‘Dark’ Returns on Netflix – Things You Need to Remember Before Season 2 Premiere on June 21

265

The first season of Netflix’s Dark premiered in the streaming service back in December 2017, and it feels like an eternity since we last saw our favorite residents of Winden, Germany.

With season 2 premiering this Friday, now is as good of a as any to get a quick refresher on the first season.

What happened in Season 1

All the events in Dark started to unfold when during the night of November 4, 2019, Mikkel went to the woods with his siblings Magnus and Martha and their friends Jonas, Franziska and Bartosz. Everyone got freaked out and left the place when they started hearing a strange sound.

And it was at that Mikkel disappeared. Later, we found out that he went 33 years into the past and was adopted by Ines Kahnwald and raised as Michael Kahnwald who is Jonas’s father.

A month before Mikkel disappeared, a boy named Erik also went missing and we later found out that Helge was doing experiments with him in the bunker in 1986, we also got to see his dead body alongside another boy Yasin’s body in 1953 at the soon to be nuclear plant premises.

Before them, in 1986, Ulrich’s brother Mads also disappeared and his body was found in 2019, after the disappearance of Mikkael. He died because of the same experiment as Erik and his death was covered by Peter and his own father Tronte.

Release date has its meaning

June 21, 2019, holds a great significance in the show as Michael (Mikkel) hanged himself at this date and left a suicide note for his mom with instructions to not open it till November 4 at 10:03 p.m., that is exactly when Mikkel disappeared.

The 33-year cycle

We also found out midway during the show that the universe returns to the exact same position every 33 years where everything is exactly the same as it was at one particular period of in the cosmos. We have seen the show’s narrative taking place at four of those 33-year timelines by now, in 1953, 1986, 2019 and 2052 in the final moments of Season 1.

Who is Noah

Noah is a pastor who we have seen in 3 of the periods by now, he is always at the same age. We also saw him for the first midway during the first season where he met Elisabeth, Franziska’s sister and shortly after that, Helge kidnapped her friend Yasin and took her to Noah.

Noah’s vision seems to be controlling the events of the world by creating a machine. When we saw him last, he recruited Bartosz by manipulating him.

What to expect from Season 2?

As for the second season, it’s been confirmed that it’ll open with scenes set in 1921 along with a new modern-day period of 2020. An image of the season’s script also hints at different inserts from June 21, 1954, 1987 and in 2020.

Big questions we hope to be resolved include why exactly Michael killed himself – and why he’s always drenched in icky black goo when Jonas sees him. Plus, what exactly is Father Noah up to (aside from all that kidnap and murderising, of course)?
