Netflix has finally announced when and where the upcoming 1899 mystery-horror TV show will be shown in other countries. In the past few years, one of the most popular German TV shows was Dark, which ran on Netflix for three exciting seasons.
This week, the brains behind the hit horror series Dark are back on the OTT streaming giant with another original concept: the mystery horror show 1899.
Now that Netflix has announced the international release date for 1899, fans won’t have to guess when the show will be available everywhere. Here’s everything they need to know.
What is the Story of 1899?
The creators of the Dark franchise, Jantje Friese and Baran bo Adar, are making a new epic mystery-horror TV show called 1899. The series takes place in 1899 on a migrant steamship going from Europe to the United States of America.
“The passengers, a mixed bag of European origins, united by their hopes and dreams for the new century and their future abroad. But their journey takes an unexpected turn when they discover another migrant ship adrift on open sea.” – 1899 synopsis, via Netflix Media Center.
After investigating this second migrant ship, the passengers come across a sickening revelation…something that “will turn their passage to the promised land into a horrifying nightmare.”
The series was made in Germany, but you can watch it with subtitles in English, Spanish, French, Polish, German, Danish, Portuguese, and Cantonese.
1899 Release Date and Time Verified
The world premiere of 1899 is set for this Thursday, November 17 on the Netflix streaming platform.

“The whole European angle was very important for us, not only story wise but also the way we were going to produce it. It really had to be a European collaboration, not just cast but also crew. We felt that with the past years of Europe being on the decline, we wanted to give a counterpoint to Brexit, and to nationalism rising in different countries, to go back to that idea of Europe and Europeans working and creating together.” – Jantje Friese, via Deadline.

“Being true to the cultures and the languages was really important, we never wanted to have characters from different countries but everyone speaks English,” Friese explains.
“We wanted to explore this heart of Europe, where everyone comes from somewhere else and speaks a different language, and language defines so much of your culture and your behavior.” – Jantje Friese.
