Here's the Terrifying New Netflix Show That Everyone's Comparing to 'Stranger Things'

The new German supernatural crime thriller is just as gripping as life in Hawkins.

Stranger Things' second season premiered a month ago now, so that's more than enough time to have binged the whole nine-episode run three times over – skipping episode seven, of course.

But while the show's third season may feel further away than ever right now Netflix has premiered Dark, an all-new supernatural thriller series that may just make the wait for more from the Duffer brothers just a little easier.

Described as a "family saga with a supernatural twist", German thriller Dark follows four families in a German town as the disappearance of two young children exposes fractured relationships and double lives, and a supernatural mystery that ties back to the same town in 1986.

"Dark is also a more mature version of Stranger Things, featuring a great deal of swearing, nudity, and gore," writes IGN. "Thankfully, none of the 'R-Rated' material feels excessive. Dark lives up to its name in terms of its narrative [...] Dark is a delightful bit of supernatural fun that's worth the 10 hours it will take to finish when it releases on December 1st."

Dark is streaming on Netflix now.
