The Cast Of “Spirits”: Where Are They Now?
On December 2004, ABS-CBN aired a show with a supernatural theme called Spirits. It's been almost 14 years since the primetime series about teens with special abilities living in a strange town made a mark on the Filipino audience.
Spirits was the teleserye debut of renowned film director Chito Roño who's also behind the Spirit Warriors movies. Its theme song - "You'll Be Safe Here" by Rivermaya (which was still fronted by Rico Blanco back then) - topped the MYX charts and won Favorite Media Soundtrack in the 2006 MYX Music Awards.
