1899 is a multilingual German period mystery-science fiction television series created by Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar. It premiered on Netflix on 17 November 2022. It received mostly positive critical reviews, with praise for its casting, directing, cinematography, and acting. The creators had ideas for two more seasons, but in January 2023, the show was cancelled.

I really enjoyed Dark and although it was slow to start, really enjoyed 1899 by the end of the first season. It is interesting to see the show cancelled by Netflix:

Plans are a funny thing in the streaming business. Obscure shows like Squid Game can find their audience, become cultural juggernauts, and then get additional seasons. Others, like Warrior Nun, can also find rabid fans but just not enough of them to stay alive. As the streaming landscape expands, the possibility of any show surviving starts to feel like Squid Game itself—and the thrum of “red light,” “green light” leaves everyone on their toes.
