Where is Dark season 2 set?
Dark season two will once again be set in the fictional German town of Winden in 2020.
The first series ended with Jonas (played by Louis Hoffman) travelling to the post-apocalyptic town of Winden in the year 2052.
Netflix has already released two images of his character trying to make his way through the abandoned town.
In a supernatural twist, Dark also includes storylines set in the past as a result of time-travel by the four main families – the Tiedemann’s, the Doppler’s, the Nielsen’s and the Kahnwald’s.
The first episode of Dark season two begins in the year 1921.
WHO IS IN THE CAST OF DARK SEASON 2?
In the trailer for the new series, which you can watch above, a timeline appears with the years 195(YEAR), 1986 and 2019, which suggests 1921, 2020 and 2052 are not the only years the four families will be visiting.
The series will also pick up from the huge cliffhanger of season one when Michael (Sebastian Rudolph) took his own life.
Viewers will be hoping to hear an explanation as to why he ended his life and also why he was always covered in black ink when Jonas visited him.
For the new series of Dark, the show creators Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese decided to begin the new series with a clean slate.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter Odar said: “Let’s pretend no one watched the show and what story do we want to tell? And then we went there and now never really think of the audience.“
