@adetteombion also asked GMA Network what happened since the series was supposed to premiere this month.
How 'bout Ang Dalawang Ikaw of RitKen? I thought it will be released this March, what happened GMA?

@matteneyperry also shared the same sentiment saying RitKen fans only need an official statement from GMA network regarding Ang Dalawang Ikaw since there were promotions for the series already and the pilot date was already announced.
The RitKen series was supposed to debut on Monday, March 29, 2021, replacing Bilangin Ang Bituin Sa Langit which will have its finale this Friday, March 26. GMA Network has also released its trailer several times along with other promo materials on TV and social media.
However, prior to its pilot, GMA Network announced that a replay of their 2014 teledrama Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real will instead take the timeslot. The Kapuso network has called to announce the postponement of Ang Dalawang Ikaw’s airing. However, the network hasn’t given an exact reason as to the delay of its airing.
In a tweet by @RitKenSolids, the series’ director Jorron Monroy confirmed the delay of the show’s launch but assured the fans that it will definitely air this year.

Meanwhile, it was said the delay has something to do with the surge in COVID-19.
Twitter account @gtvphilippines also tweeted about the rumored reason, saying Ken Chan may have been tested positive for COVID-19.
Meanwhile, other RitKen fans tweeted their continued support for the loveteam and the upcoming series despite its delayed airing.
