"Imortal" airing delayed again | Angel-Lloydie fans now getting impatient

Expected to air in June then moved to August but now, it's uncertain as to when "Imortal" is going to air on ABS-CBN.

The latest thing I've heard, it will premiere anytime this year. Wow! So you guys have until December to wait for it.

With "Precious Hearts Romances Presents: Kristine" replacing "Rubi" on
August 16 and "iDOL" as a possible replacement for "Agua Bendita" this
September, it seems like "Imortal" is going to air as soon as "Magkaribal" or "Noah" ends. But both shows have just started in June
and July, thus it might take a long time for "Imortal" to have a slot on ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida block.

With that, some viewers who are anticipating for that fantasy series of Angel Locsin and John Lloyd Cruz are now growing impatient.

A campaign has been started on Twitter asking users to include "#WeWantIMORTAL" on their tweets if they want Imortal to finally air on TV.

One Twitter user, @nicoleko09, has even warned ABS-CBN of a possible
withdrawal by TFC subscribers: "We are really so crazy now #WeWantIMORTAL. Don't make us wait too long ABS-CBN. You might get
lost a million of subscribers if you still delay IMORTAL."

Some fans of John Lloyd and Angel are already missing them badly on primetime TV. We can't blame them coz it's been a year already since John Lloyd and Angel are seen on a teleserye.

Lloydie's last soap was "I Love Betty La Fea" which ended April 24, 2009, that's more than a year already. But he had two movies though
after that: "In My Life" and "Miss You Like Crazy".

It's even worse for Angel. Her last show was "Only You" (ended August 21, 2009) and she had no single movie after that. She's also celebrating her 3rd year as a Kapamilya, but she only made 2 TV series
and 3 MMK episodes in her 3-year-stay on ABS-CBN.

That's why, @joeymaunahan laments on Twitter: "Akala ko August 16 ang Imortal? Pinaasa nyo na naman kami. Halos 1 taong walang teleserye si
Angel sa inyo."

Maybe, ABS-CBN is polishing "Imortal" so much because it's a fantasy
series and it's better that way, rather than air it but still looks raw and rushed.

Judy Ann Santos' soap "Habang May Buhay" experienced the same thing of being delayed for so long and it even took 3 years before it was aired on TV.

Directed by topnotch director Chito S. Roño, Imortal also stars Rico Blanco, Precious Lara Quigaman, Chin-Chin Gutierrez, Francine Prieto, Maricar Reyes, Justin Cuyugan, Jake Roxas, Lauren Young, Ron Morales and in a special role, Jomari Yllana.
