Black Mirror Season 4 Just Got An Official Release Date

'Black Mirror' is as creepily timely as ever on season 4

Once again, all the new episodes revolve around some nightmare scenario.

At the end of the trailer, a release date for the series is finally revealed.

Black Mirror first aired on Channel 4 in 2011 - instantly garnering attention for its opening episode, in which the Prime Minister of Great Britain is blackmailed into having sex with a pig.

While the first full trailer is above and tries to avoid giving too much away, there are a few shots that one might consider spoiler-ish.

Like any reflective surface, Black Mirror often shows viewers a vision of themselves that they may not wish to embrace.

"I think what's cool about [Black Mirror] is there are so many genres within the genre, and Charlie's not afraid to [go] down the rabbit hole and say, 'Here, take the blue pill, take the whatever", Rosemarie DeWitt, the star of Season 4's "Arkangel" tells TV Guide.

Season 4 offers a variety of episodes I can't wait to see.

Cole herself looks like a fun character - while off-ship on a mission, she starts to whine about an overly dramatic villain and is immediately shushed by a more dedicated crew member. The tagline is "Memories can be subjective", and apparently so can trailers. Are you looking forward to jumping into the worlds created by Season 4? "Hang the DJ" could exist in the same social-climbing universe as season 3's "Nosedive", sketching out a world where young people's only responsibility is to find a life mate, with the help of an app, of course. Definitely the episode we know the least about, and made all the creepier with the choice to go B&W.

"Black Museum", which stars Douglas Hodge, Letitia Wright, Babs Olusanmokun and Aldis Hodge, is set at a crime museum that showcases a number of high-tech items. Savor these last few moments of normality, because the screen of reality is about to get cracked again starting on December 29.
