As announced on Showtime’s Twitter account just minutes ago, the network has renewed their provocative documentary series Dark Net for a second season. The season, presumably airing sometime in 2017, will continue the close and occasionally personal look at the dark side of technology and the ways in which it is changing modern society in both positive and negative ways.
I reviewed Dark Net for TVOvermind throughout the first season (you can catch my review of the show’s recent season finale here), and I was consistently impressed with the way that the series tackled some pretty big issues that most of the audience would probably never learn of without the show. The series is very comparable to a documentary-style version of the popular series Black Mirror, except for the fact that, of course, Dark Net isn’t fictional at all. The only flaws with the show’s first season was that there were times in which some of the stories presented didn’t fit as well into the overall episode subject as they should, and a couple of the issues discussed were only addressed in a very superficial manner that could have benefited from a little more thorough exploration. No matter what, I’m extremely excited about the opportunity to get more Dark Net in the future, and I can’t wait until the series returns next year.
Take a look below at the tweet announcing Dark Net‘s renewal, and be sure to catch up on the show on-demand while you can!
