The finale of The Pit / Çukur series and the beginning of a new story
The four-year story of Yamaç Koçovali and the criminal district named Çukur is over. However, the creators of the project have already promised us a sequel with the same team. What do we know about Ay Yapim’s new project right now?
On Monday, June 7, the thrilling adventures of the Koçovali family in one of the most criminal areas of Istanbul, Çukur came to an end. The creators of the series said goodbye to the audience as kings, taking first place in the ratings. It is not surprising that the hashtag with the name of the legendary series topped the global Twitter trends.
In turn, the creators of Çukur presented their viewers with two surprises at once. The first was a gala concert with the participation of the stars of the series, which has already become a tradition for Ay Yapim’s hits. The second is the official announcement of a new project. A criminal story with an old team awaits us again. According to the producers: “We left the Insider / Içerde, we got to The Pit / Çukur, 3 kurus / Üç Kuruş is the next stop”.
The new series, like its predecessors, will air on Show TV on Monday, and will feature many of the actors who previously worked on Içerde and Çukur. The writing team and director are rumored to remain the same. So far, we almost certainly know that Taner Olmez will be playing one of the three main roles in the series. The names of the other two stars are kept secret for the time being, but they promise it will be a real bomb.
Of course, the Turkish press immediately began to speculate, figuring out which of the stars would take part in the project. Allegedly, Çağatay Ulusoy politely declined an offer from Ay Yapim, as he has projects planned for 2 years in advance. Kenan İmirzalıoğlu will appear on television this season, but not in this TV show. It is rumored that Aras Bulut İynemli gave his consent. Also, the names of Murat Yıldırım, Uraz Kaygılaroğlu and Sarp Akkaya are mentioned.
However, for the time being, the Turkish media should not be trusted. Traditionally, they add superstars to all major projects, regardless of whether they negotiated to star in them or not. The participation of Aras Bulut İynemli in the series is unlikely.
