Netflix shines a light on Dark’s release date with new trailer
4th October 2017
The question is not where, who or how – but when. That’s the enigmatic mystery at the heart of Netflix’s new original series, which looks set to rival Stranger Things for strange happenings, spooky moods and supernatural twists.
The show is the first Netflix original programme entirely authored, produced and shot in Germany. Dark is 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. In 10, hour-long episodes, the story takes an unusual turn that ties back to the same town in 1986.
It stars newcomers Louis Hofmann and Lisa Vicari, as well as established stage and TV actors with careers spanning arthouse cinema and critically acclaimed German TV shows (Oliver Masucci, Jördis Triebel, Karoline Eichhorn and Angela Winkler). It’s produced by Wiedemann & Berg (The Lives of Others), with Swiss filmmakers Baran Bo Odar and Jantje Friese (Who Am I?) on directing and writing duties respectively.
Now, we know the first mystery behind the series: Dark will premiere worldwide on Friday 1st December. Here’s the new trailer announcing the date:
Das new Stranger Things? Netflix unveils trailer for German original series Dark
1st March 2017
Netflix has unveiled the trailer for its first German original series, Dark – and if you liked Stranger Things, you may well love this.
The 10-part series follows the disappearance of two young children in the small German town of Winden. Four families begin a frantic hunt for answers, and their search for a culprit takes them on a surprising journey that leads all the way back to the same town in 1986.
The programme stars newcomers Louis Hofmann and Lisa Vicari, as well as established stage and TV actors with careers spanning arthouse cinema and critically acclaimed German TV shows (Oliver Masucci, Jördis Triebel, Karoline Eichhorn and Angela Winkler). It’s produced by Wiedemann & Berg (The Lives of Others), with Swiss filmmakers Baran Bo Odar and Jantje Friese (Who Am I?) on directing and writing duties respectively.
Double lives, weird secrets, fractured relationships and hidden sins? Dark is already shaping up to be an interesting watch – with the promise of chronological conundrums only adding to the intrigue.
The show was announced at Netflix’s event in Berlin today, in which CEO Reed Hastings re-emphasised the streaming giant’s commitment to investing in European production. Since 2012, Netflix has spent more than $1.75 billion on licensed, original and co-productions across the continent, an ever growing investment that to date includes more than 90 original productions in various stages of development.
“We know compelling stories can come from anywhere and no matter their origin, can resonate with audiences around the world,” said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer. “In fact, of the European shows available on Netflix last year, more than half of watchers came from outside of Europe.”
Dark lands on Netflix worldwide in winter 2017. Here’s the trailer:
