Three new teleseryes are set to air on GMA-7 for the third quarter of 2018.

The Kapuso network recently launched its omnibus plug featuring its line-up for July to September 2018.

Two prime-time series and one daytime drama are expected to air in the coming weeks.

This includes the fantasy series headlined by Alden Richards, the return of Nora Aunor on prime-time, and the first teleserye of Sunshine Cruz on GMA-7.

The reality singing competition The Clash, which already premiered last July 7, was also included in the omnibus plug.

Here are the programs to be aired on GMA-7 for the third quarter of 2018:

THE CLASH

Asia's Songbird Regine Velasquez serves as the main host of the reality program The Clash, which already aired its first two episodes last July 7-8.

This is Regine's comeback to hosting reality competitions after many years. In the past, she used to host Star For A Night (2002-2003, IBC-13), Search For A Star (2003-2004), Pinoy Pop Superstar (2004-2007), Celebrity Duets (2007-2009), Are You The Next Big Star? (2009), and Bet ng Bayan (2014).


The Top 62 Clashers are already on the One-On-One round, wherein two clashers face each other and judges will select who will move on to the next round.

The judges of The Clash are Christian Bautista, Ai-Ai Delas Alas, and Lani Misalucha, who makes a Kapuso comeback after more than 10 years.

Joyce Pring and Andre Paras also serve as backstage hosts.
