    After an eight-day recap, GMA’s internationally-acclaimed series “Descendants of the Sun: The Philippine Adaptation” is set to air brand new episodes beginning November 5.

    Director Dominic Zapata promises viewers that they can expect the same quality from the previously aired episodes despite being taped under strict safety protocols during the quarantine.

    “Viewers should expect the same quality from DOTS Ph because that’s what they deserve,” he said. “If anything, there will be even bigger, more mind-blowing revelations as our protagonists’ world become smaller and more complicated. The show won big in the Seoul International Drama Awards and it promises to live up to that.”

    The series follows the love story of Alpha Team Leader Capt. Lucas Manalo, portrayed by Dingdong Dantes, and cardio-thoracic surgeon Dr. Maxine Dela Cruz, brought to life by Jennylyn Mercado.

    “We’re very excited to show our loyal viewers the continuation of Descendants of the Sun.

    It took a while but we’re very grateful that they stuck with us and continued to support us. Ito na ‘yun, we’re back and it only gets better from here on,” Dingdong shared
