Netflix officially extended The Protector
On December 14, 2018, the first Turkish-American series on the Netflix streaming platform “The Protector” with Çağatay Ulusoy, Hazar Ergüçlü, Ayça Ayşin Turan, Okan Yalabık, Mehmet Kurtuluş and Yurdaer Okur in the main roles simultaneously was launched in 190 countries. The series immediately attracted the attention of an international audience, becoming one of the most popular projects of Netflix.
Netflix management, who was counting on success in advance, ordered the second season of the series, not waiting for the release of the first season, and was not mistaken: The Protector became an event in the television world. We remind you that in the second season, which will be released this year, Engin Öztürk, Boran Kuzum, Saygın Soysal, and Burçin Terzioğlu will join the team.
Impressed by the results of the first season show, Netflix’s management made an unprecedented decision. The series is extended by two seasons at once, without waiting for the results of the second season. This was officially announced by Netflix vice president for international projects, Kelly Luegenbiehl. She said that the company’s management was extremely pleased with the audience’s reaction to the first season of the series and there were even more exciting adventures ahead of them. She will be glad to work again with such talented people. The focus of the story will continue to be in Istanbul.
Filming of the two seasons will start as soon as possible. The release of the third and fourth seasons is expected in 2020. Recall that the second season has already been shot and will be available to Netflix viewers this year. Recently, however, there were testimonies of eyewitnesses who were present at the shooting of the Protector that takes place right now. It seems that Netflix’s management decided not to release 8 episodes in the second season as previously expected, but to make two more episodes for the ten-episode season. Like it or not, we will know very soon. Also, they promise a few very famous actors in the third season of the series. In the near future, the cast of the new seasons will be announced and perhaps we will have many pleasant surprises.
