GMA-7’s top-rating afternoon drama, Prima Donnas, is set to resume its airing on TV.
GMA Drama’s social media pages announced that the series will return on August 17, at 3:25 p.m, its original timeslot.
Prima Donnas is top-billed by Jillian Ward, Sofia Pablo, Althea Ablan, Elijah Alejo, Katrina Halili, Wendell Ramos, and Aiko Melendez.
But before airing fresh episodes, there will be a run of replays for nine weeks.
Prima Donnas last aired on March 18, 2020, two days after the enhanced community quarantine was imposed in Metro Manila.
The show managed to air three fresh episodes that were already taped before GMA-7 halted production for its entertainment programs.
Tapings of TV shows in all production outfits were stopped to combat the spread of COVID-19.
At present, reruns of GMA-7’s remake of Stairway To Heaven occupies the timeslot of Prima Donnas.
Prior to Stairway To Heaven, it was occupied by Ika-6 Na Utos and Onanay.
In the meantime, the cast of Prima Donnas has been holding an online show called Prima Donnas: Watch From Home.
The four teen leads—Jillian, Sofia, Althea, and Elijah—also did a guest appearance in PEP.ph’s online talk show, PEPLive, in May 2020.
It was the first time the four young stars appeared on a web show after their series temporarily stopped airing.
Prima Donnas is the first current teleserye of GMA-7 to resume its run.
The Kapuso network has also yet to announce when the show will resume taping for its fresh episodes.
Premiering on August 19, 2019, it initially had a rough start in the ratings game.
On October 21, 2019, it finally beat its rival, Kadenang Ginto.
On February 1, 2020, GMA-7 started airing Prima Donnas from Monday to Saturday.
