Could The Much-Awaited Darna Film Become a Series Instead?

Here's the lowdown on ABS-CBN's plans.

After news of the project being canceled came out last August, the new installment of Darna starring Jane de Leon is apparently getting its second chance at flight.

According to a report by, a reliable insider from ABS-CBN has confirmed that the superhero film will be reworked and aired as a TV series in 2021 and shown as a movie later on.


It's said that it will follow in the footsteps of The House Arrest of Us, the Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla movie that was also reworked into a series. Episodes of the said show were aired weekly on the network's pay-per-view platforms.

Though it wasn't confirmed if the Darna series will also be a weekly show, it was mentioned that it will premiere on the ABS-CBN streaming platform iWantTFC, formerly known as iWant TV. Another unconfirmed detail is whether the film's director, Jerrold Tarog, will still be on board.

The possibility of a TV series was initially brought up by Jane's co-manager Tyrone James Escalante in an interview with PEP Troika. "May plano na gawing TV series ang Darna sa Kapamilya Channel, pero nothing concrete pa rin po tungkol dito," he told the entertainment site.

ABS-CBN has yet to officially verify the news, but we're definitely keeping our fingers crossed!
