1899 S1 E5 00 08 31 01 568x320 - Fans Are Calling The Number 1 Horror Series On Netflix  "Easily one of the best"

A cerebral and twisted new Netflix original series is burning up the charts this week, and I’m thrilled to see it. Sitting pretty at number 2 on the official Netflix Top 10 TV charts is 1899, a new show from the creators of the highly acclaimed series Dark.

Creators Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese now return with another mind-melting show, 1899, that’s taking the Internet by storm. Fans worldwide are losing it over the bizarre mysteries unfolding in the new project.

The new series follows “immigrants on a steamship traveling from London to New York [who] get caught up in a mysterious riddle after finding a second vessel adrift on the open sea.

Odar and Friese took a different turn with the show, crafting a slow-burning and completely original period piece set at sea. Trust us, this is not something any horror fan will want to miss out on.

Check out what Netflix viewers are saying about 1899 below. But before you see what others are saying, make sure you take a peek at the official trailer so you have a sense of what kind of madness you’re dealing with:
