The first original German series on Netflix promises to bring mystery and suspense to the streaming platform next winter.


A series dubbed by some like site Gizmodo to be the “next Stranger Things”, Dark tells the story of how a child gone missing “sets four families on a frantic hunt for answers [that] unearth a small town’s sins and secrets”.

The first trailer to give anxious viewers a glimpse of the thriller was released on Wednesday.

Netflix’s Stranger Things released last summer drew a cult following for its 1980s sci-fi throwback style.

The German show Dark is the first Netflix original show produced in Germany. The show is set to be shot in Berlin and the surrounding area, according to a company statement made in October.

So will the first German series take off like its binge-watch-worthy American counterpart? Let us know what you think of the trailer on Facebook.
