"Maria Clara at Ibarra" is No. 1 on Netflix!
Since the hit Kapuso historical drama became available for streaming on Netflix last Friday, the show has been trending again.
As of writing, "Maria Clara at Ibarra" hit the No. 1 spot in Philippine TV shows on the streaming giant platform.
"Maria Clara at Ibarra," starring Barbie Forteza, David Licauco, Julie Anne San Jose, and Dennis Trillo, among others, aired its finale on GMA Telebabad last February.
It follows the story of Gen Z nursing student Klay, portrayed by Barbie, who is uninterested in societal issues and her Jose Rizal subjects. When Klay gets busted for submitting a plagiarized report, her professor Mr. Torres lends her his copy of "Noli Me Tangere." Klay falls asleep while reading and suddenly finds herself in the novel's world.
The show received a loyal fan following and produced a successful "FiLay" love team with Barbie and David. —Hermes Tunac/KG, GMA Integrated News
