The highest-rating TV series of ABS-CBN, “Juan de la Cruz” will air its finale this coming October 25 after its successful run for almost a year. The primetime teleserye that features Coco Martin as Juan de la Cruz is now down to its last three weeks.
The primetime hit, starring actor Coco Martin in the title role, is now down to its last three weeks with its final episode scheduled to air on October 25, a statement from ABS-CBN released on Thursday said.
Martin admitted that “Juan dela Cruz,” which premiered last February, has helped him become a better actor and more responsible Filipino.
Apart from his work on the series, Martin was also active in several “Juan Fun School Day” activities, which provided school supplies to the less fortunate students in different parts of the country.
“Dahil sa ‘Juan dela Cruz’ hindi lamang ako nakapagpapasaya ng kapwa dahil sa pagiging aktor ko. Kakaibang saya ang nadudulot sa akin kapag naituturing akong inspirasyon ng ibang tao, lalo na ng mga kabataan,” Martin said in the statement.
“Nagpapasalamat ako sa pagkakataong naibigay sa akin ng show na personal na makadaupang-palad ang viewers namin at makapagbahagi na rin ng tulong sa kanila sa abot ng aking makakaya,” he added.
Martin also took the opportunity to thank the viewers who loyally watched the show for the past eight months, making it the most-watched primetime series in both urban and rural households nationwide.
“Sa loob ng halos isang taon, sinamahan nila si Juan sa bawat pagsubok ng kanyang buhay—mula pagkabata, hanggang sa pagiging Tagabantay at ngayong alam na niya na siya ang Anak ng Dilim,” he said, referring to the evolution of his character in the series.
But Martin said viewers still have a lot to watch for in its last three weeks.
“Marami pang rebelasyong gugulat sa ating lahat sa last three weeks ng show,” he said, hinting that there may be more characters who will die.
“Juan dela Cruz” airs weeknights after “TV Patrol” on ABS-CBN’s Primetime Bida block.
