How many seasons will Netflix’s 1899 have? In this article, we discuss the possibility of the second season of 1899 and more to come.
After binge-watching a series, the first question on everyone’s mind is the same – will there be another season? It’s only human nature to want more of a good thing. If you have finished 1899 or are considering starting the series, you may be wondering if the show has been renewed for a second season, if there are more seasons to come and how many seasons there will be of the Netflix original series overall. So, without further ado, let’s look into those burning questions in more detail.
What is 1899 about?
1899 is an epic mystery series about the perilous journey of a steamship heading from Europe to New York, across the unrelenting Atlantic Ocean, at the turn of the new century. The Kerberos is a ship filled with unique characters, all hiding their own dark secrets, all with their own distinct reasons to leave their homes and seek a new life in America. On their journey, they come across a similar ship, the Prometheus, which has been missing in open waters for four months now.
Stepping foot onto this abandoned ghost ship introduces the Kerberos passengers to new, unfathomable horrors as their world starts to fall apart at the seams. As the mysteries unfold, we get to see the many character’s backstories as they reveal their secrets in the present and try to escape their pasts.
Who made Netflix’s 1899?
This sensational original comes from the minds of Dark creators Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese. This director and writer partnership is a professional one and a personal one also, as they are a couple in real life too. The German duo is famous for creating the Netflix original series Dark, which was a huge success for the streaming giants. They have reproduced that partnership once again for a second offering. This latest project seems to be no relation to the previous one but carries similar hallmarks. They are both cryptic and highly addictive shows that utilize many characters and intricate backstories.
How many episodes does 1899 have?
The first season of 1899 includes eight-episode, with each having a running time of around fifty minutes. The installments are evenly paced and consistent in quality, although there are clearly highlights amongst the bunch. The plotting has no dead weight or low points to it and will keep you entertained for the whole duration. It is worth adding that for any early confusion, I advise that you stick with the show until the very end, where it all comes together in a satisfying manner.
How many seasons will 1899 have?
Netflix is yet to renew 1899 for a second season, but the initial response means that it is highly likely that the company will eventually announce its renewal. The creator’s first project for Netflix, Dark, ran for three seasons, totaling 26 episodes. I imagine that they will have mapped out the storyline for more than one season and may even have multiple seasons in mind. The season one finale definitely hints at a larger story at play, and it would be a shame to keep this as a one-off.
If the show continues to build a following, then I would predict a second season being announced very soon. How many seasons overall though, is more unpredictable. If we are to go by history, then I will surmise that they will want to keep 1899 to three seasons also. Hopefully, we will be blessed with a second season, a third is just a pipedream for now. As always, we will keep you up to date on the renewal status of 1899.
