7 Shows Like Netflix’s Dark That You Should Watch if You Like Dark

Published

on

The final season of the German series Dark has come and gone and left in its wake a deep void. The brilliant sci-fi series, which ran for three seasons on Netflix, told the story of four interconnected families caught up in a mind-boggling time-travel mystery involving the apocalypse. The final eight episodes further complicated the already complex drama by introducing two more worlds, revealing different versions of the show’s characters after an alternate version of Martha (Lisa Vicari) saved Jonas (Louis Hofmann) from the apocalypse at the end of Season 2. 

If you’ve finished the show and are looking for more great sci-fi series with engrossing questions about human existence and good and evil, especially ones featuring time travel and/or the multiverse, this is the perfect list for you. Everything below features intricate plotting and/or mind-bending storytelling that will make your head hurt in a good way. If you like Dark, these are the shows you should watch next.

Looking for more recommendations of what to watch next? We have a ton of them! And if you’re looking for more hand-picked recommendations based on shows you love, we have those too.

Counterpart


Watch it on: Amazon Prime

J.K. Simmons, Counterpart

Dark is upping its game by introducing a second reality, and if you’re interested in exploring another series about multiple worlds, check out the unfortunately short-lived Starz drama Counterpart, which ran for two seasons and pulls from the sci-fi and espionage genres to tell a story about two worlds that mirror one another and are connected by a secret crossing in Berlin. The series features an existential multiverse narrative that explores, via two versions of the same characters, the complexity of human nature and how our lives can be changed by a series of choices. The underrated show features fascinating dual performances by J.K. Simmons, Olivia Williams, and Harry Lloyd, among others.

Fringe


Watch it on: IMDb TV

<em>Fringe</em>Fringe

Like Dark, Fringe features a parallel world, alternate versions of various characters, and deals with the complicated mechanics of time travel. Created by J.J. Abrams, Alex Kurtzman, and Roberto Orci, the five-season Fox drama follows FBI agent Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv), kooky scientist Walter Bishop (John Noble), and his son Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson) as they use obscure, “fringe” science to investigate unexplained phenomena around the country. Although the series starts out with an episodic structure, it eventually gives way to more serialized narratives as the show digs deeper into the existence of the parallel universe.

Stranger Things


Watch it on: Netflix

Gaten Matarazzo, Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin and Noah Schnapp, <em>Stranger Things</em>Gaten Matarazzo, Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin and Noah Schnapp, Stranger Things

When Dark premiered in late 2017, there were a number of comparisons to Netflix’s popular ’80s-set supernatural series Stranger Things because the show was also kick-started by a child going missing. Dark ended up being a lot deeper and more complex than Stranger Things, which follows a group of pre-teens and teenagers as they defeat monsters from an alternate dimension known as the Upside Down in a small Indiana town, but things are about to get more complex as the fourth season appears poised to introduce the possibility of time travel. 

12 Monkeys


Watch it on: Hulu

Aaron Stanford and Amanda Schull, <em>12 Monkeys</em>Aaron Stanford and Amanda Schull, 12 Monkeys

Fiction is full of stories of time travelers like Jonas who are trying to stop various bad things from occurring, and Syfy’s 12 Monkeys is one of the best. A loose adaptation of the film of the same name, the series follows Aaron Stanford’s Cole, who travels back in time from 2043 to 2015 and teams up with Amanda Schull’s Dr. Cassandra Reilly, a virologist, to stop the release of a plague-causing virus that will lead to the destruction of humanity. Like Dark, it’s another intricately plotted series featuring another forbidden romance that will leave you scratching your head because of its looping, non-linear narrative.

The Expanse


Watch it on: Amazon Prime

<em>The Expanse</em>The Expanse

If you love the complex and intricate world-building of Dark but haven’t yet checked out The Expanse, you are in for a treat. The sci-fi space drama, based on the acclaimed book series by James S.A. Corey, is set in a future in which humanity has colonized the solar system and the already tense relationships between the three leading factions – the ruling class Earth, the working class Belt, and the militarized Mars – are pushed to their breaking points after a powerful and deadly alien particle is discovered. Like Dark, The Expanse is an intricate, detail-oriented story about a group of people whose views on the universe are completely upended and the small legion of hopeful heroes who don’t give up fighting for a better world.  –Sadie Gennis

Doctor Who


Watch it on: HBO Max (2005 revival); BritBox (classic series)

Jodie Whittaker, <em>Doctor Who</em>Jodie Whittaker, Doctor Who

There is likely no better show about time travel than Doctor Who, the long-running British sci-fi show about the Doctor, an alien with the ability to regenerate who travels the universe in the TARDIS, aka a time machine and spaceship, with a human companion who helps the Doctor save humanity and more from all sorts of things on a regular basis. It’s a great adventure show, largely episodic, and something you can watch with the whole family, though there are definitely some creepy episodes and even creepier monsters along the way. If you’ve ever heard someone talk about time being a “big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff,” that explanation comes from the acclaimed episode “Blink,” which features a non-linear narrative and is probably the closest you’ll get to Dark‘s most confusing moments while watching the show.

Continuum


Watch it on: iTunes (for purchase)

Rachel Nichols and Erik Knudsen, <em>Continuum</em>Rachel Nichols and Erik Knudsen, Continuum

If you’re looking for another sci-fi show dealing with the complexities of good and evil and their shades of gray, the Canadian sci-fi series Continuum is an excellent option. Rachel Nichols stars as Kiera Cameron, a law enforcement officer in a future corporatocracy who travels through time from 2077 to 2012 when a group of terrorists known as Liber8 flee to the past to escape execution and she’s involuntarily taken with them. In the past, she teams up with Alec Sadler (Erik Knudsen), a young genius and the only person who knows she’s from the future — and who grows up to be the founder of a major corporation — in order to stop Liber8 from changing the future and get back home to her husband and young son. Across four seasons, the series explores how changing the past affects the future, including creating different timelines and the possibility of “orphaning” lost time-travelers.

Dimanche soir, c’était soir de gala! Quelques étoiles du gratin artistique québécois ont troqué leur linge mou de confinement pour leurs plus beaux habits en vue du 35e Gala des prix Gémeaux. Bien que l’équipe de la célébration n’ait pas déroulé un grand tapis rouge cette année, le public a tout de même pu jeter un œil aux superbes looks de ses comédiens et comédiennes chouchous. Un photographe engagé par la production était d’ailleurs aux premières loges, question de capturer quelques souvenirs des festivités.

L’animatrice de la soirée, Véronique Cloutier, était particulièrement à tomber dans deux looks totalement élégants. D’autres personnalités ayant monté sur les planches du Studio 42 ont également attiré notre attention par leur tenue des plus parfaites pour l’occasion.

Découvrez nos coups de cœur mode des Prix Gémeaux 2020!

Lucifer Season 5 Part 2: Netflix Release Date & Everything We Know So Far

Lucifer Season 5 Part 2 Updates, If you haven’t gushed over Tom Ellis’s aka Lucifer’s jacked body and looks at least once, then you are no fan of him. This was originally a Fox production which debuted on Netflix is based on the DC comic character under the same name where the amorous Devil abandoning hell was followed up by some thriller content and untwisting of knots as the mystery pursues.

It continued through 4 seasons before hitting a bump in the road when Netflix dropped on us that it’s S5 will be split into 2 parts, keeping us in suspense after it ended snappishly with a major turn in the first installment of the season. So this a news to catch up to for the eager fans that the second part is on the way.

Release Date Of Lucifer Season 5 Part 2

Netflix has not teased us with any official premiere date yet but might be headed for an early to mid-2021 release.

Reports flashed in the next half of Sept 2019 that the production had advanced covering the finishing of S5  well into the starting of S6 and went on a pause midway in this Covid-19 outbreak. So this surely digs out the fact that this season is not the end of this series.

A musical episode revealed at the DC Fandom this Sept is believed to be the opener to the second half of this season, as did the first half with a noir episode.

Cast Of The Show

Undoubtedly Tom Ellis will be back for the role ‘Lucifer Morningstar’, Lauren German for that of ‘Chloe Decker’. Actors Inbar Lavi will be back for ‘Eve’ while Lesley Ann-Brandt takes on her  ‘Maze’.However new faces like Debbie Gibson will star as ‘Shelly Britner’, and  Matthew Bohrer as a new character,’Donovan Glover’.

Plot Of Lucifer Season 5 Part 2

The midseason finale left us with Lucifer’s fighting Maze and Amenadiel’s grapple with Michael before ‘God’ showing up to break it off.

We are yet to see Maze’s demon face, Michael’s plan for Lucifer, and other twists awaiting us as the storyline takes up from the built-up tension in the earlier part of S5. Also, we got the hilarious gag reels of S4  while we wait for the next one.

We will be back with more updates for you as bigger information gets released about the rest of the part.

This device might be able to actually detect extraterrestrial life! Check it out.

Specialists have built up a completely computerized CPU electrophoresis analyzer that, when consolidated into a planetary meanderer, could sometime recognize natural biosignatures in extraterrestrial soil.

Despite the fact that Earth is exceptionally arranged in the nearby planetary group to help animals that call it home, various types of life could have once existed, or may at present exist, on different planets.

Yet, discovering hints of past or current life structures on different universes is testing.

One basic bit of proof for life past Earth is the presence of certain natural atoms.

Past missions to Mars have depended on gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (GC-MS) to isolate and distinguish mixes.

In any case, the method has impediments for the examination of certain atoms, for example, natural acids, particularly when water, minerals or salts are likewise in the example, said the NASA-subsidized investigation showed up in the American Chemical Society’s diary Analytical Chemistry.

Central processor electrophoresis (ME)- based divisions, trailed by laser-initiated fluorescence (LIF) identification, would be ideal, said specialists, yet current instruments are just halfway robotized, which wouldn’t work for interplanetary missions.

Subside Willis and partners needed to build up a versatile, battery-fueled instrument that could acknowledge an example and perform marking, partition and discovery of natural particles, all in a completely mechanized style.

The specialists made a gadget that included two central processor – one for preparing and naming a fluid example, and the other (the ME chip) for isolating mixes – and a LIF identification framework.

This is the manner by which it worked.

In the wake of upgrading the gadget, the analysts put it under serious scrutiny in a reproduced Mars mission in a Chilean desert. The group coupled the analyzer to a versatile subcritical water extractor on a distantly sent wanderer framework.

The wanderer penetrated into the dirt to gather tests, which were conveyed to the extractor.

At that point, water was added to the dirt examples, and they were warmed to remove mixes for examination.

The gadget recognized parts per billion degrees of amino acids in soil from three of four boring areas.

“Significantly, the affectability was three significant degrees higher than that detailed for GC-MS-based strategies,” the creators composed.

Albeit more work is expected to prepare the instrument for spaceflight and extraterrestrial conditions, the examination “establishes the framework for creating ME-LIF instruments for missions looking for indications of life past Earth”.
