After releasing Bandersnatch on December 28, Netflix has confirmed that a full fifth season will arrive in 2019!
The confirmation comes via Ars Technia who received a statement from Netflix which said “season five will arrive later in 2019.”
This comes after creator Charlie Brooker previously described what to expect in a new interview with The New York Times:
We’re doing more optimistic episodes and stories, rather than just dystopian and negative ones. We want to keep the show interesting for us.
The next Black Mirror series should include around six brand new episodes. This is still unconfirmed – but this is going by the format of seasons three and four.
