The highly-rated and most viewed drama series on TV5 has proven time and again how hope and love can indeed do wonders in people’s lives. One year since it premiered in April 2021, Niña Niño now celebrates its first anniversary by providing viewers with more heartwarming episodes, introducing new colorful guest characters, and unveiling surprises that will transform the lives of the characters whom everyone fell in love with since the show premiered.
The TV series achieved its first milestone in its August 17 episode, where the show registered a 5.0% audience share, a notable achievement considering the steep primetime competition in this timeslot. The show also featured the special participation of the country’s timeless heartthrob, Piolo Pascual, who portrayed the role of Sitio Sta. Ynez’s indefatigable Mayor Charles – to the delight of many swooning viewers.
While the show endeared itself to local audiences, Niña Niño also garnered international recognition, bagging top awards for Best Drama Series and Best Actress of the Year (for lead star Maja Salvador) in the prestigious Asian Academy Creative Awards 2021 last October. Locally, Maja also won the Favorite Bida and Actress of the Year awards for Niña Niño in the 2021 LionhearTV RAWR Awards.
In November, TV5 announced the show’s series extension and celebrated this along with their year-end achievements via the “Himala ng Pasko” campaign. To make Christmas even more meaningful, it was also officially added to the Netflix roster of shows and started streaming on December 30. Since then, the series was consistently in the Top 10 most-streamed programs on Netflix Philippines for several weeks.
“Niña Niño has achieved so much more than we expected, and we are honored and thankful for having such an inspiring show to boost everyone’s morale and entertain so many viewers all across the country. Of course, the credit goes to the hardworking creative team behind the show, all the artists and production staff for their collective effort to create such a remarkable series. We congratulate Niña Niño on its first anniversary and we look forward to what the show has in store for all of us in the coming weeks,” shared Robert P. Galang, Cignal and TV5 President and CEO.
Using the official anniversary hashtag, #1sangTaonNgHimala, celebrate with Maja Salvador, Noel Comia Jr., and the rest of the Niña Niño cast as they revisit their most memorable moments on the show. The upcoming episodes are sure to get more compelling with more twists and challenges as both Niña and Niño beat all odds for the love of their family and community in Sta. Ynez.
Be prepared to see more miracles come to life and catch Niña Niño every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday at 7:15PM on TV5.
