MANILA - A trailer for the highly anticipated finale of "The Legal Wife" shows highlights from the top-rating series since its debut in January.

The two-minute video, which was first telecast after the May 30 episode of "The Legal Wife," traces the love story of Adrian (Jericho Rosales) and Monica (Angel Locsin) as well as her close friendship with Nicole (Maja Salvador).

The montage transitions to memorable moments from the show, including Monica's discovery of the affair, her confrontations with Adrian and Nicole, the revelation of Nicole's pregnancy, and the much-talked-about brawl between the wife and the mistress.

The trailer also shows recent scenes from "The Legal Wife" -- Monica's legal steps to end her marriage, and her encounter with Nicole two years after they both gave birth to their respective kids with Adrian.

Since it premiered early this year, "The Legal Wife" has steadily increased its viewership nationwide, according to Kantar Media.

Its pilot episode on January 27 got 21% in national TV ratings. In April, the series averaged 23.5%. For the month of May, its average audience share soared to 26%.

Directed by Rory Quintos and Dado Lumibao, "The Legal Wife" also stars JC de Vera, Matet de Leon, Rio Locsin, Mark Gil, and Christopher de Leon. It airs weeknights after "Ikaw Lamang" during ABS-CBN's primetime block.
