Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla's teleserye comeback is finally happening this 2020.
Their series is one of the titles shown in ABS-CBN's omnibus plug, released yesterday, January 13, to showcase the network's 2020 offerings.
The plug showed a short clip from the last episode of KathNiel's last teleserye, La Luna Sangre. Then the revelation was made that the upcoming KathNiel series will be titled Tanging Mahal.
No other information was given, aside from this being a new teleserye from the Kapamilya network.
In previous interviews, Kathryn and Daniel had said that their upcoming series will be shot in Mexico.
Maja Salvador's fan account on Twitter, @majasuperstar, which has insider information about ABS-CBN shows, tweeted that the KathNiel series is a candidate to replace Coco Martin's FPJ's Ang Probinsyano.
FPJ's Ang Probinsyano has been airing since 2015. Two KathNiel teleseryes have already aired during FPJ's Ang Probinsyano's run: Pangako Sa 'Yo (2015-2016) and La Luna Sangre (2017-2018).
@majasuperstar wrote in the tweet: "Tanging Mahal, new teleserye of KathNiel na ishoshoot sa Mexico lang naman. As far as I know, sa 1st slot ito naka position but we'll see kung may extension pa si Cardo. From the title itself, parang big drama romance feels ito."
KathNiel's Tanging Mahal will be produced by Dreamscape Entertainment, the same business unit of ABS-CBN that produces FPJ's Ang Probinsyano.
Dreamscape Entertainment has yet to confirm if Tanging Mahal will indeed replace FPJ's Ang Probinsyano.
The last time Kathryn and Daniel worked in a series produced by Dreamscape Entertainment was on their first TV show together, the 2011 weekly series Growing Up.
After Growing Up, KathNiel top-billed shows produced by another business unit, Star Creatives, which included Princess and I (2012-2013), Got To Believe (2013-2014), Pangako Sa 'Yo (2015-2016), and La Luna Sangre (2017-2018).
Fans were excited to learn about this new KathNiel teleserye.
"Tanging Mahal" was one of the trending topics on Twitter yesterday, January 13. As of this writing, "Tanging Mahal" is in the sixth trending spot, and has already accumulated 12.9K tweets.
