Efe is only 7 years old when he sees his mother Leyla (Senay Gurler) with another man. He hides in his father’s car with a fear that his mother and his father would end their marriage. While everybody is looking for him, his father gets in the car and finds out Efe in anxiety.

Efe and his father find themselves in the middle of a big trap. In a car accident, Efe’s father is murdered and Efe becomes the only witness to the murder. The killers arrange for the little boy to meet the same fate as his father, but the hired assassin cannot go through with it and gives the child to his fisherman friend.

Efe loses his memory; he forgets his name and family. He is separated from his identical twin brother, Mete. His real family believes that both Efe and his father have died in the car accident. In fact, Efe starts to live together with his adopted father Ismail (Mehmet Esen), mother Fatma (Gamze Suner Atay) and sister Nadide. His new life becomes a lot different than his previous life.

20 years later, Efe (Sukru Ozyildiz) becomes an adult who remembers nothing about his origins. He becomes a humble fisherman who lives happily with his adopted family. He has a modest life and loves his adopted family but always feels the need to find his real family.

One day, the assassin Kadim (Hakan Boyav) that killed Efe’s father returns to Turkey and meets Efe. He is also betrayed by the original murderers and has spent his last 20 years in prison. For this reason, he wants to take his revenge and finds Efe.

Efe eventually learns of his twin brother Mete (Sukru Ozyildiz) who has taken a job at their family business and married their childhood friend Nisan (Asli Enver). Efe and Mete finally meet for the first time after 20 years. However, the murderers learn that their witness returns and wants to take care of him once and for all.

The murderers kill Mete accidentally mistaken him for Efe. As a result, Efe adopts his brother’s identity and vows to get revenge on both his father and his twin brother.

Efe returns as Mete and starts to investigate the murder behind his twin brother and his father. He wants to find the original murderers and learn why his father and his brother have been killed. However, nothing becomes as easy as he imagines.

A humble fisherman Efe finds it hard to adapt to the wealthy life. Also, he learns that his twin brother Mete has been married with Nisan for 5 years but also has a love affair with another woman Seda (Basak Parlak). Nisan is a peaceful girl who loves Mete since childhood and dreams to have a baby. She tolerates her husband’s unfavorable attitudes and tries to be positive all the time. Out of pure coincidence, Nisan discovers his husband’s love affair and wants to get divorced.

Efe finds himself in the middle of this chaos. He tries to set the things right while trying to keep his identity secret. He does not think that it is a right thing to let Nisan go and end this marriage. He really feels sorry about her but he cannot disclose his real identity. He needs to solve this marriage problem as soon as possible and continue to focus on his real problem.

In this story, you will explore a wonderful detective story with a psychological twist. Will Efe eventually find the original murderers and take his revenge?

  1. Bring back “Winter Sun” English Subtitles on Netflix, and movies or short series like Winter Sun with Sukru Ozyildiz. Thanks

  2. Visit dizi4u .com All episodes available with subtitles. However, it opens a dozen adverts\popup pages. YouTube also has it but episode 11 missing. Just search for Kis Gunesi English. Note these Are in the original 2.5hr format so only 18 episodes in total (Netflix breaks them up into 45min episodes)

  3. I loved the show soooooooooooooooooooooooooooomuch!!, hope they bring it back. Does anyone one know if it can be purchased on video/dvd? if so please let me know. Thanks.

  4. OLIKO SAVELASVILI

    I found it with English subs, the only thing is that you have to shut a ton of ads.

  5. I was soooo thrilled that so many people have complained that winter sun was taken off
    Just suddenly. They told me at netflix that’s what happens but if enough people ask for it
    Back they will bring it back. So i am asking pleased please. I saw up to 40 episodes and am trying to watch it on utube but its problematic it doesn’6t just go to the next episode
    What do i do? I’m hoping they will put it back. Its marvelous, has everything, acting is incredible, story is wonderful actors are attractive and gorgeous. Please put it back and let people know. Thank you so much. My cousins in london told me about it so that is why i started watching. Thank yhou.

  6. I am sorry that Winter Sun was removed from Netflix. I was through episode 13. Would love to see it reinstated. I have found another good Turkish Dramas, have finished “Black Money Love” and am now watching ,” Intersection”. Hope they don’t remove this before we finish it.

  7. Go to this page, and request the show. If enough people do.this they will consider bringing to back (hint: if you don’t log in first, you can submit multiple requests yourself)

  8. I can’t beleive it either! They always tell when a movie or series will be out.
    Haré mis descargos en la página de <netflix

  9. My wife and I were were in shock when it was taken of Netflix. We were close to finishing the movie. What’s the deal here. Disappointed with Netflix.

    • HI
      THE ONLY POSSIBLE REMEDY IS IF PEOPLE CALL OR EMAIL NETFLIX AND COMPLAIN THAT NETFLIX DID NOT PUT OUT A NOTICE THAT THE SERIES WAS BEING REMOVED.
      THEY USUALLY DO GIVE A WARNING.. BUT NOT THIS TIME
      SO IF YOU CALL, EMAIL OR CHAT WITH A REPRESENTATIVE, ASK THEM TO PLEASE PUT IT BACK ON.. EVEN FOR A SHORT TIME, BECAUSE THEY DID NOT GIVE A HEADS-UP.

      • Thanks. I will get in contact with Netfllix and express our opinion. We didn’t know until now how good Turkish movies are. We saw Black Money that is one of the best we have seen. Thanks for the info Debra. Have a nice one.

  10. Hello friends,

    This wonderful show has been removed from Netflix. Although I have watched it twice, I miss watching it third time while I was watching episode 10.

    I contacted Netflix chat helpline but it’s of no use.

    Instead I would suggest to watching Winter Sun ( Turkish name “Kis Gunesi”) on YouTube. It has all 50 episodes (But as they are of 2 hours or more, it has 18 episodes in description).

    But there is only Turkish audio with No English Subtitles.

    I hope I have helped Winter Sun FANS to watch it on You Tube.

    Regards,
    Ami

  11. We were on episode 47!!!!!! THEN Boom it was gone. NO NOTICE! We want it back so we can finish it. Complained to Netflix rep they did not know why no notice given.We are still upset. Loved the show. Not happy with Netflix.

    PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL NETFLIX.

    IF ENOUGH PEOPLE CALL AND COMPLAIN, MAYBE NETFLIX WILL DO THE RIGHT THING…

    • Agree. It is Netflix’s own policy to provide a warning when a show is about to expire. I mentioned that to the rep I chatted with online.

  17. ** on their HELP page.

  18. I just had a long conversation with a Netflix customer rep. Besides taking down my feedback to pass on, about how many many people were upset by the sudden disappearance of Winter Sun, she did a search. She found that Winter Sun was not listed in any country with a Netflix platform which she personally thought was strange. She tried to get me a supervisor to talk to, but no luck. This is Netflix customer service in the U.S. on their hemp page: 844-505-2993

    • Michele Greenberg

      spoke to a supervisor they are trying to get the rights back…hopefully 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

  19. I was in the middle of it as well, I was surprised that they remove it from
    Netflix without warning and my friend phoned me to ask why she can’t find it anymore and she was just started, episode 25 maybe. If they can put it back just for a week so that we can finish it. Thanks.

  20. Winter Sun is One of the best shows I’ve watched on Netflix even though you had to read sub titles ! I was looking forward everyday to see what happened and all of a sudden I couldn’t find it!!! I’m so disappointed there wasn’t any alert that it would be taken off Netflix. I was on episode 28 and I saw that there were 50 episodes in all! Where can I finish watching this amazing story with fantastic actors?

  21. Claudia D de Bonilla

    No lo puedo creer!! Lo quitan así !! Me quede en el 30!! MUY MAL DE NETFLIX!!

  22. Why did Netflix removed the serie??? I was in the middle of it. That sucks

  23. AN IDEA!

    IF WE ALL CALL NETFLIX AND ASK IF THEY CAN PUT IT BACK ON FOR A LIMITED AMOUNT OF TIME.. SAY1 WEEK, WE CAN FINISH THE SERIES… I ALREADY CALLED..

    NETFLIX REMOVED IT WITHOUT WARNING SO MAYBE THEY WILL BRING IT BACK FOR A SHORT TIME AS A COURTESY TO ALL THE VIEWERS.

  24. Really sad that this series has just been removed from Netflix with no warning. We were in the middle of watching it.

    • I am also upset – I was on episode 26. It did not “expire,”, rather I am sure that Netflix chose not to renew the license. It’s unheard of to do this without notice. We viewers need to band together …

      • Further , Netflix written policy states that notice us given before content is removed :

        “. If a title is not renewed, we’ll give you a heads up when it’s about to leave. Visit How to find out if a TV show or movie is leaving Netflix for details.”

  25. Why remove the series with no warning!!!!!! Only on episode 14 and then it disappeared!!!

  26. We had gotten to episode 28. How can Netflix drop a series without any warning. This is wrong and makes me skeptical of Netflix policy. How can I get this?

  27. We are so sad that Winter Sun is not on Netflix. We loved it and had gotten to Episode 39. We need to find it somewhere else!! HELP!!

  28. I have been watching Wintersun on Netflix and for some reason it is not there anymore. Where can I watch it with English subtitles. I was really enjoying this series.

  29. Patricia A Webster

    I watched this movie so many times such a great movie would love to buy a copy if they were for sale….Great actors in the movie, would go to work and hurry home to watch it over and over.

  30. I can’t believe that Winter Sun has been dropped by Netflix!! I’m on episode 44 and can’t watch!! Help!

    Anyone know where I can watch this fantastic show??

  31. gillian walker samples

    Netflix has ended this and I am only twenty episodes in. Can somebody help me and send me the rest. Netflix said it has expired.

  32. Fantastic. We need a second,third fourth season. More story to tell. The gun smugglers leader has not been caught ( remember he met with Yakup) . Also the importance of showing the battle with blood cancer is very important. Please more Winter Sun.
    English subtitles are fine.

  33. I cannot get enough of Winter Sun I keep looking at the movie over and over I long for a good movie like this please give us more all the actors did a superb job

    • HELP! Winter Sun is gone from Netfix today and I was on episode 41 of 50!!!! I need to know if Nisan lived, if she and Efe got married, what happened to Kadim, Burak, everyone!! This is such a bummer:( Are these questions ever answered, as I see there will not be a season 2.

  34. Please Please make a season two, three and even four to be in whatever language it’s in and have to read I LOVE IT!! THE ACTORS ARE SOOOO GOOD and Efe boy I would go anywhere with him. On a serious note it probably got off on a bad start with netflix because of the reading if in english it would have gotten a 100, because I looked at the previews decided not to look at but then it kept popping. Up so I tried it and LOVE LOVE IT great story line Please let it come back.

  35. So upset that there will not be a series two of winter sun!! This is one of the best shows I have ever watched on Netflix and the acting is amazing!!
    They seriously need to make another series as people watching series one now are addicted to it!!
    Maybe the low rating was before people started watching series one lately on Netflix and loving it as I do and many others do that I know!!
    We need to know how it ends and if the true killers are caught and if true love prevails and Nisan and efe end up together and marry!!
    I can only hope that they will decide to change their minds and make a series two! It is a huge mistake to not continue with series two!!!!

  36. I am so glad to know I am not the only one who has a Winter Sun addiction. The acting, storyline, and setting are amazing! Thank you to all the actors and entire crew for producing such a wonderful series. It will be hard to find another one as captivating .

    Also, thank you to everyone who posted comments and suggestions for other Turkish movies.

  37. I watched all 50 episodes…..Loved this story….Actors are beautiful and so handsome. Question though…Why never kissing on the lips??? Also…I get a little tired of reading the sub titles, Can’t you dumb the words for English?

  38. Hello,

    I am currently addicted to Winter Sun, watching episode 46 currently. I want to know in Seda’s office, there is a coffee table, on the table are wooden sculptures of women doing Yoga I think. Anyone know where I can buy because I love them…

  39. Brilliant 💯🔥
    Captivating you relentlessly watch with a quest for more
    Remarkable viewing
    Rivetting

  40. Winter Sun had everything. The acting was great, kept you wanting more. The direction of intimacy was on point, even though they don’t kiss in the mouth , the gentle touches are warm and caring, better then kissing I watched Intersection and the 3rd season lacked and I was glad winter sun delivered from the beginning to the end. The investment was worth the wait. Sedace Sen excellent also. Winter Sun worth the watch, enjoy.

  41. This is one of my absolute favorite shows. I watched over and over and thought that Sukru and Ansli have the best chemistry I have ever seen. The sexual tension was so thick you couldn’t cut it with a knife. lol I do wish that there would have been a kiss or two to have made it more realistic. However, I could have watched 100 episodes of this splendid cast. I am trying to find the soundtrack recording of all the music and onlky found three sold separately. Does anyone know if there is a full soundtrack of Winter Sun?

  42. Does the season one contain the complete story? Or is there a second season? I don’t want to invest my time if it ends bad or on a cliffhanger. Please respond to this query.

  43. ***SPOILER ALERT*** I’m confused! Did Nisan die in the final episode?? It seemed like the camera pans to the sky, like she is in heaven, remembering the story Efe told her.

  44. AM so glad to find fans of Turkish dramas . I found winter sun one evening when I was surfing Netflix. I ended up whole night watching till 5 am. It is a wonderful story and acting. Now am a fan of Turkish movies. I discovered some very good ones too. Look for Ezel oh boy !you will love it. Also Gonul, lovebird,the girl I loved,intersection just to mention a few. Am now intrigued to visit Turkey and meet some of handsome men😜 however there’s something very striking in all these movies. I know they are fiction but am wondering if the people of turkey are a bit like the characters in the movies. I find the stories back ground or always rooted in unforgiveness, spiraling events based on revenge. Some personal some ingrained in family sagas. It also gives me an impression that their women are not very well considered to have a strong voice in the society. I admire though their strong sense of family loyalty and their strong family values. The family stays together whether the children are big and married. I like that especially how the children take care of the parents and brothers taking care of the sisters. God bless all the Babams and the Olos. Love winter sun!!

  45. Beautifully and carefully narrated stories with lots of life lessons in this excellent Turkish drama. Really taken by the faces of all the actors and actresses. Oh dear Fatma, love your acting; you are great. Seemed to me you are a very good woman! Loved Efe ‘s smiles, you are awesome! I love the gentle background music. Loved Asli’s shy smiles. My only regret is that the end was rushed; could have loved to see Asli being kissed by Sukru and how their family settled and hopefully seeing the birth of the babe. Over all, I would recommend this drama to my friends.

    • My exposure to Turkish movies in Netflix started with ‘Filinta’. I was totally absorbed into this movie for two weeks without getting enough of the superb acting from a slue of characters especially Onur Tuna who played Mustapha, and Ali Blade. From there on, I slept and woke with Turkish movies! I have really discovered an interesting people with unique cultural and solid historical backgrounds. It is a wonderful thing for Netflix to embrace all cultures and people and help viewers travel; see and experience strange and distant lands through the Lens of a movie! I have also picked up on some Turkish words and use them around my kids and friends (she laughs). All in all, my next big vacay will be Istanbul so I can see the beautiful landscape and people I have come to admire.

  46. I adored this series on Netflix. Thank you, for making it! I loved the happy ending. Now I am in mourning because the show ended. I am very picky and have high standards regarding what I watch and this did not disappoint. The acting was terrific! I didn’t realize I was so emotionally invested in this series. I watched all episodes in 5 days, couldn’t stop watching. Please make more like this!

  47. Winter Sun was terrific…but not once did Efe and Nisan kiss each other. Yes, he did kiss her on the forehead once or twice and they did hug. Is kissing not allowed on television shows in Turkey? 0

  48. I just finished watching Winter Sun on Netflix USA. I was happy that Netflix carried the complete drama this time. I am becoming addicted to Turkish Dramas. I keep trying to figure out what keeps me coming back for more. I think it is because you always include a wonderful love story, a little bit of comedy, a lot of crime and action and there always has to be a terrific EVIL PERSON. You create some of the best evil people that I have ever seen. In this show, Seda was the most self centered, evil person. I just wanted to hit her and throw her in a dark closet. Even when she saved Nisan’s life, I still did not forgive her for all the evil things she did. Horrible person. I enjoyed the actor that played Efe. He did a great job and what a nice head of hair he has. Very handsome man. Also, enjoyed the actress that played Nisan. She did a good job. Was happy to see a happy ending for them after all the troubles they went through.

    There is one thing that I cannot figure out about these Turkish Dramas. You always have these women wearing 4 inch heel shoes. Why??? In one show, the maid was wearing high heels cleaning the house. In this drama, you showed the woman doctor with 4 inch heels going fishing on a boat with Efe. That is just crazy and I cannot imagine that ever happening.

    Also, how did Seda take money for smuggling in her company trucks but never be charged for her crime. There is just so much killing, crime and stuff that seems to happen in these dramas but you never see the police being involved or charging them with the crimes.

    Well, overall, I enjoyed this drama. The whole idea and plot for the story was pretty crazy but I enjoyed it very much. Also, I have not been a fan of Turkish music but I thought the main song to this drama was really nice. The man singing it had a very good voice. Good job with the music.

    • I thought that I was the only one to notice the very high shoes that nearly Turkish female characters wear. I love Turkish dramas and speak Turkish, but to us in London, those high heels make the women look like low-rent hookers!

  49. I just finished watching the drama and I loved it. I massacre because I have seen two Turkish dramas which I felt disappointed because of he endings. no good ending: the girl I love and intersection. Finally and very happy this one ended happy and right. Hope to see the cast again especially sukru and asli!! congratulations!!!

    • No doubt this gotta be my 2nd fav Turkish soap opera after Kurt Seyit ve sura thus far. I love the story line and the actings are amazing, the girl who played Seda is absolutely stunning and her acting just so incredible you left with the feeling of hatred towards her. The whole casts are also incredible. I got hooked on this show after the first episode.

      • Yeahh. Seda is super beautiful!! The one that ply fatma is a wonderful actress. I loved everyone. They are all a very good cast. I hope to see them all again in another story.
