Facts About Lovebird – Wren (Calikusu)

Have you watched Turkish drama Wren (Calikusu) which is also known as Lovebird? This Turkish drama was adapted by Resat Nuri Guntekin’s famous Turkish novel. The book tells the story of an orphaned girl named Feride and her adventures in Anatolia as a young school teacher.

Turkish drama Wren – Lovebird (Calikusu) was broadcasted in 2013 and starred Burak Ozcivit and Fahriye Evcen.

However, this Turkish drama was cancelled before completion due to low episode ratings. Even though Resat Nuri Guntekin’s book has the largest section about Feride’s adventures in Anatolia, in this Turkish drama we could not see Feride became a teacher and lived in Anatolia.

One of the reasons why this Turkish drama could not achieve high episode ratings come from the fact that Turkish audience had already watched another version of Wren – Lovebird (Calikusu) years ago. The former version was made in 1986 and starred Aydan Sener and Kadir Kalav.

This version was totally in accordance with the original novel and Turkish actress Aydan Sener was so successful as a stubborn and naive school teacher.

  1. Why is it that Turkish movies and tv shows always depict superiority of Islam over Christianity? Why do they denigrate Christians by depicting them as evil, weak or immoral?

Please encourage this— we have been able in the USA to get series concluded by voice of those who watch. Please consider

  4. Please complete the series! There are audience in other parts of the world as well and I truly enjoyed watching it. I was upset the way it ended abruptly. It would be good to finish it!

  5. I so enjoyed this series. My husband and I watched it every night. We were both disappointed when it ended. Not only because there was no closure with any of the characters lives but also because it was over. Really wanted to see some happiness for Lovebird in her life.
