Dark Season 2

Dark, the eerie, stylish time-travel mystery show from Germany, just got the go-ahead for season 2 on Netflix.

The company has unveiled a new batch of binge-watching statistics from its users over the past year, and amid some interesting observations about the pacing of how viewers watch certain shows, they also take a minute to (anonymously) call out a couple of viewers, including one who watched Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of The Black Pearl for 365 days in a row.
