Parasite Island is a 2019 Philippine fantasy drama television series starring Rafael Rosell, Bernard Palanca, Michael Flores, Bianca Manalo, Ria Atayde and Desiree del Valle. The series aired on ABS-CBN’s Yes Weekend! Sunday block from September 8 to December 1, 2019, replacing Hiwaga ng Kambat.
In a remote island village off the coast of mainland Luzon, a legend about mysterious, invasive and parasitic leeches that turn people into zombie-like state intertwines the stories of its past victim, the village man, and the current one, the family of a young father on the edge of falling apart due to a festering infighting.
