Fans have reacted positively to the debut episode of 'Since I Found You,' starring Piolo Pascual and Arci Muรฑoz with 'Kita Kita' stars Empoy Marquez and Alessandra de Rossi.

It's Piolo Pascual's first teleserye in four years -- and his fans took to Twitter to share their delight in welcoming him back. 

"Since I Found You," which premiered on Monday, marked his first appearance in a television drama series since 2014's "Hawak Kamay." 

In the primetime series, Pascual plays Nathan, a cold-hearted businessman who was hardened by his experiences as a child abandoned in the slums and by being stood up on his wedding day by his fiance. 

The pilot showed how he met Arci Muรฑoz's Dani character -- Dani was trying to sell him a pack of cigarettes as a promo girl at a club, and he mistook her for a prostitute.

If there was any pressure that came with returning to primetime TV after a long break, Pascual can take comfort in that much of the reaction towards "Since I Found You" were positive. 

Many praised the balance between the heavy scenes (the reveal of his tragic backstory) and the show's funnier moments, which usually featured his other co-star, Empoy Marquez. 

This is Marquez's first show with ABS-CBN after starring in the smash hit "Kita Kita," which was produced by Pascual. His co-star, Alessandra de Rossi, is also in "Since I Found You." 

He plays Nathan's loyal driver, James Ribs. 

"Since I Found You" is directed by Antoinette Jadaone, who helmed the hit show "On the Wings of Love."
