Horror and sci-fi fans who found Stanger Things a bit too saccharine fell in love with the German series Dark in 2017. While the two shows have many similarities (a small town, a looming government institution, potentially supernatural happenings) but Dark has a time travel component that makes it a true mind-bender.
After bouncing between the past and the present, the first season of Dark ultimately landed the show’s primary protagonist in the future. For a glimpse of what happens next, check out the trailer for Dark Season 2 embedded at the top of the article.
When two children go missing in a small German town, its sinful past is exposed along with the double lives and fractured relationships that exist among four families as they search for the kids. The mystery-drama series introduces an intricate puzzle filled with twists that includes a web of curious characters, all of whom have a connection to the town’s troubled history — whether they know it or not. The story includes supernatural elements that tie back to the same town in 1986. Dark represents the first German original series produced for Netflix.
Dark is created by Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese; the show stars Oliver Masucci, Karoline Eichhorn, and Jördis Triebel. Look for Season 2 to arrive on Netflix beginning June 21st.
