Attention Dark fans! Netflix has dropped a new trailer of upcoming Danish series, Equinox that gives all those sci-fi, alternate reality— in short—Dark vibes!
Equinox is Netflix’s upcoming foreign offering, which is based on the hit Danish podcast “Equinox 1985.” The first teaser was released on November 23, revealing the premise of a new mysterious supernatural thriller with some mysterious disappearances and alternate realities.

It’s pretty fascinating to see Netflix bringing new thriller foreign content to the table every year, but (unfortunately) much of it feels unoriginal and repetitive.

And we are afraid that Equinox is going to be the next Netflix original series with a not so original plotline…
Here’s what you need to know about this series and Equinox poster:
Netflix’s Equinox features a story of a girl named Astrid, who was traumatized by the mysterious abduction or disappearance of her sister in addition to her entire class in 1999, when her age was only 9 years. Twenty years later, Astrid is living a quiet life and works as a late-night radio jockey.
Her peaceful life takes a drastic turn, when she receives a phone call from a stranger who tells her the existence of another dimension. “There is another reality. Another reality behind the one we’re living in. I was there, Astrid!” he says.
Most interestingly, the stranger reveals that he knows the reason why her sister went missing before he hangs up. The caller was one of the 1999 incident's three survivors.

Later, she discovers that the survivors from that incident had died mysteriously, and so Astrid embarks on a journey to discover the unsettling truth behind the disappearances.
Now the fans of the German series Dark would be like “is it a spin off or another season of Dark?” Well, the similarities in the plot between the two series are extremely uncanny! The German series Dark was wrapped up in summer this year, with one of the most mind-bending endings we’ve ever witnessed! If you have seen the German series, you would know that Dark also started with the disappearance of a kid, whose investigation led to a discovery of time travelling and later (spoiler alert!) alternate realities.
And from the look of the trailer, many Dark fans have highlighted the similarities in the two plots, with one fan even commenting if Equinox is a Dark spinoff.
Honestly, there’s one particular scene from the trailer of Equinox (refer to the picture below), where we can see characters are moving in line in the woods, which in fact, looks similar to the cave in Dark.
Despite the unoriginal plot, Equinox can be a treat for those who’re sad by the fact that Dark has ended and are seeking for something to fill that void.
The story is based on a hit Danish podcast of the same name

Netflix's Equinox Trailer and release date:
There’s one dialogue in the trailer, “I saw them in the DARK!”, which reinforces our belief that it may have something to do with Dark.
