Critic Reviews for Dark Season 2

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (9)

"Dark" is a rewarding investment in time spent in untangling the family trees and timelines. It's also an intriguing experiment in how looped events and themes of determinism can play into growth and evolution.

Jun 21, 2019 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

I will not say "Dark" was over-hyped; until the last four episodes of the second season or so, I was entranced by "Dark's" imagination.

Nov 19, 2019 | Full Review…

Dark takes this quintessential time travel paradox and cubes it, adding so many paradoxes and logic wrinkles that keeping track of them all can give you a headache. But there's something entertaining about the intellectual rigor all the same.

Sep 6, 2019 | Full Review…

"Dark," the German time-travel thriller, is often compared to the Duffer Brothers' nostalgia trip. But in its second season, its ambitions are closer to "The Wire."

Jul 16, 2019 | Full Review…

Perhaps the best way to enjoy "Dark" is just to let it pass over you, as weightily satisfying as the thunk that the doors of the show's many German station wagons make when they're shut.

Jul 15, 2019 | Full Review…

If you can take the morose vibe, the series is beautifully filmed in grey/green hues, and maintains its mood of impending doom rather brilliantly.

Jul 9, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Refreshing, confusing and perfectly, season 2 of this puzzle gets more creative using the same characters and settles itself as a prime example of 'time travel stuff'. [Full review in Spanish].

Apr 8, 2020 | Full Review…

What an amazing piece of work! The best sci-fi series of the 21st century. Everything is too good to be true.

Nov 19, 2019 | Full Review…

It takes the traditional beginning, middle and end story structure and tears it apart to build something brilliant and entirely unpredictable... But if you thought season one was a wild ride, the second chapter went to places even we weren't prepared for.

Nov 18, 2019 | Full Review…

An intelligent and complex series that doesn't talk down to viewers, this is one of the most intriguing shows out there, with a second season that maintains the high quality of the first.

Nov 18, 2019 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

An ambitious and revelatory season. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 31, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The second season of Dark shows that it is one of the most original and ambitious Netflix shows to date, without even being an American production. [Full Review in Spanish]

Audience Reviews for Dark: Season 2

  • May 06, 2021
    Season 1 is just an exercise to get your brain going for Season 2. The visuals, the music, and the acting alone are all incredible. The twists and turns in the plot are truly something.
  • Apr 21, 2021
    Wow! If you liked the first season you'll be fascinated by the second. They absolutely miss no details. It becomes more complicated and there is more travels, but it is how we like it. It becomes more and more related to mythology too. In a brief synopsis, this show has brilliant soundtracks, brilliant story, brilliant actors and extraordinary cinematography. A brilliant second season of an incredibly awesome show.
  • Apr 03, 2021
    Mysterious, entertaining, clever, with genial twists. One of the best series of all times. Probably season 2 is the best of the 3.
  • Mar 23, 2021
    Controversial opinion here, but I found the first season to be better, this should in no way detracts from the greatness of this season, S1 was just a really hard thing to follow. Some explanation here, I loved season 1, but season 2 started off on the wrong foot for me, though I'm not sure exactly why. I see why people feel the characters became more likable this season, but it simply wasn't as faultless for me, I felt the first few episodes could have been better. Though I will admit, around episode 6 onwards it gets much better, hitting the sweet spot again.

    If you want to watch Masterpiece then watch DARK
  • Mar 14, 2021
    Dark continues to develop its satisfyingly complex narrative in the second season with twists no one could ever imagine.
  • Jan 14, 2021
    More happened in this series than in earlier ones, and the characters actually had to face some changes, but the liberal political angles started to manifest themselves, both holistically and specifically, which soured pretty fast on me. Just not quite there.
  • Dec 24, 2020
    Masterpiece! The best series as finished artwork for the last several years at least.
  • Nov 27, 2020
    The series that will blow all your imaginations away, leaving you speechless and in awe. Absolute perfection in every possible aspects: out of the box writing, casting, cinematography, costume, makeup, and soundtrack. The best Netflix series ever | follow us at @uncle.review

    Dark keeps you guessing at every turn. Just when you think you've seen every trick of time travel, the next plot twist catches you by surprise. Time travel stories are fun because they break all the rules of how stories are made. A hero and a villain can be one and the same. The individuals at war are not despicable for what they take from each other, but what they take from themselves. Mistakes are repeated before they are made. Lost loved ones live whole lifetimes in plain sight, unrecognized. This fantastically twisted tale plays every card well, and in the end it shines a surreal new light on human nature.
