1899 creators have confirmed that the popular Netflix series has been given the chop after one season.
The mysterious series starring Emily Beecham and Aneurin Barnard, follows a group of European migrants travelling from London on a steamship named Kerberos to start new lives in New York City.
But their odyssey takes an unexpected turn when they discover another migrant ship adrift on the open sea.
After that intriguing plot twist in episode eight, viewers were desperate for confirmation over a second series.
However, all hopes were immediately dashed after showrunners Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese confirmed that the show will not be returning for a second chapter.
‘With a heavy heart we have to tell you that 1899 will not be renewed,’ they penned on Instagram.
‘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.’
They continued: ‘That’s life. We know this will disappoint millions of fans out there. 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.’
The announcement didn’t sit well with devoted fans, with some of them hailing the shocking move as ‘the final f*****g straw.’
One fan begged: ‘PLEASE CAN ANY OTHER STREAMING PLATFORM PICK 1899 IM BEGGING.’
‘I’m so confused, wasn’t 1899 one of the most watched shows Netflix released last year? there was a lot of talk in online spaces too. what the hell does a show have to reach to get another season at Netflix?’ another added.
‘Still can’t believe Netflix cancelled 1899 specially after that cliffhanger i hate them so much why do they despise their best shows,’ a third person tweeted.
Actor Lucas Lynggaard Tønnesen, who plays Krester in the series, also confirmed the news on Twitter and said him and the rest of the cast are ‘devastated.’
‘As a lot of you may already know… 1899 will not be renewed for a 2nd and 3rd season… We are all truly devastated by this fact. This photo was taken the first night I met these people. You can take away the show, but you can’t take away family
‘Thank you all for watching x L.’
Netflix recently faced the wrath of the public after Mike Flanagan’s young adult horror series The Midnight Club was also cancelled.

However it did manage to break the Guinness World Record for ‘most scripted jump scares in a single television episode’, with an impressive 21 jump scares in the very first episode.
It also ended on a cliffhanger, with Flanagan previously saying that: ‘It was very much designed to continue.’
