Along with the big reveal, the show also treated fans to the release of Labrusca and Alcantara’s duet cover of Seth Fedelin’s “Kahit na Anong Sabihin ng Iba” on the same day.
The finale will be aired tomorrow, Aug. 19, via Black Sheep’s Facebook page and YouTube channel. The eight-part digital series premiered its first episode on June 24.
“Hello Stranger,” set during the COVID-19 pandemic, tells the story of students Xavier (Labrusca) and Mico (Alcantara) who get forced to partner up on a project, which ultimately paves the way for a romantic relationship.
The series’ romantic leads are joined by Gillian Vicencio, Vivoree Esclito, Patrick Quiroz and Miguel Almendras. RA/JB
