‘Fatma’ is a Turkish thriller drama that follows a desperate woman’s journey from being a victim to a vengeful killer. The character exploration of the protagonist, who makes for an unlikely and interesting assassin, has resulted in the show being deemed “groundbreaking” by critics, with Burcu Biricik’s lead performance receiving high praise. With season 1 coming out in April 2021, the highly binge-able show already has fans clamoring for more, so we decided to dig around to figure out when we might get to see another season. Here’s everything we know about ‘Fatma’ season 2.
Fatma Season 2 Release Date
‘Fatma’ season 1 premiered in its entirety on April 27, 2021, on Netflix. The relatively short season comprises 6 episodes of roughly 40 minutes each.
As far as another season is concerned, here’s everything we know. So far, no official announcement has been made regarding the renewal of the series for another season. Moreover, the first season manages to masterfully tie up most of the major plot points of the complex narrative within its run of six episodes. Although it has not been billed as a limited series, the ending indicates that it is unlikely that ‘Fatma’ season 2 will get made.
However, if the show garners a great response from the viewers and the creator Ozgur Onurme manages to churn up a compelling enough story to continue the series, the streaming giant might recommission the show for a second season. After all, the finale episode does leave the protagonist’s fate up in the air, which can be used to further explore the show’s narrative beyond the first season. In case the series does return for another season, we expect it to premiere sometime in or after late 2022 or early 2023.
Fatma Season 2 Cast: Who can be in it?
The first season of ‘Fatma’ features Burcu Biricik as the show’s namesake, a desperate woman living in Istanbul. Ferit Kaya plays her missing husband Zafer and Mustafa Konak, her son Oguz (who is on the autism spectrum) — both rarely seen but nonetheless important characters. Zafer’s other criminal associates who torment Fatma are Bayram (Mehmet Yilmaz Ak), Yusuf (Cagdas Onur Ozturk), Sevket (Kubilay Tunçer) and Ekber (Burhan Öçal).
Finishing up Fatma’s circle of acquaintances are her childhood friend Ismail (Deniz Sen Hamzaoglu) and his wife Kadriye (Gulcin Kultur Sahin), her sister Mine (Hazal Türesan), the police chief (Sehsuvar Aktas), and the author (Ugur Yücel) who Fatma works for. If renewed for a season 2, we can expect the cast to significantly change as Fatma, over the course of season 1, has killed off many of Zafer’s criminal associates, leaving only Bayram alive but imprisoned. Hence, there is a small chance we might see Mehmet Yilmaz Ak reprise his role to exact revenge on Fatma and her sister.
In season 2, we will not see Gulcin Kultur Sahin and Deniz Sen Hamzaoglu return to the show as their characters are also killed off by the protagonist. However, if there’s one cast member we can be sure to see in a follow-up season, it is Burcu Biricik as the unstoppable Fatma. Seeing as how the first season is wrapped up, we might also see a further exploration of Fatma’s relationship with her sister Mine, paving the way for Hazal Türesan to come back for season 2.
Fatma Season 2 Plot: What can it be About?
Season 1 sees the namesake protagonist on the hunt for her missing husband while trying to avenge the death of her son, Oguz, who lived with autism. Fatma is faced with an oppressive society and patriarchal characters that torment and use her, against which she eventually lashes out with brutal and morbid outcomes. The ending of the first season ties up all the major plot points, with Fatma confronting her selfish husband and coming to (tragic) terms with the loss of her son. We also see her manage to take revenge on the family she blames for the Oguz’s death and kill off many of the people who have wronged her.
If season 2 does come out, it will most likely focus on the one remaining tormentor, Bayram, who is arrested for a minor crime near the end of the first season. Fatma also gets her husband Zafer arrested, and we might see both Bayram and Zafer return for revenge in the follow-up season. Fatma’s fate, which is left unclear after she jumps off a building in the season 1 finale, as well as all the incriminating evidence connecting her to multiple murders, are also subjects that will most likely be explored if ‘Fatma’ season 2 is made.
