Ruru Madrid confirms no extension for ‘Lolong’

His series remained at the top of Nielsen Philippines NUTAM data, averaging 15.6 percent on August 14. 

Ruru Madrid confirmed on August 27 that his show Lolong will not have new episodes, despite many of its audience requesting to have it extended.

“Natapos na po namin siya noong March. So talagang kung saan lang po aabutin, doon na lang po ang Lolong,” he explained during the press conference for Running Man Philippines at Robinsons Manila Midtown Atrium.



His series remained at the top of Nielsen Philippines NUTAM data, averaging 15.6 percent on August 14. 

Lolong‘s rival, ABS-CBN’s Darna: The TV Series, on the other hand, is in second place.

Furthermore, the show garnered 18.3 percent on August 24—the highest rating it received.

Madrid expressed his gratitude for the show’s supporters, as he did not expect such appreciation from viewers.

“Siyempre sobrang thankful talaga ako sa lahat ng mga sumusuporta. Sa totoo lang, hindi po namin in-expect na magiging ganoon ang pagtanggap ng mga tao.”

Netizens even sent him videos of children copying his character Lolong, making his heart fuller, Madrid added.

“Nakakatuwa ‘yung mga bata na nagse-send pa sa akin ng mga videos na ginagaya nila si Lolong. Sobrang sarap lang po sa puso kasi ang sarap na nakakapagbigay ka sa kasiyahan lalung-lalo na po sa mga kabataan.”

Although there may be no more Lolong episode after its season finale, the Kapuso star said he wants to work with cast members Shaira Diaz, Arra San Agustin, Christopher de Leon, Jean Garcia, Bembol Roco, Malou de Guzman, Rochelle Pangilinan, Paul Salas, Marco Alcaraz, Mikoy Morales, and Maui Taylor, hopefully in another project.

“Hopefully, sana makatrabaho ko ulit ang mga nakasama ko sa project na iyon. ‘Yung cast,kumbaga lahat sobrang nasayahan po talaga ako. Kaya maraming maraming salamat sa lahat po ng suporta na natanggap po namin.”



In the meantime, his upcoming game show Running Man Philippines will air on September 3.
