ABS-CBN once again enters the world of werewolves and vampires as the much-awaited epic saga La Luna Sangre premieres soon on primetime television. The series stars the undisputed no. 1 love team in the country – Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla – with Angel Locsin, John Lloyd Cruz, and Richard Gutierrez.
The series, directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina, marks the return of KathNiel to television after their successful series Pangako Sa Yo and their box-office hit Can’t Help Falling in Love, which paved the way for them to be labeled the “P1 billion love team.”
Meanwhile, making his debut in an ABS-CBN teleserye is newest Kapamilya Richard Gutierrez, who plays the role of Sandrino, the king of the vampires who will stand in the way of Malia (Kathryn) and Tristan (Daniel).
Apart from KathNiel and Richard, fans are also eagerly anticipating the special participation of Locsin and Cruz, who will open the epic story and reprise their well-loved characters Lia and Mateo.
The series revolves around the prophecy called “La Luna Sangre,” which says that the child of the most powerful vampire and the chosen wolf will end the evilness of the vampire imprinted with the cursed ink.
Already living their simple lives as mortals, Mateo (John Lloyd) and Lia (Angel) are unaware that the said prophecy will haunt them. When Sandrino suddenly comes to kill them and their daughter Malia, who is believed to be the chosen one, Mateo and Lia do everything they can to protect Malia even if they no longer possess supernatural powers. But, in the end, evil prevailed and Malia is left an orphan under the care of other vampires and werewolves.
Hoping that she is indeed the chosen one to save the vampires and werewolves from great peril, they hold on to their faith in her. However, they begin to doubt Malia when she fails to show her powers after turning 21 years old – a significant change that will prove that she is the chosen one.
Out of shame, Malia chooses to leave her responsibility and bravely faces the world of mortals. There, she meets Tristan, a young man who is hunting the vampire who killed his father. As their bond grows closer, will Malia be the key to the justice Tristan yearns for? Will Malia return to the world she left behind and re-embrace her destiny to end Santino’s life? How will the prophecy affect the budding romance between Malia and Tristan?
La Luna Sangre is produced by Star Creatives, the production group behind successful series Lobo, Imortal, Got to Believe, Pangako Sa Yo, Forevermore, Dolce Amore, Pusong Ligaw, and A Love to Last.
It is airing very soon on ABS-CBN.
