Peculiarly, Netflix decided to discontinue the show “1899” after just one season.

Netflix’s perplexing mystery thriller 1899 has been canned after just one season.

The ambitious, multilingual series from the team behind Dark, which premiered on the streaming service in November 2022, will not be renewed for Season 2, producers Baran bo Odar and Jantje Freise said on Instagram on Monday.

“We regret to inform you that 1899 will not be renewed for a second season. Our dream was to complete this amazing trip with a second and third season, just like we did with Dark. Nonetheless, life doesn’t always work out the way you expect it to. So goes it, “as it says in the corresponding signed document.

“Millions of fans will be let down, that much is certain. Nonetheless, we like to express our deepest gratitude for your participation in this exciting journey. Our affection for you is unending. Don’t lose sight of the past.”

The eight-part series, set 13 years before the Titanic’s doomed voyage, introduced a diverse cast of characters traveling from London to New York on the migrant steamship Kerberos. The talented cast included Andreas Pietschmann (Dark), Aneurin Barnard (Dunkirk), Emily Beecham (Hail Caesar), and Lucas Lynggaard Tønnesen (The Rain).

The crew and passengers of the Prometheus are lured into a nightmare voyage that disorients time and logic, and finishes on a massive cliffhanger, when they investigate a puzzling signal from a lost ship, the Prometheus, which had been missing for months. Seasons 2 and 3 have been discussed openly by Friese and bo Odar.

Lynggaard Tønnesen, who posted an early photo with his co-stars and wrote that they were “all sincerely upset” by the decision to cancel seasons two and three, too expressed his disappointment at the show’s cancellation.

Since Netflix hasn’t issued a formal statement on the cancellation, Mashable has reached out to the company for comment. It is unclear why the program was discontinued, which is especially perplexing given how much acclaimed it was upon its release in November 2022.

1899 was among Netflix’s top 10 TV Series for a whole month after its debut in November (two episodes premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September). 1899 has been seen for an incredible 87.9 million hours, Netflix said in December.

One possible explanation for the cancellation of 1899 is that it was too expensive to produce (to get a glimpse of the cutting-edge technology used in the making of the show, including the revolutionary LED sets, check out Netflix’s behind-the-scenes special Making 1899 (which opens in a new tab).

Since 2019 when price increases caused a mass exodus of customers, the streaming service has had to tighten its belt. With an expected $17 billion in content investment for 2022, Netflix looks to be back on pace.

Fans of the Netflix show have already established a petition to save it, of course.
