Teaser 1

International Emmy-nominated Angel Locsin is coming back to primetime television via the fantasy series “Imortal” opposite the Box Office King, John Lloyd Cruz.

“Imortal” is said to be the second book of the fantaserye “Lobo” which earned for Angel her very first Best Actress nomination in the International Emmy Awards. The upcoming series will perhaps become the first Vampire Series on Philippine television.

It’s interesting to note that “Vampires” have been receiving excellent reception from viewers lately. With the success of the Twilight novels which turned to box-office hit film franchise, the HBO series “True Blood”, and the CW series “The Vampire Diaries,” the bloodsucking brands are surefire hits.

ABS-CBN is bringing the fever in the country with a twist. “Imortal”, as the title suggests, could tackle the myth about the undying night creatures with a Filipino flavor in it.

Directing the fantasy series “Imortal” is Chito Roño, the writer/director of horror box-office films “Sukob” and Feng Shui. It’s not yet confirmed if the series will use the vampire theme as Angel Locsin keeps mum about what her role is going to be. She only said that it’s similar to “Lobo” so she might be returning as “werewolf.”

In the monster hit movie “The Twilight Saga,” werewolves and vampires are mortal enemies. I have a feeling that “Imortal”, just like in the Twilight films, will tackle the vampires versus werewolves thingy. What makes it even more exciting is that it could have the classic “Romeo and Juliet” twist into it. So if Angel is a werewolf, she will fall in love with an enemy, John Lloyd Cruz, who could play the role of a Vampire.

Joining the cast of “Imortal” are Maricar Reyes (replacing Impostor star Maja Salvador whose supposed to be in the show.) and singer/songwriter Rico Blanco. Jomari Yllana also joins the cast as he'll be the one to open the story of IMORTAL, Justin Cuyugan whose last drama (Only You TV Series) was along with Angel Locsin and Sam Milby, he confirmed himself that he's part of the cast of the said series. The two stars joined Angel and John Lloyd under an acting workshop being conducted by Laurice Guillen.


here's the Official Lobo Trailer, it aired last 2008. Opposite partner, Piolo Pascual. if others are speculating that Imortal is the continuation of Lobo.

around 1:03, Angel Locsin and John Lloyd's comeback in Primetime drama
Angel Locsin's interview: there are lot of scenes to watch out for. the story is welled written.





Three hundred years ago, a group of powerful beings arrived in our shores. Known as vampires, drinkers of human blood, their menace quickly spread throughout the land. But unknown to them, a powerful clan also lived in the islands, a group of beings who can transform themselves into powerful wolves - the Taong Lobos. The Taong Lobos were the humans' protectors and they immediately formed an army to destroy the vampires. The blood drinkers were no match to the Taong Lobos. One by one, they fell. Those who survived were driven into hiding. What followed was peace among the humans and taong lobos, and the memory of the vampires started to fade. But the vampires are only lying in wait – organizing and fortifying their numbers until they are ready. They are holding a secret – a prophecy that foretells of an epic battle between them and the Taong Lobos that will finally decide the one blood that shall rule all. The battle shall be led by a powerful vampire and a powerful taong lobo who are each others nemesis and downfall. The vampires believe they have found their prophesied savior and now they are preparing to come out and start the war. The Taong Lobos have grown complacent, and they know nothing about the prophecy. With the stage set for an epic battle, two individuals, Mateo and Lia, find themselves drawn to each other, unsuspecting that as they grow closer together, they are awakening the powers that are lying dormant in both of them – the same powers that will inevitably tear them apart.

*this post will be edited for upcoming episodes of WEEK 1*


i like how the series started, but it saddens me how this whole week episodes showcased the end Lyka and Noah's lives.

the LOBO series where Lyka and Noah' story belonged. white wolves and black wolves used to be enemies, they showcase their battle during this series.

however, this is the start of Lia(Lyka and Noah's daughter) and Mateo's story. whereas they're showcasing the vampire-wolf story.
