In the land of horror/sci-fi television series’, is any network hotter than Netflix right now? Proving that you don’t even have to speak English to woo an English-speaking audience, Netflix’s newest genre series Dark debuted on December 1st and has already been greenlit for a second season. That’s not to say that the show isn’t a hit overseas as well because it certainly is.
Created by Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese, Dark takes place in the German town of Winden and follows the events surrounding the disappearance of two children which sets four families on a frantic hunt for answers as they unearth a mind-bending mystery that spans three generations.
In speaking with Deadline about the renewal, bo Odar and Friese said, “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.”
Stay gory my friends,
