[Editors Note: The following article contains a spoiler for “Dark” Season 1 spoilers ahead]
“Maniac” isn’t the only Netflix series debuting some exciting first look photos this week. The streaming giant has debuted the first official look at the second season of their science-fiction horror series “Dark.” The photos are an early sneak peek at the show’s return, as principal photography on Season 2 doesn’t kick off in full until June in and around Berlin.
Created by Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese, “Dark” is notable for being Netflix’s first German-language original series. The series earned comparisons to “Stranger Things” early on because its story centered around a small town rocked by the disappearance of a child, but it became clear over its 10-episode season that “Dark” was far more heady. The show’s multi-timeline mystery had more in common with Christopher Nolan than the Duffer brothers.
The “Dark” Season 2 first look finds Jonas Kahnwald (Louis Hofmann) navigating a post-apocalyptic village. As “Dark” fans already know, Season 1 ended on a major cliffhanger as Jonas was transported to a new timeline in the year 2052. The photos below suggest the town of Winden is quite bleak several years into the future.
“Dark” does not have a Season 2 release date, but production begins June 25. Expect the series to return to Netflix in early 2019.
