The Real World Looks Very BLACK MIRROR-y in New Season 4 Promo

As 2017 comes to a close, we’ve got a brand new season of Black Mirror to enjoy on Netflix. Charlie Brooker‘s twisted anthology series has made a name for itself by offering dark reflections on our modern lives. And as you can see in Netflix’s new promo video for Black Mirror season four, the parallels between reality and fiction can become uncomfortable when they begin to blur together.

The trailer weaves the world of Black Mirror, in the form of clips and voiceover, with that of our own, showing via news snippets from the past year just how close we’re coming to living in our very own episode of Black Mirror. It’s a little troubling when the show itself feels like it is becoming less absurd than the events of our everyday lives. And if we’ve learned anything from seasons one, two, and three, there’s no easy way out of this vicious cycle.

Bleak though this message may be, it does make us want to dive right into the latest batch of Black Mirror episodes. If you’re hankering for some of the series’ trademark depressing-as-all-hell speculative science fiction, hop over to Netflix, and read our recaps for the series’ new season below.
