What makes a great drama series is an enticing mystery element that keeps us hanging on episode after episode and season after season. Luckily, there’s no shortage in binge-able Netflix original series chock full of mysteries. Although most binge-watchers have surely watched all three seasons of the German sci-fi thriller Dark, those wanting some mystery should dive right in.

Taking place in the fictional German town of Winden, Dark centers on the mysterious circumstances of children suddenly going missing. Four families that have been connected by these disappearances unravel the truth, which leads them to explorations of time and space as dark pasts lead to revelations within the mystery that spans four generations.

Dark first premiered on Netflix in December 2017 and became something of a sleeper hit on the streaming service. As one of the top international titles, Dark spawned two more seasons and received overwhelmingly positive reviews throughout its short but exciting run. With a binge-watch consisting of just 26 episodes, Dark’s mystery is one worth solving.
