QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – The longest-running teleserye on Philippine television will finally come to an end!
FPJ’s “Ang Probinsyano” which started airing in September of 2015 on ABS-CBN, will bow out with its final epidsode on March 30, 2020, coinciding with the franchise expiration of the broadcast network owned by the Lopez oligarchy.
While there are desperate efforts to convince Congress to renew the franchise, including an online petition started by the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines (NUJP), the producers of the popular teleserye said that they’ve all but run out of script ideas to keep it going.
One of the mainstays of the show, Miss Susan Roces, mother of Senator Grace Poe, told The Adobo Chronicles that in the final episode, the main character Cardo, played by Coco Martin, will finally die — killed by the bad elements.
Sources close to the powers that be at ABS-CBN said that should the network’s franchise be renewed, the plan is to start an all-new, improved teleserye titled “Six In The City,” starring Vice Ganda, Lea Salonga, Anne Curtis, Agot Isidro, Ogie Alcasid, and Mutya Ng Masa Doris Bigornia.
