'Black Mirror' May Be Planning A Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Episode

Netflix

Black Mirror is coming off four 2018 Emmy wins for the Season 4 standout "USS Callister": Outstanding TV Movie, Sound Editing (Limited Series), Writing (Limited Series) and Single-Camera Picture Editing (Limited Series).

Interactive TV is slowly beginning to become feasible and more mainstream, as HBO released its own interactive show, Mosaic, that was directed by Steven Soderbergh and was later released as a standalone app.

Black Mirror fans, you'll soon be able to create the dystopian nightmare that you want to see. Season 4 premiered at the very end of previous year, on December 29th, which means that Season 5 could follow suit. There are no details on the episode that will use the mechanic, but it's fitting that it should be Black Mirror. The interactive aspect won't be exclusive to endings. Last year, word broke that the streaming giant was developing choose-your-own-adventure-style shows that will bring a level of interactivity to viewing audiences.

The interactive children's programming was rolled out to test the waters for adults, according to Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos.

Cardi B surrenders to police over strip club brawl
TMZ reports that Cardi will be charged with allegedly ordering an attack on two bartenders at a strip club in Queens, NY. Photos from NBC New York showed Cardi B arriving at an NYPD precinct Monday morning, shielding her face with umbrellas.

Anyhoo, nothing further to report at this time - up to and including when the next season of Black Mirror hits Netflix - but rest assured we'll be keeping you informed as further updates roll in. It seems that Black Mirror will be the guinea pig for the new addition to the service, and then more titles are expected to come out later next year. (Nothing like binging some psychologically-scarring television around the holidays!) But the real news is that in one episode from the new season, viewers will be able to interact with the story and make decisions to determine the ending.

Are you looking forward to an interactive episode?

The fourth season of Black Mirror premiered on Netflix at the end of 2017 with six all-new episodes and a finale that almost felt like an ending to the entire series.
