Is the 1899 Netflix release date confirmed? When is the series out and what can audiences expect from the cast and plot?

Netflix has delivered some of the most acclaimed shows in recent memory and there is always something to look forward to.

There is something to enjoy on the platform for fans of all genres, and if science-fiction is your thing, then we’re sure that Dark needs no introduction.

It ran for three seasons from 2017 to 2020 and was created by Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese, who are now set to return with a brand new series called 1899. A first look image was unveiled in May 2021.

So, do we have an 1899 Netflix release date just yet?

1899 Netflix release date confirmed?

  • 1899 is expected to arrive on Netflix in late 2021 but a release date is yet to be confirmed.

Fans of Baran and Jantje’s work will be pleased to know that production on the forthcoming series commenced a virtual production stage in Germany in May 2021. So, the ball is rolling and audiences will likely be invited to check out episodes in the fall.

The multilingual drama series stars Emily Beecham (The Pursuit of Love) and Anton Lesser (Game of Thrones), along with a host of others we have highlighted below.

While filming may be ongoing, there is already an ominous teaser that viewers can check out and Netflix has offered a synopsis, addressing that the tale begins when “a migrant steamship heads west to leave the old continent”:

“The passengers, a mixed bag of European origins, [are] united by their hopes and dreams for the new century and their future abroad. But their journey takes an unexpected turn when they discover another migrant ship adrift on open sea. What they will find on board, will turn their passage to the promised land into a horrifying nightmare.”

As the title suggests, 1899 is set in the last year of the 1800s.
