‘Dark’ creators return with new mystery period drama ‘1899’ – watch the trailer!

Netflix has released a full-length trailer for the much-anticipated 1899.

Set at the end of the 19th century, the upcoming mystery period drama follows the mysterious circumstances on board an immigrant ship traveling from Europe to New York.

1899 comes from the creators of Netflix’s award-winning German show Dark, and this “deeply immersive” series looks similarly mind-bending!

Described as “a multi-language series,” 1899 boasts an international ensemble cast, with all the characters speaking in their own tongue.

British cast members include Emily Beecham (Cruella), Anton Lesser (Endeavour), and Aneurin Barnard (War & Peace).

They’re joined by Andreas Pietschmann, Miguel Bernardeau, Maciej Musial, Lucas Lynggaard Tønnesen, Rosalie Craig, Clara Rosager, Maria Erwolter, Yann Gael, Mathilde Ollivier, José Pimentão, Isabella Wei, Gabby Wong, Jonas Bloquet, Fflyn Edwards, and Alexandre Willaume.

Following the teaser that was unveiled at Netflix’s fan event Tadum in September, we’ve now got an epic official two-minute trailer to get us even more intrigued.

You can watch that here:


“None of this makes any sense,” one character says.

Yep, this is definitely from the same team that made Dark!

On their journey across the vast and treacherous Atlantic Ocean, the passengers of the Kerberos are about to encounter the biggest mystery of their lives…

All eight episodes will be streaming exclusively on Netflix from Thursday 17th November.

1899 started shooting last summer, becoming the first Netflix series to be filmed entirely in a virtual studio, using a custom built virtual production stage near Berlin, Germany.

The official synopsis for 1899 reads: “The passengers, all of different backgrounds and nationalities, are united by their hopes and dreams for a new century and their future abroad.

“When they discover a second ship adrift on the open sea that had gone missing for months, their journey takes an unexpected turn.

“What they find on board will turn their passage to the promised land into a nightmare-like riddle, connecting each of the passenger’s pasts through a web of secrets.”

Offering a few more hints, Netflix has now teased: “It’s definitely not the journey the European emigrants aboard the Kerberos expect when their trip to New York is disrupted by the discovery of a missing ship.

“The Prometheus is adrift on the open sea, and when the Kerberos crew board their sister steamship, they find it eerily empty. So, where is everyone?”

As for that three-sided logo, Netflix commented: “And what about the triangle created by the different angles and behind the logo? There’s the popular maritime myth of the Bermuda Triangle, where ships are lost and never found. Does the Bermuda Triangle have any role in 1899?”

We’ll find out soon!
