Critic Reviews for Dark Season 2

"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.

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.

"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.

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.

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].

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…

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…

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

    Great story and fantastic characters. It is also pretty trippy. Can't wait for season 3 to come out, and want more recognition for the German film makers. First German Netflix original and it set a high bar. 10/10

    Dark Season 2 is equally strong in quality to its first season. Small issues with Season 1, like shallow character development and an overbearing score, are improved in this season. The show expands its scope, giving viewers more puzzle pieces to obsessively piece together, with the same strong production values and writing. It is clear the writers had the plot planned from the beginning, so the continuation is satisfying, and there are no inconsistencies between seasons. Some plot revelations are very conventional in sci-fi works, including a certain villain introduced in this season, which is mildly disappointing if one was hoping for something a bit more unique. Otherwise there is little to complain about.

    Talk about an intricate and complicated storyline. It's better than season 1. The plot is on par with something Christopher Nolan would have thought up. Season 2 is much more exciting than season 1, especially with all the jumping back and forth between time lines. The acting is decent but could definitely be better for some characters. I just wish it was all in English, it might have been easier to follow if it was. Some scenes just don't make sense and could have been done better. And the casting could have at least tried to get actors that look alike because a 17 year old and his 55 year old self should not look like a completely different person? And they should not sound so different. They could have at least cast the older character with the same height, body type, and hair, this goes for all of the female characters as well. These little things make a difference when telling such a complicated storyline? I mean seriously, the three guys that play Jonas look absolutely nothing a like...

    Best of Germany and best of Netflix by far

    I loved the first season and was super nervous about how season 2 would unfold, especially after the season 1 cliffhanger, but they knocked it out of the park! I was blown away!! And that season 2 cliffhanger!? Dark is the best TV show I have watched in many years. I was excited to see that it was picked as the best Netflix series in RT's audience fueled head to head poll and I can't wait until season 3 premieres.

    Buena serie, no se puede perder ni un segundo! Recomendada 🙌🏻🙌🏻

    Season 2 is actually a bit better than Season 1 and that's saying something. Decided to watch Season 1 all over again before tackling Season 2 and it was a great decision. There's simply too much going on to keep track of everything. The writing is fantastic, the acting is first rate, and the atmosphere is haunting. In other words, it's the exact opposite of most of the garbage found on network TV. I can hardly wait for the 3rd and final season.
