Beethoven del Valle Bunagan or professionally known as Michael V, has been subject to various speculations regarding taking a sabbatical leave from the showbiz industry during the pandemic.
Last year, Michael V tested positive for COVID19. Yet after recovering, he continued the production of the Pepito Manaloto in the new normal.
Upon being asked to confirm if he would continue to be a Kapuso, the actor-director did not answer the question directly. He did not disclose whether or not he has already renewed his contract with the GMA network.
However, the actor-director eyed to work to be part of the creative team for the GMA Network’s upcoming Voltes 5. He is not yet officially part, but he has been keeping in touch with its production.
The hit comedy sitcom Pepito Manaloto aired its season finale on May 29. The fans are wondering what will be the next step for the lead star-producer.
The new season will unlock a closed chapter in the lives of Pepito and Elsa Manaloto – featuring the story of the two during the ‘80s.
However, Michael V and Manilyn Reynes would still have a part to do in the new season. They would do a voice-over narrating of the new episodes.
Netizens are excited to witness the Unang Kwento, or the story of Pepito and Elsa before winning a lottery that has changed the course of their lives.
Pepito Manaloto started airing in March 2010. The show has produced 444 episodes, which dominated the Philippine TV industry every weekend.
Will this new beginning be a foreshadow of Michael V’s career in the entertainment industry?
