Growing Up (lost Filipino drama TV series; 1997-1999)
Growing Up is a Filipino TV drama series broadcast by GMA Network. It serves as a sequel to T.G.I.S. and it is also aimed towards younger audiences but more complex adolescent situations. It premiered in 1997 and ended in 1999.
The series was as popular as its predecessor, but several original cast left, marking the downfall of both T.G.I.S. and Growing Up.
Premise[edit | edit source]
The series, like its predecessor, focuses on teenage problems, but more on complex adolescent situations, like teenage pregnancy and premarital sex. The series has the Season 1 cast of T.G.I.S. but more cast were added.
Availability[edit | edit source]
Unlike T.G.I.S., the show is still lost to this day. Several scenes and low-quality camera rips resurfaced, but full episodes haven't yet resurfaced. TGIS Thank God It's Sabado uploaded the final episode albeit partially found. In 2008, YouTube user ginevrapotter001 uploaded several Growing Up episodes but their account has since been terminated.
Along with T.G.I.S., no home video releases were ever made. The only known episodes are Episode 2 "Cruise," Episode 13 "Peachy's Debut," Episode 56 "Beginnings & Endings," and Episode 79 "All Good Things...". Other partial episodes/scenes are seen online, but their title or episode number is unknown.
