The first look at Netflix’s mysterious “1899” series
A new TV shows from the creators of the excellent Dark series is coming soon. And of course, again it is an unusual and mysterious series, but this time the plot follows a group of immigrants traveling by boat from Europe to New York at the turn of the last century. For the time being, it is difficult to determine the series with accuracy, because although it is obviously a matter of drama and horror, we still do not know what horrors await us, that is, whether they are supernatural. Either way, Netflix today unveiled the first look at the 1899 series by creators Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar. See the first official photo and a short mysterious teaser below the article.
The first season of the 1899 series consists of eight episodes, which focus on the mysterious events of an immigrant ship’s journey from Europe to New York. Travelers, of different origins and nationalities, are united in their hopes and dreams for a new century and a new future abroad. But when they discover another ship on the high seas that has long since disappeared, their journey unexpectedly turns into a nightmare.
The international cast consists of Emily Beecham, Aneurin Barnard, Andreas Pietschmann, Miguel Bernardeau, Maciej Musial, Lucas Lynggaard Tonnesen, Rosalie Craig, Clara Rosager, Maria Erwolter, Yann Gael, Mathilde Ollivier, José Pimentao, Isabella Wi, Fflyn Edwards, Alexandre Willaume and Anton Lesser. Interestingly, in fact, all the actors will speak in their native language.
“Knowing that we made [the Dark series], everyone can be sure that this is going to be something weird, wild and crazy.” Said Odar.
“All passengers on a ship travel with secrets they don’t want to come to light. The series has been rebuilt like a jigsaw puzzle. ” Friese added.
The pilot bears the occasional title of The Ship. It was initially planned for the series to arrive on Netflix in 2021, but given that the start of production was in April and the completion planned for September 2021, this is now impossible, so the first season is expected sometime in 2022.
