Several theories predict dark matter to be a part of a larger dark sector of particles and forces. These dark sector particles such as dark photons, dark scalars or dark quarks may interact very weakly with standard model particles resulting in several distinct signatures in the high energy pp collision events at the LHC. This talk presents recent results from CMS on dark sector searches using data collected in LHC Run-2.
