The third season will follow Bianca as Alex, a “half-human and half-Engkanto who seeks to find the original source of a dwindling haven plant that will heal the Engkantos’ thirst for human flesh.”

It will be shot in the Philippines and will have eight episodes.

The season will be directed by Mikhail Red, who directed Birdshot and Eerie.

It will air on HBO GO and HBO in 2020.
