Plot Synopsis

DARK NET is a documentary series that explores the netherworld of the dark web where virtual and physical lives collide, revealing a more ominous and disturbing perspective of a digitally connected world where every action is collected and stored. Each half-hour episode sheds light on themes such as bio-hacking, cyber-kidnapping, digital warfare, online cults, pornography addiction, the webcam sex trade and more. Originally used as a hidden space for the intelligence community to meet online outside of the general public's eye, the dark web is now being exploited by a dangerous underworld of cyber predators and criminals. Imprisoned hackers and trolls secretly surf alongside bondage fetishists, virtual lovebirds and life-tracking disciples. With our growing dependence on technology and connectivity, the Internet at large has become indispensable for billions of users, enabling people to connect globally in ways they never could before. But DARK NET unveils the dangers of its unchecked shadow, raising cautionary, thought-provoking conversations about technology, privacy and how new, ever-expanding platforms are changing the way we live for the better and for worse. DARK NET is developed and produced by Vocativ, a technology and media company that applies exclusive proprietary technology to search and monitor the deep web, the 80 percent of the internet that lies beyond the reach of regular search engines.

On Thursday, April 6, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, Showtime premiered the second season of DARK NET. Over the course of eight half-hour episodes, Season 2 of DARK NET documents the vast extent to which collected information and data is building an interconnected global net that has perhaps rendered us the last generation of privacy, while chronicling the ways in which the Internet has pervaded our communities, relationships and minds, and exposes the dangers of an unregulated, unsupervised digital frontier. Even our most intimate interactions and transactions are networked via data we willingly provide, transforming each of us into data points for companies, governments, workplaces, merchandisers and others. In the season opener, "My Mind," rapid technological advancements are allowing machines to divine the inner workings of our minds like never before. Now that we have given the machines the keys to our mind, what happens next? In this episode, meet Harmony, the world's first artificially intelligent sex robot; a woman who spends her days and nights uploading her mind to the algorithm; and a family whose lives were torn apart by over a decade of war - only to be saved by virtual reality.
