Vic Sotto Confirms The Return Of “Eat Bulaga!” Lenten Specials

Miles Ocampo and Atasha Muhlach will be joining the annual anthology series for the first time

Vic Sotto recently confirmed that the long-running show “Eat Bulaga!” is gearing up to revive its annual Lenten Specials, a cherished tradition they observe during Holy Week.

During the episode of “Eat Bulaga!” on March 9, Vic discussed how the casting for the Lenten Special episodes was determined through a draw. He also mentioned that viewers can anticipate these episodes airing on Holy Monday, Holy Tuesday, and Holy Wednesday.

Nabanggit natin ang pagbabalik ng ‘Eat Bulaga!’ Lenten Specials. Marahil, nagtataka kayo sino ang grupo para sa Lunes, Martes, at Miyerkules. Ang ginawa po namin ay nagbunutan kung Group A, B, or C at lahat ng mga magkakapareho,” Vic explained.

The “Eat Bulaga!” Lenten Specials is a longstanding annual anthology series aired during Holy Week, taking over the regular live noontime show in observance of the season. It originally aired from 1981 to 2008, returned in 2014, and had a hiatus in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
