Published Mar 01, 2017It's tempting to compare every Netflix original to Stranger Things in the wake of the wildly popular show, and some people are already doing that with Dark. But while the show does have a missing children narrative, it looks like it's own beast entirely.
Dark is the first German-language original series for the streaming service. It's set in Winden, Germany, and looks like a seriously terrifying supernatural thriller.
Director Baran bo Odar spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the show, saying, "We had absolute creative freedom. We could cast whoever we wanted, the actors who fit best for the role. Netflix gave us a budget and a couple of notes and let us do it."
Watch the trailer for Dark below, and look for the show to arrive this winter.
