1899 ends on a cliffhanger, and leaves audiences wanting more
Netflix’s latest mind-bending fantasy endeavor is leaving audiences thirsty for more, after 1899‘s first season ended on a thrilling cliffhanger. The historical mystery topped lists across the globe, after it arrived on Netflix, but that didn’t stop the streamer from pulling the plug on the widely-popular show. Its decision to do so after leaving so many plot points unresolved is particularly controversial, but Netflix doesn’t really seem to care.
1899 joins dozens of Netflix fantasy endeavors on the chopping block
1899‘s cancellation really shouldn’t come as a surprise, given Netflix’s lack of faith in its fantasy properties, but that isn’t stopping its fans from reacting in outrage. The show became Netflix’s first casualty of 2023, following its cancellation, but it is far from alone. The show serves as the 25th fantasy series to get the ax in the last three years, thanks to Netflix’s seeming vendetta against the genre, and fantasy fans are starting to put their faith elsewhere.

The decision to cancel 1899 is sending shockwaves far beyond the show’s newly minted fanbase. It’s stirring up a fresh wave of outrage among fans of another recently-cancelled Netflix series, and the Warrior Nun fanbase has plenty of anger to go around. Netflix did the hugely popular show dirty in canceling it after only two seasons, despite its sky-high viewership numbers, and subscribers are starting to resent the streaming service.
