Dark Season 2 renewed or cancelled on Netflix?
Netflix has yet to officially scare up a renewal, but director Baran Odar has confirmed plans for a second season of the spooky crime drama, noting that much like Season 1, it won’t be constricted by a ridged structure, per IndieWire:
“We will definitely, for example, follow Jonas. He is one of the main characters where most of the stuff actually happens. So we will truly stay close to him, but shift some of the storylines to other characters. It’s just like creating this world with all these different children. You like some of them more, some less.”
Writer Jantje Friese notes that Dark Season 2 won’t exclusively follow older versions of established characters:
“We’ve done our thinking, and the second season would put more light on other people in the character structures we haven’t been through that much, while not losing some of the ones that you kind of came closer to. But also introducing new ones, while maybe killing some other ones. We actually have a lot of ideas where to take it.”
“During the process, you just realize and get other ideas, like, ‘Oh, this could be an interesting storyline with that character and we never thought about that,’” bo Odar said. “Like, for example, I love that secretary who works in the ’80s for Claudia. I love that person. I just want to know more about her. If we can actually tell more about her, we will see. But just like, looking at this world, I think that there are many possibilities. But again, we will see if there will be more seasons or not.”
