“Yes, napagkasunduan na ng Production Heads at ilang writers na pagbigyan si Jhong sa hiling niya.
“Kung kami ang tatanungin, ayaw namin siyang umalis kasi ang laki ng role niya para bitawan ng ganon na lang.
“Nung una, nahirapan mag decide ang FPJ team kasi hindi nila alam kung paano gagawan ng story na aalisin si Alakdan sa cycle nung story kasi hindi talaga madali.
“Syempre kailangan din ni Jhong na bigyan ng mas maraming time yung political duties niya at ngayon na kakandidato ulit siya, kaya okay lang sa buong production ang naging desisyon niya.
“Syempre support pa rin kami sa kung anong magiging desisyon niya kasi isang pamilya na rin kami,” Coco quipped.
