It’s been a wild week for Netflix. Still riding high from the success of Bird Box, the streaming service unveiled a new feature film for their series, Black Mirror. Not to mention, they released a new trailer for their upcoming film starring Chevy Chase. To top it all off, they have a new concert special for Taylor Swift coming on New Year’s Eve. Still, the streaming service is thinking two steps ahead for the betterment of subscribers.
Netflix has told me that the fifth season of Black Mirror is still to come in 2019. Bandersnatch was not the fifth season, but a standalone interactive film, in case you were wondering.
