The lower-than-expected ratings Kösem is
receiving continues to trouble the production. There are several speculations
about the show each day and the question if Kösem will or will not get a second
season comes up every time.
Based on the information from a solid source,
Magnificent Century Kösem finishes its journey on Star TV this June. However,
TIMS production wishes to continue the tradition with the story of Murad the
4th... This possibility of a story about Murad the 4th had long been a
speculation but now at least the plans about the project is confirmed.
Another question is Beren Saat’s presence in
this upcoming project. The production company’s casting decision about Murad
the 4th will also naturally decide the presence of Kösem (and therefore the
actress to play her) depending on the time era that will be portrayed. There
are a couple of names we heard spoken of but since there are no official
statements yet, we choose to remain silent as well.
Therefore, at this point, the only official
information regarding Kösem is that “Magnificent Century Kösem: Origins” will
finish its short journey on television this June. It is of course only natural
that if there ever is a possibility of a sequel, then Star TV will be on board
as the broadcasting company. We are going to have to wait a while longer to
find out how/if (and of course, when) the project will ever come to life.
