Titled “Hero’s Journey,” the teaser below gives us a look at some of the craziness that Jonas (Louis Hofmann) finds himself in following the jaw-dropping final moments of season 1. He’s in the future now, and the German town of Winden is looking… a little rundown. “The way to stop this all from happening,” Jonas says, “is for me to stop the very beginning.”
The first chapter offered up a trippy and oh-so moody sci-fi tale that relished keeping the audience in the… dark (sorry), drip feeding little reveals as we attempted to wrap our head around all the time jumping. Looks like we’re in for more mind-boggling turns and, as the teaser suggests, answers? “Maybe your role in this is much greater than you think,” Noah (Mark Waschke), that mysterious dark priest, appears to tell Jonas.
We’re probably going to have to see the first season again – or at least look through a number of YouTube recaps – to get our brains ready for what’s next. Dark season 2 will be hitting Netflix on June 21, the date that Jonas’ father, Michael, committed suicide.
Official synopsis for Dark season 2:

Meanwhile, his friends Martha, Magnus, and Franziska are trying to uncover how Bartosz’ is involved in the mysterious incidents occurring in their small hometown of Winden. More and more people are drawn into the events orchestrated by an obscure figure who seemingly controls everything that is connected throughout different time zones.
