Check Out The Trailer For New Netflix Horror Mystery Series 1899

Netflix is bringing us a brand new period horror series called 1899 and it looks delightfully weird

1899 is new Netflix series from the creators of one of Netflix’s strongest series’, Dark. Not a lot is known about the plot. The trailer does a fantastic job at drawing us in, hooking us but not revealing anything at all.

If you’re a fan of Dark then you will how complexed the story can get. Not only that, but Dark is also a masterclass of mind-fuckery and at the same time oozing with intelligence.

1899 is inspired by the European migrant crisis and also that shambles of a thing we like to call Brexit.

In an interview with Deadline Hollywood,  Jantje Friese, the creator of the new series had this to say

From Wiki

The whole European angle was very important for us, not only story-wise but also the way we were going to produce it. It really had to be a European collaboration, not just cast but also the crew. We felt that with the past years of Europe being on the decline, we wanted to give a counterpoint to Brexit, and to nationalism rising in different countries, to go back to that idea of Europe and Europeans working and creating together. Being true to the cultures and the languages was really important, we never wanted to have characters from different countries but everyone speaks English. We wanted to explore this heart of Europe, where everyone comes from somewhere else and speaks a different language, and language defines so much of your culture and your behaviour.

Jantje Friese

The series was announced at Netflix’s European Original Programming announcement in 2020. It is not confirmed yet but it looks like we won’t be getting to see 1899 until next year.

The official synopsis for 1899 is as follows

Multinational immigrants travelling from the old continent to the new encounter a nightmarish riddle aboard a second ship adrift on the open sea.”

Here’s the trailer. I hope you enjoy it.

More to follow on 1899 as the news is announced. As always, thanks for reading.
