Indonesian comedy series Cek Toko Sebelah (Check the Store Next Door), an adaptation of the 2016 film of the same name, will be available on streaming platform Netflix starting on Dec. 2.

Titled Check the Store Next Door: The Next Chapter, the series will have two seasons. The first season will center on Koh Afuk (Chew Kin Wah), who after retiring and leaving the Jaya Baru store decides to acquire a fish pond. This leads to him meeting and managing quirky employees.

The second season will consist of nine episodes and will provide an answer to the biggest question in the previous season: why Koh Afuk was imprisoned.

Check the Store Next Door: The Next Chapter will feature new faces, namely Morgan Oey, Anggika Bolsterli, Jenny Zhang, Aci Resti, Bintang Emon and Arie Kriting, alongside other recurring cast members, including Ernest Prakasa, Adjis Doaibu, Awwe and Yusril Fahriza.

In 2018, the series was available on streaming service HOOQ, but the service stopped its operations in April because of “a stakeholder's decision to file for liquidation in late March”.

The Cek Toko Sebelah film was written and directed by standup comedian Ernest Prakasa. It received nine nominations at the 2017 Indonesian Film Festival and won in the Best Original Screenplay category. (wir/wng)
