Released last November, “1899”, a new high-concept drama from the creators of “Dark”, was canceled by Netflix after just one season.
After the success of Dark, creators Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar have returned with a new serial epic titled 1899. Available on Netflix since November 17, this ambitious series remains high in the platform’s top views. Enough to ensure a potential season 2 for 1899.
There will be no season 2 for the sci-fi thriller 1899. Netflix has canceled the series from Dark creators Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar, who announced the news on the latter’s Instagram account:
“It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce that 1899 will not be renewed. We would have liked to end this incredible journey with a 2nd and 3rd season like we did with Dark. don’t go as planned. That’s life.

1899 follows the mysterious events that occur aboard a steamer heading west to leave the old continent. The passengers, from diverse European backgrounds, are united by their hopes and dreams for the coming century and their future in the new world.
