In a deleted tweet, Netflix recently announced a new Black Mirror movie that will air this December. Black Mirror: Bandersnatch is a full-length Netflix feature separate from Season 5, which can already be found on the streaming platform although users are unable to play it just yet.
When you search for the show, an option with just a loading icon appears next to the 4-season series. Clicking on that new addition reveals that there is a 90 minute Netflix film called Black Mirror: Bandersnatch.
While users can not view the film yet, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch is heavily predicted to begin streaming next week, on Friday, Dec. 28 as per the deleted tweet from Netflix’s verified account.
The synopsis of “Bandersnatch” reads “Be Right Back”, which is the same title as the first episode of Black Mirror’s second season which characters recreate their deceased loved ones through AI.
Black Mirror’s fifth season is reported to return Netflix in 2019, with an episode featuring Miley Cyrus, as well as an interactive ‘choose your own adventure’ where viewers will choose their own endings to the episodes.
