Dark took the audience by storm when it first premiered on Netflix. The German sci-fi thriller tv-series is co-created by Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese. The series has released three seasons till date and has 26 episodes in total. The third and the most recent season was released on 27 June 2020. The show has received critical acclaim because of its complex ideas and storytelling. Also, many consider it to be one of the modern masterpieces.
Dark Season 4: Storyline
Dark is set in the fictitious German town of Winden. The series focuses on the dark past of the four families living there. The complex and messy relations between the family introduces plenty of drama into the series. Moreover, complex ideas such as the idea of time, time paradoxes, ramifications of time travel are also explored in the acclaimed series.
The story begins in 2019 but branches off to multiple other timelines. Certain characters uncover a sinister conspiracy regarding the fate of the families and the town itself. In the third season, the characters try to break out of the repeating cycle of events.
Dark Season 4: Release date
Fans of the series would be disappointed to know that a fourth season of the fan-favorite series won’t be happening. As the creators of the series have decided to end it. Though Netflix has been canceling many shows recently, the decision to finish dark was a creative one. Back in May 2019, before the second season of the series hit the screens, Baran bo Odar, one of the show’s co-creators announced that the plan had always been to make Dark a three-season series. So Netflix respected the creative choice and allowed the series to be concluded.
Dark Season 4: Expected plot
As we’ve said before, we probably won’t see a new season of Dark. But, if in the future the show gets renewed, there is plenty more to explore. Since the story is centred on the concept of time and time loops, a new timeline where the events of season 3 didn’t happen can be delved in. The plot of the fourth season could feature alternate realities. This would allow the creators to tell an infinite number of stories.
Dark Season 4: Possible cast & characters
Dark boasts a strong and complex bunch of cast and characters. Though season 4 of Dark is out of the cards for now, if the series does get picked up we expect most of the cast and characters to return. A new season of the series would probably have the following cast & characters
- Louis Hoffman, Andreas Pietschmann and Dietrich Hollinderbäumer as the teen, adult and elder versions of Jonas Kahnwald (respectively)
- Ella Lee and Maja Schöne as the teen and adult versions of Hannah Kahnwald
- Lisa Vicari, Nina Kronjäger and Barbara Nüsse as the teen, adult and elder incarnations of Martha Nielsen
- Carlotta von Falkenhayn and Sandra Borgmann as the child and adult incarnations of Elisabeth Doppler
They would probably be joined by many other recurring characters.
