Jodie Foster Will Direct a ‘Black Mirror’ Episode in Season 4
Netflix’s Black Mirror Season 3 hasn’t even had a chance to creep the bejeezus out of you just yet, and already Season 4 is upping its pedigree. The next round of dark technology parables has its first director in Jodie Foster, helming one of six new episodes with a first star already picked out.
Just days before six new Black Mirror episodes arrive streaming on Netflix, Deadline confirms that Foster will continue her Netflix directing streak with one of the six Black Mirror episodes comprising Season 4. The episode will star Rosemarie DeWitt, but no plot details have been released as of yet.
As Black Mirror fans will likely remember, Netflix originally ordered twelve new episodes of the cult anthology series, ultimately opting to halve them into Seasons 3 and 4. Check out the individual episode details Season 3 below:
“Nosedive,” featuring Bryce Dallas Howard (Jurassic World), Alice Eve (Entourage) and James Norton (Grantchester) in an episode directed by Joe Wright
“Playtest,” featuring Wyatt Russell (The Walking Dead webisodes) and Hannah John-Kamen (Killjoys) in an episode directed by Dan Trachtenberg.
“Shut Up and Dance,” featuring Jerome Flynn (Game of Thrones) and Alex Lawther in an episode directed by James Watkins
“San Junipero,” featuring Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Touch) and Mackenzie Davis (Halt and Catch Fire) in an episode directed by Owen Harris
“Men Against Fire,” starring Michael Kelly (House of Cards), Malachi Kirby (Roots) and Madeline Brewer (Hemlock Grove) in an episode directed by Jakob Verbruggen
“Hated in the Nation,” featuring Kelly MacDonald (Boardwalk Empire) in an episode directed by James Hawes
For those unfamiliar with the series, Black Mirror takes an anthology approach to technology parables, each episode telling an original tale of the dark influence modern and future technology might have on humanity. Existing episodes have featured the likes of Fantastic Four baddie Toby Kebbell, Agent Carter favorite Hayley Atwell, Star Wars: The Force Awakens villain Domhnall Gleeson, and most recently a Christmas special with Jon Hamm and Game of Thrones alum Oona Chaplin.
House of Tomorrow’s Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones remain onboard as executive producers and showrunners. Stay tuned for further details of the October 21 release, and check out the latest featurette below.
