Netflix Turkey shared the first frames of the series and movies that are preparing to meet the audience in the upcoming period. A very colorful watch list awaits the audience in the coming months, from Created inspired by Frankenstein by Çağan Irmak to the modern adaptation of Atıf Yılmaz’s Aaahh Belinda.
Netflix, which has left its sixth year behind in Turkey, recently introduced the contents of Netflix Turkey that will meet with the audience in the coming days. This journey, which started with Hakan: The Guardian, the first Netflix original series shot in Turkey in 2018, continued a year later with the second Netflix Turkey series Atiye. The Turkish leg of the channel continued to gain momentum with more than 30 productions such as Ethos, Midnight at Pera Palas and The Club.
It seems that this also triggers the competition between digital broadcasting platforms in the Turkish market. Having made a rapid entry into the Turkish market last summer, Disney Plus’ original series Atatürk, which is planning to broadcast on the 100th anniversary of the Republic, is another exciting example of local stories preparing to meet international audiences.
Among the works that Netflix Turkey plans to introduce to the audience in the coming weeks are Cem Yılmaz’s new drama-comedy film One Night with Ayzek and Last Call for Istanbul starring Beren Saat and Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ, one of the most admired duos in Turkish television history.
