- Kambal Karibal gets another extension for the year.
- Rumors suggest that Sunshine Dizon will star in the said series.
- Viewers’ feedback remains one of the main reasons why a series gets an extension.
Rumors suggest that Kambal Karibal received another extension which will last until August 2018 as it continues to receive high ratings. Although amid extension, rumors hint that another character will bid farewell from the series. The said rumors suggest that Sunshine Dizon will star in the said series.
In an earlier report, viewers’ feedback correlates with why a series gets an extension. ABS-CBN Corporation uses metrics to assess the performance of a show. In GMA Network, ratings remain as the determining factor on the pace and duration of the program.
Meanwhile, GMA Network has a six-week policy. If a series doesn’t rate well in its first six weeks, the network will give another week. If the series still has yet to rate high, the network would dispatch the said series. According to PEP.ph’s special report, “if a show struggles in the ratings, the creative team removes certain plot points and speed up the storytelling.” However, “if ratings won’t improve the show’s run will be shortened.”
Meanwhile, GMA Network has already informed their creative teams on any possible extensions. This determines how long they can extend the storytelling.
