Netflix German-language drama Dark has been renewed for a second season after becoming the most watched non-English show on the platform.
The series, created by Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese, is a family saga set in a German town in present day where the disappearance of two young children exposes the double lives and fractured relationships among four families.
“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. 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,” said Kelly Luegenbiehl, vp international originals for Netflix.
“We are overwhelmed by the response to Dark and are thrilled that our story has been a success with a global audience,” added Odar and Friese. “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.”
