Dingdong Dantes, Angelu de Leon, Rica Peralejo, and other stars of GMA-7's defunct hit show TGIS held a big reunion yesterday, August 31.

The all-white party was attended by different members of TGIS's batches one and two.

According to Michael Flores's Instagram post, the reunion was hosted by Ciara Sotto, who appeared in both TGIS batches.

Also present at the reunion were Sunshine Dizon, former actress Chantal Umali, writer Kit Langit, associate producer Neal Del Rosario, and musical scorer and batch two director Dominic Zapata, and creator and batch one director Mark Reyes.

Neal, Dominic, and Mark remained as directors for GMA-7 teleseryes, while Kit served as writer and creative manager for most of the Kapuso network's drama programs.

The reunion coincided with TGIS's 23rd anniversary celebration this year.

In Michael's caption, he also mentioned some of the show's stars who weren't able to make it to the party: Bobby Andrews, Bernadette Allyson, Onemig Bondoc, Red Sternberg, Raven Villanueva, Dino Guevarra, Polo Ravales, Antoinette Taus, and Anne Curtis.

He also teased that a reunion project might be in the works.
