Everything You Need To Know about ‘1899’ on Netflix From The Creators of ‘Dark’

Netflix show 1899 – It seems just like yesterday that Dark, one of the most famous and equally agonizing shows on Netflix, confused the hell out of us and had us pulling our hair out in frustration. Now, its makers have announced yet another show called 1899. We have a feeling that it’s going to be equally terrifying and terrific, all in one.

Will the show be similar to Dark?

Do not be fooled, for the concept of this show is supposedly the polar opposite of Dark. “The fact that this concept is so radically different from Dark is a true testament to their creativity and versatility as creators and we are excited to continue this journey with them,” said Kelly Luegenbeihl, Vice President, Originals, Europe and Africa at Netflix. The series revolves around a steamship of European migrants sailing from London to New York, whose trip turns into a terrifying nightmare after finding another migrant ship afloat on the open sea. What they find on board, turns their passage to the dream of a new world into one leading to horrifying events that change their lives forever.

“At its heart (of this show) is the question of what unites us and what divides us. And how fear can be a trigger for the latter,” said Jantje Friese and Baran Bo Odar, the German pair behind the masterpiece Dark, in a statement. 1899 will be the first new series of the pair, who have been working together since 2010, under their overall multi-year deal with Netflix where the German producers will exclusively create and produce original content- news to celebrate for their fans. Unlike Dark, which was in German, this show will have its primary language as English. 1899 will have eight one-hour episodes in its first season. The pilot episode is called The Ship, as revealed by Odar on his Instagram account.

When will it come out?

If all goes according to plan and production begins in February 2021, we can expect the first season to release in the first half of 2022 on Netflix. However, a German magazine has predicted that 1899 will come out in 2021. Fingers crossed!
