Julia Montes is joining FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano as the new leading lady of rumored boyfriend Coco Martin in the sixth year of the country’s longest-running action-drama series.
Dreamscape Entertainment confirmed the news on Friday (July 30) after it released on social media photos of the actress attending the show’s story conference and pictorial at ABS-CBN.
Julia and Coco’s TV reunion came nearly 10 years after their first pairing in the phenomenal TV drama Walang Hanggan in 2012.
Aside from Julia, FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano will also introduce new characters to be played by Tommy Abuel, Rosanna Roces, Vangie Labalan, Michael Flores, Chai Fonacier, Marela Torre, Elora Españo and Joseph Marco.
The series officially enters its sixth year this September. The show and Filipino viewers have marked many milestones together over the years, from when it became the country’s most-watched TV show until it pivoted to digital last year.
The show airs on Kapamilya Online Live on Facebook and YouTube, where it has repeatedly shattered its own record in terms of live concurrent viewership. In 2020, FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano also became the first Pinoy teleserye to livestream on the video-streaming site.
More people worldwide are also able to watch Cardo’s story through The Filipino Channel and Netflix, and its airing in Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam, Thailand, and 41 counties in Africa.
