This ‘Black Mirror’ Poster Is Super Creepy!! Check It Out!!

Black Mirror” fans, could your wait for the release of Season 4 be almost over?

Netflix released a new poster for the second episode of its fourth season on Friday, titled, “Arkangel” (see it in its entirety below). It’s the first tweet from the show’s official Twitter account since September.

It looks innocent enough, but if you know anything about the spooky dystopian series, it’s that things are not always what they seem. The poster features a mother and daughter playing together outside at sunset below the words “Mother will protect you.” We know this episode has to do with a mother-daughter relationship, but we have a feeling “mother” in this case has something to do with the show’s often-nefarious technology.

Black Mirror” producer Annabell Jones told the Independent that this episode “follows a mother who has a young daughter and faces that perennial question of how to look after a child in an increasingly technical world.” She also said “it taps into helicopter parenting.”

We previously speculated that because an archangel is a highly-ranked angel, the Arkangel in the title could be a program that allows a mother to watch over her young daughter. It could then be a commentary about nanny cams and other smart apps. Does this program find the daughter’s real mother to be a threat, thinking the daughter is safer under the “protection” of technology?

Jones also said that this episode is “an indie movie set in blue-collar America,” which the poster’s aesthetic seems to reflect.

The episode is directed by Jodie Foster, and Rosemarie Dewitt, Brenna Harding and Owen Teague star.
