Black Mirror fans have an exciting period ahead and we couldn’t be more ready to hate all kinds of technology again.
Obviously there is the small matter of the upcoming fifth season (rumoured for 28th December), which would usually be enough good news in itself.
However a sneaky addition on Netflix has caused an even bigger stir amongst the Black Mirror community.
Eagle-eyed fans have highlighted the likelihood of a feature-length Black Mirror release, after spotting this on the streaming platform.
If you search for ‘Bandersnatch’ on Netflix, you should get the above image. Obviously it doesn’t give away much but that is most definitely the Black Mirror logo accompanied by the catchphrase “be right back”. HOW COULD IT NOT BE A BLACK MIRROR FILM?
On Netflix’s mobile version fans are even given an indication that should this feature be a real thing, the running time would be one hour and a half.
Of course, this could even by something to do with the whole ‘choose your own storyline‘ thing that has been promised for the upcoming season, which would be equally as cool.
Bloomberg recently reported that Netflix is “developing a slate of specials that will let viewers choose the next storyline in a TV episode or movie,” with Black Mirror set to be the first to trial the feature.

With rumours of a release around Christmas, does this mean a one-off episode? Or a full-on fifth season? pic.twitter.com/dmnozi10PF

One thing we do know about season five, is that Miley Cyrus will be making some kind of appearance. Rumours had circulated for some time but Cyrus has now finally confirmed her cameo during an interview with Howard Stern.
She didn’t share specifics but did say that there are a “lot of different sides” to her character.
“There’s a lot of dimension to it, and actually it was while the devastation of Malibu was happening, and it was a really weird learning experience for me because I was so far from home and the show is already really dark, and it’s already kind of eerie when you’re there the whole time,” Cyrus told Stern.
“But I learned a lot about myself, and I think I was able to use that and put that into it.”
