The epic battle between two blood lines will begin on primetime television starting Monday, October 4.
Imortal, the fantasy series starring Angel Locsin and John Lloyd Cruz, is considered to be the sequel to Lobo because it features some elements from the previous fantaserye. In Lobo, Angel brought life to the character of Lyka, a woman who could transform into a powerful werewolf.
Angel’s performance in Lobo earned her a nomination in the 37th International Emmy Awards. The Kapamilya star was one of four nominees for the Best Performance by an Actress category. However, she lost to Julie Walters, who starred in a show produced by BBC.
Lobo was co-directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina and E. M. Reyes. This time, Imortal is helmed by Chito Roño, the same director behind the box-office horror films Sukob and Feng Shui. Serving as co-directors are Jerry Sineneng and Trina Dayrit.
Imortal will depict the centuries-old battle between vampires and werewolves. Mythology states that vampires came to the land seeking human blood. In response to the threat posed by vampires, the clan of werewolves rose to the challenge of protecting mortals from the blood suckers. The vampires were almost wiped out but the remaining members of the clan vowed to exact revenge on the werewolves.
In Imortal, Angel will once again assume the character of a she-wolf as she brings life to the character of Lia, a descendant of Lyka. John Lloyd will display extraordinary abilities as Mateo, a vampire who will be attracted to Lia.
Can their forbidden love overcome their destiny?
