The news was revealed in a now-deleted post by the verified Netflix Twitter account, which several sources believe was a leak. If the original post is to be believed, season five will drop on December 28 and the first episode will be titled “Bandersnatch.” The word bandersnatch comes from Lewis Carroll’s 1871 book Through the Looking Glass and is described by Oxford Dictionaries as, “A fierce mythical creature immune to bribery and capable of moving very fast.”
Bandersnatch interpretations aside, Netflix and Brooker are keeping their cards close to their chests in terms of what to expect in season five. Back in October, it was reported there would be a choose-your-own-ending episode, an interactive experience that promises to mess with viewer’s heads even more than we’ve come to expect from Brooker and Black Mirror.
