Watch Black Mirror's season three trailer

It's easy to lose sight of what's real

Netflix is picking up season three of Black Mirror, a sort of modern-day Twilight Zone that focuses on our society's "techno-paranoia" and its side effects. Each episode serves a stand-alone story that explores the personal and social consequences of our obsession with technology. What can happen to a couple, for example, when everyone can record and review every single social interaction they've ever had? What about using millions of chat logs, videos and pictures to create an AI of your deceased loved one?

The newest trailer teases stories of medical procedures that go hand-in-hand with gaming, a woman obsessed with her popularity rating (not unlike Klout) and more. While Black Mirror's first two seasons originally aired on U.K.'s Channel 4, its latest installments have been taken over by Netflix. This could also explain the presence of some familiar names like Bryce Dallas Howard (Jurassic World), Michael Kelly (House of Cards) and Jerome Flynn (Game of Thrones).

All six episodes of Black Mirror will release Oct. 21 on Netflix.
