MANILA — "Malapit nang ipalabas!"
This was the playful answer of "Love Thy Woman" in its comeback teaser, in reference to lead star Kim Chiu's viral statement-turned-music hit, "Bawal Lumabas."
Released on Friday, the teaser shows memorable lines from the series, which will resume airing on June 15, 2:30 p.m. on Kapamilya Channel.
"Love Thy Woman" was among the ABS-CBN programs that halted production in mid-March amid the coronavirus pandemic. Its return was further held off with the government shutdown of ABS-CBN's broadcast operations in May.
Featuring an all-star cast — Christopher de Leon, Eula Valdez, Sunshine Cruz, Ruffa Gutierrez, Xian Lim, and Yam Concepcion — "Love Thy Woman" centers on the rivalry between two sides of a Filipino-Chinese family.
It's one of several ABS-CBN programs resuming via Kapamilya Channel, alongside "FJP's Ang Probinsyano," "It's Showtime," "ASAP Natin 'To," and "The Voice Teens," among others.
Kapamilya Channel will be available from June 13 on SKY, Cablelink, G Sat, and most member-cable operators of the Philippine Cable Television Association (PCTA) nationwide.
