Netflix has stared into the future of technology…and the future looks black.
The streaming giant has just unveiled the first teaser and the titles for the six new episodes that make up Season 4 of the smash hit anthology series created by Charlie Brooker about the evils of technology and those who use it.
The short teaser revealed the titles of those next six episodes: “Crocodile”, “Arkangel”, “Hang the DJ”, “USS Callister”, “Metalhead”, and “Black Museum”, along with brief snippets of each episode. There’s the usual mix of paranoia, strange futuristic gadgets, and what appears to be a Star Trek parody.
