  • All details of 'Black Mirror' Season 5

Black Mirror will be the first time Netflix has attempted their choose-your-own-adventure model on a live-action program. With a show as layered and twisty as Black Mirror, this is sure to be a fascinating experiment.

Created by Charlie Brooker, Black Mirror is an anthology series that taps into our collective unease with the modern world, with each stand-alone episode a sharp, suspenseful tale exploring themes of contemporary techno-paranoia.

The streaming service is reportedly adding an interactive element to a crop of new specials that will allow the viewer to influence the outcome of certain storylines, anonymous sources at the company told Bloomberg.


Netflix previously tested its plausibility with kids TV show Puss in Book, and is now testing it out for adult shows as well. Two of the projects are adaptations of video games. At this point, it doesn't really matter since fans are more than likely excited that the show is coming back sooner than later. Writers and producers are still determining how the extra demands affect their pay, among other matters. Just think of your favourite episode of "Black Mirror" and how big of a difference in the ending there could have been had you been in control! The Black Mirror Season 5 news along with the interactive Netflix news comes to us via Bloomberg. The stories that branch off from the main narrative of Black Mirror will, however, be a lot more complex than the options in the kids' programming. Production of the fifth season began earlier this year. But Netflix has never tried it with a marquee title until now.

Despite the same number of seasons, Black Mirror has twice as many Netflix episodes (12) as Channel 4 episodes (six). The widespread availability of high-speed internet, the prevalence of touch screens and interactive games have all laid the groundwork for shows that ask the viewer to engage.
