Dark: Netflix's new German-language drama series looks terrifying

'Nothing is normal in this town - and we all know it'

Dark - Teaser

New Netflix drama Dark looks like it could emulate the success achieved by sleeper hit Stranger Things last summer.

However, going by the first trailer, it seems as if this German-language series will be targeted squarely at adults as opposed to the aforementioned nostalgia-laden series.

Like Stranger Things, it tells the story of a child gone missing, an event which “...sets four families on a frantic hunt for answers [that] unearth a small town’s sins and secrets”.

At first glance, it looks as if the series will be a straightforward crime tale, however the trailer's final line suggest things may be more mind-bending than first thought.

“The question isn't who kidnapped the children,” the voiceover can be heard saying. “But when?”

Dark is currently being shot in suburban Berlin and will debut on the streaming service this winter, a few months after the October release date of Stranger Things season two.
