There will be no sequel to the TV show ‘1899’ since Netflix canceled the series after only one season. The news has definitely left the showrunners and its actors disappointed but the same cannot be said of the internet sleuths. On the contrary, some have expressed joy with their reactions on Twitter.

The only season of the show which was developed by Dark showrunners Jantje Friese and Baran Bo Odar featured eight episodes and portrayed a group of European immigrants as they traveled from Southampton to New York City. Bo Odar verified the information in a post on Instagram, writing, "With a heavy heart we have to tell you that 1899 will not be renewed. We would have loved to finish this incredible journey with a 2nd and 3rd season as we did with Dark. But sometimes things don’t turn out the way you planned.” "That’s life. We know this will disappoint millions of fans out there," he continued. "But we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts that you were a part of this wonderful adventure. We love you. Never forget."

Emily Beecham, Aneurin Barnard, Andreas Pietschmann, and Gabby Wong starred in the series which was directed by Bo Odar and co-written by Friese and a number of other writers. Wong, who portrayed a native of Hong Kong, recently revealed her immediate reactions to the season finale which confused several viewers, "I read the final episode at four o’clock in the morning while I was breastfeeding my son at the time who was a newborn, and I think I punched my husband," she said. "That was my reaction. I punched my husband and punched him awake. Oh, that's the ending!" she told Digital Spy. "Even though you might not have gotten any answers or any elaboration of it in season one, every single person in that room is there for a reason." Unless the show gets picked up by a new network, Wong and the show's viewers will never know what became of the Kerberos travelers.

Although, it seems that the show’s cancelation on Netflix has not left many worried as internet users were happy to let go of the TV series. One person on Twitter commented: “Now I feel better about not making it through the first episode." Another one added, "Great decision. Pathetic series." One user shared, "Even though i didn't enjoy the series that much, I was still looking forward to a 2nd season. They didn't have to cancel it."

Another one said, "maybe if they got an actual premise and certain mindblowing plot (like time travel in dark) and not some vague story about ship passengers netflix would renew it." One person claimed, "Thank God, it was atrocious." Another one added, "Good move,too lengthy and boring." One tweet read: "only just had a conversation over Christmas about how Netflix always cancel a series before it reaches a conclusion and how this business plan will ruin them. 1899 is cancelled and it's my cue to go. Good riddance Netflix, hope you go out of business soon."
