Jane De Leon is finally flying as the iconic Filipino superhero Darna as she begins taping for “Mars Ravelo’s Darna: The TV Series” this September.

Because of this, Jane is currently wrapping up her remaining scenes in “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano,” where she plays Capt. Lia Mante.

Viewers can expect more action-packed scenes in “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” as Lia and Cardo embark on an important mission together.

In December 2020, ABS-CBN announced that “Darna” is set to fly as a TV series in 2021.

It was revealed during the special contract signing event titled “Star Magic Shines On” wherein several of today’s sought-after talents inked their respective contracts with ABS-CBN.

Tuloy na tuloy na po ang paglipad ni Darna. Ngayong 2021 na po ang Mars Ravelo’s ‘Darna: The TV Series,” said Cory Vidanes, ABS-CBN chief operating officer of broadcast.

She also announced that Jane de Leon will portray the iconic Filipino superheroine in the TV series during the event, wherein Jane renewed her contract with Star Magic.

“I’m overwhelmed by the happiness I feel. I am so excited for the next chapters of my life,” Jane said. “It’s another dream come true. I have so much gratitude for our bosses because until now, they still entrust me with Darna’s stone,” she added.
