You won’t have to wait long now, Black Mirror fans! According to Bloomberg, we’re going to be getting the show sooner rather than later. And not only that, but the series will be debuting a new type of episode for fans to have fun with – a choose your own adventure episode. All of it will end in sadness, right? 

The highly acclaimed series will be getting it’s fifth (and potentially final) season. While nothing has been officially announced by Netflix, the site reports that the season will debut in December of this year. Just in time for the holiday binge! The fourth season debuted in December of last year, so this unconfirmed report may have some merit to it. In addition, they’ll be trying out an interactive episode. The streaming giant has already released shows with an interactive episode, including Dreamworks Puss in Book and a Minecraft series. This will be a first for the sci-fi television series.

And honestly, what better way to do it than with Black Mirror? I mean really! The show is perfect for it! All the mistakes you’ll make while trying to figure out a good ending for the episode? So much unpredictability, so much fun (and sadness). It’ll be interesting to see how they implement it!
