The Trailer for the Netflix Horror Series 1899 Features Passengers Boarding a Mysterious Ship

If you’re a fan of the spooky German-language mystery series Dark, Netflix has more frightening content on the horizon. Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar, the creators of Dark, are going to release the intense-looking 1899, and the latest trailer has just arrived. “What is lost will be recovered,” reads the slogan. However, this may not be good news for all…

The story takes place in 1899 when the Kerberos sets sail from Southampton to New York on what is meant to be a straightforward journey. As you can see, however, the expedition is interrupted by the reappearance of the Prometheus, which had been presumed lost for several months. There is a diversion to take, but the result is anything but straightforward. What has Prometheus been doing? What are these glyphs? The wind begins to howl in the distance, outside in the cold. Too much uncertainty. Can’t get any relief.

A few instances in the promotional material give off strong J-horror overtones, but there is also the diabolical aroma of a Victorian Event Horizon. If you’re familiar with Dark, however, you should anticipate the unexpected as Friese and Odar’s most recent nightmare unfolds.

In Greek mythology, Kerberos is the multi-headed dog that guards the gateway to Hades. And Prometheus is the unfortunate celestial who attempted to steal fire from the other gods and was thus condemned to an eternity of pain. So make what you will of that…

Eight episodes of 1899, starring Andreas Pietschmann of Dark, Emily Beecham, Anton Lesser, Aneurin Barnard, Miguel Bernardeau, and Maciej Musial, will debut on Netflix on November 17.
