Netflix’s much-anticipated German TV show Dark won’t hit the streaming service until later this year, but until that happens, it is giving us yet another show to look forward to as it just greenlit its second original German series, Dogs of Berlin, set to debut in 2018.
In the company’s announcement, Netflix vp of international originals, Erik Barmack, called Dogs of Berlin a “gripping, modern German story that dives into the Berlin underground,” as it follows two cops out to investigate underground drug trades, mafia and neo-nazi terror cells. Barmack called show creator Christian Alvart an “excellent story teller and has proven his talent for the staging of spectacular thrillers both here and in Hollywood. We’re excited to secure him for our second Netflix original that will be written, shot and produced entirely in Germany.”
With Netflix and Amazon pushing to expand their German portfolio, it is an exciting time for those of us who don’t want to rely on pricy satellite cable packages to fill our German TV appetite.
