What We Know So Far About Netflix’s “1899,” Including the Plot, the Cast, and the Trailer


The creators of the psychologically taxing and equally captivating German science fiction thriller television series Dark, Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese, have teamed together once more for the epic period, gritty mystery drama 1899.

Dark became immensely popular on Netflix by the conclusion of its third season. Dark’s creators Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar knew they had a tough act to follow after creating Netflix’s first German original series.

The co-creator and Netflix announced a new project for Netflix under their overall arrangement at the streaming service in November 2018, during the European migrant crisis, while working on Dark, and later confirmed during a Netflix press conference. Instagram user Baran bo Odar disclosed that Friese had finished penning the episode’s pilot screenplay.

What is the Plot of 1899?

In the story of 1899, people from Europe are going to New York in hopes of a better life on a new continent. Their trip is interrupted when the ship’s captain gets a strange message from the Prometheus, a ship that everyone thinks has been left behind.

It hasn’t been found in four months. Even though he told the passengers that they would get to New York in seven days, the captain decides to take a different route.

The passengers on the ship, who come from Poland, France, Germany, Spain, and England, have trouble communicating with each other because they come from different parts of Europe.

This leads to cultural tensions as strange things start to happen on the ship. It leads to the travelers finding out a web of secrets that are important to them.

Friese told Deadline Hollywood in an interview how the European migrant crisis and Brexit affected the show. He said:

The whole European angle was very important to us, both for the story and for how we were going to make the movie. It really had to be a cast and crew from Europe working together.

We felt that Europe had been getting worse over the past few years, so we wanted to counter Brexit and the rise of nationalism in different countries by going back to the idea of Europeans working and making things together.

It was very important to stay true to the cultures and languages. We didn’t want characters from different countries who all speak English.

We wanted to learn more about this place in the middle of Europe where everyone is from somewhere else and speaks a different language. Language is a big part of culture and behavior, and we wanted to learn more about it.
