Launching later this year, upcoming Netflix original series The Protector follows the epic adventure of Hakan, a young shopkeeper whose modern world gets turned upside down when he learns he’s connected to a secret, ancient order, tasked with protecting Istanbul.
At the story’s start, Hakan couldn’t be further from a hero — just an ordinary guy in this city of 15 million, where East meets West and past meets present.
He must quickly learn that his hometown is under threat from the mysterious, mystical Immortals, and it’s his job to stop them.
It’s a task he’s not only unprepared for, but resists — will he fulfill his destiny as the last protector?
The 10-episode original Turkish series stars Cagatay Ulusoy, Ayca Aysin Turan, Hazar Erguclu, Okan Yalabik, Mehmet Kurtulus, Saygin Soysal and Burcin Terzioglu.
