‘Maaalala Mo Kaya’ to end after more than three decades

Saturday nights will never be the same again as Asia's longest drama anthology will end after 31 years. 

For 31 years, ABS-CBN produced heart-tugging episodes of Maalaala Mo Kaya that touched the lives of many Filipinos. But that is about to be over as its presenter Charo Santos-Concio officially announced that her show will end in December. 

"Hindi na po mabilang ang nasalaysay na kuwento dito sa ‘MMK’ — mga kuwentong totoo, mga salamin ng sarili ninyong buhay na nagbigay ng aral at ng panibagong pag-asa,” Charo said in her farewell message. 


"Kami po ay tagapaghatid lang ng mga kuwento,” Santos-Concio said. “Kung mauulit man ang lahat, hindi po ako magdadalawang isip na piliin muli ang role na ito. Kulang po ang tatlumpu’t isang taon para magpasalamat sa inyo.”

Charo went on to thank not just the actors who portrayed the real-life characters of its letter senders, but also the people behind the success of the show -- the creatives and crew. 

“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 added. 

Ending her message, she said: "Salamat po sa lahat ng nakaraan at sa anumang paraan na maaaaring pa tayong muling magkita,” she said. “Ito po si Charo Santos, ang inyong tagahanga at tagapag-kuwento.”

Maalaala Mo Kaya will release a three-part special until December 10, its last day of airing. MMK's first episode aired in 1991.
