There will be no follow-up to 1899, with Netflix cancelling the series after just one season.
The show, which was created by Dark showrunners Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar, followed a group of European emigrants as they travel from Southampton to New York City, with the only season consisting of eight episodes.
In a post on Instagram, bo Odar confirmed the news, writing: “With a heavy heart we have to 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. We know this will disappoint millions of fans out there,” he continued. “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.”
The series starred Emily Beecham, Aneurin Barnard, Andreas Pietschmann and Gabby Wong; bo Odar served as director, with Friese co-writing with a list of collaborators.
Wong, who played a Hong Kong native, recently shared her initial thoughts on the series finale, which had left some fans perplexed: “I read the final episode at four o’clock in the morning while I was breastfeeding my son at the time who was a newborn, and I think I punched my husband,” she said.
“That was my reaction. I punched my husband and punched him awake. Oh, that’s the ending!,” she continued. “Even though you might not have gotten any answers or any elaboration of it in season one, every single person in that room is there for a reason.”
Unfortunately for Wong and fans of the show, the fate of the Kerberos travellers will forever remain unknown; unless the show is picked up by a new network.
1899 is streaming on Netflix.
