Ngayon at Kailanman (International title: Now and Forever) is a 2018 Philippine drama television series starring Julia Barretto and Joshua Garcia. The series premiered on ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida evening block and worldwide via The Filipino Channel from August 20, 2018 to January 18, 2019, replacing Bagani, and was replaced by The General's Daughter.


Beneath the wealth and name of the Cortes Clan, one of the country's richest families lies a deep dark secret, and nothing will stand in the way of Eva, a girl on the verge of womanhood, to get to the truth and reclaim her rightful place as heiress to the family's fortune and that of the Nostalgia—a necklace of immense beauty and value, witness to the family's history and has been one of their most important possessions for almost a century. However, even the best quests for justice can unravel in the wake of a love story that reaches far beyond this life — with the Cortes matriarch Stella's sons Inno and Oliver. As Eva fight the people running after the Cortes wealth and name, and as the Nostalgia find its proper place upon her neck, she discovers what is truly important in life — family, forgiveness, redemption and Love.[2]
