THE wait is almost over for loyal Kapuso viewers as GMA Network’s internationally-acclaimed series, “Descendants of the Sun: The Philippine Adaptation,” finally returns to primetime beginning October 26.

Its lead stars – Primetime King Dingdong Dantes and Ultimate Star Jennylyn Mercado are equally excited for the series’ highly-anticipated comeback on GMA Telebabad.

Also eager for the continuation of the story are Rocco Nacino and Jasmine Curtis-Smith who play Wolf and Captain Moira, respectively.

The series left off with Capt. Lucas (Dingdong) and Dr. Maxine (Jennylyn) eciding that the two of them were better off apart because they lead very different lives. And with the medical team’s mission in Urdan coming to an end, they bid their farewells to their friends and the military members. In the midst of their flight back to Manila, an intense earthquake strikes Urdan and records multiple casualties.

DOTS premiered on February 10 but production was temporarily halted due to the restrictions brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. Last month, lock-in tapings which followed strict safety protocols were held which enabled the production team to wrap up the series.

DOTS is under the direction of Dominic Zapata.

Don’t miss the much-awaited return of “Descendants of the Sun: The Philippine Adaptation,” starting with recap episodes on October 26 and fresh episodes beginning November 5, after ‘Encantadia’ on GMA Telebabad.
