The Volume featurette is available HERE. 

Berlin, November 28, 2022 – After a brilliant start for1899 in the past few weeks, two exciting featurettes grant us exclusive insight behind the scenes of the extraordinary mystery series, which is currently in the Top 10 in 90 countries. 

1899 tells a thoroughly international story with a cast no less international than the immigrants aboard the Kerberos – all of them speaking in their mother tongue. An entertaining featurette on multilingualism shows how the team overcame language barriers and still had time for fun and games in the filming breaks.

1899 was the first German series to be filmed with the revolutionary Volume technology, which transformed the series into a breathtaking experience and was so real for the actors while they were filming that some of the cast even got seasick. Feel like one of the crew with the exciting Volume featurette. 

1899 has been available worldwide and exclusively on Netflix since November 17.

Further press materials are available in our Media Center and follow the link to the series on Netflix HERE.

About 1899

The eight episodes follow mysterious events during the voyage of an immigrant ship from Europe to New York. The passengers, all of different backgrounds, are united by their hopes for a new century and their future abroad. When they discover a second ship adrift on the open sea that had gone missing for months, their journey takes an unexpected turn. What they find on board will turn their passage to the promised land into a nightmare-like riddle, connecting each of the passenger’s pasts through a web of secrets. 


After their global success with DARK (Netflix), the showrunner duo Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar founded the production company DARK WAYS. With their company, they hope to produce high quality stories and distribute them worldwide. The series 1899 marks the first production by DARK WAYS.
