Some people have very specific Netflix habits. Sometimes it's just easier to watch something you already know you like, so there's no way you can be disappointed or end up intrigued and 12 episodes deep at 4am.

Other people opt for watching new films, documentaries and series that pop up on the streaming service, enjoying a late night binge.

They're often drawn in by comparisons to already successful shows like Stranger Things and Narcos, which can nothing but good news. One of those currently getting that treatment is Dark.

The show is set to be released in December, and has been described as a 'darker' version of Stranger Things. There are certain drawbacks, mind, with the main being that it's in German.

In reality the comparisons to Stranger Things seems more like a ploy to attract viewers, but judging by the trailer it doesn't exactly need it.

The show is set in the small German town of Winden, where two children go missing and the search for them 'opens abysses that turn the concept of time on its head'.

During the trailer it says: "The question is not where, who, or how... But when?" Paired with this is an odd poster which includes the current year, 1953 and 1986.

Time is obviously a massive part of the series, as are four families who get caught up in the search, creating fractured relationships and revealing double lives.

"The story takes on a supernatural twist that ties back to the same town in 1986," a description says.

Despite being aimed solely at an adult audience, unlike Stranger Things, creators Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese welcome the comparisons.

"It's really exciting because if all those people who watched Stranger Things will at least think about watching Dark, I think that's a great opportunity for us. So keep comparing it," they told Deadline.

It'll air on 1 December with 10 one hour long episodes being available, which means you can strap yourself in, grab a pack of Doritos, a box of beer and get yourself lost in the show.

However, you're going to have to be fully aware that you'll probably need subtitles. For those who speak German though, no bother!
