According to Variety, the horror anthology series “Folklore” is returning for a second season. Following the same format as season 1, each story will be directed by a local director from a different Asian territory.
The seven directors for the second season include Sittisiri Mongkolsiri from Thailand; Shih-Han Liao from Taiwan; Erik Matti from the Philippines; Billy Christian from Indonesia; Nicole Midori Woodford from Singapore; and Bradley Liew from Malaysia. Japanese pop singer-songwriter, Matsuda Seiko, will be making a directorial debut with her segment.
With production again headed by Singapore-based filmmaker Eric Khoo, the new season will begin filming early in 2021. The completed series will be carried later in the year by HBO and HBO Go.
