1899 has just arrived on Netflix and the series follows a group of migrants travelling from London to New York. Maura Franklin (played by Emily Beecham) went in search of her missing brother, who she believed was on board the Prometheus. The end of the series featured a surprising revelation about the Prometheus and fans are keen to know more about the show’s future.

Will there be a season 2 of 1899?

As the series progresses, viewers learn how the ship the passengers are on is not real, and it is instead part of a fabricated illusion.

Maura’s father was obsessed with the idea that people view reality differently and he was experimenting on their minds.

Towards the end of the series, it was revealed the mysterious man and boy Maura had come to meet were her husband and son- Daniel (Aneurin Barnard) and Elliot (Fflyn Edwards).

In the series finale, it came to light that the simulation had been created by Maura and Daniel, in order to keep their dying son alive forever.

When Maura looked out of the window after waking up, she could see they were in space, on board a spaceship.

Project Prometheus had been taking place in the year 2099 and Maura’s brother Ciaran then wrote a message, saying: “Hello sister, welcome to reality.”

Creators Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar said there could be a second season, but it may not be for a while.

Jantje told Deadline Hollywood how they are trying their best to make it a multi-season show.

She did say it depends on the viewership ratings, with Netflix having the final say.

Some viewers have been left confused and infuriated by the conclusion, which raises even more questions.

Lucian actor Jonas Bloquet spoke out in Making 1899 about season two, saying: “Even with us actors we want to ask questions about season two for our characters.

“They were like ‘No, you do season one and then you’ll see.”

Daniel actor Aneurin Barnard added: “When you go into a scene and you have got 100 questions for Bo and he goes ‘Well I haven’t made that choice yet’.

“‘I don’t know if I want this character to go down that road or that one yet, so let’s see where we take it’.

“That is the interesting thing about it, in that moment you have to make a natural choice of the circumstances and play the honesty of the moment, regardless of where it’s going next.”

On the last day of production in London, Baran bo Odar said: “I will definitely fall into a hole at the end of this shoot.

“No one sees me behind my monitors and my tent, but I do live the characters as well and I do even act in front of the monitors.

“No one sees that, just to try and understand what that character could do or not.

“I really live these characters and it’s sad to say goodbye to them, but maybe hopefully we will say hello again to them in another season.”

Netflix will assess the viewership ratings before making a decision on whether to renew the series.

The show is already at number two in the streaming platform’s top 10, overtaking the final season of Dead to Me.

This means fans can remain hopeful that more answers to Project Prometheus will come to light in season two.

Hopefully, they will meet Maura’s brother Ciaran, who was managing the project the whole time.

1899 is on Netflix now.
