What is the reason why “Darna” by Jane De Leon was stopped from airing in Indonesia?

JANE DE LEON – ABS-CBN releases a statement about the series “Darna” that was stopped to air on Indonesian television.

Last week, it has been reported that ‘Mars Ravelo’s Darna’ is brought to Indonesia for an international audience. The series is dubbed in Bahasa as it was launched on Indonesia’s free-to-air TV network ANTV.

ANTV’s Chief Program and Communications Officer Kiki Zulkarnain was delighted to bring the show to their regular programming and they were hopeful that it could give their viewers inspiration.

Darna is an addition to the line of PH series that have made it to be aired abroad like  “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano,” “Sino ang Maysala?: Mea Culpa,” “La Luna Sangre,” “Since I Found You,” “Ang sa Iyo ay Akin” and “The Legal Wife” in Africa; the 2015 remake of “Pangako Sa ‘Yo” in Latin America; “The Blood Sisters” in France’s overseas territories, and “Marry Me, Marry You,” “On the Wings of Love” and “Halik” in Malaysia.

However, just recently, rumors about the series being canceled in Indonesia surfaced online. According to the rumors, the series did not perform well. Also, there were scenes that were not aligned with their culture the reason why it was stopped from airing.

In a statement sent to PEP, the reason why Darna was stopped from airing is that analog TV broadcasting is being shifted to digital TV broadcasting.

“ANTV determined that it would be better for viewers to enjoy ‘Darna’ once the transition to digital TV broadcasting has been completed. New airing details will be announced soon,” it furthered.

It turns out that this was just temporary. It will be back once its digital TV broadcasting is fixed.
