10 new Turkish TV series coming in Fall 2019
We hoped to see them again on the screens for many years. We wondered who would become the co-stars of our favorite actors. The wait is finally over. What Turkish producers have prepared for us for the new television season 2019-2020?
The summer television season in Turkey has come to an end, and we are on the verge of returning old favorite projects, as well as the appearance of newcomers. They will fight for a place under the sun in the harsh rating battle that unfolds every year in the fall-winter season. Not all the presented projects will be able to win the love of a capricious Turkish audience, and they will have to try hard to survive. What series of the season 2019-2020 are the most interesting?
Champion / Şampiyon
The series of the state television channel TRT1 starring Tolgahan Sayışman. The project will air on Thursday, September 12. A sports drama about a former boxer who is returning to the ring in order to save the life of his young son could well attract both male and female audiences. Given the restrictions imposed by the state-owned channel, the show can be watched by the whole family without fear that children will see things that are inappropriate for their age on the screen. In addition, state funding gives hope that the series will not be canceled after several episodes due to low ratings, as is often the case in Turkish show business.
North Star / Kuzey Yildizi
The premiere of the series on Show TV is scheduled for Saturday, September 14th. The creators of the project are famous for their “rural” comedies. They were the ones who were doing the great comedy series “New Daughter-in-Law.” This time, we are waiting for the adventures of the unfortunate businessman Kuzey (İsmail Demirci), who is forced to return to his native village with his daughters. Alas, the former compatriots prepared him not a very warm welcome. Especially the return of the former groom is bothering Yildiz (Aslıhan Güner). Once he left her for the sake of urban beauty, and now she will make his life in his own household not sweet at all.
Love makes you cry / Aşk Ağlatır
The premiere of the series will take place on Sunday, September 8 on the Show TV channel. A remake of the Korean drama from MF Yapim TV company starring Deniz Can Aktaş and Hafsanur Sancaktutan does not inspire much hope, however, in Turkish show business you can never predict which project will turn out to be successful. Sometimes the “dark horses” become super hits. Perhaps one more success awaits us, but perhaps a failure. The story of two young people who found themselves in a big metropolis. They are trying to find their place in life, contrary to the traditions and difficulties that stand in their way. Perhaps the Turkish audience will be interested in this story.
Miraculous Doctor / Mucize Doktor
One of the most promising projects of the new season starts on Thursday, September 12 on Fox TV. Among the main advantages of the project is a strong story based on the Korean drama. We remind you that a very successful American remake has already been made, and now, Turkish filmmakers may repeat the success. The cast of the project also attracts attention: Taner Ölmez, Onur Tuna, Reha Özcan are real professionals. The story of the talented Dr. Ali, who suffers from Savant Syndrome, can be a real surprise for this season. How the Turkish viewer will react to the series, whose protagonist has mental problems is not yet clear. It can be a big hit, or it can be a failure.
Child / Çocuk
On Monday, September 9, Star TV will present its new project with a very classic story to the audience. The plot focuses on the fate of baby Efe, whom his mother (Merve Çagiran) gave to the foster family to provide him with a better future. The daughter-in-law of a wealthy family (Ceyda Ateş) promised to take care of the baby, but everything changed when she gave birth to a son. But her mother-in-law has her own big secret: Efe is actually her own grandson, and she will do everything she can for the boy. Whether this series will survive the battle with the old time-tested projects of Turkish air Cruel Istanbul, Forbidden Fruit, Reunion and Çukur we will know very soon.
Ambassador’s daughter / Sefirin Kizi
One of the most anticipated projects of the fall television season is the production of the well-known company O3 Medya and the Star TV channel. Filming of the series will begin on September 15. The project is scheduled for broadcast in late October – early November. Starring Engin Akyürek and Neslihan Atagül. The return of Engin is eagerly awaited not only in Turkey, but also far beyond its borders. Neslihan is one of the most promising actresses of the young generation, who won an army of fans after successful work in the series Endless Love. This is the story of a rich and influential man Sancar Efeoglu, who will meet on his way the daughter of the Turkish ambassador to one of foreign countries. The names of the scriptwriters of the series are Aisha Ferda Eriylmaz and Sedef Nehir Erdem. They also wrote the first season of the famous hit Sen Anlat Karadeniz. So we will wait for the good and quality show.
Bullet / Kurşun
One of the main “trump cards” of the Fox TV channel, the shooting of which will start in mid-September. Engin Altan Düzyatan who is the one of the leading actors of the Turkish screen and Burçin Terzioğlu, who had just completed work on the Netflix series The Protector will star in the series. The screenwriter is Kerem Deren. He is well known to viewers on the hit Ezel. Engin Altan Düzyatan will play the prosecutor who puts criminals in prison using all legal means. And at night he turns into the head of a criminal gang that deals with those criminals who cannot be dealt with legally. The classic story of the vigilante, seasoned with a strong script and great actors, could be the biggest hit of the season.
This is one of the most anticipated returns of recent seasons: Murat Yıldırım is again on the screens of Turkey with a criminal drama. Moreover, a brilliant beauty Esra Bilgiç who won the hearts of millions after successful work in the TV series Resurrection Ertugrul will co-star with him. The plot features are still kept in the strictest confidence, but it is already known that this will be an action-style crime drama, a bit like the famous Çukur series. The project of the Show TV channel is being prepared by BKM TV company. There is some doubt about the screenwriter of the series Yilmaz Sahin, who turned out to be an extremely unfortunate choice for Timur Savci in the previous series The Magnificent Century. Kesem. We hope that he will succeed in contemporary story better than the historical plot.
Ferhat and Shirin / Ferhat İle Şirin
There is classic story of eternal love in each Turkish television season. This time such story is being prepared by O3 Medya for Fox TV channel. The preliminary release date for the project is November of this year. Tolga Sarıtaş and Leyla Tanlar will be the tragic lovers on the screens, the Turkish version of Romeo and Juliet. Alas, their fate will surely be as tragic as the legendary couple from Verona. After all, the plot is based on a beautiful legend of love, that ended in the death of lovers. But before that, we will have to seriously worry about the ratings of our favorite series.
The television channel D has not been very happy with the audience lately, but its management does not give up. For the new season, it prepared a surprise: a very interesting couple – Hande Erçel and Bugra Gulsoy, who will star in the new series Azize. The project is being prepared by Süreç Film.
However, if you think that the surprises are over, you are very mistaken. As always, to be continued!
