Dark is a German-based TV series. People from all over the world have found this TV series to be mesmerizing. The Series has gained most of its viewers in the Corona Lockdown.

Dark is a Science fiction TV series created by Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese. The Series was taken in the town of Winden in Germany.

Everything begins with the disappearance of Erik and the creators of Dark have played well enough to tangle up the thinking of a normal person in a good way.

When I started to watch the TV series and checked out the Genre I thought the series would resemble “Stranger Things” By The Duffer Brothers or like the movie “Inception” by Christopher Nolan. But taking everyone by surprise the TV series Dark is one of the most unexpected and mind-boggling series I have ever seen.

A cave-in middle of the forest discovered bu wandering teenage kids is the source main source around which the story is built upon. The story goes deep into connecting everyone from the present to the past creating a whirlpool in time and the protagonist Jonas tries to fix things up.

Dark TV series is available in both German and English. The series has grasped many fans in recent months. No doubt people are hooked to it because of the screenplay and direction.

The Season 3 starts with the Martha bringing Jonas to a alt world and to a time where Jonas was not even born. The Season 3 gets straight into the story left behind from the Season 2.

The story begins in 2019 and while flowing with the script the series takes us to various times zones. The depicts the actions in 1953, 1986, and 2052.

The story is portrayed by various characters acting in the role of various age groups of a single character.

Dark Season 3 depicted as the Start of the Apocalypse is the consequence and the other two seasons being the cause with befitting answers.

Dark Family tree

Everyone knows that the Dark series is difficult to remember. The family tree is the one that most people find difficult to understand. The line is so complicated that the story becomes more difficult to understand.

I have taken a pic from the Wikipedia on the Family tree so that you guys understand the characters even better.

This has to be broken down into two parts. The first pic will show us the characters from season 1 and season 2 combined. That will be comprised of The Doppler, Nielsen, Kahnwald and Tiedemann Families.

That is some family tree for a TV series and no wonder this series has been a huge success. Good luck with memorizing and understanding the family tree before watching Dark Season 3.

Next lets see the family tree for Season 3 that was launched on June 27 of 2020. This family tree consists of characters from season 3 and of Jonas’s world.

Production and release

The series was launched on 1 December 2017. Netflix approved to stream the series on it’s platform on 2016 and the production and photo shoot work started on October 2016. All the photography sessions took place in Berlin.

Dark is the first German-language Netflix TV series. The series was launched on Ultra HD 4k resolution on Netflix. The filming for the third season was completed in 8 months. The shooting started in May 2019 and ended in December 2019.

Many compared the TV series to Twin Peaks that was released in 1990. Dark got reviews that were mostly positive.

The first season got a rating of 7.5 out of 10. However, the ratings for the show increased gradually as the story unfolded. Currently, the series is rated 8.8 out of 10 on IMDB. Rotten tomatoes have rated the series 93% currently who had rated the series 89% at first.

Dark: Review

It has been 2 days since the release and I hope that most of you have seen the show already. There are Spoilers in this article and you might have to watch the series before reading further.

Dark Season 3 named as the last of the trilogy is an absolute thriller. If you have started to watch the series in the last 2 months then well done you would have been itching for the third season.

Now that the series has been released we can have our say in it. We all know that the final episodes or seasons of some of the most-watched TV series have not been a good finishing.

But Dark is spot on and we all loved season 3. There were more complications, more drama, more time travel taking the series to another level.

In the last season they finished off with the words “The question is not when, it is what world.”. Yes, we all needed a answer for that and the answer was point on in the third season.

The final episode of season 2 showed us that Martha died. In the first episode of Season 3, Martha from another world comes into the world of Jonas and saves him from the Apocalypse. The task was handed to Jonas to rectify the glitch in the matrix and stop everything he started.

Every time traveler meddles with the time sequence and that has a consequence. The parallel word is affected by this and the time zones go crazy.

Martha takes Jonas to the other world where he was not yet born. That is when the surge of Apocalypse started. He had to fix all the tampering done to time and fix the glitch in the matrix.

With multi-dimension worlds coming into play we can see some crazy and combination of ideas and controversies stuck n loophole which will get you a headache.

The work done by Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese needs a standing ovation. They have made this series a complete success unlike Game of thrones.

The 100s of characters working in a single show and making them deliver the best and make an absolute top-notch screenplay of those loads of characters is amazing. Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese have connected all the pieces in a Jigsaw puzzle making a beautiful picture.

In most of the episodes, the story would be so complicated that you would want to re-watch it again all over, and then you will end up taking notes. This has been the case not only in the third season but also in the previous two seasons. That is the kind of work put up by all the cast of Dark.

The episodes would go from an extraordinary tale to a heartbreaking love story. The season has every ingredient to be one of the best in Science fiction series.

I watched the series a year ago, so when the news broke out that Dark season three is about to release on June 27 of 2020 I watched the series again two months back. Though that didn’t bore me. The series gave me a lot of questions to solve and left me hanging in dreams of the story and what is going to happen next.

Finally I got all the answers from the Season three and expect you would also have got the answers and you would still not be solving the puzzles.

The final season had eight episodes in it and all of them were an absolute joy to watch. The season ends with a minor plot twist and not complicating the timeline taking into consideration that this is the finale.

Dark season 3 gave us more answers than raising more questions and letting its viewers solve the quest by themselves. That is the main reason that I say Dark Season 3 is a grand success.

The series may not be as good as Breaking bad and in no way, Dark will topple Breaking bad from its rightful throne. But Dark will for sure rank higher the Best TV series of all time ladder and will maintain the spot there for a long time to come.

We all know that Nolan is the best when it comes to tweaking his films so that our brain will get to see some imagination process that we would have never thought of. I can say that the series is on par with some of his movies like “Inception” and “Insomnia”.

It is as if a German Christopher Nolan has directed the film. The first season was good but the second was way too god and third blows off the roof.


The series is one of a kind it is not sure to find a series like this in the future. People may try this concept in the future but I don’t think so it will be as successful as Dark. The Series webs your brain into thoughts and a smooth running concept. I am sure I will be watching the series again in the future in a complete stretch and that might not bore me.

Ratings: 4.6 / 10
