Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar, the creators of the acclaimed Netflix mystery series Dark are back with a new series called 1899 and this one looks like it’s going to be twistier than ever. Netflix shared some fun behind-the-scenes featurettes and a short teaser at Geeked Week earlier this year and now we finally have an official release date set for this November!
1899 will be similar to Dark in that it’s a mystery show, but this one will lean more into horror and it’s a period epic that takes place on the open sea. A group of immigrants is sailing on a steamship from London to New York when they get caught up in a strange riddle and spot a second vessel adrift in the ocean.
We also know that the first season will consist of eight episodes, likely each an hour long in length.
1899 confirmed for a November release date
During Netflix’s annual Tudum fan event, it was announced that 1899 season 1 would premiere on November 17, 2022. Luckily for us, that’s not too far away which means we have plenty of time to revisit Dark to get a reminder of just how talented Odar and Friese are as storytellers.
