What is Rise of Empires: Ottoman about?
Rise of Empires: Ottoman takes the audience back to 1453, the time that determines the course of history. It is about the Ottoman Empire and Mehmed the Conqueror and tells the story of the fall of Constantinople. Ottoman Sultan Mehmed II organizes an epic expedition to conquer Constantinople, the capital of Eastern Rome. On the other hand, the series helps us understand how Mehmed II manages his decisions and actions in the 14th century. He was one of the youngest conquerors of the Ottoman Empires. The story of a historical character who possesses power and intelligence at such a young age impresses the audience.
The lead of the series is Cem Yiğit Üzümoğlu, who is also in the cast of Hakan: The Protector of another Turkish Netflix TV series. The narrative parts of the series were performed by Charles Dance, who played the character of Tywin Lannister in the Game of Thrones series. As the series ran, I received support from history professors such as Prof. Celal engor and Dr. Emrah Safa Gürkan.
The mini-documentaries were highly appreciated by the public, we can understand that by looking at the IMDB score (grade: 8.0).
Will there be a season 2 of Rise of Empires: Ottoman?
The mini-documentaries have so far not been renewed for a season 2 by Netflix. Let’s look at the possibilities until we get some news from the series’ official broadcasters. The Ottoman Empire is one of the empires with the largest lands in history and has a solid past.
Many important historical events took place with the fall of Constantinople, which is considered the beginning of a new era (early modern period). The number of documentaries in the form of fiction with this subject is quite low. For these reasons, Netflix will want to continue this documentary, which has been accepted by the public.
In addition, in the finale of the 1st season of the mini-docuseries, we can interpret the dialogue of Mara and Mehmed.
Mara: My son, the Red Apple is yours. It’s the price of your new empire.
mehmed: And so… we start.
Therefore, we can say that the second season of Rise of Empires: Ottoman will be released in the future.
