The design luminosity of the machine is $8\times 10^{35}$ cm$^{-2}$s$^{-1}$ and the Belle II experiment aims to record 50 ab$^{-1}$ of data, a factor of 50 more than its predecessor. From February to July 2018, the machine has completed a commissioning run, achieved a peak luminosity of $5.5\times 10^{33}$ cm$^{-2}$s$^{-1}$, and Belle II has recorded a data sample of about 0.5 fb$^{-1}$. Main operation of SuperKEKB has started in March 2019. Already this early data set with specifically designed triggers offers the possibility to search for a large variety of dark sector particles in the GeV mass range complementary to the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and dedicated low energy experiments; these searches will benefit from more data in the process of being accumulated. This talk will review the state of the dark sector searches at Belle II with a focus on the discovery potential of the early data, and show the first results.
