1899 release date, time, plot, and cast for Netflix’s Dark follow-up

Everything you need to know.

It’s been over two years since Netflix delivered the final season of Dark, a German time-travel epic that redefined the genre and proved international entertainment could thrive on the streaming service. Now, we’re finally getting a follow-up from series creators Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese in the form of 1899, a nautical thriller where nothing is what it seems.

The plot of 1899 seems even more confusing than Dark — and that’s really saying something — but before we can get into the plot itself, you’ll have to actually watch the new show. On that note, you might be wondering exactly what time 1899 hits Netflix. We’ve got that info for you here along with lots more.
