Great news for fans of Netflix's genre-bending Dark.

Word came Wednesday via The Hollywood Reporter that streaming giant Netflix is ordering a second season of its first German original series.

Set in a small German town, the story revolves around a case of missing children that has characters traversing three distinctly different time periods, each 33 years apart. Season 1 ended on a massive clinghanger setting up a completely new direction for the series.

“We are overwhelmed by the response to Dark and are thrilled that our story has been a success with a global audience," said showrunners Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese. "Viewers have been captivated by the secrets of our protagonists and have taken delight in unraveling the various puzzles that the story presents. To know that we will now embark on our next journey is, for us showrunners, a dream come true. And our fans can be sure that we have plenty of surprises in store for the second season of Dark.”
