You know all those black, dystopian thoughts you have every now and then about life and the precarious state of the world? Black Mirror season 4 is here to affirm that you are indeed drowning in a sea of despair!

We’ve had killer bees, a virtual reality afterlife and 24/7 surveillance of your very thoughts in the first three seasons – now showrunner Charlie Brooker is back with a new season of the critically acclaimed science fiction anthology. Previous seasons have seen big names such as Jon Hamm (who’s also starring in the Black Mirror-ish movie Marjorie Prime), Hayley Atwell and Bryce Dallas Howard.

The cast this time round features more than a few fine actors, starting with Oscar-winner Jodie Foster, who’s directing one episode. The likes of Breaking Bad‘s Jesse Plemons and British actress Andre Riseborough have also signed up.

The teaser itself doesn’t provide much clues as to what exactly we can expect for Black Mirror season 4. But here’s a list of the episode names and the respective cast members.
