18 Mar – Fans of GMA-7's previous hit shows like "Encantadia" and "Ika-6 Na Utos" will be able to watch them again as the network will be re-airing them in replacement of recent shows that are temporarily going off the air.

As reported on PEP, the Kapuso Corporate Communications department recently announced that the two shows, as well as "Kambal Karibal" will be taking over the timeslots of GMA Afternoon Prime programmes "Magkaagaw" and "Prima Donnas", as well as GMA Telebabad shows "Descendants of the Sun" and "Anak ni Waray Vs. Anak ni Biday".

This decision came after the network had to suspend productions of said programmes following President Rodrigo Duterte's community quarantine and ban on mass gatherings in response to the pandemic.

"Ika-6 Utos", which starred Ryza Cenon and Gabby Concepcion will be replacing the Sunshine Dizon series "Magkaagaw" as well as Jillian Ward's "Prima Donnas".

On the other hand, the Bianca Umali and Kyline Alcantara series, "Kambal, Karibal" will take over the slot from "Anak ni Waray Vs. Anak ni Biday", while Dingdong Dantes-starrer, "Descendants of the Sun" will be replaced by the remake/sequel of the fantasy series, "Encantadia", which starred Kylie Padilla, Gabbi Garcia, and Glaiza de Castro.
