Netflix series Dark is going to be coming back for one last cycle as the programme wraps up for good. The trilogy from co-creators Baran Bo Odar and Jantje Friese has been lauded as one of the most ambitious television shows ever made thanks to its intricately plotted time travelling story. Dark takes place in the small German town of Winden and starts with a missing child but unravels into a much bigger story spanning across multiple time periods.

The cast is just as large as the story itself with different actors playing versions of the same character at various ages.

In an effort to avoid confusion, similar-looking actors or distinguishing features (such as moles or hair colour) have been used to create unity between these different versions across the years.

Season three is the final outing of the show and will be released on Netflix on June 27.

Ahead of the new series, looks at the cast of Dark and what other films and TV shows they’ve starred in before.
