If you were at all worried that the bleak, existential dread — OK, OK, and occasional hope — that Black Mirror fills you with each time you watch a new batch of episodes was over for good, don't be. Netflix confirmed on Monday that Charlie Brooker's critically acclaimed, mind-melting sci-fi anthology series is officially returning for a fifth season. The exciting news was announced via Twitter in a video that featured clips from previous seasons, along with the caption, "The future will be brighter than ever." A release date is still TBD, but never fear — that just means we have plenty of time to obsess over each and every wild fan theory that came out of season four.
