The triathlon soap opera directed by Dan Villegas was first announced on April 27, 2016 as Because You Love Me, and was supposed to be topbilled by Jake Cuenca, Gerald Anderson and Yen Santos. After the filming postponed due to many reasons, Santos was later pulled out from the cast and the scenes already shot in Bulalacao, Oriental Mindoro will not be used anymore. Cuenca and Anderson remained part of the series, ABS-CBN tapped Kim Chiu to play the role previously given to Santos.

During a press conference on October 24, 2016, Dreamscape revealed the cast and characters of Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin and will serve as Chiu and Anderson's reunion project. "Kimerald is Back" trended on Twitter for several hours after the announcement.[2] Chiu, Anderson, Cuenca and veteran actress Helen Gamboa will be reunited together in this project eight years later after their respective leading roles in the critically acclaimed telenovela, Tayong Dalawa.[6] It is also Gamboa's comeback project on ABS-CBN five years after the phenomenal Walang Hanggan,[6] Chiu's reunion with Cuenca three years after Ikaw Lamang, and Cuenca's reunion with Coleen Garcia who he once worked with in the Philippine adaptation of the Colombian telenovela Pasión de Amor (from Telemundo's Pasión de Gavilanes).

Filming for Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin began in October 26, 2016.
