Turkish series have become everyone’s favorites and there are more and more productions of this genre competing with each other on the small screen. While there are some that manage to become a success with audiences, there are others that run the risk of being canceled shortly after being on the air.

WHY WAS THE LAST FEYYAZ DUMAN SERIES CANCELED AFTER FIVE CHAPTERS?
The Turkish series “Yalancılar ve Mumları”, translated into Spanish as “Liars and their candles”, narrates the love lives, relationships, secrets, lies and, most importantly, the friendships of four friends, Ceyda, Elif, Meliha and Şebnem.
All of them have to face the complexities of relationships, not only in love, but also in friendship. The breaking point in Elif’s (Ceren Moray) life is the disappearance of her husband, Engin (Ismail Demirci), which drives the unfolding of the story.
As a cast of renowned actors and a good story, audience expectations were high. However, the meticulous work of Medyapım could not guarantee that the series would be adopted by the audience in the first episodes that had a low rating.
Faced with this situation, and with only five episodes issued, Fox Turkey decided to cancel “Yalancılar ve Mumları”, which came to an end on October 31, 2021. The actors of the series, the production team and the audience were surprised with the abrupt and swift ending.
Fox Turkey is known to immediately cancel projects that get low ratings. This without giving them time to generate loyalty with the audience, which is why other series on the channel continue to be negatively affected by this situation.[display-posts orderby="rand"]
The actress Ceren Moray, who played “Elif” in the series, spoke about the cancellation of the project showing her discomfort: “It was a very early final for us, we were shocked like the whole team. I think the audience wanted a different job, let it be like this this year, “he said on his social networks.
Ceren Moray, who paid close attention to the script options, added: “I read and worked on this for months like labor pains, I was very sorry that it ended early.”
The truth is that the cancellation of the series surprised the actors and production team who had worked very hard on this promising story that unfortunately came to an end in its fifth chapter.
