Elif scores further success around the world

Another week, another fantastic ratings report for Elif! Happy Channel in Romania started to broadcast the show at the beginning of August and have already seen a sharp increase in viewing numbers. After two weeks on air the show is regularly drawing in a viewership 4 times higher than the channel's average share.

This follows a dramatic start in Colombia where Caracol have been receiving an average 30% share since first airing the show at the end of July. The second placed channel in the same slot is reporting just a 12% share, demonstrating Elif's continued ability to draw in viewers! Elif will debut in Peru at the beginning of September on Latina.

Back in Turkey, Green Yapim are in the midst of pre-production for the third season that will be premiering on Kanal 7 later in the autumn. Just like Elif's many millions of fans worldwide, we can't wait to see what happens!
