Coco Martin’s long-running “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” will be replaced by “May Bukas Pa” starring Zaijian Jaranilla.
Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano’s “Make It With You” will be replaced by the hit romantic series “On The Wings of Love” featuring Nadine Lustre and James Reid.
Lastly, “A Soldier’s Heart” starring Gerald Anderson will be replaced by iWant original mystery thriller “I Am U,” starring Julia Barretto until March 20. It is unknown what will air in place of it afterward.
“We assure our viewers that the changes are only temporary. We will resume our regular programming when conditions improve and the safety and welfare of our people will not be compromised,” said ABS-CBN in their statement.
