Malaysian Director To Helm An Episode of HBO’s Folklore Season 2

WarnerMedia has announced the second season of the HBO Asia Original horror anthology series, Folklore.

Principal photography for the seven-part hour-long series will commence early next year in seven Asian territories including Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand.

Each episode will be directed by a local director from each territory, with Malaysian Bradley Liew directing one episode.

Liew is an alumnus of acclaimed institutions such as the NAFF Fantastic Film School, Tokyo Talents and Sam Spiegel International Film Lab. His first feature film, 2016’s Singing In Graveyards, was awarded Southeast Asian Film Lab Most Promising Project Award.

He will be the second Malaysian director to be in the HBO series, as the first season featured Ho Yuhang’s episode, TOYOL.

Helmed once again by Singapore’s award-winning filmmaker Eric Khoo, the second season of Folklore will ramp up the fear factor as it examines the human condition when exposed to supernatural powers in a mind-bending race against oneself, each story bringing a different take and perspective.

The directors for this 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. Pop singer-songwriter, Seiko Matsuda, will be making her directorial debut in the episode from Japan.

WarnerMedia India, Southeast Asia and Korea Head of Entertainment Magdalene Ew said:

“The horror genre has always worked well in Asia.

Following the success of the first season of Folklore, WarnerMedia has greenlit the second season of the award-winning series, expanding the anthology series to more Asian countries.

Folklore Season 2 will feature a mix of established and up-and-coming auteurs, each with distinct sensibilities, including two female directors from the region.”

Folklore Season 2 will premiere later in 2021 on HBO GO and HBO. You can stream or download the six-part first season of Folklore on HBO GO now.
