A Turkish show titled Rumi is about to make a return to our screens, and we are here to tell you all you need to know about the show. The show, created by Kerim Ayyildiz, has been crafted with the hopes of telling the life story of Mevlana Celaleddin Rumi, the great Islamic scholar, a Sufi mystic, and a wise spiritual figure.
The first season of the show received much love from fans who were left completely stunned by the mesmerizing aesthetics of the show, excellent acting performances by the cast, and the touching life story of the poet himself.
The show stars actor Bulent Inal, who plays the leading role of Rumi, along with Kaan Yildirim, Devrim Ozkan, Yusuf Cim, Ushan Cakir, Ilker Aksum, Yilmaz Gruda, Tulin Oral, Turgay Aydin, Murat Yesil, Sanurzhan Suleiman, and so many other great actors who add immensely to the show.
This historical drama series is set in the thirteenth century and has fans completely hooked on the story of the great poet’s life. While Turkish dramas and television series are loved for the dialogues and scriptwriting, this one manages to take things one step further.
Many who have binged the first season of the show have found almost all aspects of the show to be almost perfect. Our leading actor, Bulent Inal, is as amazing as Rumi, doing the character justice by bringing it to life. The second season of the show is almost around the corner, so while you wait for the first episode to drop, here is all you need to know about when the show comes out and where you can’t watch it.
The show takes us way back in time to the thirteenth century when Maulana Rumi was alive and imparting great knowledge. The show is specifically set during the time when, in Anatolia, the Mongolians were a permanent threat over the place, and the political and social situation within the borders of Anatolia was not all that good either.
With danger looming both outside and inside the land of Anatolia, Rumi emerged as a calming balm in front of the distressed population of the peninsula. Rumi took it upon himself to stand in front of his people to ease their fears and wake them up from their nightmares.
The show takes on a journey, giving us a glimpse of the lives of the people of Anatolia back then while also exploring the life of Rumi and how he managed to unite his people with his words of reason, logic, and compassion.
His words, quoted by many even now, remain timeless and continue to inspire change in many of us. The producers of the show have done an amazing job at making the series such an immersive experience for fans.
The first episode of the show is all set to premiere on Saturday, December 9th, 2023. Fans all over the world have been waiting for the return of this show that is full of war, drama, and politics. The episodes are likely to have a runtime of no longer than seventy minutes and will likely follow a weekly schedule of release.
