1899 Season 2 Release Date: What Will Happen In 2022?

1899 Season 2 Release Date: There are times when a foreign language series debuts on Netflix and completely eclipses the competition. At first, there was Dark, then Squid Games were cancelled, and now the year 1899 is all anyone can talk about on our timelines.

It’s subtitled in multiple languages, and the official summary reads: “When inexplicable occurrences disrupt the route of an immigrant ship destined for New York in 1899, a mind-bending enigma develops for its baffled passengers.” Fans wonder if there will be a second season now that it has soared into Netflix’s Top 10 Most-Watched. This is what we know about season two of 1899 thus far.

1899 Season 2 Plot

The second season of 1899 has been officially renewed, but plot details remain scant until the formal renewal announcement is made. With the trailer’s apparent popularity, however, the show’s ratings are sure to skyrocket in the all-important first month.

According to NetflixLife.com, the trailer for 1899 has been viewed over eight million times, whilst the trailers for Young Royals season 2 and Wednesday have each received over one million and five million views, respectively, in the same time frame.

We mention these figures because co-creator Jantje Friese recently revealed to Deadline that 1899 would have numerous seasons if the pilot is successful. If what you’ve seen thus far has piqued your interest, then continue binge-watching.

Season two, as anybody who has watched the first season knows, promises some massive changes, including a time jump of 200 years when our heroes discover they are not in 1899 after all but instead travelling through the cosmos on a secret mission. Read on for our finale analysis and thoughts on what the second season will bring.

The show features a diverse and multilingual ensemble that often has trouble communicating with one another because they are using their native languages. It was crucial to maintain the integrity of the languages and cultures. Friese said to Deadline, “We never wanted to have people from other nationalities, but everyone speaks English.”

Because “language defines so much of your culture and behaviour,” we were interested in visiting “this heart of Europe,” where everyone is transplanted from somewhere else and speaks a different language. Since Netflix has remained very mum on the specifics of 1899, it’s anyone’s guess who will survive to the end of the first season and go on into the second. 

However, Season 1 features a horde of talented actors, such as Emily Beecham as neurologist Maura Franklin, Andreas Pietschmann as Captain Eyk Larsen, Miguel Bernardeau as wealthy Spaniard ngel, José Pimento as the priest Ramiro, Mathilde Ollivier and Jonas Bloquet as Parisian aristocrats Clémence and Lucien, and so on. 

Gabby Wong and Isabella Wei play Ling Yi and Yuk Je, two unidentified Chinese airline passengers. Yann Gael as French fighter Jérôme, Lucas Lynggaard Tnnesen as disfigured Dane Krester, and Rosalie Craig as affluent British passenger Virginia.

1899 Season 2 Potential Premiere Date

Seasonal releases on Netflix typically occur once a year, which may put the premiere around November 2023. The show is filmed using cutting-edge technology, so there is a chance that a second season set in 1899 could air even sooner. The show, like The Mandalorian, is shot on a massive stage in a “virtual production” studio.

An LED background that follows the camera in real-time gives the impression that the scene is being shot in natural light. The usage of a green screen is unnecessary because of the real-time nature of the effects, which also speeds up the editing process.

According to what Friese said to Deadline, “we originally planned to fly to Spain, Poland, Scotland, all kinds of locales.” We realized pretty quickly [after the pandemic began] that this might not be possible in the new future, so we threw ourselves into bringing Europe to us.

The second season of 1899 won’t premiere until at least 2024, barring any unforeseen developments. That’s if the show gets picked up for a second season at sea.
