Created by Cem Yilmaz, ‘The Life and Movies of Erşan Kuneri’ or ‘Ersan Kuneri’ is a Turkish comedy series that revolves around the titular character. In the 70s and 80s, Erşan is a well-known face in the erotic film industry. However, when he takes a step back and looks at his legacy, he decides to expand his horizons. As Erşan starts working in different genres, from science-fiction to historical pieces, his life takes him on a hilarious and unprecedented journey.
The show has been received warmly by the audience thanks to its intriguing premise and talented actors. The bold subject of the series has also earned it major appreciation points. After binge-watching the first season, the audience is eager for more. If you are wondering whether or not the series will continue, here’s all you need to know about the prospective season 2!
The Life and Movies of Erşan Kuneri Season 2 Release Date
‘The Life and Movies of Erşan Kuneri’ season 1 released on May 13, 2022, on Netflix. All eight episodes of the first installment – each with a runtime of 38-56 minutes – landed on the same day.
With regard to season 2, here is what you need to know. Although fans cannot wait to see what happens next in Erşan’s life, the fact is that the show has not yet been renewed for another round. The series attracts viewers with its exaggerated and sometimes dark sense of humor that you cannot help but chuckle at. Additionally, it pokes fun at every genre of film and TV show under the sun and parodies their clichés. Therefore, it seems like there is a little something for everyone.
Moreover, Netflix is likely to be interested in continuing the series, given that it is the only other comedy-drama show on the platform other than ‘Love 101.’ After all, the streaming giant is focusing on expanding its video library by including films and TV shows from different parts of the world. So, if the show hits all the checkpoints required for renewal, it might be greenlit by the end of Summer 2022. If that happens, we expect ‘The Life and Movies of Erşan Kuneri’ season 2 to release sometime in Q2 2023.
The Life and Movies of Erşan Kuneri Season 2 Cast: Who can be in it?
If the show returns for another season, Cem Yilmaz will hopefully come back to portray Erşan Kuneri. Zafer Algöz and Ezgi Mola may also reprise their roles as Muammer Rado and Alev Alev, respectively. Moreover, Çaglar Çorumlu might come back in the potential season 2 as Altin Oran, along with Uraz Kaygilaroglu, who portrays Ibrahim Tumtum.
Other notable actors who we may see in the potential sophomore iteration are Nilperi Sahinkaya (Seyyal Par), Merve Dizdar (Feride Orhun), Bülent Sakrak (Ayhun Usuk), and Can Yilmaz (Eryetis). In case new characters are introduced in the storyline, there may be some new additions to the cast, provided there is a round 2.
The Life and Movies of Erşan Kuneri Season 2 Plot: What can it be About?
Season 1 shows the turmoil that Erşan faces due to his desire to remold his career. After financial troubles, several trials, and failed attempts, the season finale brings respite in his life. The majority of the episode revolves around the melodrama film titled ‘Doyamadim’ that Erşan appears in. The movie is a hit amongst the audience, and the actor celebrates with his friends and fellow artists. Thanks to his performance, he is even invited to take part in the ‘Man of the Year’ on Turkey’s behalf.
Things are looking better for Erşan but for how long will that last? Potential season 2 might shed light on how the former erotic actor shapes his life after gaining success in a different genre. Will his next project be just as successful, or will Erşan once again suffer a loss? No matter the outcome, we are sure that the journey will be just as hilarious as it has been till now.
