Are you on the lookout for a new Netflix show to binge? Then 1899, from the team behind Dark, might be just that.
The eight episodes follow the mysterious circumstances around the voyage of an immigrant ship from Europe to New York. During their journey, a variety of mysterious circumstances will unfold.
The passengers, who come from a variety of cultures and nationalities, are brought together by their hopes and aspirations for the new century and their future abroad.
Their pilgrimage takes an unexpected turn when they come across a second ship adrift on the open sea that has been missing for months.
What they discover on board will turn their journey to the promised land into a nightmare-like puzzle, tying each passenger’s pasts together through a web of secrets.
The show boasts an incredible ensemble cast, which includes The Witcher’s Maciej Musial, The Nun’s Jonas Bloquet, and Into The Badlands’ Emily Beecham.
They will be joined by Aneurin Barnard, Andreas Pietschmann, Miguel Bernardeau, Lucas Lynggaard Tønnesen, Rosalie Craig, Clara Rosager, Maria Erwolter, Yann Gael, Mathilde Ollivier, José Pimentão, Isabella Wei, Gabby Wong, Fflyn Edwards, Alexandre Willaume and Anton Lasser.
Writer, producer and showrunner Jantje Friese said in a statement: ‘1899 is a truly European series with characters from various countries speaking in the language of their origin.
‘We feel very fortunate to have found amazing talent from all over the world to venture into this exciting journey with us.’
In another interesting twist, the entire show will be filmed in a newly custom built virtual production stage, which is the largest LED ‘Volume’ of its kind in Europe.
1899 is expected to arrive on Netflix in late 2021 but a release date is yet to be confirmed.
