The actress says she might consider doing teleseryes again only if "kailangang kailangan."

Angelica Panganiban is firm about her decision to retire from doing teleseryes. In her recent interview with Boy Abunda on his YouTube channel, Angelica underlined, “gusto ko talagang panindigan even though it’s difficult pa rin.” She elaborated, “May ibang direksiyon na siyang gustong gawin ngayon, si Angge [Angelica’s nickname], may ibang gusto nang direksyong gawin."

“Hindi ko makikitang natutupad iyon kung sobrang involved pa rin ako sa paggawa ng teleserye.” Angelica began mulling over this since doing Playhouse in 2018. She recalled, “Nagsabi na ako sa mama ko. Sabi ko, ‘Ma, ‘tapos na ako sa teleserye, parang ayoko na.’ Then, siyempre, hindi niya naintindihan. ‘Bakit depressed ka ba? May pinagdadaanan ka ba?’" “[Sagot ko], ‘kailangan ba depressed? Hindi ba pwedeng ako naman?’”

But in the course of the pandemic and ABS-CBN shutdown, the network offered her to do Walang Hanggang Paalam, the series that aired from September 2020 to April 2021. She continued, “Then, nagbakasakali ang ABS noong in-offer nila sa akin yung Walang Hanggang Paalam. Nagkataong pandemic, walang prangkisa. So parang, 'Wow, sino ako para tumanggi sa trabaho?' Iyong mga taong puwedeng kumita kapag tinanggap ko itong project na ito, sige, challenge accepted, game.”

However, it further convinced Angelica to stop doing teleseryes. “Pero noong ginagawa ko na siya Tito Boy, doon ko na-realize na, ‘Okay. Okay na ako.Iyong pagod, naka-lock in, naka-bubble kayo for kalahating taon, parang okay na, okay na talaga."

“Then, siyempre, nagka-love life, tapos parang baka puwedeng i-enjoy ko muna ito.” In July 2021, Angelica celebrated her first anniversary with boyfriend Gregg Homan. Though, she says she might change her mind in the future, especially if “kailangang kailangan.

She said, “Iyon naman ang usapan, Tito Boy, sabi ko naman kela Sir Carlo Katigbak, [ABS-CBN President] and Tita Cory Vidanes [chief operating officer for broadcast], pero kapag kailangan kailangan na at saka alam naman nila iyon, iyong kailangang kailangan.”

She is set to do a new series on iWant titled The Goodbye Girl in 2022.
