As we prepare our minds and bodies for the upcoming fourth season of the Netflix series, which the streaming services claims will drop by the end of the year, we've finally got previews for every upcoming episode-from the dark Star Trek riff "USS Callister" to the Jodie Foster-directed "Archangle".

All episodes were written by Charlie Brooker.

Netflix hasn't unveiled a release date for Black Mirror season 4 yet, but now that we've seen all of the trailers, expect to hear something soon.

"USS Callister" will be the fourth episode in the six episode season and will be 74-minutes long.

"USS Callister" boasts a cast of television heavy-hitters, including Plemons ("Fargo"), Milioti ("How I Met Your Mother"), Jimmi Simpson ("Westworld") and Michaela Coel ("Chewing Gum"). If that doesn't sound like an ominous premise for a Black Mirror episode, we don't know what does.

A Star Trek riff, this episode looks to bring its critique of power abuse through a fun parody that will inevitably take an terrible turn.

- "Black Museum", directed by Colm McCarthy (The Girl with All the Gifts) and starring Douglas Hodge (The Night Manager, Catastrophe), Letitia Wright (Humans, Ready Player One), Babs Olusanmokun (Roots, The Defenders). In that clip we saw a brief few seconds of an episode called "U.S.S. Callister" that looked suspiciously similar to everyone's favorite space-faring TV show-Star Trek.

Black Mirror is an anthology series that taps into our collective unease with the modern world, with each stand-alone episode a sharp, suspenseful tale exploring themes of contemporary techno-paranoia. There are obviously more unsettling, poignant and slightly more melancholic moments, but at the same time, it is a romp.
