Maria, Paolo Contis, Desiree del Valle, Baron Geisler, and Kaye Abad who played best friends. It gained a cult following among the youth and garnered a PMPC Star Award for Television’s Best Youth-Oriented Program.

It’s unclear whether Tabing Ilog: The Musical will be a retelling of the original story or an update on the characters’ lives after the ending shown on the series.
