A fifth season of Black Mirror is officially upon us. While the fifth season was said to be renewed back in March, it will come as early as next year in 2019.
Additionally, many people believed that the Black Mirror special Bandersnatch was meant to stand in for a fifth season. However, insiders cleared up any confusion and confirmed that a new roster of episodes is in the works.
“Netflix has told me that the fifth season of Black Mirror is still to come in 2019,” Buzzfeed TV Editor Scott Bryan says in a tweet. “Bandersnatch was not the fifth season, but a standalone interactive film, in case you were wondering.”

Additionally, it looks like Miley Cyrus is set to make some sort of appearance in the tech-driven sci-fi show. The singer joined Howard Stern for his Sirius XM show earlier today where she chatted about her upcoming Saturday Night Live appearance and ran through “Silent Night” with Stern’s co-host Robin Quivers.
Cyrus stated she was out of town filming in South Africa, confirming previous rumors she was in Cape Town on the the show’s set. However, Cyrus wouldn’t blatantly state what she was filming for Black Mirror while on Stern’s show.
“If you guess it, then I will shake my head ‘yes,’” she tells Stern. He then revealed to his listeners that she confirmed the news. However, Cyrus explained she hasn’t actually stated the series’ name as she hasn’t been given clearance to speak about her role.
