Dark season 3 is right around the corner. All of us are likely going insane sitting at home in the midst of a lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic. We recently got a trailer which shows off even more of what’s in store after Dark season 2 wrapped up. It also confirms that Dark season 3 will premiere on Netflix on June 27, 2020.
The Dark Season 3 Release Date Has Some Story Significance
This is notable for a number of reasons. For one, Netflix doesn’t usually release new shows on Saturdays. You can head to the Dark IMDb page and see for yourself. Dark season 1 hit Netflix on December 1, 2017, and the Dark season 2 release date was June 21, 2019. Both of these were Fridays.
Usually, there’s no particular reason to obsess over a show’s release date to this extent. However, in the case of Dark season 3, Netflix isn’t breaking their pattern just for the heck of it. Anyone who has seen Dark season 2 knows the significance of June 27, 2020, in the show’s story.
Dark Season 3 Might Be Too Depressing For Some
That is, of course, the date that the apocalypse is set to go down within the show’s story. Considering the way the world is right now, it wouldn’t be a surprise in the slightest if the actual apocalypse did spring up that day, though. Seeing the apocalypse play out in Dark season 3 while it happens in the real world would be a nice way to go.
Dark Season 3 Will Wrap Up The Show’s Story
All jokes aside, if you do want something light and fluffy to get your mind off things, Dark season 3 isn’t going to do it for you. However, it’s undeniably an incredible, mind-bending journey. So, if its depressing tone isn’t a hurdle for you, you still have a few weeks to catch up.
Dark season 3 will also wrap up the show’s story. Now is as good a time as any to get into it. Hop onto Netflix and hit play on Dark season 1 episode 1. Familiarise yourself with the cast, since series regulars like Karoline Eichhorn, Louis Hofmann and many others are back for this season. You only have 18 episodes to get through.
