The furrow in a person’s brow and the delirium in their eyes are telltale signs that they have seen the German Netflix series Dark. Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar’s 2017–2020 time-travel mystery,
which required a flip-chart of graphs and diagrams to explain, was a cult hit for Netflix and led to a contract between the pair and the streaming service. The year is 1899 (for a review without any spoilers, click here).
Friese assured Deadline that she and Odar’s new Netflix series, “1899,” would be “something weird and wild and crazy” because of their previous work on “Dark.”
The writers and directors have promised that the new eight-part period drama will not be a rehash, but that it will instead provide viewers with a fun puzzle that hearkens back to the duo’s mystery roots.
Successful completion of the task at hand. Watching 1899 is like playing an exciting game. It begins as a multilingual upstairs-downstairs story about class and secrets aboard a steamship traveling from England to America
at the turn of the 20th century but very quickly evolves into Something Else. You may recognize many of the actors from Dark, the Danish dystopian series The Rain, and many others who appear in this film’s massive ensemble cast.
