If seeing an entire reality flipped in the last season of “Dark” seemed jarring, know that it felt just as dissonant to the people helping to bring it to life.
When it came time for Martha (Lisa Vicari) to take on some of the some iconography that in previous seasons was associated with Jonas (Louis Hofmann), that exchange between the two main characters made for a moment that forced them and series co-creators Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar to recalibrate a little.
“Just even her wearing the yellow raincoat in the costume test was really weird. Also for [Lisa] because it was so iconic for Jonas as his character. For Louis, being on set and she’s entering the room with his jacket, the first reaction was like, ‘Give me back my jacket! This is mine!'” Odar said in a recent interview with IndieWire.
