Turkish actors who will be back in the new season
Every year with the beginning of the autumn-winter television season the stars who are eagerly awaited by viewers not only in their own country but also far beyond its borders return to Turkey’s screens. Whom will we see in the new autumn-winter season of 2019-2020? Here is a list of the most high-profile returns of the upcoming season.
After the unsuccessful show The Magnificent Century. Kesem / Muhteşem Yüzyıl: Kösem, Beren Saat left show business for almost four years, while remaining one of the most beloved stars of the Turkish screen. It is not surprising that her return has been waiting for a long time and with great impatience. The actress will return in a big way with the new fantasy series produced by OG Medya for Netflix Atiye / The Gift. The series will be released simultaneously in 190 countries of the world. There are also such big names as Mehmet Günsür, Metin Akdülger and Melisa Şenolsun in the cast of the series. The premiere of the first season is scheduled for December 2019, the second season will be released next year.
In the two years that have passed since the final of the historical series Wounded Love / Vatanim Sensin the audience has missed the sultan of the Turkish screen. Halit Ergenç during this time took part in several films, including becoming a guest star in the Egyptian film “Casablanca”. And now, according to very reliable sources, he is returning to television as Professor Irfan in the new series of Ay Yapim company Babylon / Babil. Director of the film is Uluç Bayraktar who is considered as one of the most talented directors in the action genre. Previously, he worked on such serials as Ezel, Karaday and Içerde.
Even the recent failures of the actor could not shake the special love of the Turkish and foreign public for Engin Akyürek. Recall that his series Until his death / Ölene Kadar was closed due to low ratings, and subsequent films did not enjoy great success. However, this could no longer affect the status of the actor as one of the brightest stars of Turkish show business, whose return is expected with particular excitement. Finally, we can please the fans: Engin is really returning, besides in the beloved genre of female drama. The actor has signed a contract with the television company O3 Medya to star on the TV series The ambassador’s daughter / Sefirin Kızı. The series will be released on Star TV channel in the new season. Ayşe Ferda Eryılmaz and Nehir Erdem known as the authors of the script for the first season of the series Lifeline / Sen Anlat Karadeniz became the screenwriters of the show.
At the present time Kenan İmirzalioğlu is the biggest star of the Turkish screen with the maximum number of super hits in his career. Even his latest failure – the series Mehmet: the Conqueror of the World / Mehmed: Bir Cihan Fatihi had ratings that many other actors can only dream of. Not surprisingly, the question of what kind of series Kenan will go to is of keen interest among the Turkish audience. So far, only one thing is known for sure – the actor is returning, but what producer has managed to convince the superstar to agree to work in his series is not yet known. Rumor has it that this can be either the producer of the company Ay Yapim Kerem Catay, or Netflix Internet platform.
Burak Özçivit received worldwide recognition after the release of the TV show Magnificent Century. Thereafter, he won the love of spectators with his work in the series Endless Love / Kara Sevda. Burak left the television for a long two years. And now, finally, his fans can breathe a sigh of relief: the actor returns. And it’s promised to be big comeback: he will appear before the viewer in the guise of a fearless warrior, the creator of the Ottoman Empire, Osman Gazi. Of course, for Burak this is a great chance to prove himself in the sequel of the most popular Turkish series of the last five years, the Resurrection Ertugrul / Diriliş Ertugrul. However, he takes a big risk: after all, the audience will compare Resurrection Osman / Diriliş Osman with Ertugrul.
Engin Altan Düzyatan
As many believed, after the completion of the five-year marathon on the TV series Resurrection Ertugrul / Diriliş: Ertuğrul Engin Altan Düzyatan will necessarily take a break for at least a year. However, when the producers of Most Production made him an offer to play a leading role in the new series Bullet / Kurşun, the actor could not refuse. This time he will continue to fight against the injustice of this world, but the plot will take place in the 70s of the last century. Whether the viewer can so quickly accept the new image of an actor is not yet known, but if the story is worth it, then the risk is fully justified and perhaps another great series starring the most talented actor is waiting for us.
The most successful young actor of Turkey is not going to return to Turkish television, preferring to work with the Netflix Internet platform. In the near future, viewers will see the follow-up of the adventures of Hakan: the protector of Istanbul. Recall that the Internet platform officially included the series Hakan: Muhafiz / The Protector among its greatest successes, presenting the results to investors. Çagatay, who has entered into an agreement with one of the most influential US actor agencies, UTA, clearly intends to continue his career in Hollywood. However, the actor is still not completely “lost” for the domestic market. Upon completion of filming of The Protector, he will begin shooting two Turkish films at once, which will be released next year.
The star of Sila, Ezel, Mom Cansu Dere is one of those actresses behind whom there is a huge line-up of producers. After all, success is the second name of Cansu. It is not surprising that a young woman carefully selects roles and can refuse a fabulous fee. While many expected her on TV8 channel, the owner of which proposed to pay the actress an incredible amount of 400 thousand Turkish lira per episode, she did not like the script provided by Medyapim company. As a result, the contract with the channel and television company was terminated. Currently, Cansu Dere is negotiating with several producers. In particular, she was offered to join the show Bullet / Kurşun. However, the actress has not given her consent yet.
After the rather modest results of the series, Bold and the Beautiful / Cesur Ve Güzel on the Turkish screens, Tuba Büyüküstün made a two-year break, taking up her personal life. However, in September, the 6-episode docudrama Ottoman Rising will appear on Netflix Internet platform, in which the actress played the role of the stepmother of the protagonist Mara Hatun. According to information from quite reliable sources, Tuba is currently negotiating with several companies, and she is likely to return to the screens in the autumn-winter season with a new show.
The unsuccessful shows of recent years did not affect the status of the Turkish screen superstar Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ, who remains a welcome candidate for the leading role for any major producer in Turkey. Note that this year was marked not only by the next failure of the actor in the series Crash / Çarpışma but also by the success in the Turkish box-office the movie Money Trap / Organize İşler 2: Sazan Sarmal, where Kıvanç played one of the leading roles. Currently, the actor chooses a production company for cooperation. According to preliminary information, he was made very attractive offers by TIMS & B producer Timur Savci and Netflix Internet platform.
After the success of the series Our Story / Bizim Hikaye, Burak Deniz’s career really started taking off. Not surprisingly, the young actor received a tempting offer to play in one of the most awaited series of the next season Boss / Patron. Dilan Çiçek Deniz, known from her previous work on Çukur series will be his partner. The exciting story of a mafia family may well be another big hit on the TV channel Show TV.
İlker Kaleli received the love of the audience after the series Poyraz Karayel. But the next Internet project of the actor TV series Bottom / Dip was extremely unfortunate. However, his fate may be changed this season after the release of the new series of the company O3 Medya Alien / Yabanci. The director and screenwriter of the project previously worked on the popular TV series Evermore / Istanbullu Gelin. Besides, in the fall, Ilker will appear in a small role in the BBC TV series The Serpent, the rights to which were acquired by Netflix Internet platform.
In recent years, the career of Tolgahan Sayışman did not shine with super hits. However, his name remains known and sought after by producers. Already in September, Tolgahan will return to the Turkish screens with the new TV series of TRT1 TV channel Champion / Şampiyon. It is hard to say whether the project will become a big hit, but given that the state channel is not canceling its shows halfway through, fans can be sure that they will have a full season with their favorite actor.
Despite the fact that Serkan Çayoğlu’s latest series were not big hits, he managed to win the love and respect of the Turkish audience with his undoubted talent. The series Ring / Halka has not yet been completed, but its producer ES Film has already made a tempting offer to Serkan to play in its new project – a remake of the popular Indian TV series How I can call this love? / Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon?. According to rumors, Serkan has already given his consent, so that in the fall we will see him in the role of a cold businessman, whose heart will be softened by a beautiful perky girl.
