It’s been nearly a year since we had a good blast of the ol’ existential-despair-as-a-show that is Black Mirror, so much so that I’m getting an existential crisis waiting for the show to come back. Just think about that.
But alas, the wait is nearly over because Netflix have dropped a big teaser for Charlie Brooker’s next round of cynical technological musings.
And in true Black Mirror fashion, they’re teasing us by completely messing with our heads.
If you search up “Bandersnatch” on Netflix, you’ll get a mysterious new promo for an upcoming Black Mirror film.
But alas, that’s not all.
There’s no poster or header image besides Black Mirror‘s iconic loading icon and various screen grabs from previous episodes, and the only description as to what this new movie might be about are these three ominous words: “Be right back.”
That sounds… ominous.
If this is the first hint of that much-anticipated interactive Black Mirror episode then we’re in for a crazy ride.
As for when we’ll get to find out what Black Mirror has in store for us, we won’t have too long to wait as word on the street is that the next batch of episodes will drop at the very end of 2018 (around the 28th) like a belated Christmas present.
I have no idea what to expect – not that we really ever do – but here’s hoping that the new batch of Black Mirror episodes/movies/mind messer-upperers will hit us in the feels like the season three masterpiece ‘San Junipero‘, which remains the greatest thing the show has ever done.
