Netflix has been releasing trailers for each episode of the new season of the anthology series Black Mirror, but now we have an official season 4 trailer that incorporates a bleak use Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World”. It also opens with a voiceover about how intolerance and “huge environmental challenges” have made it “hard to imagine a bright future”, so we can definitely look forward episodes full of the show’s distinct dystopian realness.

A robotic voice reassures us that “everything happens for a reason”, but we recognize technological comfort in the world of Black Mirror tends to be more hopeless and empty than anything else. From Indiewire, the titles of the upcoming season are:

Arkangel” directed by Jodie Foster and starring Rosemarie Dewitt, Brenna Harding, and Owen Teague.
