Shooting for this third season is set to begin later this year for a release date in 2020.
This news comes just weeks before Netflix is set to drop all ten episodes of Dark’s second season on 21st June. Images released last year confirm that the time-hopping series will open with scenes set in 1921 and jump between timelines set in 2020, 1987 and 1954.
Dark first appeared on Netflix in 2016 as the streaming platform’s first original German-language series. It received excellent reviews from critics drawing comparisons to both Twin Peaks and Stranger Things.
