Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla return to television in the sequel of 'Imortal'

MANILA, Philippines – The Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla tandem (aka KathNiel) is back with a new telserye, La Luna Sangre.

The show is the 3rd installment in the fantasy franchise, which includes Lobo (2008) and Imortal (2010). 

Joining the couple on-screen are Angel Locsin and John Lloyd Cruz, reprising their roles as Lia and Mateo. Also onboard is Richard Gutierrez, who is back from a break – La Luna Sangre is his first TV show with ABS-CBN too. 

The series takes places after a few years after Imortal. In the new series, Lia and Mateo are happily in love and are settled in the province with their daughter Malia (Kathryn Bernardo). (WATCH: Full trailer of ‘La Luna Sangre’ released)

But their past comes back to haunt them when a prophecy known as “La Luna Sangre” predicts that the child of a werewolf and a vampire will defeat an evil vampire who is tattooed with cursed ink. (WATCH: Richard Gutierrez is a vampire in ‘La Luna Sangre’)

Believing that Lia and Mateo’s daughter Malia is the chosen one, a group of vampires led by Sandrino (Richard Gutierrez) hunts them down. Lia and Mateo fight to save their daughter and later entrust Malia under the care of their friends, who raise her.
