The German sci-fi thriller series Dark is back with its third and final eight-episode season on Netflix coming June 27. TVGuide provides the official description for the newly-released trailer, “a conclusion in a strange new world, where some things are quite familiar — and others are disturbingly not.”
According to Netflix, “In the third and final season, Dark reaches its mind-bending conclusion, moving beyond the concept of space and time. Upon arrival in a new world, Jonas tries to make sense of what this rendition of Winden means for his own fate, while the ones left behind in the other world are left on a quest to break the loop that now not only bends time but also space. Two worlds. Light and dark. And in the center a tragic love story of epic proportions.”
In the show’s first two seasons, Dark leans heavily on horror and unease in the small, sleepy town Winden. This seemingly quiet town is the center of mystery; disappearances, violence and facades, and the theme of time is continually explored. Dark juxtaposes unconventional with a realistic portrayal of humanity and is set to deliver the same in the upcoming season.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, many of the series regulars return for the third season. Louis Hofmann (Centre of My World) returns as teenage Jonas, Jordis Triebel (One Breath) as Katharina, Lisa Vicari (Luna’s Revenge) as Martha, Mark Waschke (Summer Window) as Noah, Andreas Pietschmann (Belle & Sebastian) as older Jonas, and Lea van Acken (Stations of the Cross) as the unnamed girl from the future. Set to join the cast are Barbara Nusse (Holiday Secrets), Nina Kronjager (Windstorm), and Sammy Scheuritzel (Goodbye Berlin).
Dark co-creators and showrunners Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar in a statement said, “We will offer answers to the questions that our viewers have been asking and help untangle the story through time. It will be hard for us to walk away from those characters we have really grown fond of, but the beginning is the end, and the end is the beginning.”
Friese and Odar have a post-Dark project for Netflix lined up afterwards – historical horror series 1899. The drama series will focus on a crew of European migrants on their journey to New York, dreaming of a fresh start in the new world, but their trip goes awry. This is something to look forward to after the conclusion of the beloved sci-fi series Dark comes to an end.
