The stars of “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano,” led by Julia Montes and Coco Martin, marked the sixth anniversary of the airing of the first episode of the country’s longest-running action-drama series on Tuesday (September 28).
“Maraming maraming salamat sa lahat ng Pilipino sa buong mundo na hanggang ngayon ay sumusubaybay at sumusuporta sa ‘FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.’ Happy sixth anniversary, mga Kapamilya!” the cast declared in a video released by Dreamscape Entertainment.
Coco also gave his thanks to all viewers and everyone who is part of the show. “Sa lahat ng aming mga ka-Probinsyano saan mang sulok ng mundo, maraming maraming salamat po sa anim na taong pagsama ninyo sa laban ni Cardo. Sa lahat ng bumubuo ng ‘FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano’ mula sa staff, crew, actors, directors, at sa lahat ng mga boss ng ABS-CBN, kami po’y nagpapasalamat sa lahat ng pagmamahal niyo. Maraming maraming salamat po,” he said.
Susan Roces expressed her gratitude and said, “Sa loob ng anim na taon, masaya ako na naging parte ako ng pamilyang ito. Para sa lahat ng mga ka-Probinsyano maraming maraming salamat sa pagtangkilik ninyo, sa pagtulong ninyo, sa pagmamahal ninyo. Pinagbuklod tayong lahat bilang isang pamilya – sa isip, sa puso, at sa gawa. Happy happy sixth anniversary.”
Angel Aquino, who plays General Diana Olegario, called the show her second family that made her feel “more loved, appreciated and challenged.” She posted, “To my little brother and our great leader @cocomartin_ph and our father and protector @deo_endrinal, thank you for giving me the opportunity to belong in the most important show on television. A big show comes with big hurdles but we manage to stay strong and tight and unbreakable because we have you and our Tita Cory (Vidanes) and all our viewers and supporters who never give up on us. Mga ka-Probinsyano, maraming salamat at mahal namin kayo! Sama Sama tayo hanggang sa dulo!”
Co-stars Lorna Tolentino, Rosanna Roces, John Estrada, John Arcilla, Rowell Santiago, Joseph Marco, John Prats, Geoff Eigenmann, and many others also joined the celebration by thanking viewers in their posts on their respective social media accounts.
As the story continues this week, Cardo (Coco) and Task Force Agila will have a harder time hiding from the authorities. They will have to bear the brunt of Renato’s (John Arcilla) wrath after Arturo (Tirso Cruz III), who learns about Black Ops’ killing of Jacob (Marc Abaya), pins the blame on Cardo. The tug-of-war of power in the Palace also intensifies as Renato and Lily (Lorna) boost their efforts to hunt down President Oscar before he is able to get a hold of Cardo.
