The Latest Black Mirror Trailer is Black and White and Barking All Over

In this trailer for an upcoming season four episode of Black Mirror, dogs are not man’s best friends.


At least, not when they’re, so far as I can make out, murderous robo-dogs. The episode showcased here, called “Metalhead,” is shot entirely in black and white, and seems to follow a woman (Maxine Peake) being pursued by aforementioned robo-dog. Or bio-weapon dog? With Black Mirror, it could be anything, really.

Anyway, the trailer promises a taut thriller of an episode, and slots alongside the rest of the season four trailers for now as offering just enough to whet our appetites—with no hint of a release date.


“Metalhead” is written by series creator Charlie Brooker, with David Slade (Breaking Bad, American Gods) taking a turn in the director’s chair.

The fourth season of Black Mirror comes out on Netflix... sometime.

ENOUGH TRAILERS RELEASE SHOW. Damn you Brooker. I suspect he is doing a meta-media experiment by putting us through our own real life Black Mirror by torturing us like this.
