, which ends tonight (28 October).
As we mentioned here
, Kurt en Shura was scheduled to replace it but that's going to stream on eVOD first, after a one episode promo on Friday 29 October.
So what's the story with Wrede Stad and who is the girl in the black garbage bag with pockets?
All is revealed in this photo story:
Agah Karaçay is a wealthy man who relocated from the small town of Antakya to the major city of Istanbul a long time ago.
He lives in a magnificent mansion with his beautiful, ambitious wife Seniz, irresponsible son Cenk and carefree daughter Damla. His disabled nephew Nedim lives with them too.
Agah's older brother and Nedim's father died years ago and left Agah his fortune, and his son. Agah took over raising Nedim and then a tragedy struck which left Nedim disabled.
Agah loves Nedim and wants the best for him but his wife Seniz doesn't feel the same way and wants to get rid of him because he knows a secret that she's hiding.
Agah doesn't know the details of her antagonism but he does know that if something happened to him, neither his wife nor children would take care of Nedim.
He decides that he needs to find Nedim a caregiver wife and he wants to buy her. He tasks his housekeeper Nurten with the responsibility of finding Nedim a bride from his hometown of Antakya.
Seher Yilmaz is a proud, traditional and conservative mother who lives in Antakya with her two daughters, Cemre and Ceren, her son Civan and her mother-in-law Neriman.
All of her children are the apples of her eye, she loves and believes in them blindly. But her children have separate lives, dreams and ambitions which Seher doesn’t know yet.
Nedim presents them with Agah’s offer of marriage and their lives will change forever when Neriman makes a deal to sell her youngest granddaughter Ceren as Nedim's wife.
Ceren likes the idea because the Karaçay family are so wealthy - problem is she thinks she's marrying Agah's playboy son Cenk instead of Nedim, a deceit created by her grandmother Neriman.
Seher doesn't want to move to Istanbul but finds herself forced to when their Antakya house burns down, a situation sparked by Ceren in her desperation to marry rich.
The family moves to Istanbul.
Agah welcomes them to the mansion without knowing how Neriman has twisted the details about the marriage and this new encounter will be a test for each person in both families.
The Karaçay’s impressive and glamorous life, which covers an old and dangerous secret, will shake both families from the ground when Seher steps into Agah’s mansion. Their lives will never be the same.
