The highly-anticipated animated series, Trese, was released exactly one week ago, and it quickly rose to number one in Netflix Philippine’s top releases chart. Now that it’s been a week since its premiere, Trese is still number one on Netflix PH!
Trese being the top show in the Philippines shouldn’t come as a surprise; after all, it is the first internationally-produced animated series that’s set in the Philippines and inspired by Filipino Mythology.
Still, the continuing popularity of Trese is great to see, as the show’s success might just mean that it gets renewed for a second season. If it does get a season 2, we definitely wish it gets more than six episodes.
In case you haven’t seen it yet, Trese is an animated series based on the Filipino komik of the same name by Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldisimo. The series’ premise is described by Netflix as:
“Set in Manila where mythical creatures of the Philippine folklore live in hiding amongst humans, Alexandra Trese finds herself going head to head with a criminal underworld composed of malevolent supernatural beings.”
