Black Mirror is a British sci-fi anthology series that rose to instant fame once Netflix bought it in 2015. This controversial series is known to be too dark for the light-hearted. Netflix commissioned it for a new season every year since then. It shows a surreal version of how technology affects our lives.
Much to the surprise of fans all over the globe, Netflix released a standalone episode, Bandersnatch, at the end of 2018. The season 5 is set to premiere in 2019 but the exact date has not been revealed by Netflix.
Here are 5 things you may not know about Black Mirror 5:-
- Bandersnatch was supposed to be a part of the 5th season. It was announced just days before it was released.
- Bandersnatch was the first interactive episode ever on Netflix. It gave the viewers the chance to choose the actions of the main characters.
- Even the cast for season 5 has not been confirmed by the show’s creators. But if you were to believe the rumors, you’d expect Miley Cyrus, Anthony Mackie and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II on the sets of Black Mirror 5.
- Which stories will be shown in next season? Well, it’s Black Mirror. No one ever knows what’s gonna happen there. Brooker, however, did confirm that there won’t be an episode on Brexit even though he is extremely tempted. Brooker told the Radio Times: “Well I deliberately haven’t written an episode about Brexit, because you don’t know how that’s going to play out, so you’d have to wait and see, in a way.”
- Creator Charlie Brooker claimed that the new series is “imminent-ish”. He said this after the release of Bandersnatch.
