….and shifted to the city of Amasya in the Black Sea region of Turkey on October 17th.
Amasya, an Ottoman city, stands in the mountains above the Black Sea coast, along the banks of the Yeşilırmak River. Over its 7,500 year history it has been a wealthy provincial capital, producing kings and princes, artists, scientists, poets and thinkers, to many generations of the Ottoman imperial dynasty.

Note: In an impromptu interview, the director of the series indicated that the show will likely air in late November or early December. He also indicated that the first three episodes of the series would be filmed in Amasya.
