Squid Game 2, Emily in Paris 4, Berlin, more announced at Netflix TUDUM 2023 event
A horde of new shows like Berlin and renewals of existing shows like Squid Game came at the Netflix TUDUM event 2023 held in Brazil.
Netflix held its annual TUDUM event over the weekend to announce a spate of new shows and new seasons of already-hit ones. It started with the announcement for Season 3 of Chris Hemsworth starrer Extraction and concluded with Alia Bhatt, Jamie Dornan, and Gal Gadot's Heart of Stone. But between these two upcoming titles, there were several announcements, giving a preview of what to expect from the streaming giant in the coming weeks.
Among the new shows, Money Heist's (La casa de papel) lovable character of Berlin, played by Pedro Alonso, is getting his own eponymous show. Netflix released the first teaser of Berlin, showing a new cast for the spinoff. Netflix also previewed its upcoming teen musical drama, The Archies, which is set in India's 1960s and offers a desi touch to Riverdale's teens. There is also new series called 3 Body Problem from the showrunners of Game of Thrones. Avatar: The Last Airbender, Netflix's upcoming live-action series, also got a short glimpse at the show.
Chris Hemsworth's Extraction franchise is getting a third movie after the first two set off to a successful start. Both Hemsworth and director Sam Hargrave were on stage to make the announcement during the TUDUM event.
Squid Game Season 2
The first season of Squid Game became a global phenomenon, bringing actors Lee Jung-jae, Lee Byung-Hun, Wi Ha-jun, and Gong Yoo to the spotlight. They all are returning with the second season of Squid Game and will be joined by new members of the cast, Yim Si-Wan, Kang Ha-Neul, Park Sung-Hoon, and Yang Dong-Geun. Netflix did not drop a trailer, but the announcement about the cast makes the wait intense.
Squid Game: The Challenge
Not just a second season, Netflix is coming up with the first reality show based on Squid Game. It will involve 456 participants who will compete in schoolyard games over 10 episodes to win prize money of $4.56 million. It is identical to how Squid Game characters played different games, except for elimination by death.
Emily in Paris Season 4
Our favourite Lily Collins will return for the fourth season of the hit Netflix original series Emily in Paris. A new teaser for the show has Emily set to go on a Roman holiday in the fourth season. "Is Alfie still heartbroken? Will Gabriel get his Michelin star? Will Mandy and the band go to Eurovision? Will Sylvie's rekindled love last? And -- the question on all of our minds -- will Emily and Gabriel finally get together?" Collins teased.
From the world of Money Heist/ La casa de papel, Berlin will follow the journey of, well, Berlin before he became a part of Professor's master plan. Pedro Alonso will reprise his role as Berlin in this eponymous series, joined by an entirely new cast. "His plan: to steal 44 million -- in one afternoon." Netflix tweeted.
Set in 1960s India, this upcoming musical drama relives the story of Archie and his friends from Riverdale, but in an entirely different setting. The entire Indian cast, including Suhana Khan, Agastya Nanda, Khushi Kapoor, Mihir Ahuja, Dot, And Vedang Raina, will be a part of what may be best called a desi Riverdale. The first teaser of The Archies dropped alongside a sizzle reel.

Another hit show based on a heist, Lupin is getting its third season on October 3. Omay Sy will reprise his role as Assane Diop in this Ars ne Lupin-inspired show. Netflix released an exclusive clip from Part 3.
Stranger Things Season 5
Season 5 of Stranger Things may take more time than expected to come out. Due to the writers' strike, the filming has not even begun more than a year after Season 4 was released. But Netflix gave some hope by announcing that Linda Hamilton -- who starred in Terminator -- will join the cast in the fifth and final season of Stranger Things.
Fubar Season 2
