What to expect
Reportedly, the fourth season of The Protector will be released with ten episodes. Each episode is roughly 40 minutes long.
The previous installment showcased the conclusion of Hakan’s fight with Vizier. Hakan put up a brave battle with Vizier, but he still failed to stop the city of Istanbul from falling to the darkness of the immortal.
Thus, in the upcoming season, Hakan must fight for the future of his city and himself. He is expected to find the darkness and bring balance back towards the light. His main goal is to stop the immortals for good as well.
Is season 4 the last of the series?
On a side note, rumors regarding season 4 being the last installment of The Protector have been circulating for some time. Even several Turkish publications have talked about this. For one, a Turkish news site named Zeynart.
Meanwhile, Netflix has yet to issue an official statement regarding the full details of the renewal. Therefore, these speculations must be taken with a grain of salt in mind.
