Netflix’s Wild Abandon trailer looks nothing less than an adrenaline-filled wild and blood ride to be on. Co-created by Onur Saylak (who also serves as the director for the show) and Hakan Gunday, this upcoming Turkish dramedy might remind viewers eerily of HBO’s hit show Succession. The Turkish TV drama fandom is huge and, Netflix’s slate for the fandom starting from Love 101 to the recently released In Good Hands. Thus, the addition of this particular series just builds up the excitement for what more Netflix has to offer the fandom.
The Wild Abandon trailer features the cast of the series which includes Oner Erkan, Ugur Yucel, Haluk Biligner, Songul Oden, Ibrahim Selim and others. In the trailer, we are introduced to the Uysal family, who might look picture-perfect but, are burdened with their own demons. The trailer focuses on the character of Oktay, who is a member of the Uysal family and, ends up living a double life when he is overcome by a panic attack and, experiences a mid-life crisis.
YouTube’s trailer description for the show reads: “In the haze of a midlife crisis, an architect begins living a double life as a punk while members of his family lead their own crisis-ridden lives.”
Wild Abandon trailer is dominated by the spirit of breaking free and following one’s heart. We see Oktay face criticism and crisis in his personal life after adopting a punk lifestyle, but that does not stop him from being himself.
