Netflix is getting crafty with its reveals these days, while also playing smart with show descriptions that are creating a lot of buzz on social media. As a recent example, the streaming service can deliberately teased an end date for their license to Friends, only to seemingly renew the show’s contract a few hours later. Well, Netflix teased the heck out of black mirror fans with clues about the reported episode of Choose Your Own Adventure, which was then followed by fan speculation regarding the title, subject matter, and release date. There’s more madness to be had, according to the following screenshots.

Is all of this real? Netflix has not officially confirmed any of this again (and given the Friends expiration date switcheroo, we cannot reliably rely on screenshots as program-related confirmation). And when it comes to black mirrorreality is a tough business, but one detail so far is solid – Miley Cyrus will star soon in an episode. As for confirmation on anything else? They will come right back.
