The buzz created by Black Mirror’s year-end special episode, Bandersnatch was huge.
The ability to choose the destiny of the protagonist’Stefan’, by making active decisions throughout the episode was rather groundbreaking for a mainstream TV series. Nonetheless, it seems like this was a one-off, since
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series executive producer and co-creator Annabel Jones has confirmed the’enormous’ attempt and creative time which went into the creation of Bandersnatchended up shoving back the fifth season of Black Mirror.
No confirmation has been given by Black Mirror’s manufacturers or Netflix about when precisely in 2019 we’ll get to see the next season of the sequence. Previously the series has been released close to a year apart with Season 3 releasing in October 2016 and Season 4 in December 2017. Though Bandersnatch does follow this deadline, it’s uncertain how long we’ll have to wait for the remainder of the season. Additionally, it is uncertain how many episodes are there in the upcoming season, because Black Mirror had transferred from a 3-episode season to some 6-episode year in 2017.
Moreover, when Black Mirror yields it might have a bit of a change in mindset. New York Times quoted series co-producer Charlie Brooker admitting”We’re doing more optimistic events and tales, instead of just dystopian and negative ones,”. Considering the paranoia around technology nowadays, this may just be refreshing.
Additionally, it is worth noting though Bandersnatch has executed interactivity really well, it wasn’t the first Netflix show to do so. That might be’Puss in Novel: Trapped within an Epic Tale’.
