John Arcilla, Sid Lucero, Pokwang, and father-son Lito and Mark Lapid will join the new chapter of FPJ's Ang Probinsyano.

John Arcilla returns to ABS-CBN after playing Hagorn in GMA-7's fantasy series Encantadia.

The actor is set to join the new chapter of Coco Martin's action drama teleserye FPJ's Ang Probinsyano.

This is according to an Instagram post by Dreamscape Entertainment head Deo Endrinal.

Ironically, Encantadia currently goes head-to-head with FPJ's Ang Probinsyano's timeslot.

The Kapuso epic telefantasya will air its finale episode tomorrow, May 19.

Aside from John, Sid Lucero also returns to ABS-CBN for the show's new chapter.

Other new cast members include: Mitch Valdes, Angel Aquino, Ejay Falcon, Jhong Hilario, Long Mejia, and Pokwang.
