The Los Gatos, California-based company is developing specials that will let its users decide the next storyline, Bloomberg said, citing people familiar with the matter.

Netflix had earlier released the animated programme “Puss in Book” where viewers could choose alternate endings of the same show.

The first project of the new lineup is expected to be released by the end of this year, and Netflix’s popular sci-fi show “Black Mirror” will feature an episode under this project.

Netflix was not immediately available for comments.
