After the celebrity Mark Anthony Fernandez was acquitted for illegal drug charges last year, the controversial actor is making a comeback onto television. He will soon be a cast member of the top-rated Kapamilya series “FPJ’s Ang Probinsiyano.”
The exciting news was announced through a twitter post by Eric John Salut, publicity head of Dreamscape Entertainment, on March 12.

In case you forgot, Mark Anthony Fernandez’s last Kapamilya appearance was on “Super Inggo” in 2006. He portrayed the father of the young Kathryn Bernardo back then. It took him 12 years to finally come back to the Kapamilya network.
According to Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP.ph), the 39-year-old actor also signed a management contract with VIVA Artists Agency on January 25, as part of his showbiz comeback.
He also confirmed earlier this year that he will finally reunite with former girlfriend Claudine Barretto for a special on-screen project.

“We’ll be doing a project together. We just don’t know what yet, pero they’re fixing the scripts.”
Their last films together were “Mangarap Ka” and “Pare Ko,” both produced by Star Cinema during their teenage years.
