As we did with Dark, we would have wanted to wrap up this amazing trip with a second and third season. But occasionally things don’t go as you had hoped. Such is life. We are aware that millions of fans would be disappointed by this. But we want to express our sincere gratitude for your participation in this fantastic trip. I adore you. Never overlook.

It earned a lot of positive reviews and even made the coveted Top 10 ranking. The eight-episode serial, which took place on the migrant steamship Kerberos as it sailed from London to New York 13 years before the Titanic’s tragic voyage, introduced a cast of eccentric individuals. The first season came to an abrupt end. Seasons two and three have already been discussed publicly by Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar.

People have been wondering whether any projects will even come close to how the Lost series had revolutionised the genre on the smaller screen for years.
Ever since that sad Lost finale over ten years ago. Both Westworld and Dark, in their own ways, came dangerously near. It appears that Netflix’s multi-hyphenate, multi-genre series 1899 is the new successor to the throne. The mystery-horror genre of the time is in the appropriate amounts mind-bending, captivating, compelling, and shocking. Even though it lacks the freshness of Lost and Inception. This powerful creature manages to keep you on the edge of your seat for the entire eight episodes.”
