If anything, we're sorta surprised it took this long to happen. The fourth season of Charlie Brooker's technophobic Twilight Zone riff landed on Netflix several months ago, and the response was ... well, it was about as divisive a response as we've come to expect from the Black Mirror viewership: some people loved the new batch of episodes, some claimed it was just the latest piece of evidence suggesting Brooker's series is running on fumes.
BMD is largely a pro-Black Mirror household, so we're thrilled to learn it's coming back. Obviously, there's not much to go on here - no announced directors, no news regarding the number of episodes, no idea when season five might hit your Netflix dashboard - but we'll be keeping our ear to the ground for updates.
Stay tuned, and feel free to pass the time by ranking Black Mirror's latest round of episodes in the comments below
