'Dark' Season 2 Trailer Hints Time Watching Jonas, Showrunner Reveals Season 3 Renewal
Netflix has dropped a new trailer for Dark Season 2, teasing a more mysterious scenario for Jonas (Louis Hofmann). After being pushed further away to the future, Michael (Sebastian Rudolph) and Hannah's (Maja Schöne) son is about to witness a more dystopian wasteland due to the apocalypse that is about to come.
Dark Season 2 is expected to dig deeper into the show's mystery. Hence, there may be new complications to come that Jonas has to face.
Although the trailer only runs for 43 seconds, it successfully makes everyone feel how intense Dark Season 2 will be. "If you could reach into the clockwork mechanisms of the world, could change the switches, to which day would you travel?" a voice can be heard saying to Jonas, while different scenes of events are playing.
"If it's what I think it is, it will change our understanding of the world forever," a woman said. A guy also warned Jonas that time is always with him, and it sees and hears everything he does and says. Another one added time travel exists.
From the looks of it, Dark Season 2 will be all about Jonas' time travel and explorations. It may also delve into the fact that anyone who will be in the "time-space continuum" will have no control of their situation.
