    The show will be patterned on the original AKB48 concept, which likely means that public votes will determine the members. Although other details such as the show’s title, mechanics, and a release date are not yet announced, it is believed that the auditions already happened back in December 2016.

    MNL48 would be one of the newest AKB48 sister groups outside of Japan in addition to already existing units in Jakarta, Indonesia, and in Shanghai, China.
