The creators of the spooky maritime thriller 1899 have revealed that the excellent ship Kerberos will not embark on a second voyage, as the series has not been renewed. According to premiere dates, Netflix has officially canceled the 1899 Season 2 Series.
The show’s creators, Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar, posted on Instagram:
“With a heavy heart, we must tell you that 1899 will not be renewed. We would have loved to finish this incredible journey with a 2nd and 3rd season as we did with Dark. But sometimes, things don’t turn out the way you planned. That’s life.”
Bo Odar continued:
“We know this will disappoint millions of fans. But we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts that you were a part of this wonderful adventure. We love you. Never forget.”
Fans are understandably devastated by the cancellation and have taken to social media to express their sorrow. The cast of the show has also expressed their dismay. The actor who portrayed Krester, Lucas Lynggaard Tnnesen, wrote on Twitter,
“As a lot of you may already know… 1899 will not be renewed for a 2nd and 3rd season… We are all truly devastated by this fact.This photo was taken the first night I met these people. You can take away the show, but you can’t take away family. Thank you all for watching. x L”
Captivating Three-Season Plan by Friese & Odar to Uncover Ship’s Mysteries
The creators, Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar, had an ambitious three-season plan for unraveling the ship’s mysteries. “We always know the destination, the conclusion of the journey, and the greatest reveal,” Friese said. Unfortunately, after one season, Netflix canceled the show.
Initially, they disclosed that they had created the show with two additional seasons in mind.
Friese told IndieWire.
“For us, it was important that you feel unbalanced in the first episode, really from the get-go. It feels like an 1899 historical drama, but something is off. What we constantly do is play with expectations. You read a code, expect something, and feel safe in that. You think you figured it out. We’re breaking that expectation and then hopefully giving you a satisfactory answer. At least at the end of Season 3, but hopefully already during the first season.”
