After making waves, GMA Network’s “Legal Wives” is set to conclude its run this Friday, Nov. 12.
But it seems that fans of the program are not ready to say goodbye to the family drama series.
On Facebook, fans clamor for Book 2 of the inspiring TV program. Some comments:
“Bakit ganon parang bitin pa rin kahit last day na bukas. Siguro may book 2. Sana naman magkaroon ng book 2.”
“Roda Quinding Delamar Sariul parang marami pang kailangan i-tackle. Gusto ko sana maging maligaya rin si Edgar at least ma-meet nya yung babae para ka kanya.”
“GMA sana gumawa pa din kayo ng teleserye about Islam.”
“Ewan ko, pero nawalan ako ng gana Kumain . Habang nanonood… Lesson learned Kumain muna bago manood bukas.. Sana hnd na mapanakit bukas.”
“I’d like to commend Derek Monasterio for his controlled, tempered and intelligent acting. The emotions, body language and his dialogue were just so perfect. Small role yet remarkable. Congratulations!”
The revolutionary series features a casting coup top-billed by no less than Kapuso Drama King Dennis Trillo as Ismael Makadatu, Alice Dixson (Amirah Alonte), the virtuous and pious daughter of a sultan and Ismael’s first wife; Andrea Torres (Diane San Luis), Isamel’s second wife who is a feisty modern Catholic woman and Ismael’s love; Bianca Umali (Farrah Valeandong), a smart and innocent lady who becomes Ismael’s third wife in hopes of saving her family’s reputation.
Dennis has considered this series as his primetime comeback. “Napakalaki ng project na ito para palampasin. Maganda ang latag ng kuwento, magagaling din ang lahat ng kasama ko na artista. Manghihinayang ako kung hindi ito napunta sa akin. Gusto kong ibahagi at iparating sa mga manonood na bukod sa makulay na kultura ng mga Mranaw, kagigiliwan nila ang bawat characters na siguradong kapupulutan nila ng aral.”
Alice, in turn, hopes that their series bridged Filipinos and shed some light on the culture of Muslim people, “They’re actually very loving, God-fearing people. They have the same goals and desires. They have strong family bonds. Magandang paraan itong TV show na ito para ipakita kung ano ‘yung differences at kung ano din ‘yung likenesses natin as Filipinos.”
Andrea, on the other hand, reveals how different and challenging her role is in the series and how she works her way into channeling her, “I think ang pinaka-challenge is to find that balance kasi there are so many layers to her character, napakadami niyang pagdadaanan dito. So binantayan po namin ni Direk Zig na you’ll always understand where she’s coming from and why she’s doing those things. Love is her weakness but that’s also where she’ll get strength to fight back.”
Bianca shares her gratitude for landing the role of Farrah and looks forward to learning more as an actress through the show, “I am very honored na ako po ay pinagkatiwalaan na mapasama sa cast ng proyektong ito. Nakakakaba po ang makipagsabayan sa mga beteranong aktor but at the same time, natutuwa po ako na makatrabaho silang lahat.”
