Black Mirror : season 5 has been delayed because of the episode interactive but might bring back a character
Season 5 has been delayed but will arrive well in 2019.
Black Mirror has struck a great blow at the end of the year 2018 leaving his episode, finally a film, interactive : Black Mirror : Bandersnatch (our critique here). The way to ensure a superb hearing during the Christmas holidays, and, in particular, the random fact well the things, surf on the incredible success of the Bird Box.
However, Bandersnatch, by its concept, has not been an easy matter for the producers, the director David Slade, and the creator of the series Charlie Brooker. The film has been long in designing as explained by Brooker at the Hollywood Reporter :
“You take the Frosties or Sugar Puffs ?”
“I think it is fair to say that it took us more time and more effort than expected. There is so much content that are not in the final content, it is the vagaries of the business, you need to remove it to which the world exists – or you may have the impression that it exists in a world coherent. So it took a lot of time and, therefore, season 5 was slightly shifted.”
And yes, as you might imagine, an episode also conceptual, has forced the producers to make sacrifices. It has therefore been decided to postpone the release of season 5, originally planned for the end of 2018. However, Charlie Brooker has revealed that one of the characters of Bandersnatch might be back in the series. Attention spoilers on the rest of the article.
Not so simple to implement that choice of cereals
In fact, according to THR, the creator would have confessed that Colin Ritman, portrayed by Will Poulter, could come back later and it’s in every universe imaginable :
“In appearance, it could continue forever, because he is both dead and not dead. I like the idea that he can appear anywhere. I could see it in San Junipero or run in White Bear.”
Those who watched Black Mirror : Bandersnatch know that Colin Ritman dies, disappears, or remains alive, depending on the different possible endings. The return would therefore be a blink of an eye fun, all the more that he created named sets Nosedive or Metalhead (name of episodes of the series). This would liven up the episode 6 of season 4 of the Black Museum, which proved that all the episodes were taking place in the same universe.
Season 5 still has no official date but it will happen this year, certainly. Miley Cyrus will also be of the party.
Will Poulter could well return
