40 facts of 1899 | The Most Beloved Netflix Series 1899, According to Reviewers

The “Dark” producers have a new Netflix multilingual series called “1899.” Three seasons are planned by the creators.


In light of this, let's explore some information regarding the new series 1899, According to Reviewers.

German epic period mystery-science fiction television series 1899 is available online in multiple languages.

Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese are the series’ creators.

On November 17, 2022, Netflix introduced it.

The majority of the reviews in the press have been favourable, praising the performances, direction, photography, and casting.

Despite several complaints that the pacing was excessively slow

The producers are considering two additional seasons.

The tale, which is set in 1899, centres on a group of European immigrants sailing from London to New York City on the steamer Kerberos to begin new lives.

Creators of Dark Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar revealed on November 13, 2018, that they were working on a project for Netflix as part of their overall contract with the streaming giant.

Two weeks later, at a Netflix press event presenting European original programming, the series’ progress was verified.


Bo Odar confirmed on Instagram in July 2020 that Friese had finished penning the script for “The Ship,” the show’s premiere episode.

Friese described how the European migration crisis and Brexit had an impact on the series in an interview with Deadline Hollywood.

Like Dark, Friese was the show’s primary writer.


The staff writing team was made up of authors from various countries, including Daro Madrona (from Spain), Emil Nygaard Albertsen, Jerome Bucchan-Nelson, Coline Abert, Juliana Lima Dehne, and Emma Ko (from Brazil and the US).

All scripts, according to director Baran bo Odar, were initially written in English before being translated into other languages by staff writers and/or translators.


Language aides were present while filming to check the correctness of the non-English speech, and Odar had phonetic copies of the script on set.

The three-season format is a result of Friese and Bo Odar’s experience with films, which contain three acts.

Two additional seasons, more difficult than season 1, are planned by Friese and Bo Odor.


The first season was used to introduce the topic, characters, and major plot points.

The second season, if it were to be ordered by Netflix, would explain the symbolism of the triangles, and Maura’s brother would play a significant role.

This second act was “all about the fun and games, where you play with the theme and maybe get a little more megalomaniacal and crazy, and then resolve it in the third season into a hopefully satisfying resolution,” according to Odar.


The series has a minimum €60 million ($62.2 million) budget.

Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg contributed €2 million, the German Motion Picture Fund contributed €10 million, and Netflix invested €48 million in the production.

The announcement that Emily Beecham had been chosen for the starring role was made on December 16, 2020.

The most expensive German television programme ever is 1899.


On May 2, 2021, additional actors were added to the cast, including Aneurin Barnard, Andreas Pietschmann, Miguel Bernardeau, Maciej Musia, Anton Lesser, Lucas Lynggaard Tnnesen, Rosalie Craig, Clara Rosager, Maria Erwolter, Yann Gael, Mathilde Ollivier, José Pimento, Isabella Wei, Gabby Wong, Jonas Bloquet, Fflyn Edwards

Each character converses in their native tongue.

On November 24, 2020, the series’ preproduction officially began. A week-long lens test shoot immediately followed.

The series’ first day of main photography was originally set for February 1, 2021, however it was later delayed by three months.


At Studio Babelsberg in Potsdam, the only location recognised by UNESCO as a Creative City of Film in Germany, filming officially began on May 3, 2021.

The series was filmed at Studio Babelsberg in a brand-new virtual production stage called Volume, run by the sister firm of bo Odar and Friese.

Additionally, London, United Kingdom, was used for filming.
