TV series of the 2023/24 season on Fox TV
The 2022/23 season proved to be extremely disappointing for Fox TV. The channel couldn’t secure any major hits. However, in the new television season of 2023/24, there are several shows that might become serious contenders for success.
Among the TV series that Fox TV is preparing for the new television season, the following shows stand out:
“Ruthless / Gaddar.” Starring Çağatay Ulusoy. Produced by Ay Yapım. The series will tell the story of a young man named Levent, who joins the army, leaving behind his beloved woman and family. He will find himself in an unexpected situation and transform into a ruthless person. Directed by Sinan Öztürk (Çukur, The Bad Penny). The script is written by Hürer Ebeoğlu. The famous singer Erkin Koray’s song “Ruthless” will also be used in the series. Interestingly, initially, producers negotiated with Aras Bulut İynemli for the role, but Çağatay eventually took on the part. It’s said that the show has a very strong script, reminiscent of the timeless story of Count of Monte Cristo and Ezel.
“Completely Different / Bambaşka Biri.” Starring Burak Deniz and Hande Erçel. Produced by TIMS&B. The series will premiere on September 11, a Monday. Written by Ethem Özışık and directed by Neslihan Yeşilyurt, it will tell the gripping story of a serial killer investigation. At the center of the plot is the story of prosecutor Leyla, who will be on the trail of the maniac. Burak Deniz will portray two different personalities on screen. One of them is the character of journalist and producer Kenan. On the other hand, he will also appear before the audience as Doğan – an eccentric and cold-blooded killer suffering from multiple psychopathic personality disorders. Interestingly, the series was initially called “Two Strangers,” but the creators had to change the title because it turned out that the rights to it belonged to another channel. Fans are eagerly awaiting the series, as the duo of Burak and Hande left a very positive impression six years ago with their work in the series “Love Knows No Words.”
“Red Buds / Kızıl Goncalar.” Starring Özgü Namal, Özcan Deniz, and Mert Yazıcıoğlu. Produced by Gold Film. Audiences are promised a family saga about love and family values.

So where do the paths of Levent and Meryem intersect in this life? They both carry a secret from the past. Turkish viewers love family stories, especially when their favorite actors are involved, so this could very well be one of the leaders of the television season.
