Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala was supposed to be extended due to high ratings and positive feedbacks. Unfortunately, the show's extension is later cancelled due to the combined requests of Koreanovela fans and the supporters of That Winter, the Wind Blows, followed by Santos' decision to finish her show immediately to give way for Got to Believe.[11][12][13]
