Dark Season 3 (Netflix)

Season 1 became an overnight rage in 2017. Season 2 came back bigger than before last June, gaining a ton of traction online due to its ever-more-intricate storyline and steady stream of reveals that begged for further explanation. Season 3 is the “final cycle of this great journey”, since the time cycles on the show come in threes.
