While previous titles in Netflix's Choose Your Own Adventure formula have been season-long adventures, this Black Mirror venture will only last a single episode that, according to Bloomberg, will be part of the show's fifth season that's due to come out in December.

In addition to the interactive episode of Black Mirror, Netflix is also developing other original projects based around that idea as well.

Right now, Netflix does offer choose-your-own-adventure style storytelling for kids' programming.

I'm one of the reasons we lost Ryder Cup, says Woods
Mickelson was desperate to make this team because the 48-year-old saw it as his last chance to win a Ryder Cup on European soil. It's the sixth consecutive Ryder Cup on home soil that Europe has won; the last time the US has won in Europe is 1993.

Trump says he wants 'comprehensive' FBI investigation of Kavanaugh
The Supreme Court likes to view itself as the quiet at the center of the storm, and it has never been more so than this week. Kavanaugh had denied the accusation, and both he and Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee last Thursday.

Cubs-Brewers Tickets Available Starting Sunday Night
The Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers have one more game to play to decide the victor of the National League Central. The Dodgers and the Rockies will play their own No. 163 following the Cubs-Brewers game on ESPN at around 3:09 pm CT.

It's worth noting that Black Mirror isn't the only show to allow viewers to choose their own path. HBO got ambitious with Steven Soderbergh's Mosaic, which had an app that allowed viewers to see the storyline from different perspectives and play it out in an order of their choosing. At the very least, it's not like Black Mirror needs a gimmick to stay popular, so I'm curious to see what the show does with it. It appears that the rollout was a success since they're moving forward with more mature original content. (Nothing like binging some psychologically-scarring television around the holidays!) But the real news is that in one episode from the new season, viewers will be able to interact with the story and make decisions to determine the ending. After watching one version, the viewer can go back and choose the alternate scenario.

Bloomberg reports that an episode of the next season of Black Mirror will be the first interactive show designed for adult viewers.

This is about as Black Mirror as Black Mirror is going to get. With that being said, Netflix will probably start the promotional campaign for Season 5 in the next month, preparing fans for the unique interactive episode.
