Netflix Releases Trailer for 'Black Mirror' Season 4 Episode 'USS Callister'

Netflix Releases Trailer for 'Black Mirror' Season 4 Episode 'USS Callister'

The ensemble cast for "USS Callister" also includes Jimmi Simpson (Westworld) and Michaela Coel (Chewing Gum).

"USS Callister" is directed by Doctor Who and Sherlock alum Toby Haynes and co-written by William Bridges.

Netflix has been doling out teaser trailers for the fourth season of the show over the last two weeks an all six are officially up.

After an initial two-season run on the UK's Channel 4, the show's rebirth on Netflix previous year had some great episodes ("San Junipero", "Nosedive") but it also included arguably some of the show's worst to date ("Men Against Fire", "Playtest"). Netflix released key art for episode yesterday. The spot blends psychological paranoia with the techy futurism Black Mirror always delivers upon.


Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker previously said "U.S.S. Callister" is less about Star Trek's normal (non-Discovery) themes of hope and exploration, and more about "tyranny and abuse of power".

This will be the first time that Black Mirror has ventured into outer space. If we had to guess, we'd say that the daughter in question is going to be implanted with...something.

- "Black Museum", directed by Colm McCarthy (The Girl with All the Gifts) and starring Douglas Hodge (The Night Manager, Catastrophe), Letitia Wright (Humans, Ready Player One), Babs Olusanmokun (Roots, The Defenders).

Finally, "Hang the DJ" (trailer below) stars Georgina Campbell, Joe Cole and George Blagden and is set in a world where people are paired up for dating with a device that tells you how long you should be together for. In that clip we saw a brief few seconds of an episode called "U.S.S. Callister" that looked suspiciously similar to everyone's favorite space-faring TV show-Star Trek. Just look at those glowing hands.
