directly into the child’s head as she stares back, blank-faced.
“The key to good parenting is control” accompanies the image.
Black Mirror often provides a grim look at modern society. Don’t expect “Arkangel” to be any different. They can’t all be “San Junipero.”
Jodie Foster directs the episode, which also stars Brenna Harding (A Place to Call Home) and Owen Teague (Bloodline).
Netflix previously released a teaser revealing all the episode titles. Other episodes include “Crocodile,” “USS Callister” and “Black Museum.”
Netflix has not announced a premiere date for Black Mirror‘s fourth season.
