Kris Aquino gave a peek into some of her plans as fans called for her showbiz comeback.

Comments requesting her to return to television came after she posted a video greeting via Instagram on Tuesday, June 9, for Darla Sauler, the former head writer of her now-defunct show “Kris TV.”

Instagram user @badgalbilly asked Aquino if she was going to make a comeback.

Aquino replied, “I still need a medical clearance because of my autoimmune issues — I’m leaving everything as part of God’s plans for my life.”

“My other path is to take an online course (since many are now available) — political science — sometimes you also have to follow the call of destiny.”

Her response prompted one @winnie_ragudo to comment, “yesss! We need intelligent people like you in government!”

Aquino explained that she wanted to get an education to be more informed.

“Oops I should have clarified — my dad started as a war correspondent for the Manila Times. Every morning [I] watch Chris Cuomo on CNN [and] he comes from a political clan… [and] he has a law degree — so he’s able to tackle political issues from many perspectives.

“I don’t want to have an opinion because of my DNA, [I] want to be thoroughly informed [and] very [well-rounded] from my education,” she reasoned, adding, “There’s a part of me that want to be a content creator of documentaries that [I] myself hosted [and] produced.”

Aquino said back in 2018 that she could not return to ABS-CBN, her network for about 20 years, due to politics.

“Its franchise is at stake,” she explained, stating that “while I have no issues with President Duterte, his supporters don’t like me. I know the realities of life. I understand why I still don’t have [TV projects] up to now.”

ABS-CBN’s franchise expired this year and with no renewal, was ordered shut down by the National Telecommunications Commission.

In the meantime, Aquino has kept a presence online with vlogs on platforms such as YouTube and Facebook, and interacts with fans on social media. /ra
