Here's The First Trailer For 'Black Mirror' Season 4

The new season is debuting "later this year."

People kiss. People fight. People hurtle through an asteroid field in a spaceship. These may or may not all be parts of the typical human condition, but they’re definitely components of the new trailer for the fourth season of “Black Mirror.”
