Netflix has been teasing interactive choose-your-own-adventure style content, such as with the upcoming Minecraft series.
The idea of an interactive Black Mirror episode is a compelling one, especially considering that the series itself explores the intersection of technology and society as well as its implications, many of which reveal the dark, nightmarish side of the conveniences of our modern world.
In its four-season run so far, "Black Mirror" has become one of Netflix's biggest shows. It's certainly attention-grabbing, and I could see the concept working on an extremely meta-level with Black Mirror. It seems that Black Mirror will be the guinea pig for the new addition to the service, and then more titles are expected to come out later next year.

Officials said aftershocks, the communications breakdown and the power outage made it hard to coordinate rescue efforts. A key access road had been badly damaged and was partially blocked by landslides, the disaster agency said.
No details on the cast, directors, or episodes for Season 5 have been released yet, but fingers crossed we hear something soon.
Citing people familiar with the matter, Bloomberg is reporting that Netflix is developing a slate of specials that will let viewers choose the next storyline in a TV episode or movie, essentially allowing the viewers to decide how their favourite show will end.
Netflixs foray into interactive TV, which is a mix between a game and video, started in June 2017 with Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale. Will adult viewers be ready to indulge in the choose-your-own-adventure storylines, or will they choose to watch what is given to them without participation? Whereas last year's shows were meant for children, Netflix's latest work is being developed for a more mature audience. Early this year, HBO released the Steven Soderbergh series Mosaic, which launched with an app that added an interactive element to follow different story threads. The kid-friendly animated adventure, Puss in Book, let kids choose whether or not Puss would fight a god or a tree, letting the user go back and change the decision once they saw the outcome.
