In 100 Words: A Second MariMar Remake on GMA

Another local adaptation of ‘MariMar’ is now in the works.

GMA recently released a few teasers that hint towards a new version of the Thalia-starred telenovela. The original ‘MariMar’ became a surprise hit in the mid-90s on RPN, and was later remade by the Kapuso network in 2007 with Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes.

The two short teasers below were released within days of each other.

It is presumed that GMA decided to make a second adaptation of ‘MariMar’ in response to ABS-CBN’s upcoming remake of ‘Pangako Sa ‘Yo’, starring Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla. Both series are expected to premiere in either the third or fourth quarter of this year, depending on the flow of the production.

More information on the ‘MariMar’ remake will come in the next few months, so stay tuned.

    • Mukhang napagod ring maghanap ng GMA ng mga ideas for a teleserye, kaya napadali ang pagrecycle kay MariMar. Parang similar situation sa 2nd Darna remake nila, napadali rin.

    • JRDV says:

      ewan ko sa GMA. mas priority pa nila yung remakes ng kanilang much recent teleseryes unlike sa older ones.

      • Saka those recent ones were responsible for their ratings turnaround at the time. Kaso at this point, desperado na ang GMA kaya mga short fixes na lang ang ginagawa nila.

  1. IMO: I’m actually getting tired of a remake of Marimar after eight years top billed by DongYan. If the remake is materialized, I ask one humorous question: “Who’s going to voice Fulgoso, the dog of Marimar?”

      • Janine says:

        yeah, desperado na sila MariMar is one of their highest rated shows kaya ire-remake nila kahit 8 years pa lang..ang question lang mapapantayan kaya nito yung 1st remake?

      • Thanks for the obvious answer, Nameless. I am thinking of the voiceover of Fulgoso on this remake, despite of my tiresome to tune in.

    • Nameless says:

      Mas maganda pa kung si Betong o Jose Manalo na lang ang mag-voice over para sa wonder dog ni MariMar.

      But wait. Kung Ire-remake nga talaga ng GMA ang drama na ito, tataas na naman ang meme exposure ni Senyora Santibanez sa social media, who is known for being so bitter.

    MariMar was eight years ago pa… kung gusto ng GMA na gumawa ng remake, bakit di nila i-reboot ang “Kung Mawawala Ka” (since naging successful ito before) o di kaya “Habang Kapiling Ka”?

  3. MariMar? Huwag na yan. 7 – 8 years old is not old enough for a remake, IMO. It should be at least 12 – 15 years old. It’d be better if GMA would have made a remake of any popular 90s teleserye or movie, like “Muling Ibalik ang Tamis ng Pagibig”, “Ikaw Na Sana” or “Del Tierro”.

      • Better watch the NYE celebrations of past years and see kung bakit hanggang ngayon may sense of yabang itong GMA despite the massive financial losses. Plus their boasts tungkol sa pagiging No. 1 station nila in the Philippines, when in fact hanggang Luzon lang ang kaya nila.

        Anything that GMA does in this day and age is out of desperation, out of claims na kaya daw pa rin nilang makipagsabayan sa Dos.

      • dapat iremake ng GMA-7 yung mga teleserye na rpoduced ng TAPE, Inc. before like yung agila, kirara, heredero, del tierro, rio del mar, kung mamahalin mo lang ako etc…

        yung agila pwedeng i-remake ng abs-cbn yan total naging afternoon teleserye noon ng abs-cbn ang agila from 1989 hanggang 1992. nagtapos ang storya ng agila noong 1992 dahil sa namatay yung isang cast member na si helen vela.

      • However, they are still properties of TAPE Inc. And since they have an existing blocktime deal with GMA for Eat Bulaga and The Ryzza Mae Show, the only network that would have the blessing of TAPE for these teleseryes is GMA itself. Whether you like it or not, it’s possible that Agila may end up as a remake on GMA rather than ABS, provided they get permission from TAPE.

        But as it stands, hanggang EB at Ryzza na lang ang TAPE. Wala silang plano ngayon na bumalik sa pagproduce ng mga teleserye. Sorry, but GMA can only do so much.

    dati, masyadong bongga ang GMA dramas kasi powerhouse ang mga casting nito (e.g. “Kung Mawawala Ka” – Sunshine Dizon, Eddie Garcia, Hilda Koronel, etc. “Habang Kapiling Ka” – Angelika de la Cruz, Snooky Serna, Albert Martinez, etc. “Ang Iibigin Ay Ikaw” – Alice Dixson, Richard Gomez, Christopher de Leon, etc.) kumpara sa mga present dramas…

    • Nowadays, it is ABS-CBN who has the powerhouse casts. Times and fortunes have changed for both networks. Hindi na talaga kaya ng GMA na magkaroon ng powerhouse casts for obvious reasons.

      • At hindi rin sila maka-attract ng freelancers who can lend supporting roles to any series. It’s obvious na cash-strapped ang GMA, but they keep denying it.

  5. Janine says:

    yes, and parang mababa din kasi mag bayad sa talents ang GMA. illan lang yung talents nila na nasa highest taxpayers. kaya siguro walalng lumilipat na sikat talaga.
