Twitter has leaked a release date and title for the upcoming season of Black Mirror. It’s been a long year since the last season of the futuristic series was released on Netflix, and although a lot of details about the upcoming season have been kept under wraps, an accidental tweet might have revealed everything that the fans were waiting to hear: there’s not to much longer to wait.
Netflix announced the upcoming episodes earlier this year along with a video that showed a collection of screens flickering with previous Black Mirror episodes, before showing the loading symbol.
The video ended reading ‘be right back’ as it was shared on Twitter with the caption:
The future will be brighter than ever.

The production of season five has been underway in Croydon, London, where a local high street was transformed into a street straight out of the 1980s. One person in the area shared pictures of the scenes, writing:
Hive of activity at St. George’s Walk Croydon. It’s Christmas at WH Smith. There’s a Wimpy, Chelsea Girl clothes store, FADS DIY Store, Soleil travel agency, Pizza Hut. It’s gone complete 80s #blackmirror.

It’s safe to assume that Netflix is ready to blow our minds once again, as the season looks to have been in the making for a good nine months, meaning that it’s nearing its completion. One eagle-eyed Twitter user said that the season could actually be almost within our grasp.
The Twitter user shared a screenshot of what appeared to have been taken from the official Netflix account NX on Netflix, listing the release dates for several shows, including Black Mirror season 5 that will be hitting our screen on December 28.
The posted picture on Twitter was captioned:
BEFORE YALL START ASKING THIS WAS ON A VERIFIED ACCOUNT AND THEN THEY DELETED IT BC NETFLIX PROB DIDNT WANT PPL TO KNOW BUT ANYWAYS.
There’s the possibility that the photo could have been photoshopped, but as the other release dates listed have been confirmed, the post could definitely be a real announcement. Along with the release date, the image leaks a Black Mirror title too, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch.
Previous seasons’ episodes had their own subtitles, so I guess we’ll just have to see if only one episode will be titled that, or whether it is a sweeping title for the whole season.
These rumors are a continuation of rumors that have been circulating lately, such as the inclusion of an interactive episode where viewers can choose the fate of the main character, as well as the possibility of Miley Cyrus having a role in the show.
However, it looks like we won’t be waiting too long for the rumors to be confirmed.
