Diether Ocampo is finally returning to ABS-CBN! On Wednesday, February 7, the upcoming fanteserye “Bagani” made waves on social media as its trailer was released. While the date of its debut has yet to be announced, netizens couldn’t be more thrilled to find out who was going to star in the show.
Diether is set to play the role of an immortal god alongside Ryan Eigenmann, who also happens to be making a return to ABS-CBN. Based on the trailer, the two will play a crucial part in the story.
“Bagani” revolves around the story of star-crossed lovers Lakas (Enrique Gil) and Ganda (Liza Soberano). Set in San Sinukob, the trailer sets the stage by showing Dakil (Christian Vazquez) asking Lakas for help in an upcoming war. Lakas agrees, only to discover later that by agreeing to help Dakil, he would be fighting against Ganda’s clan.
This is where the immortal gods come in. Angered by the battle between the opposing tribes, they sent supernatural creatures to serve as a warning to the humans. Seeing that they were facing a more dangerous enemy, Lakas and Ganda team up with Lakam (Matteo Guidicelli), Mayari (Sofia Andres), and Dumakulem (Makisig Morales) to do battle against the creatures.
Diether has been a Kapamilya staple since 1993. He was last seen in ABS-CBN for a “Maalaala Mo Kaya” episode in 2014. According to Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP), he was initially set to make a much-awaited comeback with Judy Ann Santos for the soap opera “Someone To Watch Over Me” but the show failed to push through due to the actress’ sudden pregnancy.
Prior to his role in “Bagani,” Diether was last seen on an episode of GMA-7’s “Magpakailanman” in May of 2017.
