Netflix has not revealed a premiere date for season four of Black Mirror, but has been slowly rolling out trailers for upcoming episodes that offer a terrifying peek at what’s in store for the anthology series from Charlie Brooker that “taps into our collective unease with the modern world.”

The tease is part of the streamer’s “13 Days of Black Mirror” marketing strategy, where it began dropping promos on November 24 with plans to unveil a surprise on day 13, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“Hang the DJ” is the latest trailer and it shines a light on dating apps gone wrong with an advanced system that “maps out a series of relationships for you in advance,” and comes with an expiration date.

The episode stars Georgina Campbell (Flowers), Joe Cole (Peaky Blinders) and George Blagden (Vikings) and is directed by Tim Van Patten (The Sopranos, Game of Thrones).

“Black Museum” focuses on a curation of “authentic criminological artifacts.”

“If it did something bad, chances are it’s in here,” says proprietor Douglas Haynes in the trailer. “There’s a sad sick, story behind most everything here.”

The episode also stars Aldis Hodge, Letitia Wright (Humans) and Babs Olusanmokun (Roots), and is directed by Colm McCarthy.

“Crocodile” explores the subjectivity of memories and introduces a technology that ensures they’re accurate.

It stars Andrea Riseborough (Bloodline), Andrew Gower (Outlander) and Kiran Sonia Sawar (Murdered by My Father) and is directed by John Hillcoat (Triple Nine, Lawless).

“Arkangel” is directed by Jodie Foster, and uses the tagline, “the key to good parenting is control.” When a little girl goes missing at a playground, and then reappears, her mother turns to an experimental technology to make sure it never happens again.

The episode stars Rosemarie Dewitt, Brenna Harding (A Place to Call Home) and Owen Teague (Bloodline).
