Season 2 update: editing on the last episode of S2 is almost complete...showrunner Baran bo Odar posted this image...

https://i.redd.it/fs58rkj7qtk21.png

in case people don't understand what that image is...it's editing software (most likely Avid Media Composer)...video on the top, audio on the bottom...this can only mean that an official announcement is coming soon and the rumors of a June release are looking good

Glad to hear it will end with season 3, this is a brilliant show but the longer it goes on the harder to keep us interested. I am way excited for season 2 and now have to find time to rewatch season 1.

I'd rather see the show end on its own terms with a finite story rather then see them stretch it out to extend the series...that teaser for S2 looked really good...looks like they gave the show a much bigger budget as some of the special effects and scenes looked much more visually impressive

This is not a complaint but you are on to something. The formula for a hit series is to obfuscate the story as much as possible and generally play it non linearly to further confuse the audience.

Very true. The eye continuity across timelines is perplexing to a degree. I can't seem to think it's a oversight.



I am curious of Noah's time origin . He was in 1953 ,1986 appearing the same age.

TBH Im fan of Stranger Things fan and i could care less about its release on July 4. Definitely will binge this when it comes out, by June 23rd I will be clamoring for the Triquetra finale.

Is Hannah as bad as she seems? Is Jonas a good guy, he did open the portal? Is Regina the lovechild of Tronte and Claudia? Did Mikkel kill himself because Hannah was banging his dad? Inquiring minds want to know

I like Stranger Things a lot and am definitely looking forward to S3 dropping on July 4th but Dark is my current favorite show...it's brilliantly written, acted and is really smart...I hope S2 lives up to the hype...if so the Dark trilogy will go down as one of the all time great sci-fi shows

You should watch again.

After doing so i notice Claudia has one green eye and one blue eye across the timeline. That said they can't have disregarded eye color with Noah, Bartosz ,Jonas and the stranger. Pretty sure that Noah was once married to Agnes Nielsen. Which would mean that Jonas is Ulrichs grandfather, Mikkels great grandfather, yet he's his dad. Paradox of epic proportion

Re-watched the entire 1st season over the weekend in preparation for season 2. Man, am I glad we did. We hardly remembered anything. We remembered a scene here, a line here, but we were enthralled all the way through the season as if it was the first time we'd seen it. Can't wait for season 2.

it's the mark of a great show when subsequent viewings are just as good as the first time watching...

I'm doing the same thing. I also highly recommend some of the family trees that are out there, they were helpful the first time around, and just as helpful now getting ready for Season 2.

Dark Season 2 non-spoiler Review: Still Great, but We Can't Say Why Without Netflix Killing Us

Season 2, which debuts Friday, continues to bounce between different timelines and generally make its viewers' brains feel like jelly...Posing complex questions about determinism and free will, coupled with its overt religious undertones, Dark has lofty narrative ambitions, and it continues to nail them at every twist and turn...Through the four episodes screened for critics, Dark barrels through its ever-complicating story, picking up steam as more and more layers are uncovered, creating even more questions as others are finally being answered...But the reason it all works and never feels too wild or like it's happening too fast is because the story is grounded in the emotions of the characters...

To put it simply, and without pissing off the Netflix gods, everything viewers loved about the German series in Season 1 is still there in Season 2...Dark excels at building a compelling mystery, and the fact that it never loses the plot itself is a testament to the writing of the series...

https://www.tvguide.com/news/dark-se...eview-netflix/

I can't wait to start watching Season 2!!

As much as I would like to re-watch season 1, I really don't have the time. Can anyone point out a good recap of season 1? Thanks.

just finished a rewatch of Season 1...now everything is fresh in my mind in preparation for Season 2...truly amazing show...so well constructed...how the writers were able to keep track of all the ripple effects of cause-and-effect time travel paradoxes while simultaneously telling the story of these missing kids is truly amazing...made even more impressive by the fact that it's an original story and not adapted from a book or some other source...Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese deserve a lot of credit for coming up with this brilliant and mind melting story......kudos to the casting director as well...the younger versions of most of the characters look uncannily similar to their older counterparts throughtout the timelines...teenage Ulrich in particular looks so much like older Ulrich

another cool thing is that because of the events of the final episode all 3 Helge's are now in the same time period of 1986 (1953 Helge, 1986 Helge and 2019 Helge)...do any of the events on this show occur as a result of free will or is everything already pre-determined?...it seems like anytime a character goes back in time to prevent some major event from happening, it ends up being the cause of the event...for example older Jonas detonated the time travel device with the intention of closing the wormhole but may have actually created it...Ulrich goes back to 1953 and tries to kill young Helga but ends up creating the monster that he would eventually become...the show is fascinating on so many levels not just for the phylosophical questions it raises but the answers are immensely satisfying as well...

one final question to ponder...did Helge give the 'Journey Through Time' book to Claudia in 1986 knowing the future/present/past and was trying to switch sides and betray Noah?...it seems like the only 2 characters who truly know what's going on are Noah and Claudia

Bring On Season 2!!!
