Black Mirror is quite simply some of the best television we've had in recent years with Charlie Brooker consistently finding even more ways to make us question the world we live in and the future we are rapidly hurtling towards. Technology may be our ally now, but Black Mirror has always found a myriad of ways to show how one day it could far too easily take one large bite out of our collective asses.

The fourth season is on the way shortly, and as with season three, it has the big budget of Netflix behind it so we no doubt have some great shows in store, including an episode directed by Jodie Foster and a cast including Jesse Plemons (Fargo, Breaking Bad), Rosemarie Dewitt (La La Land, Mad Men) and Cristin Milioti (The Wolf of Wall Street, Fargo, How I Met Your Mother),

For those that may not have seen it before, there's no need to worry about catching up, Black Mirror is an anthology series with each episode featuring a completely different storyline and cast.

As announced today at the Edinburgh International TV Festival, season four will bring six new episodes - the titles and previews of each can be seen in the trailer below - with more details below that.
