One of the most-anticipated shows of the year, 1899, finally dropped on Netflix on November 17. The show has been created by the creators behind Dark, one of the platform’s highest-rated series, so expectations were certainly high from 1899.
And, the show did live up to the expectations. While it does not feature mind-bending time-travel tales like Dark, 1899’s sci-fi and mystery themes make up for a compelling watch. Audiences who have already binged on the show are now waiting for the second season. But has 1899 been renewed for season 2? Read on to find out.
Will there be 1899 Season 2?
At the time of writing, Netflix has not officially confirmed the show’s renewal for a second season. However, fans need not worry as the streaming platform usually takes some time before deciding the fate of the show and considers a number of factors before renewal, including the viewership number and the cost that went into the making.
Since the first season of 1899 just came out recently, it is possible that Netflix may not announce the show’s renewal for a few weeks or months. However, looking at the hype around the series, we can expect it to return for a second season.
The excitement around the show can be judged from the views on its trailer. The official trailer of 1899 has over 8 million views currently, which makes it one of the highest-watched trailers for a Netflix show. For comparison, the Young Royals season 2 trailer that debuted on the same day has only around a million views.
Going by the views on the trailer, we can safely say that a lot of people are going to watch the show as well, which can lead to its renewal. The first season also ended with a number of questions unanswered, so a new season will be needed from the story point-of-view as well.
1899 co-creator, Jantje Friese, had earlier said in an interview with Deadline that they are trying to make a multi-season show, but it will eventually depend on how well the first season is received.
When will 1899 Season 2 be Released?
Since Netflix has not yet officially announced the renewal, the release date of 1899 Season 2 can not be confirmed as of now. The first season was filmed between May 2021 and November 2021 and was released in November 2022. So it took over a year for post-production.
If the same trend is followed with the new season, the series will take around 1 and a half years to return to Netflix. So we can predict that if season 2 is green-lit in the upcoming weeks, 1899 will make its return in 2024.
Who will Return in 1899 Season 2?
All of the lead cast of the show is expected to reprise their roles in the second season. The star cast includes Andreas Pietschmann as Eyk Larsen, Aneurin Barnard as Daniel Solace, Emily Beecham as Maura Franklin, Miguel Bernardeau as Ángel, José Pimentão as Ramiro, Isabella Wei as Ling Yi, Gabby Wong as Yuk Je and Yann Gael as Jérôme.
Other cast members who could return are Mathilde Ollivier as Clémence, Jonas Bloquet as Lucien, Rosalie Craig as Virginia, Maciej Musiał as Olek, Clara Rosager as Tove, Lucas Lynggaard Tønnesen as Krester, Maria Erwolter as Iben, Alexandre Willaume as Anker and Tino Mewes as Sebastian.
