Netflix cancels ‘1899’ after One Season

Baran Bo Obar , the co-creator of the series 1899 has confirmed via his Instagram account that the show has been cancelled after a solitary season. The message to fans was also signed by Jantje Freise who is the other creator of the series.

The statement reads “With a heavy heart we have to tell you that ‘1899’ will not be renewed,” Odar wrote. “We would have loved to finish this incredible journey with a second and third season as we did with ‘Dark.’ But sometimes things don’t turn out the way you planned. That’s life.”

“We know this will disappoint millions of fans out there. But we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts that you were a part of this wonderful adventure,” the statement continues. “We love you. Never forget.”

1899 is an epic science-fiction thriller set in the same year as its title. It follows the crew and passengers aboard a steamship named Kerberos and the mysterious events that unravel on deck as they embark on a voyage from Europe to New York. The promise of a bright and promising future at a new destination suddenly turns bleak when they encounter another emigrating ship adrift at sea. Their unexpected nightmarish discovery sets off a chain of mysterious events that leaves Kerberos’ passengers frightened to their bones, giving rise to more questions than they can answer.

During its debut week, 1899 ranked at number two on Netflix’s Top 10 TV English titles just three days after its release with 79.27 million hours viewed. The following week, the series remained at the same position and garnered 87.89 million viewing hours. In its third week, the series generated 44.62 million viewing hours, while also holding its position at number two.
