Dizi Roundup: Mon, Feb 20 – Fri, Feb 23


As a result of the devasting earthquakes in Türkiye, there has been an increased level of uncertainty in the dizi industry in the past couple of weeks, with the channels taking each other's lead in determining if they should air new episodes of their shows or not. The week of Feb. 20 has particularly been nuts, with some channels announcing new episodes and then pulling the plug at the very last minute. 

Here's a quick rundown of everything you may have missed in diziland this week:

Monday, Feb 20

Kanal D announced its new series "Veda Mektubu" will premiere on Monday, Feb 27!

FOX finally announced Wednesday, March 1, 2023 as the premiere date for "Adım Farah," its highly-anticipated "The Cleaning Lady" remake, starring Demet Özdemir and Engin Akyürek.

Star TV announced a new episode of Ömer will air, as did FOX with Yasak Elma, and ATV with Bir Küçük Gün Isigi. Seeing as all of its Monday night competitors were set to air, TRT1, which had previously, reportedly, not planned to air any shows for a while, announced a brand new episode of Alparslan: Büyük Selçuklu will air just moments before 20:00 Turkish time. Just as primetime came along, another earthquake shook Türkiye's southern province of Hatay, and with that, the planned episodes of Ömer, Yasak Elma, and Alparslan: Büyük Selçuklu were canceled. Bir Küçük Gün Isigi on the other hand, was already on air, so ATV proceeded with airing the series' 22nd episode.
