Buzzfeed Editor Scott Byran comfirmed through a tweet recently.

Making Bandersnatch on such a groundbreaking interactive format is all-consuming. Nevertheless, while talking to The New York Times, creator Charlie Brooker reassured that he is working on Black Mirror Season 5 and it will soon release on the streaming platform. “We’re doing more optimistic episodes and stories, rather than just dystopian and negative ones,” he said. “We want to keep the show interesting for us.”

The first two seasons  of Black Mirror did have a background of dark and nihilistic episodes but we sure are excited to watch the "more optimistic" episodes. Netflix is currently streaming the first four seasons along with the latest feature-length interactive episode, titled Black Mirror: Bandersnatch. The series will return for a fifth season but no premiere date has been set at this time.
