The upcoming anime series is based on the fantasy, crime-horror comic book created by Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldisimo. The story, which is set in Manila, follows Alexandra Trese, a detective who deals with crimes of supernatural origin in a city where mythical creatures of Philippine folklore live in hiding among humans.
Fans previously just got a sneak peek of Trese in a snippet reel of upcoming anime shows coming in 2021 last April with a quick shot at the very end of the minute-long video, but no release date was announced.
Following the clip's release online, Netflix Philippines’ shared a longer promo video for new shows streaming this June 2021, confirming that the original anime series would stream next month in the Philippines.

“Bukas ng alas nuwebe, sabi ng isang duwende: ‘Buksan ang iyong mata, talasan ang tainga.’ Mayroong hiwagang bumabalot sa patikim na paparating — Hindi mo pa natutuklasan, at maaaring hindi inaasahan. Wag kalimutang bigkasing ang mga katagang: ‘Tabi-tabi po,'” the poem reads.
Trese will premiere on Netflix on June 11, 2021.
