Two versions will be released!
After streaming on ABS-CBN’s YouTube and Facebook page last May, Ang Huling El Bimbo is coming back online, this time through TFC.
The streaming online event ran from May 8-9, garnering more than 7 million viewers in a span of 48 hours. The initiative raised more than 12 million in donations for the benefit of ABS-CBN Foundation’s Pantawid ng Pag-ibig.
This time around, the production will be available on TFC Online through pay-per-view for viewers overseas–in the US, Canada, the UK, Middle East, Australia, Japan, and Taiwan, from September 15 to November 15. Pre-selling rates are US$4.99 from August 17-30, and US$7.99 from September 15-November 15. The production can be watched within 48 hours upon rental.
For this streaming, two sets of casts will be available for viewing. The first set features Tanya Manalang as Young Joy, Reb Atadero as Young Hector, Vic Robinson as Young Emman, Lance Reblando as Young Anthony, David Ezra as Hector, Myke Salomon as Emman, Rafa Siguion-Reyna as Anthony, Carla Guevara Laforteza as Joy, Elisha Campos as Ligaya, and Paolo O’Hara as Banlao.

Both sets were filmed from their respective closing shows.
