Avlu, the Turkish adaptation of the Australian prison drama, has locked in even more episodes on Star TV after its successful debut on March. 

Prison dramas are all the rage; and Turkish TV isn't falling behind. In fact, Star TV has announced more episodes of Avlu, the local adaptation of the Australian series Wentworth, which debuted with huge success earlier this March.

Since its premiere, the show has become one of Star TV’s most successful dramas, winning up to 3.4 million viewers per episode and outperforming the network's prime time average among all key demographics.

The news comes after a deal between FremantleMedia International (FMI) and Limon Film for the production of the new episodes.

Set in a female prison in Istanbul, Avlu boasts the same legendary characters as the Australian original with action-packed stories of survival as the inmates are thrown together to tackle life behind bars.

"We are extremely proud of the success Avlu has achieved so far and can’t wait to see even more of its suspense-filled action unfold," said Anahita Kheder, SVP Middle East, Africa & South Eastern Europe, FremantleMedia International.

"It’s one of the most talked about dramas in the region right now, capturing not only the attention of audiences, but international broadcasters too," added the executive.

The original series made its debut on May 13 on Australia's SoHo and Foxtel networks to quickly become one of the most popular original dramas in Australian pay-tv.

Produced by FremantleMedia Australia, Wentworth has been sold to 140 territories worldwide and has been adapted in the Netherlands (Celblok H), Germany (Block B – Unter Arrest), Belgium (Gent-West) and most recently, Turkey (Avlu).
