The creative duo behind Netflix’s Dark eyeing 1899 for next series

The two that helmed the Netflix original German series Dark already have their sights set on a new project. According to Deadline, Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar announced today that their next series will be 1899, which tells the story of a migrant ship traveling the Atlantic at the turn of the century.

The original series will follow the passengers on the boat, who are a mixed bag Europeans united by their hopes and dreams for the new century and the new world that lies ahead. After the steamship discovers another migrant ship adrift on the open sea, everyone’s journey takes an unexpected turn. What they find on board will turn their travels to the promised land into a terrifying nightmare.

What really made us connect to this idea was the concept of having a truly European show with a mixed cast from different countries. At its heart is the question of what unites us and what divides us — and how fear can be a trigger for the latter,” Friese and Baran bo Odar said in a statement.

There’s no word on a premiere date just yet. In the meantime, season two of Dark is in production for a 2019 premiere. The sophomore season will chronicle how the disappearance of two young children ends up exposing the double lives and fractured relationships among four families in a German town.
