Netflix Renews Trippy Time Travel Series Dark for a Second Season



If you haven’t checked out the German series “Dark” on Netflix, you are missing one of the best – and most mind-bending – shows around. Here at DC we binged Season 1 and were left with more questions than answers, so it’s a very good thing that the streaming giant has gifted us with a second season to (hopefully) tie up a few loose ends.

If you haven’t watched the first season of “Dark” yet, we advise you to do so stat! If you have, here’s the official word on Season 2.

From the Press Release:
Netflix has renewed its first German original production, “DARK,” for a second season. The acclaimed drama created by Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese has resonated with audiences in Germany and around the world, including the U.S., Brazil, Italy, Turkey, Spain, and France among other countries. “DARK,” a family saga with a supernatural twist, is now one of the most-watched entirely non-English shows on Netflix, a German series that transcends borders to connect with audiences in every country.

Kelly Luegenbiehl, Vice President of International Originals for Netflix, said: “When we first heard about ‘DARK,’ we realized very early on that we hadn’t seen anything like this show before — in Germany or anywhere else in the world. ‘DARK’ is a testament that great storytelling transcends geography. We’re excited that our members around the globe are captivated by the mysterious world of Winden and will now be able to continue to see how the story unfolds.”

Showrunners Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese added the following statement about the audience reception and the Season 2 renewal: “We are overwhelmed by the response to ‘DARK’ and are thrilled that our story has been a success with a global audience. Viewers have been captivated by the secrets of our protagonists and have taken delight in unraveling the various puzzles that the story presents. To know that we will now embark on our next journey is, for us showrunners, a dream come true. And our fans can be sure that we have plenty of surprises in store for the second season of ‘DARK.’”

Producer Quirin Berg concludes: “Jantje Friese, Baran Bo Odar, our wonderful actors, and our fantastic team have put an incredible amount of energy into making ‘DARK’ a unique and gripping series. We thank all of those who have accompanied us on this path. And we thank Netflix for their trust and for the excellent cooperation. We are extremely happy that ‘DARK’ has by now received such an overwhelming response, both in Germany and around the world; and we are particularly thrilled about the quick decision by Netflix to take it into a second season. We can hardly wait to continue telling the story!”

“DARK” is now streaming on Netflix.

“Dark” is set in a German town in present day where the disappearance of two young children exposes the double lives and fractured relationships among four families. In ten hour-long episodes, the story takes on a supernatural twist that ties back to the same town in 1986. Written by Jantje Friese and directed by Baran bo Odar (Who Am I – No System is Safe), “Dark” is a chilling mystery-drama series: an intricate puzzle full of twists. Slick camerawork and realistic performances enhance a textured web of curious characters, all of whom have a connection to the town’s troubled history, whether they know it or not.
