Here is what LH knows so far:

Artikulo 247

The legal series has already started its production but added some changes mid-year.

Supposedly, Rocco Nacino was part of the initial cast. However, since he will be replacing Derek Ramsay in another upcoming Kapuso show To Have and To Hold, Benjamin Alvarez will get to star alongside Rhian Ramos, Mark Herras, and Jackie Rice in Artikulo 247.

The show is expected to be aired sometime in the latter half of 2021 though no announcement has yet been made.

The series stars Heart Evangelista, Richard Yap, and Paolo Contis. They are joined by Kyline Alcantara, Mavy Legaspi, Zonia Mejia, and Elias Point.

The romantic show tells the story of a young woman from Sorsogon named Celeste (Heart). She reinvents herself in Manila as a fashion designer and socialite who makes an unexpected discovery about herself when she makes an unplanned visit to her hometown.

Las Hermanas

At the start of June 2021, cast members of the upcoming Las Hermanas already started their locked-in taping. It will star returning Kapuso Albert Martinez, Jason Abalos, Yasmien Kurdi and Faith Da Silva.
