We've also ranked our top 10 Black Mirror episodes of all time, the show, by Charlie Brooker and once a Channel 4 exclusive in the United Kingdom, that is now available on Netflix.

Viewers will get to choose their own storylines in one episode of the upcoming season of Black Mirror, the Emmy-winning science-fiction anthology series.

Black Mirror's fourth season released last December, and in our review, we said "Season 4 of Black Mirror is dark, amusing, shocking, and pretty great, too".

It's worth noting that Black Mirror isn't the only show to allow viewers to choose their own path. HBO got ambitious with Steven Soderbergh's Mosaic, which had an app that allowed viewers to see the storyline from different perspectives and play it out in an order of their choosing.

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.

Therefore, while they might be third favourite in the race, they are a horse with pedigree and can not be ruled out. But Chelsea's credentials are not just down to Hazard and their ability to draw on recent successes.


Netflix has been developing interactive programming for a while now.

So it's only right that Black Mirror is going to be involved in Netflix's brand new idea, where the individual viewer will ultimately decide how the episode ends. They also plan to release a Minecraft series with the same choose-your-own-adventure elements.

Adam Bankhurst is a news writer for IGN who loves Black Mirror and just watched San Junipero and is still recovering from that experience. As Netflix expands around the world, it's looking for new ways to lure customers.

The company has already experimented with the feature for various kids' programs, including "Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale" and "Buddy Thunderstruck: The Maybe Pile", which gives viewers 10 to 15 seconds to select make choices in episodes using their TV remote or video game controller.

The Black Mirror won't be 2018's first choose-your-own-adventure-style story geared towards adults.
