The international cast, who hail from countries including Spain, Denmark, Germany the UK and more, reflect the spirit of the 8 x 60 series, which is fully pan-European, and dialogue will be filmed in each actor’s native language. The show follows a group of migrants from various backgrounds leaving Europe on a steamship to start new lives in the United States. When they encounter another migrant ship adrift on the open sea, an unexpected event turns their journey into a terrifying nightmare.

Mind-bending time-travel show Dark was a critical hit for Netflix, running for three seasons and culminating in June last year.
