Netflix has officially released the trailer for the Black Mirror season 4 episode titled "Black Museum". The series itself has long been a fan favorite and drawn comparisons to The Twilight Zone, but with a technological twist. Always intriguing and dark, fans of Black Mirror have been eagerly waiting for season 4 to arrive, even though Netflix has yet to announce the season's official premiere date.
With Netflix wanting to draw in fans, the streaming service has been releasing trailers for each Black Mirror season 4 episode, including the installment titled "Black Museum". The episode revolves around Rolo Haynes, the owner of a museum that houses "artifacts" of past criminal actions; meaning, when someone does something horribly bad, Haynes collects any sort of souvenir from the incident and puts it in his museum. The trailer shows Haynes giving someone a tour of his museum, then revealing something even more twisted than the museum itself.
Based on both the poster (see below) and the trailer for "Black Museum" (see the video in the space above), fans can look forward to an episode of Black Mirror that seems certain to petrify anyone who watches it. Again, there's no premiere date set just yet, but some fans are speculating that Netflix will drop season 4 without any sort of warning. While there are plenty of other episodes that are sure to be great in season 4, "Black Museum" is the final installment, which means that it should offer a ridiculous finale to the season.
The trailer shows how demented the episode plans on being. Instead of being coy, this episode is head strong when approaching the regular disturbing content that Black Mirror is known for. The trailer also shows references to past episodes that involved criminal events, showing that all the Black Mirror episodes might well take place in the same universe.
Black Mirror is known for a lot of things, but its main component is showing how dark technology can be. While the trailer shows Rolo Haynes' creepy museum, there's probably a lot that they aren't showing in order to surprise viewers once season 4 is released. There's also a chance that the episode brings the entire series full circle, as the trailer shows aspects from past episodes within the museum.
All that being said, Black Mirror is known for being coy. None of the episodes ever seem to connect, but that doesn't necessarily mean that they aren't all placed within the same universe. While Netflix is withholding information on when the season will drop, it should only be a matter of time before fans are able to watch "Black Museum" and all the other episodes of the show, including one that was directed by Jodi Foster.
Screen Rant will keep you updated on Black Mirror, as a season 4 premiere date should be revealed soon.
