It has just been confirmed that Netflix will not be signing off on a second season for 1899. The news was a surprise to the fans as 1899 had one of the more successful show launches with 79.27 million hours of viewership in its first four days of release, on top of making it on the streaming platform's Top 10 list in November.
1899 co-creator Baran bo Odar took to Instagram to break the news with:
With a heavy heart we have to tell you that ‘1899’ will not be renewed. We would have loved to finish this incredible journey with a second and third season as we did with ‘Dark.’ But sometimes things don’t turn out the way you planned. That’s life. We know this will disappoint millions of fans out there. But we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts that you were a part of this wonderful adventure. We love you. Never forget.
