The anticipated fifth season comes almost six months after Netflix dropped the “Black Mirror” interactive movie, “Bandersnatch,” which featured multiple endings and over a trillion unique story permutations.

“Black Mirror: Bandersnatch” producer Annabel Jones said in December that “Black Mirror” season five was delayed because “Bandersnatch” took so long to make.
