After 17 weeks of doing online shows, All-Out Sundays is heading back to television.
The production team of the GMA-7 Sunday noontime variety show announced the good news on Instagram yesterday, July 6, 2020.
According to the post, All-Out Sundays will continue holding its “Stay Home Party,” where the cast performs, banters with one another, and plays games via video call.
Instead of streaming only on Facebook and YouTube, the “Stay Home Party” will also air on GMA-7 starting July 12 at 12:45 p.m.
Among the regular performers of All-Out Sundays are Alden Richards, Christian Bautista, Aicelle Santos, Glaiza de Castro, Julie Anne San Jose, Rayver Cruz, Rita Daniela, Ken Chan, Gabbi Garcia, and Derrick Monasterio.
NO LIVE SHOWS IN THE NEAR FUTURE
However, the announcement did not indicate if and when the production will start holding live shows in its studio at the GMA Network Center.
On June 30, 2020, PEP Troika reported that All-Out Sundays will return on air starting July 12, with some celebrities doing shows in the studio, while others are appearing via Zoom video call.
The show has not gone live since March 14, 2020, when GMA-7 announced the temporary suspension of its drama and entertainment programs.
This was a day ahead of the March 15 implementation of the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ), a preventive measure to combat the spread of COVID-19.
All-Out Sundays, which just premiered on January 5, 2020, was one of the shows affected by this measure.
At the time, it had just aired 10 episodes.
All-Out Sundays began airing replays on March 15, 2020, then started holding its “Stay Home Party” on the same day. The online show streams on GMA-7’s official YouTube and Facebook pages.
Rival program ASAP Natin ‘To has already started doing live studio shows since June 14, 2020, via ABS-CBN's Kapamilya Channel.
