Until today, we knew a few details about Season 4 of Black Mirror, but fans at New York Comic Con finally got a deep dive during the Black Mirror panel. Season 4 director and acclaimed actress Jodie Foster moderated the panel, in which show creators Charlie Brooker and Anabel Jones presented an exclusive first look at a clip from Foster's "Arkangel" along with unveiling news and secrets about the show itself. Brooker wrote all six episodes of Season 4, which have all been filmed and promise plenty of Easter eggs for fans of the show. 

"Arkangel" has certainly gotten people talking, but it's "USS Callister" that has a lot of us here rather intrigued. The episode is directed by Toby Haynes, who also helmed several episodes of Dr. Who ("The Impossible Astronaut," "The Pandorica Opens") and Sherlock ("The Reichenbach Fall").

While the "Arkangel" video clip hasn't been released yet, Collider's Perri Nemiroff has a breakdown of what she saw.


Book Brooker and Jones also sat down with Kevin Smith to discuss the upcoming season as well as some of the influences behind the show and much more.

The hit anthology series has been on a roll: Black Mirror Season 3 won two Emmys for it's "San Junipero" episode: Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series, Movie or Drama for Brooker, and Outstanding Television Movie. 

Black Mirror is currently streaming on Netflix, so you still have time to get caught up before Season 4 starts later this year.
