We’ve been waiting for almost a year for Netflix‘s highly anticipated season five of the original series Black Mirror, and now the first trailer has been revealed. Earlier this year, it was rumored that the new season would feature a “choose your own adventure” episode, and now fans are speculating that Bandersnatch is the interactive episode.
The trailer is set in the 80s, and centers around a computer game titled Bandersnatch and a young programmer who is attempting to create the game, which is based on a fantasy novel. The episode will also be the length of a feature film, and stars Fionn Whitehead, Will Poulter and People Just Do Nothing‘s Asim Chaudhry.
Set to release on December 28, watch the first trailer above. The full season is believed to be available on Netflix in 2019. For more Black Mirror, don’t miss that Miley Cyrus has confirmed that she’ll be starring in the series.
