After only two weeks, a television network in Indonesia decided to stop the airing of ABS-CBN’s Darna.
According to Sobat TV Indonesia, the possible decision of the television network ANTV to end its airing of Darna was because of the ratings it was receiving.
It was rumored that Darna was going to be replaced with a local program titled ‘Garis Tangan’
Some reports also said that Darna was not fit to be watched by the majority of Indonesian fans who were followers of Islam.
Indonesia was known to be a conservative country and it’s known for regulating every piece of content being aired on television.
It can be recalled that Darna’s costume was blurred several times because it’s considered as ‘revealing’ to the Indonesian watchers.
“May pagkakataon pa raw na hindi na makita ang bidang aktres na si Jane de Leon na nakasuot ng Darna costume dahil sa sobrang pag-blur sa kanya sa show,” @holaphofficial said.
As of writing, ABS-CBN has yet to release a statement on the decision of ANTV to stop the airing of Darna.
It can be remembered that fans of ABS-CBN celebrated the airing of Darna in Indonesia, saying that it was evidence that the said program was well-received internationally.
