Created by HBO Asia and helmed by Filipino filmmaker and director Mikhail Red, the third season ventures from the neon streets of Bangkok to the gun-stricken streets of Manila, where blood thirsty mythical creatures known as Engkangtos live out in the open amongst humans. Alex, a half-human and half-Engkangto seeks to find the original source of the dwindling haven plant to heal all Engkangtos of their hunger for human flesh amidst the war between the Engkangto tribes over the coveted plant and power.

HBO Asia’s Senior Vice President of Original Production, Jessica Kam, said, “As we expand the fictional world of HALFWORLDS, we are very excited to continue transcending geographical boundaries to work with talents from the various countries in the region to produce our longest running Asian original series.”

Led by Filipino stars Bianca Umali (Sahaya; Barbi D’ Wonder Beki) and Sam Concepcion (Shake, Rattle & Roll 13; Indak), season three of HALFWORLDS is produced by HBO Asia in partnership with Cignal TV. The series will also see returning cast from the previous seasons.

“Cignal TV is honoured and privileged to work with HBO Asia,” said Jane J. Basas, President/CEO of Cignal TV. “The literary development was thought provoking as it leveraged the strengths of the stories in Seasons 1 and 2. The whole creative and production team is excited to kick-off the principal photography,” Basas added.

Mikhail Red and Bianca Umali will also be in Singapore this week to speak at a directing workshop organised by HBO Asia and Info-communications Media Development Authority of Singapore (IMDA) as part of a two-and-a-half-year collaboration to develop the drama production capabilities of Singapore’s media industry and talent.
