Several celebrities and netizens got surprised by Charo Santos-Concio’s announcement that Asia’s longest-running drama anthology, Maalaala Mo Kaya, is coming to an end in December 2022.

On Monday, November 21, Santos annouced MMK’s three-part finale episode via TV Patrol, starting on Saturday, November 26.

The actress-host and Kapamilya Executive also thanked everyone who contributed to MMK’s successful 31-year run.

“Gusto ko pong magbigay-pugay sa lahat ng nagpadala ng sulat, sa aming mga direktor, writers, researchers, production staff, at sa lahat ng naging bahagi ng aming programa.

“Sa mga artistang gumanap, maraming, maraming salamat. Sa management ng ABS-CBN, sa aming mga sponsors at higit sa lahat sa inyong mga tagapanood, kayo po ang nagsabing makahulugan sa inyo ang aming ginagawa,” she said.

On Twitter, actress-TV host Maja Salvador can’t say anything but three broken heart emojis to convey her sentiment over Santos-Concio’s announcement.

Film director and producer Quark Henares also shared his reaction, tweeted his view on MMK as major thing for industry players.

“MMK is such a major thing in the industry. For an ABS director or star, entrusting you with an episode means you’ve made it. Kind of got misty-eyed watching this. Thanks Ma’am Charo and team for this Pinoy pop culture legacy.”

ABS-CBN resident weather forecaster Ariel Rojas also tweeted about MMK becoming an actor’s platform to showcase their acting prowess.

“There was a time when guesting on MMK was like baptism of fire or litmus test for actors. MMK translated to acting excellence.”

Netizen @mabinladen, meanwhile, shared how sad he is about the news since he [literally] grew up with the show.

“Mas nakakaiyak pala to kesa sa mga episodes niyo. Simula bata gang pagtanda, halos kaedad ko ang MMK”

@SyldyV also shared sorrow about MMK’s ending.

“time to end na po ba talaga? Why end the show that gives so much inspiration and lessons for your viewers? Lalo na sa panahon ngayon na kailangan ng mga manonood ng panoorin na may kabuluhan at maaring pagkuhanan ng aral ar inspirasyon..”

@Cholo13766928 shared the same heartbreak, saying, “Our Saturdays will never be the same. This is the most heartbreaking news I never imagined.”

Kapamilya celebrity Dawn Chang, meanwhile, took to Twitter to thank MMK and Ma’am Charo for their contribution to Philippine television.

Netizen @pricessfrance also thanked MMK for giving him the opportunity to share his story.

Forever grateful and honored na isa ang aking kwento sa naging bahagi ng 31 taon ng @MMKOfficial. Maraming salamat po. “Ikaw ang bida sa kwento ng iyong buhay.” Nagmamahal, ang inyong Dakilang Fan.”

@fedelefangirl also thanked MMK for being their weekly family bonding time.

“Much gratitude to MMK.We usually watch the show weekly as a family except horror stories,listen lang bec I cover my eyes most of the time.MMK was like a rite of passage for ABS artists,& a good audition piece for bigger breaks. Hoping it’s not a permanent goodbye but see you later”

@heyrow, on the other hand, commended MMK and Santos-Concio for ending their run on a high note and with flying colors.

“The three decades of commitment to telling the story of the Filipino as Asia’s longest-running drama anthology is among CSC’s legacy. I am happy that CSC closes this chapter in flying colors. She deserves to explore new adventures in this stage of her life. Salamat, CSC and MMK!”
