The past doesn’t just influence the future, the future also influences the past
For those of you who may not know, Dark is a German Netflix series, the first of its kind being completely authored, produced, cast and shot in Germany. Season 1 debuted in 2017 and since then the buzz has been nonstop. Fan reviews compare it to the likes of Game of Thrones and Stranger Things.
I thought there would never be a show that I’d become as obsessed with as Game of Thrones, but Dark pulled me in right from the start and I cannot say enough glowing comments about this series
Dark is a sci-fi thriller-mystery, it takes place in an imaginary town called Winden where two children go missing in 2019. The story revolves around four families with complicated pasts and intricate secrets. As the search begins, things start to unravel and secrets of the old threaten to come to life. Time travel doesn’t remain impossible anymore. Season 1 and 2 jumps between the years 1986, 1987, 1953-1954, 2019-2020 and 2051.
So what’s the due date?
Completed with its grotesque theme, a very well written storyline and its fair share of thrill, the series is a must-watch. Its ever-growing fan base will be pleased to know that Season 3 is scheduled to be released on June 27, 2020.
Who all will return?
Dark is famously known to have a complex character chart with each character having three different castes, one each for all the years of time travel. It has been confirmed that characters like Louis Hoffman, Andreas Pietschmann, Jordis Triebel, Lisa Viscardi, Mark Waschke and Lean Can Acken will definitely be seen.
What can we expect?
Dark’s production company Wiedemann & Berg Television had previously confirmed that the series will be a three-season instalment. Meaning, Season 3 is most probably the final season. Some reports suggest the buzz for a Season 4 but we will just have to wait and see.
We can expect season 3 to finally refine and reveal the rules of Time Travel and how it actually works. We can expect some of the questions (that have been bothering us for a while) to be answered. Season 2 suggested that the characters of Elizabeth and Charlotte may be parents to each other ( what? ).
All in all, everyone should get their bag of popcorn ready for what might be the final season of this twisted and slightly bizarre web series. If one thing is for certain, its that it will be filled with uncertainty.
