Netflix is offering up some fresh information about the highly anticipated return of Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror, which will be back for season 4 with 6 new episodes. Today at the Edinburgh International TV Festival, the streaming giant released the episode titles along with a teaser video, providing a quick glimpse at what lies ahead.

And there is a lot to be excited about! Jodie Foster will be directing the episode titled “Arkangel,” while another episode will find Fargo’s Jesse Plemons in his finest polyester space onesie à la Captain Picard alongside Westworld’s Jimmi Simpson, who will never not be a sweaty McPoyle brother to me. Here is the teaser trailer to give you a taste of the techno-paranoia to come:
