THE country’s next generation of stars, led by Andrea Brillantes, Kyle Echarri, Juan Karlos, Elijah Canlas, Zaijian Jaranilla, and Xyriel Manabat, will tackle the most pressing issues that Gen Z’s are facing today in “Senior High,” ABS-CBN and iWantTFC’s new primetime series that premieres tonight (August 28) at 9:30 PM.
The mystery-thriller series aims to shed light on important and relevant issues that individuals struggle with no matter what social class they belong to. Topics such as suicide, mental health, bullying, and peer pressure are highlighted in the series to help viewers have a better understanding.
“We tackle sensitive topics. I really don’t want to romanticize drugs, mental health, etc. I want to make this different and magkaroon talaga ng impact and makatulong talaga kami sa ibang tao na we need to take responsibility for our own life,” shared Andrea who echoed the sentiments of her co-stars.
“Senior High” opens with the reunion of twin sisters Luna and Sky, both played by Andrea, who have completely different personalities. Luna is smart and bubbly, while Sky is indifferent to others out of resentment to Luna and their mother Tanya (Angel Aquino) for abandoning her with her grandmother.
Sky will enter a whole new world when she joins Luna at the prestigious Northford High. She will get to know more about the different cliques in school, including the group of the wealthy bullies and siblings Archie (Elijah) and Z (Daniela Stranner), Z’s rockstar boyfriend Gino (Juan Karlos), and their friend Poch (Miggy Jimenez).
The other faction of students are the “good ones” who have dirty secrets of their own - Obet (Kyle) and young couple Tim (Zaijian) and Roxy (Xyriel).
The students of Northford High will be in hot water when Luna dies after falling from a balcony. It will be ruled as a suicide, but Sky is convinced that someone pushed her sister. Sky will become determined to seek justice and in the process, she will uncover a lot more shocking twists than she has ever imagined.
Did Luna really commit suicide? What are the secrets of the students?
“Senior High” is directed by Onat Diaz and Andoy Ranay, the same directors of the hit revenge series “Dirty Linen.” It also features Tommy Alejandrino, Gela Atayde, Baron Geisler, Mon Confiado, Sylvia Sanchez, Desiree Del Valle, Kean Cipriano, Ana Abad Santos, Gerald Madrid, Inka Magnaye, Angeli Bayani, Ryan Eigenmann, Rans Rifol, Rap Robes, Kakki Teodoro, and Floyd Tena.
