This was announced on Friday as Jane renewed her contract with ABS-CBN.

“Tuloy na tuloy na po ang paglipad ni Darna (Darna will finally fly),” ABS-CBN chief operating officer Cory Vidanes said of the announcement during Jane’s contract signing.

“Ngayong 2021 na po (This 2021), ‘Mars Ravelo’s Darna: The TV Series starring Jane De Leon,” Vidanes added.

Jane was elated with the announcement, saying ”Parang nag-flashback po na in-announce po sa akin ang Darna (It was as if there was a flashback when it was announced I would be the next Darna). I’m so overwhelmed. I’m really happy to be here. I feel so blessed to be a Kapamilya.”

In August, Bandera reported that the movie adaptation of “Darna”, which was to be directed by Jerrold Tarog, was scrapped due to the movie’s big budget, as well as circumstances brought by the COVID-19 pandemic.

ABS-CBN later clarified that the movie was not scrapped, but “postponed indefinitely.”
