1899 may have been cancelled by Netflix but fans are refusing to give up on the sci-fi series. People are now begging other streaming services like Amazon Prime and Hulu to save the show so it could get the second and third seasons it deserved.

On Monday, January 2, co-showrunners Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese issued a statement confirming that 1899 will no longer be moving forward (via Instagram).

"With a heavy heart we have to tell you that 1899 will not be renewed," the statement read. "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. 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."

Not surprisingly, fans are not taking the news well. Several social media posts are expressing their anger towards Netflix for pulling the plug on 1899. While others are hoping that the streaming giant will change its mind and renew the series, some have decided that it's time for the show to move to a different service.

For now, it is unclear if 1899 will be picked up by a different streaming service that would allow the series to continue with its planned second and third seasons. However, fans are pushing for its renewal considering that Season 1 concluded on a cliffhanger that clearly indicated there is so much more to be shown.

1899 follows a group of European immigrants travelling from Southampton on a steamship named Kerberos with the intention to start new lives in New York City. However, things are not as they seem as the passengers discover something unexpected about the ship.
