1899 cancelled by Netflix
Netflix has come under scrutiny in recent years for cancelling several fan-favourites. And 2023 looks to be no different with yet another original being axed from the streaming platform. 1899, the new sci-fi series from the creators of the universally-acclaimed German series Dark, has been cancelled after just one season. Fans of the series will be disappointed considering season one ended in a cliffhanger. Creators Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar confirmed the news on social media in a joint statement and shared their dismay at not being able to fulfil their vision for the story. As they say, some mysteries are never meant to be solved.
