Many Turkish TV series broadcast on Netflix in recent years has been receiving good reviews. Another project of Netflix Turkey, which was acclaimed with successful productions such as Love 101 and Rise of Empires: Ottoman, was Ethos. Written and directed by Berkun Oya, the series was on the screens in November 2020 with its first season. Created by Krek Film, the series included eight episodes in the first season. Fans are excited for the second season of the series. So has Netflix renewed the series for a second season? When will it be released?
What is the plotline of Ethos?
“Their lives are different, their dreams are different, their fears are different. Even if they seem opposite to each other, when their paths cross, the borders will disappear and they will all touch each other’s lives.”
Ethos is about people who have different social lives and economic situations. The audience witnesses a group of people with different lives touching each other’s destinies. It is a series with a motif of fate. In the series, it is possible to observe that the house where people are born shapes the fate of the individual. It is a series that is far from the usual series flow and much closer to daily life with a cast successfully. The series stars Öykü Karayel and Fatih Artman. The narrative opens with the fainting of Meryem, who was act out by Öykü Karayel, in the house where she was a daily worker.
And the story goes back to a year ago. Meryem’s journey reaches the modestly furnished psychiatric clinic of a public hospital in the “middle” of the city. This is the clique of Peri, who studied abroad, the daughter of the “White Turk” family, portrayed by Defne Kayalar. As a result of her upbringing, she approaches Meryem with prejudice that goes beyond the limits of the patient-doctor relationship. Peri realizes that this is a problematic approach and seeks a solution in a nicely decorated psychologist’s office belonging to her friend.
The Netflix series Ethos attracted audiences with the images used in the closing credits of the episodes along with many other features. In one of the generics of the series, there are sections from Maurice Pialat’s short film Bosphore, one of the most important directors of French cinema. And the other name that appears again and again in the closing credits is Ferdi Özbeğen, who sings Turkish lyrics written on foreign compositions with his style that brings together western and eastern music elements. The name of the series is referred to as Ethos, which means “the common tendency of a society shaped by its ethic values”.
Will there be a second season of Ethos?
Netflix or Krek has not yet renewed the series for a second season. When we examine the Turkish media, we cannot see shooting news about the new season either. News from Netflix on this subject is eagerly awaited. It is stated that the series Ethos was planned as a one-season series at the first stage.
However, after millions of people welcomed the series, rumors began to be made that the second season could be released. However, there is no official announcement regarding the second season until now. Details about when the second season of the series will be broadcast will become clear after Netflix management’s evaluation. If the series gets renewal for a new season, the average production time can be considered one year, and we can see a new season end of 2021.
