Actress and former Dagupan councilor Maybelyn dela Cruz is set to make a comeback on television after eight years.
She will appear in an episode of Wish Ko Lang! this Saturday, November 6.
Maybelyn will be joined by Gabby Eigenmann, Jenny Miller, Bryce Eusebio, and Irma Adlawan for the episode.
It tells the story of a rich son (Gabby) who has a secret relationship with their housemaid (Maybelyn). He is disowned by his mother (Irma) when he chooses to marry their maid instead of their rich family friend (Jenny).
Years later, Gabby and Maybelyn’s only son, played by Bryce, meets a serious accident. The couple is left with no choice but to ask Gabby's mom for help.
Maybelyn first posted a photo from behind the scenes of her Wish Ko Lang! episode on September 24.
In the photo, Maybelyn was with Gabby and her directors, Rommel Penesa and Aurel Ayson.
She wrote in the caption, “IT'S A WRAP!
“Grateful to the whole team of Wish Ko Lang for the opportunity to be in front of the cam again.
“Thank you direk Rommel, direk Aurel, and Kuya Gabby! Always fun working with you!”
