Lots happening with Cagatay!

On the eve of Cagatay’s birthday on September 23, Ranini broke the news the Cagatay has signed on with OGM Pictures for a new series titled Yali Capkini (“The Kingfisher”). It is inspired by a true story and written by Kemal Hamamcioglu. There are rumors that it is being prepared for channel tv8, but we do not have confirmation from the channel yet. His co-star is also yet to be announced. 

In the past, Cagatay’s name has been involved with Marasli (Burak Deniz played the lead) and Barbaroslar (Engin Altan Duzyatan is playing the lead), but eventually did not come to fruition. Both the actual eventual leads are Cagatay’s co-stars from Medcezir and Anadolu Kartallari, respectively. 

If this proposed project does happen, this will be Cagatay’s return to a dizi on public tv since his turn as Sarp Yilmaz in Icerde, 2016-2017. In September 2020, he had a cameo in Menajerimi Ara, an Ay Yapim production being directed by Ali Bilgin, who also directed Cagatay in Medcezir and Delibal

Successful Birthday Fundraiser!

With donors from more than 10 countries, Cagatay Ulusoy North America co-ordinated fundraiser for Cagatay’s 31st birthday on September 23 was very successful. With several hundred dollars sent to various childhood cancer organizations around the globe, the fans showed their love for Cagatay by standing next to the kids in need. Many donors sent a birthday message his way and we compiled them into a video.

Spotted With Friends

On September 28th, Cagatay’s friend Umut Kisa shared this photo via Instagram story.

They are out for the night. From left to right are Mustafa Mert Koc, Umut Kisa, Cagatay Ulusoy, Mali Simsek and Engin Aykanat.

He was also sighted in a chance meeting with actor Halit Ergenc, where Cagatay made a hasty exit without answering any reporter questions. Halit was asked about Cagatay later and he said:

Last week, Cagatay’s friend Mustafa Mert Koc posted a short video of the two guys playing a casual game of basketball. One cannot see Cagatay very clearly, but fans can make out his basketball prowess!

Yesilcam Is Back!

Earlier this week, fans received the happy news that Season 2 of Yesilcam will drop on BluTV on Thursday, October 28. It will release the first five episodes that day, presumably with the remaining five coming once a week. The trailer looks amazing, as the cast leaps forward in time to 1969 into the 70s, with new challenges for them to overcome. Will Semih Ates remain the hero figure we came to love in Season 1?

The filming for Season 2 concluded in the early summer and fans had been anxiously waiting. On a post on instagram where Cagatay shared the trailer on his profile, director Cagan Irmak had some wonderful things to say about Cagatay and his craft.

This young man is truly an icon in so many ways and we are proud to be supporting his journey. We will resume our series/ episode reviews once Yesilcam starts streaming. Until then, enjoy!

In an unexpected announcement, Netflix released the trailer for Season 4 of The Protector, that shares July 9th as the drop date for the fourth and final season of the series. To our knowledge, Cagatay and team completed filming for Seasons 3 and 4 in September of 2019, which established the expectation that, much like Seasons 1 and 2, these two seasons will be released within months of each other. Season 3 hit the platform on March 7th.

From the trailers, it looks as though Hakan Muhafiz is setting up for an epic battle with the Immortals, who have taken over Istanbul in the present, with plans to take out the problem at its roots, back in time.

We see Hakan in the physique of Harun, his ancestor, as the last scene in the previous season show Hakan appearing out of the water as Harun, set in 1459 Istanbul/ Ottoman Empire. The surprise twist was the loving relationship he is shown to have with the Vizir.

Several characters who play the Immortals, and have been killed in prior seasons, make a reappearance this season, both in the present time and in the historical past. With elaborate costume and set designs evident in the trailer, it promises to be an incredible visual treat as the story comes to its final conclusion.

Will the installment be able to resolve all the loose threads in a satisfactory fashion? Will Hakan and Zeynep be able to live their promised love story? Or will the Vizir triumph over the efforts of Hakan and his Loyal Ones? Much awaits us in this final installment of a series that has proven to be a surprise hit for Netflix, cementing a promising path for future productions of Turkish originals.
