The name of the project, which keeps the legend of Sultan Süleyman, which has spread all over the world, as a TV series, is Muhteşem Yüzyıl (Magnificent Century). The Muhteşem Yüzyıl series, which started on January 5, 2011 and completed on June 11, 2014, went through the history of Turkish TV series with golden letters.
Muhteşem Yüzyıl is at the forefront of the most special Turkish TV series that have spread all over the world and once again put the name of Sultan Süleyman in mind. From the script, to the music, to the general concept, to the cast and to the enormous impact it created, it must be said that it is a project that befits the name “Süleyman the Magnificent”.
However, after such a great and glorious TV series, no one had tried to make a new TV series about the period of Süleyman the Magnificent. Muhteşem Yüzyıl was the pinnacle of this business and it would not be possible to do a job under it…
Here comes the step that disrupts this situation… The public broadcaster decided to completely change the Barbaroslar series, which did not receive enough attention in its first season. The Barbaroslar series will now turn into a series about the period of Süleyman the Magnificent.
Of course, there is Hızır again in the lead role, so you will watch a period of “Süleyman the Magnificent”, which will be told through the character of Barbaros Hayreddin Pasha.
The renewed version of the Barbaroslar series, in which names such as Engin Altan Düzyatan, Pelin Akil and Caner Topçu were separated, is not expected to look like the old one.
While there is a preparation period in which it is not clear whether even Ulaş Tuna Astepe will take the lead role, both the work on the scenario has intensified and the preliminary preparations are continuing.
The fact that the series, which was entrusted to a very successful director like Zülküf Yücel, will tell about the period of Sultan Süleyman, will also result in comparison with the Muhteşem Yüzyıl series.
TRT1 is determined and aims to spread Barbaros Hayreddin Pasha to the whole world. This goal was not realized in the first season, but the claim is still great in the second season.
