Elmo Magalona's replacement in the upcoming series The Good Son is officially revealed.
Some of the cast members of the show formerly titled Kung Kailangan Mo Ako were seen during its first teaser launched yesterday, August 15.
It was shown that Jerome Ponce has taken over Elmo's role in the series starring Joshua Garcia.
The short teaser showed the troubled relationship between a son (Joshua) and his absentee-father (Albert Martinez).
When the father of Joshua's character died, it was revealed that he had a legal family.
Joshua's family is composed of Mylene Dizon and McCoy de Leon, while the legal family is comprised of Eula Valdes, Jerome, and Nash Aguas.
The trailer did not show yet the characters that will be portrayed by Elisse Joson and Alexa Ilacad.
However, in a May 2017 report of Abante Tonite, it was published that Loisa Andalio will portray the role originally intended for Janella Salvador.
Through a text message, Dreamscape Entertainment AdProm Head Eric John Salut confirmed to PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) that Loisa is indeed part of The Good Son.
Photos of Loisa taping for the project were already posted on social media.
Joshua, Jerome, Nash, and McCoy have also completed their pictorial for the series.
This show serves as a reunion for Joshua, Loisa, and Jerome, who worked together in the afternoon series Nasaan Ka Nang Kailangan Kita.
Jerome and Loisa were also paired in the Wansapanataym installment "Candy's Crush."
During Pinoy Big Brother: Lucky 7's run, it was revealed that Jerome used to be Elisse's ex-boyfriend, who is now rumored to be romantically involved with love team partner Mccoy.
In July 2017, Elmo and Janella first revealed that they are no longer part of the series.
Janella reasoned out, "Sa latest version, ibang-iba na yung roles naming dalawa from what they were before. That’s why it was decided na hindi na kami tutuloy because doing so wouldn’t be beneficial for the show or us."
No airing date has been announced yet for The Good Son.
However, it was only the afternoon series The Better Half that officially announced that it is ending its run soon.
