How seriously? They want to let you choose how the show ends.

According to Bloomberg, season five will premiere in December 2018, and the interactive episode will only be the beginning of several projects so that the viewer can interact with the series. Essentially, users will be able to choose what happens to their characters before they inescapably get trapped in some sort of dystopian world.

Even so, a choose your own adventure type feature seems like the ideal fit for Black Mirror.

Netflix upended the business model of television by delivering new episodes of a season all at once - letting viewers watch shows on-demand rather than live. You won't even have to get in the director's chair or set foot in the writer's room to have total control over the storyline. The first of these interactive episodes is expected to be included in the fifth season of Charlie Brooker's anthology series Black Mirror, which is rumored to debut this December. Apparently, Netflix plans to create one more project with the choose-your-own-adventure feature incorporated into it, so there will be at least one more movie or show with the concept. Telltale Games, the company that was working with Netflix on the show, recently laid off most of its staff.

Netflix previously tested its plausibility with kids TV show Puss in Book, and is now testing it out for adult shows as well. Mosaic, a six-part murder mystery by Steven Soderbergh was released with interactive options on the HBO app though in that program viewer choice only impacted what perspective the story was told from, not the actual plot. Though, considering we're talking about Netflix and 'Black Mirror, ' it seems it would be impossible for the experience to not be as thrilling and exciting as we are expecting it to be. At this point we don't really know how exactly the interactivity will work, but both publications reported that it will be a sort of choose-your-own-adventure thing.
