1899 season 2 release date speculation, cast, plot, and more

The creators of Dark have constructed another wild Netflix series, and the 1899 season 2 release date could take us to even weirder places than the first

When is the 1899 season 2 release date? 1899 is a mind-bending new Netflix series from the creators of Dark, Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar. Set in 1899 (Editor: who’d have thought it?) the TV series follows the steamship Kerberos as it makes its way from London to the bright lights of New York City.

Before the Kerberos can complete its journey, however, those aboard find a seemingly abandoned ship adrift at sea. As the crew and passengers try and work out what happened to this boat, they find themselves trapped in a terrifying mystery. 1899 has opened to rave reviews and ends with some mind-boggling reveals, so inevitably, fans want to know, what is the 1899 season 2 release date?

1899 season 2 release date speculation

Netflix has cancelled 1899, meaning season 2 is unlikely to ever come out. There was some hope the show would be given more space to expand, but the service chose not the renew. Co-creator Baran bo Odar broke the news on Instagram.

“We would have loved to finish this incredible journey with a second and third season as we did with Dark,” the post said. “But sometimes things don’t turn out the way you planned.

Plans had been teased for more. “We already have ideas for a second and third season on 1899, and it gets complicated,” bo Odar told The Hollywood Reporter. A pity all around.

What might happen in the 1899 season 2 plot?

The 1899 season 2 plot will likely pick up right where the first season left off, on board the space station Prometheus in the year 2099. Maria had woken up from suspended animation, and received a message from Ciaran telling her this is the real world.

She’s surrounded by many of the other survivors, who all appear to be in a deep, induced sleep as they travel across the stars. No further context is given, but that’s what season 2 is for, if it ever happens.

Going by Dark, we can expect timelines to start forking off and multiple layers to keep track of. Given that bo Odar has said 1899 “gets complicated”, whatever goes on next should be suitably wild.

Who’ll be in the 1899 season 2 cast?

We can expect all of the surviving 1899 cast to return for season 2, led by Emily Beecham as Laura. Dark maintained the same cast through all three seasons, and it seems logical 1899 would follow the same idea, letting us see these characters as they traverse the incredible story.

1899 season 2 cast speculation:

  • Emily Beecham as Laura
  • Aneurin Barnard as Daniel Solace
  • Andreas Pietschmann as Eyk Larsen
  • Yann Gael as Jérôme
  • Isabella Wei as Ling Yi
  • José Pimentão as Ramiro
  • Maciej Musiał as Olek
  • Fflyn Edwards as Elliot

We’ll keep this list updated as more become apparent!
