The story goes like this: Esra’s plan was to stay at a hotel for one night. But in the middle of the night, something unusual happened as she was transported to the year 1919. At that time, Turkey’s socio-political environment was undergoing many changes after the First World War, and Esra was caught up in the events.
The engaging storyline and period setting of this political drama series is sure to attract a lot of attention from viewers around the world. The show is based on Charles King’s book entitled ‘Midnight at the Pera Palace: The Birth of Modern Istanbul.’ Originally released in March 2022, the show has fans looking forward to the second season. So, let us share with you everything we have learned about the show.
Let’s get started!
Midnight at the Pera Palace Season 2: Potential Release Date
‘Midnight at the Pera Palace’ season 1 premieres on March 3, 2022, on Netflix. The first season consisted of eight episodes with a run time of 40-47 minutes each.
Here’s what we know about the second season. Although Netflix has yet to make an official statement, it looks like there will be a season 2. After all, the finale of season 1 is still unclear. So, it seems that another chapter is guaranteed to bring the storyline to a satisfying conclusion.
In addition, Netflix has brought several successful period dramas from Turkey such as ‘The Club,’ ‘Resurrection: Ertugrul,’ and ‘Rise of Empires: Ottoman.’ In fact, the first two shows had more than one season. So, with these factors in mind, it looks like it’s only a matter of time before the streaming platform orders another season. Having said that, if the show is updated soon and production goes on without a problem, we can expect ‘Midnight at the Pera Palace’ season 2 to be released sometime in Q1 2023 or later.
Midnight at the Pera Palace Season 2: Expected Cast
The cast in season 1 are Hazal Kaya (Esra AKA Peride), Selahattin Pasali (Halit), Tansu Bicer (Ahmet), Engin Hepileri (Resat), James Chalmers (George), and Yasemin Szawlowski (Sonya). Other actors appearing in this drama series are Yasemin Sannino (Seniha), Hakan Dinckol (Mustafa Kemal), Ahmet Varli (Dimitri), Nergis Ozturk (Eleni), Osman Albayrak (Naim), Clare Louise Frost (Agatha Christie), and Ergun Metin (Fahrettin). Most of these actors will likely return to their roles if a second season happens. We might also see some new faces.
Midnight at the Pera Palace Season 2: Expected Plot
In season 1, Esra is accompanied by Pera Palace’s doorman, Ahmet, on a time-traveling adventure. Together they managed to jeopardize George’s plans to take over Turkey but only temporarily. When Esra (as Peride) and Ahmet are chased by George, who wants to kill them, they manage to travel in time and end up in 1995 instead. There, they find a baby girl and a photo of the baby with Eleni. It turns out that the baby is Esra herself. What’s more, Eleni should be in danger, so Esra must find the “portal of truth.”
If there is a season 2, we will find out what Esra and Ahmet will do next after finding Esra’s baby in the hotel room. Besides, they don’t yet know what a “truth portal” is and what happened to Eleni. The issue with George may also be far from resolved even though he appears to have turned himself in to the police. This and more will be explored if the show returns with a second issue.
