Netflix followed with a teaser trailers in German and English on May 26, 2020, also announcing the official release date of June 27, 2020. A full trailer was released on Friday, June 12, 2020. The synopsis reads
- "In the third and final season, Dark reaches its mind-bending conclusion, moving beyond the concept of space and time. Upon arrival in a new world, Jonas tries to make sense of what this rendition of Winden means for his own fate, while the ones left behind in the other world are left on a quest to break the loop that now not only bends time but also space. Two worlds. Light and dark. And in the center a tragic love story of epic proportions."
