Netflix dropped German science fiction thriller web television, Dark in December 2017 and it became an overnight sensation. Fans went drooling over the series and binge-watched entire season. Thanks to the marketing team who promoted the series as European version of most of the popular show of all time Stranger Things.
Dark concerns the aftermath of a child’s disappearance which exposes the secrets of, and hidden connections among, four estranged families as they slowly unravel a sinister time travel conspiracy which spans three generations. Throughout the series, Dark explores the existential implications of time and its effects on human nature.
Netflix released the second season of Dark nearly one and a half year later and it was a even bigger. Soon after the season 2 was released, social media got flooded with the demand for Dark season 3. Seeing the unprecedented success of the German series, creators decided to release season 3. Co-creator Jantje Friese revealed that they didn’t expect the show to perform that well and it bamboozled them.
“It’s something you hope for, but it actually hit us really hard,” said co-creator Jantje Friese. “Two weeks after the release of season one, I was on Twitter honestly 24 hours a day. I was so miserable because… somehow you’re really more prepared for failure then success I guess. It was a very, very odd time, but also great to know the fans just embraced what you’ve done so much. It’s heart-wrenching and really put a lot of press pressure on season two. For two or four weeks I was completely lost to the world.”
Dark Season 3 Release Date
There is no official annoucement on the release of Dark Season 3. However, it is believed that Dark season 3 will release on June 27, 2020. Apparently, viewers might witness in the launch date due to ongoing coronavirus pandemic that has put creators and production in the lockdown. You shouldn’t get surprised if the release of Dark Season 3 shifts to later part of 2020.

The brand-new characters signing up for the show
Dark is the type of program that tends to provide you a migraine if you start supposing about it. There are policies to the time travel on the program: Everything is a cycle and the past can not be transformed, and also there’s a whole lot of incest and also confusing family relationships, like the discovery that Elisabeth and also Charlotte are each other’s mommies(???). But whether you have actually galaxy-brained until your mind blows up, or you’re so amazed by the Season 2 ending that you have actually quit attempting to anticipate what’s next– everything will certainly serve a function in Period 3.
Jantje Friese once said, “The basic idea of Season 3 was something that we already had when we started. There are also a lot of things in Season 1 hinting to Season 3. Also, we actually thought about putting some of the stuff that’s now in Season 3 into Season 2, but then decided to move it backwards. So basically now everything that’s left just falls into Season 3.”
