In a recent interview, based on the article in ABS-CBN Entertainment, Andrea Brillante said that the series will tackle bullying, especially since this is happening in many schools. The actress shared that she was also a victim of bullying.

And mapag-uusapan din po ‘yung family issues, ‘yung mga abusive parents, pati ‘yung mga parents na they’re there pero hindi na nila alam ‘yung ginagawa ng mga anak nila,” she said. Andrea added that in the series, the sensitive of issue of ending one’s own life will also be covered.

Elijah Canlas said that this is so timely for him. He recently lost his younger brother JM Canlas and this brought certain emotions.

To be honest, nag-question ako kung kaya ko pa. But I feel like I was put on this show for a purpose. Na naging part ako ng show na ito in this moment. That’s why super focused talaga na maihatid ang tamang message instead of triggering, instead of sending the wrong message to other people,” the award-winning actor said. This is his first project with ABS-CBN.

Senior High will premiere on August 28 after The Iron Heart.
