All you need to know about Netflix’s upcoming series ‘1899’


Netflix’s upcoming series ‘1899’ is the mastermind of creators of the German hit series ‘Dark’.

The series is set to premiere on Netflix in November. Here is everything we know so far about the upcoming series.


Netflix’s 1899 is a period drama. Showrunners Friese and Odar gave a few hints at the overall direction of the series, albeit this time around the series won’t have any time travel:

“We don’t repeat ourselves, we really hate that, but it’s going to be a fun puzzle for the audience. We are going back to our mystery roots.  All the passengers on the ship are traveling with secrets that they don’t want to get out. It’s built like a puzzle again. Knowing that we did Dark, everyone can be assured that this is going to be something weird and wild and crazy.”

The synopsis of the new series is described as follows in the official press release:

“The original series revolves around a migrant steamship heading west to leave the old continent from London to New York. The passengers, a mixed bag of European origins, are united by their hopes and dreams for the new century and their future abroad. When they discover another migrant ship adrift on open sea, their journey takes an unexpected turn. What they find on board will turn their passage to the promised land into a horrifying nightmare.”

An updated synopsis provides even more hints at what we can expect:

“The eight episodes tell of the mysterious events during the voyage of an emigrant ship from Europe to New York. The passengers from the most diverse backgrounds look forward to the dawning century with hope.

They all dream of a better future abroad. When they discover a second ship on the open sea that has been missing for months, their journey takes an unexpected turn. What they find on board turns their crossing to the promised land into a nightmarish mystery. A web of secrets seems to tie the past of each passenger together.”
