Dark, Netflix’s German time-travel thriller that premiered on Friday, December 1 2017, will return for its third season on Saturday, June 27. Read our recap of the previous two seasons before diving into season three.
The story kicks off with the disappearance of an 11-year-old boy Mikkel Nielson (Daan Lennard Liebrenz) from Winden, a town that has been experiencing unusual child abductions. Mikkel vanished while a group of kids were looking for a cave concealing a stash of drugs belonging to Erik Obdendorf, the boy who disappeared before Mikkel. Martha (Mikkel’s sister), Magnus (his brother), and a bunch of mates including Bartosz Tiedemann, Franziska Doppler and Jonas Kahnwald were a part of the investigation.
Jonas Kahnwald, travels back and forth through time (33 years) to save Winden and its people from an approaching nuclear catastrophe. As more people begin to skip through time and look back at their past, they’re appalled to find how connected they all are.
Major revelations were made in the second season of the series. We discovered that Claudia Tiedermann (Julika Jenkins), the ex nuclear power plant chief, is the white devil who has been carrying the missing pages from the leather notebook with secrets; Jonas is responsible for Mikkel’s death; Noah, the time-travel priest, is Charlotte’s father and that the past can never be changed.
