Netflix Officially Unveils Black Mirror: Bandersnatch in Official Trailer One Day Before Premiere
This special event will arrive on the streaming platform on December 28th.

Our recent reports on the next installment of Black Mirror have proved to be of substance with the official announcement of Black Mirror: Bandersnatch. As expected, this is a special event as opposed to the beginning of the series’ fifth season, taking the feature-length route with a “choose your own adventure” twist. In true Netflix fashion, the title has been officially revealed the day before it premieres on the streaming platform, which is tomorrow, December 28th.
Officially, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch is set in 1984 and follows a young programmer who is tasked with adapting a fantasy novel into a video game. The project eventually leads to him questioning reality while facing a “mind-mangling” challenge. The episode reportedly contains about five hours of footage, indicating that the viewer will be able to make choices and watch it play out differently depending on each pick. The trailer, which you can watch above, seems to support this as well with the heavy emphasis placed on the “change” parts of its verbiage.
Black Mirror: Bandersnatch stars Fionn Whitehead (Dunkirk) as Stefan and is directed by David Slade (Black Mirror: Metalhead, Hard Candy, 30 Days of Night). Also starring is Will Poulter (The Maze Runner, Detroit) as Colin Ritman, Alice Lowe as Dr. Haynes (Sightseers, Hot Fuzz), and Asim Chaudhry (People Just Do Nothing) as a yet-to-be-named character.
Although season five of Black Mirror is not set to hit Netflix until sometime in early 2019, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch arrives tomorrow on December 28th. Welcome back.
