Netflix has just released the new creation by the German filmmaker couple, Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar, responsible for one of the biggest international hits on the platform, ‘Dark’. In ‘1899’, Friese and bo Odar return to some features or themes that were presented in ‘Dark’, but the idea itself is very different. Even so, the series has managed to charm fans who already knew the work of the filmmakers, at the same time that it seems to have fit very well with those who did not know their first series. But, What can we expect for the second season of ‘1899’? Will the story get even more complicated as it did with its predecessor as the seasons progressed?
On November 16, one day before the premiere of the series, the creators had an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, where they talked about the future of ‘1899’, the inevitable comparisons with ‘Dark’, and other issues related to script issues. or address. Considering its future on Netflix, it should be noted that the platform has not yet confirmed the second season, but the creators seem to be clear that we will be able to continue enjoying its mysterious plots, Well, they themselves have announced that they are already working on ideas for the following seasons.
“Yes. We always like to have an end before we start. We want to know where we are going. We are progressing in a story and we want to know how it will be resolved in the end. In between, there may be some more loose ideas. And, as we go through the process, ideas can change and move to a different position. For example, in ‘Dark’, the idea of the parallel universe was always planned for the second season. And then as we were working on it, we decided to move it into season three. Those things always happen. You try to be flexible, to allow the process to surprise you as you carry it out, but knowing where you are going”Friese commented in response to whether they already had in mind what could happen in the next two seasons.
Additionally, the creators discussed the comparisons to ‘Dark’ and noted that they had no intention of “copy exactly the way we structured things on ‘Dark'”. According to Friese, ‘1899’ has a very different structure, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to be any easier than its predecessor. “We try to be very true to our core audience, who love puzzles, but also know every code and every culture. They’re really good at putting the pieces together. We want it to be a great experience for them and not too much. easy. If you’re in that main group and you’ve cracked it, you should be proud of yourself, it’s an amazing experience.”explained the screenwriter.
the game gets complicated
For his part, bo Odar explained that we must not forget that ‘Dark’ had three seasons, and that we have only seen one of ‘1899’, so we have not yet been able to see all the complexity of the series, which still has at least two seasons to develop all its plots well and solve the puzzles. “If you just compare the first season of ‘Dark’ to the first season of ‘1899,’ I think they have a similar complexity. ‘Dark’ only really got complicated in seasons two and three. The first season is actually very simple: It’s a small town, with kids going missing, and then there are some time travel events in the cave. Michael (Sebastian Rudolph) is Michael. He is very simple. But now everyone has seen all three seasons, and it gets really complicated. We already have ideas for a second and third season of ‘1899’, and it will be more complicated,” explained the director.
Now we can only wait for Netflix’s announcement for a second season and, by the way, get rid of the idea of the relationship of ‘Dark’ with ‘1899’, since the creators have confirmed that they are not related: “A bad idea that we definitely said won’t happen is ‘1899’ being related to ‘Dark.’ to suddenly appear on the ship”clarified bo Odar.
The first season of ‘1899’ is now available on Netflix and consists of 8 chapters ranging from 50 minutes to 1 hour in length.
