Home News From The 'Verse BLACK MIRROR: episode titles, cast, directors announced for fourth season of dark...

Prepare yourself for plenty of BOLD CAPITALISATION throughout this post – this is as Our Cup O’ Tea as it gets.

Earlier today Netflix announced, via a teaser trailer, the titles of the upcoming fourth season of CHARLIE BROOKER‘s dark and challenging ‘Technological Twilight Zone’ anthology series, BLACK MIRROR – in addition, they also announced some of the cast, as well as the directors, for each episode.

The name’s involved are truly stellar: Jimmi Simpson comes fresh off his star turn as William in WESTWORLD, Jesse Plemons continues his solidifying his standing as solid character actor in BREAKING BAD and FARGO, director DAVID SLADE is much in demand after helming standout episodes of hits HANNIBAL and AMERICAN GODS, and one of the episodes of the season, ‘Arkangel’, is only being directed by Jodie Freakin’ Foster! A ‘superstar creative team’, indeed.

That, and the UK talent involved – MICHAELA COELANDREA RISEBOROUGH, ANDREW GOWER, KIRAN SONIA SAWARGEORGINA CAMPBELLJOE COLEGEORGE BLAGDEN, MAXINE PEAKE, JAKE DAVIES, CLINT DYERDOUGLAS HODGE and more – makes this a truly British production, with the show retaining its very dark sensibility, honed from that very first season; Brooker is taking on the lion’s share of the writing credits this season so expect some grim laughs and unsettled dreams throughout.

The season will consist of six episodes (not enough if you ask me), and is set to premiere later this year. ‘Hang The DJ’? Ooh, Leonard’s not going to be happy about that…
