People were left surprised at the brilliant plot, filming, and cast when the series Dark was first released. So when the same creators announced a second project, titled 1899, everyone was more than thrilled about it. 1899 might leave you with a faster heart rate as the series promises to be just as compelling as Dark, if not more. Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese struck a deal with Netflix, so maybe after 1899, there will be more in store for the fans.
Right now, however, our focus remains on 1899, as it will premiere on your screens very soon. Ahead of its release, we’re here to tell you everything you need to know about this compelling series that holds great promise. There will be several talented cast members, a unique storyline, and much more. So here’s everything you need to know about before its release:

What is the Plot of 1899?
The Movie is set to be a period drama, which might have been slightly apparent from the title itself. However, this series’ genre has piqued the viewers’ interest already. It will be a mix of horror and mystery and will follow the story of a group of European immigrants. These immigrants come from different walks of life, which promises diversity amongst the cast and the characters. The series will be set in 1899, and the European immigrants are making their way to New York City in the hopes of something better as they are on the brink of a new century.
However, things sometimes go differently than planned, especially not when there needs to be a twist in the fate of the characters. As these immigrants make their way to New York City on a steamship, they come in contact with another migrant ship drifting in the open sea. Their hopes and dreams soon turn into a nightmare. What should have been a smooth sailing journey to the land where all dreams come true takes a turn for the worse.
While Dark focused more on science fiction, The Movie will undoubtedly take a different route. Although the creators are the same, that is probably the only thing Dark, and 1899 will have in common. However, this is for the best. Dark was a brilliant series, but viewers are looking for something new this time, and 1899 will fill that void. A range of horrors will be uncovered in 1899, and it is only a matter of time before we find out what they are.
The Cast of 1899
The cast of 1899 will be different from that of Dark, with fresh and talented faces across the sea. Although there will be one familiar face, you might have seen in Dark, Andreas Pietschmann. He will have an exciting role to play in this series, albeit very different from that of Dark. The other cast members of 1899 are as follows:
- Emily Beecham (Hail, Caesar!)
- Aneurin Barnard (The White Queen)
- Andreas Pietschmann (Dark)
- Miguel Bernardeau (Elite)
- Anton Lesser (The Scapegoat)
- Lucas Lynggaard Tønnesen (The Rain)
- Maciej Musiał (My Pole)
- Rosalie Craig (Anatomy of a Scandal)
- Clara Rosager (Before the Frost)
These cast members are only the tip of the iceberg, as we will witness an ensemble cast throughout the episodes. Even though there’s no telling how many of their characters will make it out alive until the last episode of this series. There will also be a mix of languages because, as mentioned before, all characters come from different backgrounds. So most of the cast will be speaking in their native language. So make sure you keep your subtitles on.
When and Where Can You Watch 1899?
Initially, It was meant to release in the year 2021. However, the delay in production made that impossible. Nevertheless, the creators and their production house, Dark Ways, managed to pull off a 2022 release. 1899 is officially set to premiere on the 17th of November, and all episodes will be available to stream on Netflix. The series will have a total of eight episodes, and all of them will be an hour long. The first episode of 1899 is titled “The Ship.”
Is There a Trailer for 1899?
Netflix released the official teaser for 1899 a few months ago, and we’re hoping the official trailer will be released in the coming days. The comment section of the teaser seems incredibly hopeful, with just a glimpse of eight hours of content they will eventually get to watch. Although the teaser doesn’t give away many details, we can tell that the cast will be larger than ever, just as the production scale is.
All characters seem to have something unique about them as they find themselves in a situation that could have never been predicted. It is only a matter of time until we see the official trailer and get a better idea of what’s to come.
One of the main reasons people have high expectations for 1899 is because of the creators and their previous show, Dark. 1899 will prove to be one of the finest German series ever made, along with receiving critical acclamation all across the globe. Keep your spooky spirit intact until November, and watch 1899! Please let us know what you have predicted for this series in the comment section.
