Philippine drama can be classified into different forms and genres, the most popular is the teleserye which is a television form of melodramatic serialized fiction. It's rooted from two words "tele", short for television, and "serye", a Tagalog term for series.
Teleserye is now used as the generic term for most Filipino soap operas on television, although the term officially came into existence in 2000 when ABS-CBN aired its first official form of teleserye, Pangako sa 'Yo. Prior to this, Filipino soap operas were called either telenovelas (and still is referred to as such) and soap operas.
If you are not yet one of the millions of Filipinos who are teleserye fanatics or you failed to watch some episodes of your favorite teleseryes, get them here. Now, there’s no more reason why you are not updated of the latest twists of the popular teleseryes on Philippine television.
