The buzz created by Black Mirror’s year-end special Event, Bandersnatch was huge.
The capacity to select the fate of the protagonist’Stefan’, by making active decisions during the episode was quite revolutionary for a mainstream TV series. But it seems like this was just a
Based on The Hollywood Reporter, the show executive producer and also co-creator Annabel Jones has verified that the’enormous’ effort and creative time which went into the production of Bandersnatchended up shoving back the fifth season of Dark Mirror.
No confirmation was given by either Black Mirror’s manufacturers or Netflix about when precisely in 2019 we’ll get to see the next season of this sequence. In the past the series was published near a year apart with Season 3 releasing in October 2016 and Season 4 in December 2017. Although Bandersnatch does follow this deadline, it is uncertain how long we’ll have to await the rest of the season. Additionally, it is unclear how many episodes will be there in the upcoming season, since Black Mirror had moved out of a 3-episode year to a 6-episode year in 2017.
Moreover, when Dark Mirror returns it might have a bit of a change in attitude. New York Times quoted series co-producer Charlie Brooker admitting”We’re doing more optimistic events and tales, rather than just dystopian and negative ones,”. Taking into consideration the paranoia around technology these days, this may only be refreshing.
It’s also worth noting though Bandersnatch has executed interactivity extremely well, it was not the first Netflix show to do so. That would be’Puss in Novel: Trapped within an Epic Tale’.
