MANILA – Filipino viewers kicked off the month of June in style as they trooped to digital streaming platform Amazon Prime Video to watch the crime-thriller series “Cattleya Killer.”

The psychological thriller show debuted on Prime Video with authority on Thursday as it became the most watched series on the platform. 

Netizens quickly turned to Twitter to rave about “Cattleya Killer” and praise the overall production. 

“#CattleyaKiller series is really good. Ang sakit sa ulo mag-isip kung ano talaga yung plot. Ang ganda ng cinematography niya, parang movie lagi kada episode. Sana may season 2 @ABSCBN. Ang galing ni Arjo at ng lahat ng casts. Walang tapon!” said by one Twitter user.

“Grabeehh! Natapos ko na lahat nang episodes. Totoo, unpredictable hanggang sa dulo. Solid casting and plot!” another netizen commented.

Arjo Atayde, who plays the lead role Anton dela Rosa, a police officer, shared in an interview with “TV Patrol” his excitement for the premiere.
