Dubbed as the comeback serye of the Queen Of Pinoy Soap Opera, Ms. Judy Ann Santos, after 3 years of not doing such one, Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala is down to its last week with the finale set to air on August 23, Friday. Honestly, I am disappointed and saddened by this.
It began airing on June 17, 2013 replacing the top-rating program Ina Kapatid Anak. The first few episodes were taped, according to my source, a year ago so this makes the series one year in the making. This was supposed to air last year but due to the amount of new shows that ABS-CBN has lined up that time, HKLM (I just abbreviated it to make it short) was put on-hold. And if my memory serves me right, its lead star, Juday, was tasked to host the Philippine edition of Master Chef for Kids which caused her to sacrifice the series for a short period of time. Meaning she was not able to tape some more episodes. Enough of the little background about the show. Let’s get down to the main issue: Bakit mawawala na sya?
Originally planned for a 13-week run, it got cut to 12 weeks due to the time slot issue as the network’s latest teleserye offering, Muling Buksan Ang Puso, was about to premiere that time. So what the management did, and I guess Juday as well, gave way to them by giving their time slot. But these past few weeks, viewers were surprised and the loyal fans of Juday got the shock of their lives when they found out that the series is about to end very soon. Reasons were not immediately disclosed until the news about Got To Believe’s airing, one of ABS-CBN’s upcoming teleseryes, surfaced.
To cut the story short, when Juday found out that her teleserye will be moved again to a late time slot, she asked the management to just end the show abruptly instead of changing its time slot again.
Truthfully speaking, I got sad after learning about the news cause I love this show so much. It’s one of the best crafted teleseryes that ABS-CBN has produced. It doesn’t have a typical storyline and what makes it worth watching is that it has a lot of twists and surprises. And of course, how could I forget the cast? They are all perfect for this. And of course Juday. Well, it’s Juday. The Judy Ann Santos that we’ve known since Mara Clara back in the day. Nuff said.
Don’t miss the final week of Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala guys!
