Netflix Renews Supernatural Drama ‘Dark’ for Season Two

Series is Compared to the Digital Streamer's 'Stranger Things'

Netflix has greenlit a second season of supernatural themed German-language scripted drama “Dark,” with an unconfirmed number of new episodes. The first season, which was made available for streaming on December 1, focused on the disappearance of two young children in the German town of Winden that brought light to the fractured relationships, double lives, and the dark past of four families living there, revealing a mystery that spanned three generations.

“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,” said Kelly Luegenbiehl, Vice President of International Originals for Netflix. “’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.”
