The first season left its audience raving for more as it ended on a shocking note – Kendra is alive. Now that she’s back, she will do everything in her power to ruin Lilian and Jaime’s relationship, as well as take back the life that the three Donnas now enjoy. More secrets will be unraveled, new characters will come into light, and the endless pursuit of happiness for the Claveria family lingers. How will they remain strong amidst the many challenges life throws at them?
Esteemed director Gina Alajar shared that while the story continues, it will be significantly different from the first season. “Of course hindi maaalis yung awayan nina Lillian at Kendra. Hindi rin siyempre mawawala yung awayan nina Lillian at Bethany played by Sheryl Cruz,” she said. “Magkakaroon din ng awayan ang mga bata. Si Brianna at si Mayi, mayroon. Hindi natin sure kung alin doon ang susundan ng viewers but we make it a point na maging iba ‘yung show sa mga nagawa na namin.”
She further emphasized that they will delve more into the complexity of Kendra as the antagonist, “Mas ipapaliwang din dito kung saan ‘yung pinanggagalingan ng galit ni Kendra. Kung bakit gusto niya makuha ‘yung crown ni Lady Prima, bakit hindi niya ma-give-up ‘yung pagmamahal ni Jaime kahit na harap-harapan na sinasabi sa kanya na ‘hindi kita mahal.’ Lahat iyon, malinaw at inisa-isa namin dito sa book 2.”
This original series is headed by the SVP for Entertainment Group Lilybeth G. Rasonable, VP for Drama Cheryl Ching-Sy, Senior Program Manager Redgynn S. Alba and Executive Producer Erwin Hilado.
