"From the hottest new releases to never before seen originals, there's more exciting anime coming your way in 2021," read the post by Netflix’s Twitter account for all things geek.
The highly-anticipated anime series is based on the award-winning Filipino fantasy, crime-horror comic book created by Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldisimo. The story, which is set in Manila, follows Alexandra Trese, a detective who deals with crimes of supernatural origin in a city where mythical creatures of Philippine folklore live in hiding among humans.
Netflix previously gave fans the first look at the at the upcoming Filipino Netflix anime series last October 2020.
In March this year, it was revealed that Filipina actress Liza Soberano (Alone Together) would voice the lead character of Alexandra Trese in the Filipino version, while Filipino-Canadian actress Shay Mitchell (Pretty Little Liars) will lend her voice to the English version of the anime.
Eagle-eyed fans were quick to screenshot the clip and share it while retweeting the video to express their excitement. The official Facebook page of Trese Comics also shared the screenshot of the clip which features a younger-looking Alexandra Trese, minus her trademark hairstyle, which garnered various reactions from readers.
