I’m starting to think that the upcoming fourth season of Netflix’s Black Mirror isn’t actually a regular season. Like it’s just a series of trailers released every day or so through the end of the year. And then on New Years Day they’ll just tell us that there is some secret message hidden in them when you watch them in the right sequence… or something. Netflix has released the sixth trailer for the upcoming season, this one is called U.S.S. Callister and it has the look and feel of a classic episode of Star Trek the Original Series. Though, for just an instant, you get the feeling that one of the crew realizes how cheesy it all is.
USS Callister follows a new crew member adjusting to life on the ship, led by the bemused Captain Daly. And while the trialer looks like a ’70s-style television series, like with all episode of Black Mirror, it is set in the near future. The cast includes Jesse Plemons (Fargo), Cristin Milioti (How I Met Your Mother), Jimmi Simpson (Westworld) and Michaela Coel (Chewing Gum). The episode is written by Black Mirror co-creator Charlie Brooker and William Bridges and is directed by Toby Haynes.
Again, no release date has been announced.
