On Monday, when Netflix released the list of new shows coming in December, a lot of people were disappointed that the fourth season of Black Mirror was not on the list. But the streaming service has released a new trailer called Arkangel which talks about how the key to good parenting is control. This is a very creepy story that looks to include a child that goes missing and may not be the same when she returns… and an experimental procedure that involves putting needles into a kids temple. There is something disconcerting about seeing a needle going into part of the body that you don’t expect it to go. Especially on a perfectly still child.
For those not familiar with Black Mirror, it is a British science fiction television anthology series created by Charlie Brooker. The show centers on the dark and potentially twisted consequences of modern society and the effects of new technologies. Its an anthology series set in either alternate presents or near futures and are self-contained episodes. The series originally debuted on the British Channel 4 back in December 2011 with a second series running in February 2013. A third series was ordered by Netflix which aired in 2016. A fourth season was commissioned and wrapped filming in June 2017. Not premiere date has been given.
