‘Live long and prosper’, easy to know what iconic sci-fi TV Show franchise, so is Charlie Brooker a ‘Trekkie’? Looking at one of the two new images Netflix has sent us for Black Mirror he might be.
Black Mirror is settled comfortably at Netflix and soon will launch its fourth season (second at Netflix) with images from 2 of its episodes. First up is from USS Callister which looks like a full on parody of Star Trek and even the characters look remotely like some of those iconic characters. Jesse Plemons (Black Mass, Fargo) leads the cast with Cristin Milioti, Jimmi Simpson, Michaela Coel and Billy Magnussen.
The second is straightforward but for something less lighthearted with a potential ‘devil child’ with an image from episode ‘Arkangel‘ Starring Rosemarie DeWitt. Not much can be said about the image apart from this episode has been directed by Jodie Foster.
Season Four will consist of six episodes much like the previous season with the other episodes called ‘Crocodile’, ‘Hang the DJ’, ‘Metalhead’ and ‘Black Museum’.
Black Mirror is an anthology series that taps into our collective unease with the modern world, with each stand-alone episode a sharp, suspenseful tale exploring themes of contemporary techno-paranoia leading to an unforgettable – and sometimes unsettling – conclusion. Without questioning it, technology has transformed all aspects of our lives; in every home; on every desk; in every palm – a plasma screen; a monitor; a Smartphone – a Black Mirror reflecting our 21st Century existence back at us. The series is created and written by Charlie Brooker, and executive produced by Brooker and Annabel Jones.
If you love a dark dystopian storyline, Black Mirror will tickle your fancy and with moving to the streaming giants, the fan base has grown worldwide.No word yet on the actual streaming date, but it’s expected sometime before the end of 2017.
