But their plans complicate after a new family, with ties to the home's past, moves in.

Kahaani Writer-Director Sujoy Ghosh on Making His Netflix Debut With Typewriter

In addition to being director and co-writer — the latter alongside his Kahaani scribe Suresh Nair — Mr. Ghosh is also the creator and the sole credited executive producer on Typewriter. Raja Narayan Deb (Jodi Love Dile Na Prane) is responsible for Typewriter's original score, while Gairik Sarkar (Saheb Bibi Golaam) served as the director of photography for the new Netflix series from India.

There are five episodes in Typewriter season 1, and Mr. Ghosh told Gadgets 360 that he hasn't decided whether there will be a season 2. But Kohli teased that “several carrots are left dangling” at the end of the first season, which we can attest to, having seen all episodes.
