Angel Locsin and John Lloyd Cruz's characters in Imortal (2010-2011) will return to television via its sequel titled La Luna Sangre.
La Luna Sangre, the fantasy-drama series of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, is the third installment of the Lobo franchise.
Lobo, which topbilled Angel and Piolo Pascual, was aired in 2008.
In a new teaser uploaded on Star Creatives's Facebook account today, May 26, Angel and John Lloyd's respective characters Lia and Mateo will jumpstart the story of the sequel.
The teaser showed the life of Lia and Mateo six years after Imortal ended.
Lia and Mateo now resides in a small house in a barrio with a simpler life.
This is in contrast with the lavish lives that the two led in Imortal.
It was also seen that Lia and Mateo's daughter is now all-grown up as a kid.
The child is believed to be the character that will be played by Kathryn Bernardo once she grows up.
The three characters delivered the popular line heard in both Lobo and Imortal: "Hindi sa tala sa langit, kundi sa buwang nakasilip. Ibigay ang hiling ng matang nakapikit."
Lia and Mateo also participated in the fiesta in their barrio.
Imortal cast member Dino Imperial was also seen in the teaser transforming into a vampire.
The last frame showed the troubled Lia and Mateo as quick flashes of vampires and a wolf were also seen.
The confirmation that Angel and John Lloyd will have a special appearance in La Luna Sangre happened during the announcement that Angel will no longer do the Darna movie.
Angel admitted that she is excited to work with KathNiel for this TV series.
Aside from Angel and John Lloyd, former GMA-7 actor Richard Gutierrez is also rumored to have a special appearance in La Luna Sangre.
ROMCOM ASPECT. Just recently, Kathryn and Daniel did a pictorial for La Luna Sangre.
Kathryn was quoted as saying in a report by ABS-CBN News that the action-drama series will have romantic-comedy elements.
She said, "Lalagyan natin this time ng konting romcom pa din siyempre. So yun yung interesting kung paano paghahaluin yung action and romcom para balanse at saka masarap panoorin.
"Basta dito sa La Luna ngayon, lahat talaga ng emotions na gusto mo papasok – from action, drama and rom-com."
The KathNiel love team wad last seen in the romantic-comedy film Can't Help Falling In Love.
The other cast members of the series are yet to be revealed.
Without naming names, Daniel said, "Nakita na namin yung ibang kasama and doon ako na-excite.
"Noong una. parang galing kami sa Can't Help [Falling In Love], parang huwag muna tayong magsimula, may feeling na ganoon.
"Pero yung sinasabi ko nga kay Kathryn, nung nakita ko, kasi may group kami, tapos nag-send ng picture doon yung buong cast, the characters, talagang na-excite ako kasi ang galing nang pagpili ng casting nito.
"Ang ganda. I'm sure ang mga tao mismo, talagang mae-excite sila kasi ang galing, e. Bagay talaga sa kani-kanilang characters yung cast na kinuha."
No airing date has been announced yet for La Luna Sangre, but it might replace the ongoing drama series My Dear Heart, which is set to air its finale soon.
