1899: Netflix series canceled after allegations of plagiarism

Netflix series 1899, accused of plagiarism by a Brazilian cartoonist, will not be renewed for a second season. The announcement was made on social media this Monday (01/02) by the creator of the production, Swiss screenwriter Baran Bo Odar.

“It is with a heavy heart that we must say that 1899 will not be renewed. We’d love to wrap up this incredible journey with a 2nd and 3rd season like we did with Dark. But sometimes things don’t go the way you planned. That’s life,” began the statement, which is also signed by Jantje Friese, cocreator.
