Daytime Drama Queen Julia Montes thanks viewers for their unwavering support for Doble Kara, 2016’s longest running daytime soap for more than a year.

“Every day, you warmly welcome me into your homes. I am beyond thankful for the memories and the people I met throughout this journey,” said Julia. “Thank you because you made me feel that I am not alone, that I am part of one family.”

Since it started airing in August 2015, Doble Kara has become a big part of Filipino viewers’ afternoon viewing habit, with its thrilling and touching scenes making it a consistent top-rater and the most watched afternoon drama in the country. According to data from Kantar Media, the show recorded its all-time high national TV rating of 21.7 percent last year, and remained unbeaten by the several shows pitted by the rival network against it.

Aside from nationwide ratings, it is also a consistent trending topic on Twitter, garnering praises from netizens and receiving thousands of tweets daily.

The drama series also highlighted family values that resonated with viewers. It showed the unconditional love a mother has for her family, as demonstrated by Laura (Mylene Dizon) and Lucille (Carmina Villarroel). The strength and bravery of fathers were also seen in Ishmael (Ariel Rivera) and Antonio (Allen Dizon). Sebastian (Sam Milby) and Edward (EA Guzman), meanwhile, demonstrated true and pure love as they pursued and built a family with Kara and Sara.

Doble Kara has also bagged several honors from award-giving bodies such as the PMPC Star Awards and ALTA Media Icon Awards. Julia, meanwhile, was recognized by the 14th Gawad Tanglaw and Anak TV Awards for her portrayal of twins Kara and Sara.

As the soap nears its much-awaited finale, more explosive surprises are coming viewers’ way as Alex puts all her evil plans to work against Sara and Kara and Lucille returns to their lives.

Will Alex and Lucille connive against the twins? Who else will risk their lives to protect their family? Can Kara and Sara be able to protect their families from harm?
