The existence of dark matter is a prominent puzzle in model physics, and it strongly motivates new particle physics beyond the standard model.I will review theoretical candidates for dark matter as proposed in the literature, and their status in light of recent experimental searches. I will also discuss new possibilities of dark matter theories and related research avenues.
