‘Black Mirror’ Is Returning With Season 4, And We’ve Binge Watched New Episodes

One thing we do know is that final episode 'Black Museum' is a portmanteau, similar to previous special 'White Christmas'.

We got that information from Penn Jillette – yes, the magician, who's contributed a story to the episode and gone into a surprising amount of detail about it.

"I was postulating a future where you could put a gizmo on your head and feel someone else's pain. So there would be doctors whose whole job it was to feel pain and say, 'His left arm is broken', [or], 'That's not actually appendicitis, that's a cancer thing'.

"They felt every pain. Like prizefighters and childbirth and child cancer. And this guy gets addicted to it and starts beating people to feel their pain. He also goes through S&M and all he wants to do is jack into Jesus on the cross. He wants to feel that pain. I wrote this story. It was the first story I wrote when I got a computer.

"When we did Penn and Teller's first book, we had short stories in it. I submitted this and the editor said, 'That's too dark'. I've been trying to find a place for this story, which I thought was really good. I tried to write a comic book and they said no. I pitched it as a movie and they said no. So I told Charlie Brooker all of this and he said, 'Oh, pain addict. That's good!'"

The series will be as varied as ever, with a mix of genres, including crime thriller, indie movie and the most overtly comic episode yet.

For many, 'San Junipero' was the standout episode of Black Mirror's third season... and indeed, of the show's entire run. So it's perhaps no surprise that the upcoming fourth season will be a little less bleak.

"This season, the writing of it started in July 2016, so there were episodes being written all through the American election... and everything was looking horrible," Brooker explained. "I genuinely thought, I don't know what state the world's going to be in by the time these [episodes] appear, and I don't know how much appetite there will be for nothing but bleak nihilism.

"If you're living in a dystopia, you don't necessarily want to look at another one. So I sort of thought, let's maybe not make them all [depressing]. Although, the thing is, you have to be aware that a lot of people tune in for that. So you still want to give them that."

Black Mirror season 4 airdate: when is it released?

Black Mirror season three aired in October last year, so you might've expected a similar broadcast date in 2017.

But proving that Black Mirror is never one to be predictable, Netflix finally confirmed early in December that season four will officially drop on December 29, making it the perfect binge-watch for that post-Christmas, pre-New Year lull we all find ourselves in.
