The incompleteness of the collections in the production department, the beginning of the broadcast and even in the final episodes is one of the issues that have happened many times; Mostly on the home show network and sometimes even on TV.

Since the late 80s when the series "Icey Heart" was broadcast, the trend of professional series creation was born on the home show network, until this year when most of the artists of cinema and television left. It is entering its two years in theaters, we have seen many serials stop airing many times. Even unfortunately, due to the wave of serialization that has started in the last two years in the home television network, more series are made that are stopped in the middle due to various failures.

The uncertainty of these series is to the detriment of the audience who He spends money and watches a few episodes of these series, it is a primary and important discussion that we will not go into here. But this is not the only issue that happens when these collections are stopped. Widespread financial issues, people's lack of trust in private media and domestic products, and on the other hand, more strictness of the supervisory authorities on these series, are all half-baked results of abandoning the series. Of course, the reason for these series being half-finished is different. Some of them were forced to stop due to the internal problems of the producers' group, some due to financial deadlocks, and some of them were forced to stop due to the order of Satra and higher officials. Yes, it has rarely happened that a series is abandoned half-finished. But in the last decade, the production and broadcast of several series have been stopped halfway, each of which has its own stories. If we want to discuss all half-finished series, a long list is needed, but here we only have an overview of the Iranian series that have so far been stopped in the middle of the broadcast, leaving the audience in uncertainty. h2>

    From the middle of 99, the news of the start of making a costly series based on the stories of Naser al-Din Shah's court became the media. While "Jiran" was going through the pre-production stages during the outbreak of the Corona virus, another series called "Ahoy Man Maral" directed by Mehrdad Ghafarzadeh with the same plot had received a production license. The production stages of the two serials proceeded in silence, and after some time, the actors and make-up of the characters of these two serials were unveiled. This was while at the same time, another collection based on the life of Naser al-Din Shah, of course with a humorous look, called "Qibla Alam" had entered the production stages. Until the mid-autumn of 1400, there was no news about the distribution of "Jeeran". Until finally, the end of December was considered for the release of the first part of this series. But the publicity of the court case and the public complaint of the director of "Ahoy Man Maral" to the makers of "Jeeran" became a problem for this series, and after a delay of several days, at the end of Bahman 1400, "Jeeran" was finally released on the Filmo platform. This series was accompanied by many criticisms from the very first days, and many did not consider it as good as Hassan Fathi's previous works. On the other hand, the historical problems that existed in the references and atmospheres of this series made "Jeeran" the target of attacks by historical researchers. Nevertheless, this series was able to attract a wide audience from the very first episodes and had its own fans.

This claim and the registration of a legal complaint were in progress for several months until finally, with this ruling, the publication of "Jeeran" was stopped from July 29, 1401.

This series, like the previous works of this director in the cinema, was supposed to be made and broadcast in the comedy genre. Most of the media and the followers of the drama network series were waiting for the release of this work because they considered it the second historical satire after "Bitter Coffee". The series "Qiblah Alam" was released in the middle of August 1400 by the Filmo platform, and from the very first episode, a wave of criticism was sent to the theme, structure and historical mockery that was in it. But the only problem of this series was not its structure, and from the second episode, there were constant discussions of many audits and the deletion of its sequences. The broadcast reached the mourning days of Tasua and Ashura, and the production team announced that the third episode will be broadcast after the mourning days. But this date was postponed several times. After that, the fourth, fifth, and sixth parts were delayed and many audits reached the audience. Finally, Filmo announced that "Qiblah Alam" will end in the seventh episode, and the reason for this was the fact that Satra did not issue a license because Hamed Kamili, who played the role of Naseruddin Shah, was naked in this episode. But with the stoppage of the series, different media, by speculating and conducting interviews, announced the non-broadcasting of this series due to structural weakness and the cancellation of the contract by Filmo. On the other hand, the actors and creators of this series in their Instagram posts and their statements stated that the main reason for stopping the production and broadcasting of the series was the excessive censorship of "Qibla Alam" by Satra.

Even the creators of the series were able to convince Saeed Kangrani, a famous actor before the revolution, to play a role in this series, and this could greatly help the showcase features of the series. But Kangrani's sudden death was the first disappointment of this series. Dancing on Glass, like many home theater series of those years, was produced and aired weekly and did not have a set version. The actors fulfilled their commitments for several episodes. But little by little, the actors were suddenly removed from the series and the charm of the story was lost.

The creators have also had to move the series forward by editing and gluing together the parts that have already been filmed.

This series invited famous actors to cook dinner for each other and be guests. The series was surprisingly well received and is still being made by other directors. This success inspired Birang to create a series for new media based on the same old formula to repeat the fond memories of series like "Khane Sabz" and "Hamsran" that he made for television in the seventies. "Love is not closed" was launched with the structure of a sitcom and by copying the decor of the famous American series "Dostan" along with the presence of the money-making faces of cinema, namely Mohammad Reza Golzar and Mahnaz Afshar. But its publication did not bring good feedback. People had not yet completely turned away from television, and on the other hand, artistic sitcoms with the structure of this series were not very welcome. "Love is not a holiday" was stopped forever. But the main reason was never officially disclosed in the media. In an Instagram post, Mahnaz Afshar talked about the story not being ready and the actors not being satisfied with the quality of the work. But Bijan Birang had said somewhere about actors not focusing on work and being in several projects at the same time. In any case, this series, which had entered the production phase after spending a lot of money on setting and expensive contracts with actors, was never assigned.

But until the last moment, the television did not agree with its structure, and a manager decided to take this series to the home network with a lot of risk. But this risk paid off and "Bitter Coffee" was welcomed by the audience much more than expected. The production team produced and broadcast 104 episodes. This series was about the journey of a history researcher to a neglected period of Iran's past, before the invasion of Agha Mohammad Khan Qajar. The quality of this series dropped significantly after the second season, when the characters came to the present time, and even Mehran Moderi himself decided not to continue playing in this series. But still, the audience of this series was still waiting for its new episodes.

    The reason for remaining incomplete: Many actors and Mehran Moderi, as the director and actor of this series, considered "Bitter Coffee" as one. They know it as one of the best works of their career. But the airing of this popular series was suddenly stopped when the characters were returning to the past in the third season of the story. This stop gave rise to many rumors, from the fight between the manager and the producers to Irshad's objections to the decline in the quality of the series, etc., but the fact is that until today the definitive and main reason for the half-finished series has not been determined. On the other hand, even many agents in these years demanded to make the final part of this series. But the final 6 episodes of "Bitter Coffee" went to the archive forever.

    The series "Icy Heart" was the first series of home theater network that was officially produced with the globally defined structures of this medium. This collection was made available to the audience on DVD in two seasons, from the summer of 2009 to the end of the winter of 2009, and was able to pave the way for the production of various collections on the home theater network. "Heart of Ice" was considered very disruptive and progressive compared to the series that were broadcast on TV in those days. In terms of decor, make-up and costume design, and most importantly, the story and its payment, it had created a different cultural food for the audience. Of course, there was a big problem on the way of the "Ice Heart" series as the first series of the home show network, and that was the copyright issue. The use of non-television serials had not been cultured yet, and this caused the widespread smuggling of low-quality and burned versions of this serial on the black market and the Internet.

    The reason for remaining incomplete: In the second season, there were whispers about the quarrel between the actors, the producer and the director of this series. In various interviews, the director and the agents kept announcing that due to illegal copying, Seyed Kamal Tabatabai, the producer of this series, went bankrupt and could no longer afford the costs of making the series. Finally, this flow reached the point where this series with previous actors without ending It was left unfinished. Almost a year after this incident, in the fall of 2019, the news of the release of the third season of "Ice Heart" with the production of Tabatabai again became the media. But this time, the lottery of a director named Saman Moghadam had come first. Even though the third season was made with the presence of more famous actors such as Mehran Madiri, Reza Attaran, Reza Kianian, Hediha Tehrani, Haniye Tousli, etc., it still could not be seen as it should be. Even still, the producer failed to fulfill his obligations and the final episodes of this series were published with many delays and irregularly.
