“2 Good 2 Be True” marks the “teen royalty’s” comeback in five years since their last show, “La Luna Sangre,” and is only just their second romantic comedy after 2013’s “Got To Believe.”

“I think mas marami kasi kaming nagawa na romcom films. Mas pelikula ang ginagawa naming romcom,” Daniel mused in an interview with When In Manila. Because of this, he knows that fans can expect a lot of new things that they have yet to see in any other KathNiel project.

Sa dami naming ginawa ni Kathryn, ano nga ba ang pwede naming ibigay na bago pa, hindi ba?” he said. “[Pero] pangalawa palang namin na romcom na series ito. Daming pwede pang abangan na bago. Syempre, unang una, iba naman ang kwento, iba naman ‘yung characters namin ni Kathryn dito. And first time din namin ni Direk Mae na mag-serye from simula hanggang dulo. So yeah, dami pa naming pwedeng i-offer na bago dito.

Meanwhile, Kathryn admitted that ensuring that this project is unlike anything that she and Daniel have done before is quite a challenge. “‘Yun ‘yung pinaka-challenging sa lahat—anong bagong ma-ooffer,” she said. “Hopefully, nabigyan naman ng bagong flavor dito since iba naman ‘yung dynamics ng characters namin ni Deej and ‘yun naman ‘yung goal ever since may project: to make it different.”

“2 Good 2 Be True” will premiere on Netflix on May 13, Friday, and will air on TV on May 16, Monday, on ABS-CBN.
