The (mis)adventures of Kara & Mia are coming to an end this Friday.
Debuting on February 18, 2018, Kara Mia stars Barbie Forteza & Mika dela Cruz as twins Kara & Mia who share the same body, with Kara’s face at the front and Mia’s face at the back, but different personalities.
Just like its predecessors which went head-to-head with FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, it was no match for Cardo Dalisay’s immortality. However, it performed well, earning ratings within 9-12% (based on AGB Nielsen NUTAM), and managed to produce 92 episodes once it wraps up on Friday, becoming a few of Ang Probinsyano’s challengers to go beyond 80 episodes.. The positive feedback from viewers earned the series an extension.
Knowing that fantasy is one of GMA’s strength, Kara Mia is one of them. Barbie is no stranger when it comes to fantasy, as she used to star in a number of fantasy series before, notably Pilyang Kerubin. Mika embraced her bida-kontrabida role so well, though it took her some time to get used to go behind Barbie’s back. Not to mention that the series is still a trend online, thanks to Mia’s face. A couple of weeks after it made its debut, netizens became aware of how Kara & Mia act.
The series may have become another victim to Ang Probinsyano. But avid viewers will consider it as an achievement for Barbie & Mika. For now, Kara Mia’s final week will be intense, yet enchanting. It remains to be seen if either one or both of them will survive.
