The storyline of 1899

The 1899 storyline revolved around a group of immigrants traveling to New York City, USA, on the steamer Kerberos. The story of immigrants going on a steamer in 1899 included some unanticipated storyline twists and switches that took the narrative into pure science fiction and surrealism. But one of the things that made the show popular was the unexpected climax. The show earned mostly favorable reviews from critics and spent several weeks at number two on Netflix's Top 10 ranking. On Rotten Tomatoes, it had a decent rating of 76% 

The show's creators confirmed the 1899 cancellation

Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar, the show's creators, had shown interest in bringing 1899 back for two more seasons. Many fans anticipated at least a second season, given the cliffhanger conclusion and the show's creators' ambitions. On the other hand, bo Odar announced the cancellation of 1899 on Instagram on January 2.

Netflix series Dark

Before 1899, the duo had also produced the three-season Netflix series Dark, which was the impetus for the 1899 contract. Friese and Bo Odar claimed to have planned a similar three-season run to Dark for 1899 as things didn't go as planned, so they were forced to call it off.

A possible reason for cancellation

The show's viewership could have been better. Besides that, 1899 created controversy and was accused of Plagiarism by copying the artwork and storyline from the 2016 comic Black Silence in November. Though the creators of 1899 denied it, few expect that it would have been why Netflix canceled the show.

Filmmaker's fury on Netflix

Siddhant Adlakha, a filmmaker and film critic, argued that Netflix didn't give 1899 enough time to build a fanbase for the show. Additionally, he assumed that the Netflix blockbuster Wednesday, which debuted a few days after 1899, may have harmed the show's viewership.

Twitter handlers criticized Netflix

On Twitter, several users have started to call for Netflix to keep 1899 instead of canceling it. They have also criticized the site for canceling other well-known shows after one season.
