You may have heard people talking about German mystery drama Dark on Netflix recently, it's proving to be addictive viewing and is one of "the most-watched entirely non-English shows" on its global service. It's no surprise then that the streaming service today announced they would renew the show for a second season.

Netflix’s VP for international originals, Kelly Luegenbiehl said,"When we first heard about Dark we realized very early on that we hadn’t seen anything like this show before – in Germany or anywhere else in the world. Dark is a testament that great storytelling transcends geography."

The show is set in the German town of Winden and follows events after the disappearance of two young children, and the double lives and fractured relationships among four families.

Dark was created by Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese who also serve as executive producers along with Luegenbiehl, Erik Barmack, Quirin Berg, Amanda Krentzman, and Justyna Müsch.

Showrunners bo Odar and Friese will be returning for the second season and said in a statement: "We are overwhelmed by the response to Dark and are thrilled that our story has been a success with a global audience. And our fans can be sure that we have plenty of surprises in store for the second season of Dark."
