The popular boys’ love series “Hello, Stranger”, starring Tony Labrusca and JC Alcantara, is getting a movie sequel.
Film outfit Black Sheep made the announcement on its Twitter page on Sunday, August 16, saying the follow-up will be filmed entirely in person with the lead stars and the rest of the cast members.
“Not a Zoom movie guys, but an actual live movie!” it said.
Petersen Vargas, the director of the show, also confirmed the news on the microblogging site, as he thanked fans for their support.
“Hello Stranger will have a movie sequel. #HelloStrangerFancon Dahil ito sa inyong lahat. MAHAL KO KAYO,” he wrote.
Further details about the sequel are yet to be announced.
“Hello, Stranger,” Black Sheep’s first digital series, first aired last June. It tells the story of college students Xavier (Tony) and Mico (JC), whose relationship grows from reluctant project partners, close friends, to conflicted romantic interests.
An 8th and final episode for the series is scheduled to air this Wednesday, August 19.
“Hello, Stranger” comes amid a wave of BL productions in the Philippines, following the success of the Thai series "2gether" early this year.
Aside from Tony and JC, the show also stars Gillian Vicencio, Vivoree Esclito, Patrick Quiroz, and Migs Almendras.
