After news of ABS-CBN's shutdown erupted earlier today, May 5, 2020, its top-rating program, FPJ's Ang Probinsyano, becomes a trending topic on Twitter.

Top-billed by Coco Martin as Cardo Dalisay, the series has been running on ABS-CBN's prime-time block for four years and six months.

It premiered on September 28, 2015, and temporarily went off-air on March 16, 2020, due to the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ).

But with the expiration of ABS-CBN's franchise on May 4, 2020, and the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) issuing a Cease and Desist order against ABS-CBN, the fate of Cardo now hangs in the air.

Hence, "Ang Probinsyano" and "Cardo" set Twitter abuzz.
