iWantTFC, the home of Filipino stories, has unveiled its lineup of upcoming originals for 2022, including “He’s Into Her” season two, Janine Gutierrez and Lovi Poe’s queer romance, and Angelica Panganiban’s series about moving on, in its “iWantTFC Unwrapped” event that was livestreamed on Friday (December 10) on ABS-CBN’s various social media pages.
The ‘kilig’ continues in the second season of “He’s Into Her,” where Max and Deib (Belle Mariano and Donny Pangilinan) face the joys and challenges of being in a new relationship. Its beloved Benison ‘bearkada, composed of Joao Constancia, Criza Taa, Kaori Oinuma, Vivoree Esclito, Jeremiah Lisbo, Gello Marquez, Ashley De Mundo, and Dalia Varde are also returning to the phenomenal hit series.
A teen barkada learns about life and love in “Tara G!” starring Daniella Stranner, Anthony Jennings, Kaori, Vivoree, JC Alcantara, Zach Castaneda, and CJ Salonga, who travel through various destinations and learn lessons about life and love as they navigate their way to adulthood.
Janine Gutierrez and Lovi Poe will be teaming up in their first project together, “Sleep With Me,” an inter-abled queer female romance between a wheelchair-bound radio DJ and a girl who suffers from a sleep disorder.
Angelica Panganiban headlines the miniseries “The Goodbye Girl,” based on the book of the same name by best-selling author Noreen Capili, which profiles the different types of “goodbye girls” and their ways of moving on from a heartbreak. Its superstar cast is composed of real-life sweethearts Loisa Andalio and Ronnie Alonte, Maris Racal and Rico Blanco, as well as Barbie Imperial, Elisse Joson, JC De Vera, RK Bagatsing, Turs Daza, and Joshua Colet.
“Click Like Share’s” third season, which will star Belle, Elmo Magalona, Jane Oineza, JC Alcantara, Jerome Canlas, and Vivoree, will continue to promote responsible social media use while highlighting forgiveness, kindness, and contentment.
For the first time ever, Francine Diaz will be paired with three leading men – BGYO’s Akira Morishita and The Squad Plus’ Ashton Salvador and KD Estrada – in “Bola Bola,” where she plays an overweight high school student who cooks her way to her crush’s heart. Squadmates Analain Salvador and Danica Ontengco will also be seen in the series, an adaptation of Anna Geronga’s best-selling book.
Sylvia Sanchez and Ria Atayde’s mom-daughter tandem shines in iWantTFC’s Mother’s Day offering, “Mrs. Piggy,” about a self-made woman who has devoted her life to providing for her family that she practically missed out on her kids growing up. Now, she has to tie up the pieces to make them whole again.
These seven originals comprise the first batch of originals coming to iWantTFC in 2022, with more in the pipeline.
