Season 3 trailer!

Gods, this looks so dope...also, more new characters? My head gone explode.




And its so close to release! I'm trying to figure out who the new figure(s) could be. I know at one point Claudia says to Jonas (I believe) that she has seen a world where he doesn't exist and its not a good thing. Maybe the new person is from an/the alternate that fills a space Jonas would've occupied? We watched an 11 minute breakdown of this preview and in still shots Marta was seen in a Jonas-type yellow raincoat...
SO freaking excited!! Will likely watch all of S2 again leading up. If not 1 and 2.

The Marta who shows up with the travel ball device at the end of S2 is the place where I expect the new faces to pop up from, but when or where that is...who knows.

OMG!! That looks incredible! I'm starting to fear it can't possibly live up to what my expectations are becoming but they've done a remarkable job of it so far. Yet I have no clue how they will do this, what direction this will all go. If this season even comes close to living up, I'll give a standing ovation right in my family room. I keep forgetting to check; this show MUST be raking in TONS of awards in Germany, at least, right?! Its certainly become probably my favorite show of the last 10 years. I can't think of another I've enjoyed this intensely with few to no complaints along the way. Maybe Stranger Things is close, with the 80s nostalgia being so strong for me.

Do you guys know if it'll be released as an episode a week or a full season dump?

While I like STRANGER THINGS a lot, and it's a fun sendup to 80's movies and tropes with great acting....DARK is on a completely different and is in every way superior level to it. It's easily in my top 3 fave shows of the last 10 years as well.

This is a good question and as far as I know the ONLY shows that Netflix releases on the weekly basis as opposed to all at once to binge, are ones that are licensed to run on actual TV for a network...so like the SNOWPIERCER TV show runs on FX, so it comes out week by week on Netflix to accommodate that airing schedule....but all the original stuff that's not running elsewhere drops all at once, so I expect DARK will drop and be bingeable.

A few observations about my rewatch:

I could find ONE joke during the two seasons, when WŲller begins to say how he lost his eye, whose story is interrupted by almost running over Claudia.

I think the biggest plot hole is that Hannah never recognizes young Mikel. But as Aptorian said, time travel-travel plots always have problems.

My understanding is that Odar knew the entire story arc from the beginning, so my hopes are high the last season will be satisfying.

Just finished the last episode. Holy crap. That was an amazing ride.

Spoiler


I assume it is just a matter of time before some fan will splice the seasons in such a way that you get a chronological view of each key character. Shou,d be interesting to see how it holds up. This was an amazing feat of escaping the labyrinth. Bloody hell. Epic.

Looks like I was correct in my guess about someone back in early Ep 2. Just finished Ep 4. Will pick it back up tomorrow morning and watch and another episode.

An amazing ride is a good way to put it. We finished the final 2 eps last night. Not exactly how we thought things might go but it makes sense.

There is still a good bit to digest and a rewatch is paramount. So far though, I am quite at peace with the show's wrap up. Which is saying something, considering the expectations. It wasn't explosive, but it makes sense and that is much more important, I think.
