ABS-CBN has released the first teaser trailer of its upcoming primetime drama series Magpahanggang Wakas starring Jericho Rosales and Arci Munoz.
Arci is cast as Aryann, a provincial girl dreaming of becoming a lawyer one day. Jericho portrays the role of Waldo, Aryann's childhood sweetheart. The series, directed by FM Reyes, was formerly titled Never Ever Say Goodbye.
Joining them is seasoned actor John Estrada who is believed to form a love triangle with the lead stars, but details about his character are yet to be revealed.
Gelli de Belen, Danita Paner, Lito Pimentel, Liza Lorena, Maika Rivera, Rita Avila, Marco Gumabao, and Jomari Angeles (who was part of the indie film Ma'Rosa) are the other cast members of the new show.
Arci and Jericho have sweet moments as they chase each other and swim in the ocean.
In an interview with ABS-CBN, Arci revealed that they shot their scenes in Caramoan located in Camarines Sur, Bicol.
In the teaser, Waldo (Jericho Rosales) can be heard saying, "Ang kastilyong buhangin, puwedeng gibain ng alon, sirain ng hangin, wasakin ng panahon. Pero hindi ang pagmamahalan nating dalawa."
In a previous interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Arci admitted that she felt lucky to have Echo as her leading man in the series. She explained, "Isa sa pinakamagaling na artista na kilala ko, kaya wala akong masasabi. It’s a privilege."
She added, "Sobrang close ko yun, para kong kapatid si Echs, kalaro ko yun! Kapag kunyari, magkahiwalay kami ng taping, may mga eksena na wala siya, malungkot. Tapos sasabihin ni Direk, 'O, ba't ka malungkot?' Wala akong kalaro kasi nga kalaro ko si Echs. Para kaming mga bata!"
The Kapamilya Network has yet to reveal the airing date of pilot episode but it is believed that the Jericho-Arci drama series will replace Born For You starring Elmo Magalona and Janella Salvador.
