For this year 2023, netflix does not seem to have decided to change its good old habits. After officially canceling more than 23 series last year, the streaming platform is going back to the same basics by canceling the series. 1899. Available since November 17, it featured Andreas Pietschmann and Emily Beecham in particular through a dramatic thriller against the backdrop of a trip to New York aboard a boat. These are the creators of the latter, Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar, also at the origin of the series Darkwho announced the news on the Instagram of the second.
What is lost will *not be found
“It is with a heavy heart that we must announce to you that 1899 will not be renewed. We would have loved to be able to end this incredible story with a second and third season like we did for Dark. But sometimes things don’t turn out the way we want. That’s life. We know perfectly well that it will disappoint the millions of fans around the world. But we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking part in this wonderful adventure with us. We love you. Never forget it. Bo & Jantje.”
A rather unexpected cancellation when we know that the series had risen for several weeks in the top series of netflix, which supposes several thousand hours of viewing, more than 250 million, but which could be explained by the accusations of plagiarism made by the Brazilian artist Mary Cagnin. Like the mysteries of 1899those surrounding its cancellation will remain unanswered.
