Francis Ng to return for "Triumph in the Skies"

11 Oct – Rumour has it that Francis Ng will reprise his role as Captain Samuel Tong in the third instalment of the hit TVB drama, "Triumph in the Skies".

As reported on HK01, TVB Assistant General Manager Felix To recently confirmed that the company is planning on making the third series tentatively titled "Triumph in the Skies 2020", and that it will mainly be set in mainland China.

Although he didn't reveal the official cast members, it was rumoured that only Francis will be the original cast member returning to the series.

Reportedly, Hong Kong singer William Chan - who is a favourite in mainland China - may also be joining the project, which will be co-produced by Tencent's Penguin Pictures, aside from several mainland stars.

Sources are also claiming that TVB is in talks to get big stars like Yang Mi and Dilraba Dilmurat to join the project, though neither TVB nor Tencent have made any confirmation.

As for Julian Cheung, whose role as Captain Jayden Koo became a huge hit in the 2013's sequel; the actor may not be reprising his role due to the situation between TVB and his current management company, HMV Digital China.
