Descendants of the Sun Philippines to Stream on Netflix


GMA Network’s prime-time series Descendants of the Sun Philippines is set to make its debut on Netflix in the Philippines on November 13.

Descendants of the Sun Philippines marks the first GMA program to be streamed on Netflix Philippines. Headlined by Dingdong Dantes and Jennylyn Mercado, the series follows the fickle love story of Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Special Forces Captain Lucas Manalo (a.k.a. “Big Boss”) and cardiothoracic surgeon Dr. Maxine Dela Cruz (“Beauty”).

Descendants of the Sun Philippines originally premiered on February 10, but production was temporarily suspended due to the restrictions brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. Lock-in tapings with strict safety measures were held last month, which enabled the series to resume its run on October 26, starting with a two-week recap on GMA Telebabad.
