MANILA (August 28, 2020) – With so much to watch and stream these days, keeping our playlists on point is key to making sure we’re not only watching the best shows, but can also keep up with the trendiest shows of the season. At the top of the trending list these days, right alongside K-dramas and Pinoy teleseryes, are the fresh crop of BL shows that are now all the rage.
WeTV and iflix are riding the BL wave with a whole slew of hot new shows this September and October. Here’s our promise – the shows will not only turn up on all the feels, but will also deliver on the drama and the romance.

The first episode drops on WeTV and iflix on September 02 at 9:00PM to stream for FREE, with new episodes dropping every week.
At the end of Love By Chance’s first season, the future of would-be couple Tin and Can is in limbo, with one of them left heartbroken. There was so much clamor for some closure to these characters’ stories that they are now at the center of the show’s second season. Popular BL actors Plan Rathavit and Mean Phiravich reprise their roles as Can and Tin, respectively, as they explore what it means to be in love while experiencing the highs and lows of their very first relationship. The show also marks Mean Phiravich’s final appearance in a BL project, as he takes on more mainstream projects.
