Black Mirror season 5 is officially available to stream worldwide. The new season consists of only three episodes, which is a return to the show’s original structure — three-episode series — before Netflix became its new home. No reason has been given for season 5’s shorter episode count, but some of it might have to do with the last time Black Mirror darkened our screens.
Netflix recently whetted the appetites of Black Mirror fans with an “event” movie brandishing a “Choose Your Own Adventure” style system, called Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, which arrived back in December. The innovative interactive experience has led Netflix to look for other opportunities to get viewers involved with its other shows. It’s pretty ironic that Black Mirror seems to be at the cutting edge of a new viewing experience here.
