The Destan (Epic) series, which was broadcast on ATV screens and starring Ebru Şahin, Edip Tepeli and Selim Bayraktar, followed a successful process in its first season. The series, which did not lose the first place in the rating lists for a long time, managed to catch a loyal audience, even though the ratings of the series dropped.
Destan series, which tells a fictional story belonging to the pre-Islamic period of the Turks, lost the first place to the series Üç Kız Kardeş (Three Sisters), but it won the right to continue the second season by getting out of the tough struggle throughout the season.
All actors sweated throughout the season for the series, which was prepared with great care, from costumes to venues, from spoken language to action scenes. Ebru Şahin, who won great acclaim with the Hercai series, gave another test with the Destan series.
The successful actress became the prominent name with Akkız in the series whose story is based on a female character. Ebru Şahin trained for the role for months and worked hard on many subjects such as close combat, horse riding, and using a sword.
Ebru Şahin, who is also associated with Edip Tepeli as a screen partner, successfully gave life to Akkız, a different character on the screen. The departure of Selim Bayraktar, who played the leading role in the season finale of the series, was a development that upset everyone. Before this unexpected separation, there was a statement that he was tired of Selim Bayraktar.
Selim Bayraktar stated that he was tired during the season, but did not mention the separation issue. Nobody expected Bayraktar to leave the series. However, it is understood that the conflict in the story is planned to make innovations by calculating the loss of ratings for the next season.
Although the character of Batuga is an important character for the series, there will be a conflict between two strong characters in the story! A very strong Alpagu character was formed against Akkız and Batuga, and in this power struggle Akkız began to be overshadowed. The falling back of Akkız, the main heroine of the story, was not a situation to be taken into consideration, especially for the series that Ebru Şahin fans showed great interest!
The departure of Selim Bayraktar from the epic series and the removal of the character of Batuga from the story are actually seen as a strategic situation. Because now, a new story will be created in the new season as Akkız and Batuga, the strongest character and the main gripping characters of the story. In the second season, which will be built on these two, it is aimed to increase the viewing rates.
