Dark is the first German original show which is airing on Netflix. It seems that this web series managed to win the hearts of the target audience that was impressed with another Netflix hit Stranger Things. Dark has received a brilliant reception by critics and viewers. As a result, Netflix opted to pick up the show for a second season. The decision was announced on December 20, 2017. The production started in 2018.
Perhaps you don't know that Dark has become one of the most-watched non-English series on Netflix, according to the official report by the network. Moreover, the show turned sensational across the globe. This global effect proves that the elaborated script worth more than visual effects. But still, we believe that Stranger Things served a trigger for such series as The OA and Dark. Indeed, it's terrible when someone is vanishing, and nobody knows what happened to him, especially if we're talking about a kid.
As mentioned above, the show deserved the renewal thanks to the impressive response from critics and viewers. On Rotten Tomatoes, Dark holds a score of 7.14/10 and an 88% approval rating from critics, while the viewers have rated the 1st round of the web series at 4.3/5 and have given a 88 % rating as well.

The story takes place in the German town of Winden, where two children have vanished. These tragic events shed light on the dark past of four local families within three generations. In the first season, the storyline unfolds during three time periods, in 2019, 1986, and 1953. The show's protagonists are Jonas Kahnwald, a teenage boy, who can't come to terms with his father's sudden death; Ulrich Nielsen, a cop, whose brother vanished many years ago; and Charlotte Doppler, a police chief. The plot brings the title characters to a wormhole, hidden in the cave system located under the local nuclear power plant owned by the powerful Tiedemann family.
