Good news for fans of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla as the real-life couple is set to co-star anew in a series.
The two, who just recently starred in the digi movie series The House Arrest of Us by Star Cinema, will topbill an upcoming teleserye conceptualized by Juan Miguel Severo. The Hintayan ng Langit and Gaya Sa Pelikula writer teased the new project on Twitter on Wednesday, January 13.
"Panahon na naman ng pag-ibig," he said in his tweet, which included a screenshot of a draft of a pilot script, titled "KATHNIEL SERIES 2021."

The project was also confirmed by Kathryn and Daniel during a recent blog conference for The House Arrest of Us.
"Excited kami sa teleserye na gagawin kasi 'yung concept nun, nanggaling kay Gege," said Kathryn, referring to Juan Miguel, who also happens to be their good friend.
"So it’s something na gusto namin ni DJ talaga kaya medyo nadelay dahil inaayos pa yung script. We’re happy because we’re working on a project na gusto namin yung concept," she added.
KathNiel, as their onscreen tandem is known to their fans, most recently collaborated with Juan Miguel for the music video of local band Ben&Ben's single "Sa Susunod Na Habang Buhay."
When asked if the concept of their new series would be similar to the one in the music video, Kathryn said: "Actually, sinabi niya (Juan Miguel) ito sa akin early last year. Alam mo iyon, nagfe-Facetime lang kami tapos nasabi niya iyon. But alam mo kung paano magsulat si Gege. 'Yung music video pa lang medyo kakaiba. So hindi ko masasabi sobrang similar.
"Malayo sa last na ginawa namin, which excites me and DJ, kasi matagal na naming gusto gumawa ng ganitong klase pero mahirap ito sa execution. Kailangan talaga ng time namin for that," she added.
A target release date for the teleserye has yet to be announced. However, a new romance drama starring Kathryn and Daniel was recently confirmed as among the programs scheduled to air on free TV via A2Z Channel 11 this year.
