The Netflix anthology series Black Mirror has released details on its upcoming Season 4, including casting news, and a title teaser.

The series was recently nominated for three Emmy Awards, including the Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Mackenzie Davis-starring episode ‘San Junipero,’ which is up for Outstanding Limited Series, Movie or Dramatic Special.

Appearances in the forthcoming series include Michaela Coel (Chewing Gum), Letitia Wright (Black Panther, Ready Player One), Babs Olusanmokun (Roots, The Defenders), and Georgina Campbell (Flowers, Broadchurch, Kypton).

Created and written by Charlie Brooker, Black Mirror taps into our collective unease with the modern world and each stand-alone episode is a sharp, suspenseful tale exploring themes of contemporary techno-paranoia. Without questioning it, technology has transformed all aspects of our lives; in every home; on every desk; in every palm – a plasma screen; a monitor; a Smartphone – a Black Mirror reflecting our 21st Century existence back at us. The series has been recognized with an international Emmy Award, a Peabody Award, a Rose D’Or and been nominated for a BAFTA award.
