Black Mirror‘s Season 3 Trailer was released and it’s going to make you want to get as far away from technology as possible, as per usual. Seriously, you may even want to stop reading this, put your phone down, turn off the computer, and don’t even bother with watching the trailer, or the show at all.
For those of you who aren’t aware, the series, created by Charlie Brooker, is a television anthology showing the dark side of life and technology, usually set in the present day or the future. Season three, like previous seasons, does see the typical separate cast navigating varyingly eerie and alienating scenarios in each episode, but there’s more. Instead of just 3, this season there are 6 new episodes – and we have a time jump, but into the past, or so it seems anyway (queue conspiracy music).
The trailer shows chilling glimpses of all 6 episodes and their allotted main characters, with hints into what each episode will be about, and some of them (*cough the social media and cyber bullying ones*) seem to hit much closer to home than others. Watch it here:
The episode titles are as follows, in this order: San Junipero, Shut Up and Dance, Nosedive, Men Against Fire, Hated in the Nation, and Playtest. We’ll let you look into connecting which title belongs to which anthology and delve into further meanings.
Black Mirror launches in all territories October 21st. Will you be watching?
