Black Mirror is coming back to depress us all, and Netflix has revealed the cast and directors for season four's episodes. If you thought the last season was perhaps a little too happy-go-lucky, the teaser below might reassure you that showrunner Charlie Brooker hasn't lost sight of what made the Twilight Zone-meets-modern-technology anthology series so compelling. Per Deadline, Jodie Foster is behind the camera for "Arkangel," which looks to focus on a family's new tablet.

In terms of star power on the other side of the lens, "USS Callister" features Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad, Friday Night Lights) in the role of a very Star Trek-like starship commander. The other four episodes include "Crocodile," "Hang the DJ," "Metalhead" (which looks like it's about a killer robot) and "Black Museum." Unfortunately, the 50-second teaser clip is all we know about the next season and Netflix hasn't given a release date just yet.
