Teleserye Queen Judy Ann Santos will remain as a Kapamilya, Dreamscape Entertainment Adprom head Biboy Arboleda confirmed to Journal Online after reports that Juday will be transferring networks surfaced.
According to reports, Judy Ann Santos will sign a new contract with ABS-CBN anytime soon. There are also ongoing talks between ABS-CBN executives and Judy Ann’s camp about the said contract renewal and the projects that she will be doing.
Direk Lauren Dyogi, ABS-CBN TV Production Entertainment head, confirmed via Twitter that the network have wonderful offers for Juday.
“Hopefully Judai accepts the new project we offered her. Bago na naman for her. Judai is well-loved. Thanks for giving her your full support. I think she will stay, [we] will pray for that,” Direk Lauren said in a series of tweet replies.
Direk Lauren also clarified the issue about Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala being cut short. He said that the creators don’t want to extend the story unnecessarily. As one of the best crafted soaps of ABS-CBN, they wanted the story to be short but powerful, the reason it will only run for 13 weeks.
However, it was Judy Ann who requested to end the soap’s run two months short of its planned airing, instead of being moved to a later timeslot (4th in primetime after the evening newscast) to give way for the KathNiel teleserye Got to Believe.
Judy Ann Santos teleserye Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala will air its finale episode on August 23 and Dreamscape Entertainment is trusting Juday a new teleserye after she has renewed her contract with ABS-CBN.
Meanwhile, Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla’s Got to Believe is expected to premiere on August 26 right after Juan Dela Cruz. Family drama Muling Buksan Ang Puso will take Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala’s timeslot and will be pitted against My Husband’s Lover.
