Netflix’s Sci-Fi Thriller ‘Dark’ Gets Renewed for Second Season

Following a strong critical reception – drawing comparisons to Stranger Things and Black MirrorNetflix has officially renewed its German language time-travel thriller Dark for a second season.

Dark is a self-serious family drama with supernatural themes and an emphasis on evoking intrigue, primarily revolving around the disappearance of a young boy. It’s one of the most popular non-English speaking television series on Netflix, which is no small feat, and the first season left plenty of pressing questions unanswered.

Dark, Season 1

A mishmash of timelines and an ambitious science-fiction focus made season one a slightly confusing watch at times, but the presence of issues makes the prospect of a second season interesting rather than exasperating. There’s an ongoing story which can be continued and avenues which are left unexplored, meaning that viewers have a reason to return to the series.

Add to this an intensely beautiful visual aesthetic and solid performances from the main cast and you have a series which, whilst imperfect, is certainly worth watching.

As such, the commissioning of season two is something which fans of science-fiction can cautiously look forward to in the not so distant future.
