In a recent revelation, PTV-4's general manager shed light on the much-anticipated return of the beloved showman, Willie Revillame, and his iconic program, "Wowowin." After an extended hiatus following his departure from ALLTV, Revillame signed a contract with AMBS last year, though his tenure with the network was short-lived. ALLTV, the brainchild of Manny Villar, bore witness to Revillame's departure, leaving audiences eagerly awaiting his triumphant comeback to free television.

In a musical ode titled "Babalik Ako," Revillame poignantly expressed his yearning for the uproarious cheers, thunderous applause, and warm embraces of his ardent supporters. The song resonated as a promising harbinger of his return to the limelight. Recent online buzz has hinted at Revillame's impending resurgence, slated to grace the screens of PTV-4 and IBC 13.

If reports are to be believed, viewers can mark their calendars for October 2, 2023, a Monday evening, when "Wowowin" is slated to air from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. on both channels.

While the anticipation builds, legal minds are meticulously fine-tuning the intricacies of the program's contractual obligations. Ana Puod, PTV-4's general manager, disclosed that the scheduling of the show ultimately rests in Revillame's capable hands, as he opts for a non-noon time slot. Negotiations, she notes, are a protracted affair, with multiple facets yet to be meticulously addressed. A palpable optimism permeates all parties involved, buoyed by the prospect of an amicable resolution.

This deliberative process has been underway for several months, underscoring the gravity and complexity of the partnership. The nature of this renewed alliance and the mutual commitment it entails remain subjects of earnest discourse.

In a significant legal development, the Supreme Court recently rendered its verdict, definitively dismissing ABS-CBN Corporation's substantial case against Revillame, which amounted to over a billion pesos. This milestone ruling effectively draws a curtain on the protracted dispute between the luminary host and his erstwhile network. The origins of this rift trace back to 2010 when Revillame departed from the show, aggrieved by the network's failure to meet his stipulated terms.

As the curtain rises on this eagerly awaited return, anticipation abounds, and audiences can scarcely contain their enthusiasm. Willie Revillame's resurgence promises not only a renaissance for "Wowowin" but also a testament to the enduring allure of quality entertainment.
