In the first look at season 4 of Netflix’s anthology Black Mirror, it spares no expense to tease even more techno-paranoia for its binge-watching audience. The new trailer features the Jodie Foster-directed episode “Arkangel” starring Rosemarie DeWitt and gives a terrifying look at “good parenting.”
The 55-second tease features DeWitt’s character and her daughter playing in a park when she all of sudden disappears. After frantically trying to find her, she shows up but DeWitt’s character is clearly unsettled and decides to make her daughter go through a procedure where it doesn’t happen again.
The trailer doesn’t give the full details of this “completely safe” technological intiative, but all we see is a syringe injected into the child’s head accompanied by the caption “The key to good parenting is control” and a doctor saying “Response so far is just incredible. A sense of security, peace of mind. The stories we’re hearing are just truly inspirational.” But as we know from Black Mirror, it is anything but.
Season 4 of Black Mirror is set to bow on the streaming giant in 2018.
