Netflix are set to make history a little later this year, when their first ever German original series Dark debuts on the streaming service. It looks to be one of the creepiest shows the streamer’s ever seen. This week, a brilliant new trailer and poster for the series has been revealed, which you can check out below:
Set in the present day in a German town where two young children have disappeared, the double lives and fractured relationships taking place within four families is exposed slowly, but surely. Across 10 hour-long episodes, the series soon turns supernatural, as it’s revealed there’s a twist in the tale that takes the town back to 1986.
Written by Jantje Friese, the series is co-created by acclaimed director Baran bo Odar (who also directs all 10 of the episodes), with early viewings promising realistic performances and slick camerawork, with relatable characters who all have some sort of connection to the history embedded within the town. Whether or not they know about that history remains to be seen, but we imagine it’s something that’s going to be exposed to each of them as the series progresses.
Friese previously spoke out about those who had compared the series to fellow Netflix original Stranger Things, saying: “It’s really exciting because if all those people who watched Stranger Things will at least think about watching Dark, I think that’s a great opportunity for us. So keep comparing it.”
We’ll have to see what the wider viewing public think of the show when it makes its official debut this December!
Dark comes to Netflix on December 1, 2017.
