Top rating fantasy series Bagani is on its final stretch, the heroes of Sansinukob will face a difficult dilemma as they fight evil to protect their home from destruction.
At the media conference held over the weekend, lead cast Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil talked about what fans can anticipate from the series before it fades out on television.
“We have a little surprise for our viewers, we hope fans will not be able to predict the ending because they are very good at guessing what the ending is going to be,” Enrique told the press.
The future of Sansinukob hangs in the balance as the monster inside Ganda (Liza) gets stronger each moment she does not get the cure. That is why she and Lakas (Enrique) must push on with their journey in search of the Puso ng Sinukuan despite the many obstacles in their way.
Though the people of Sansinukob have banded together against Malaya (Kristine Hermosa), who planted the monster in Ganda, they remain worried about their fate should their heroes fail to reach the cure in time and the monster overtakes Ganda to bring about the destruction of their home.
Can Lakas, Lakam (Matteo Guidicelli), Dumakulem (Makisig Morales), and Liksi (Zaijian Jaranilla) muster the courage to sacrifice their fellow Bagani to secure Sansinukob? Will Lakas and Ganda ever find the cure in time?
“It’s common to all Bagani characters, their strength is not just their being heroes and their love for one another, but also their love for their country and for their tribe. In our final week, that’s what people will see,” Liza shared.
Since its premiere in March, Bagani has been continuously well received by viewers. It received an all-time high national TV rating of 36.2 percent last April 17, according to data from Kantar Media.
The show has also won the hearts of netizens with its hashtags trending all over the world on Twitter. It was also named as one of the most talked about series in the country in the first half of 2018, according to the Twitter Entertainment Index, a list of the most talked about topics on the social networking site.
“It opens a lot of doors for shows that ABS-CBN is going to do in the future. We’re used to doing shows not similar to Bagani, this is something new for us. It challenges us as actors and it’s good that the network experimented and ventured out by coming up with something like this big,” Enrique noted adding that he’s proud that ABS-CBN produced a show that many could learn from in terms of its technical aspect.
Agreeing with her love team, Liza believes that Bagani can serve as a prototype of other shows similar to Bagani.
“It’s a good stepping stone for us, we’ve learned so many lessons from the series especially in the acting techniques thought to us during taping. Now for the network, Bagani helps a lot. In the future, if they will make another series similar to Bagani, at least they’d already know how to improve the series, where to start and what to add to make the series much more enjoyable for the viewers.”
Meanwhile, Bagani’s online version, Bagani World, gave users the chance to be heroes of a digital Sansinukob. Although the website will close once the show bids its farewell, its stories will continue in “BAGANI: Beyond Sansinukob” on NoInk, ABS-CBN’s online reading platform.
Tune in to the last week of Bagani to find out what will happen to Sansinukob and its heroes. Watch it every night after FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano on ABS-CBN.
