Luv U (lit. Love You) was a Filipino teen comedy series which was aired every Sunday afternoons after Kapamilya Mega Blockbusters and before TV Patrol Weekend on ABS-CBN, replacing Growing Up.

Overview[edit]

Lessons in love through the eyes of six teen students of Lambertu Uy Villarama University or LUV U as they experience the highs and lows of being in love at a very young age.

In the first season, the show featured former Goin' Bulilit kids Miles Ocampo, Kiray Celis, CJ Navato and Igi Boy Flores, with singing sensation Rhap Salazar and Angeli Gonzales, and newbie teen actor Marco Gumabao.[1][2][3][4][5]

In the second season, the show will feature another batch of former Goin' Bulilit kids as newbies in the fictional university. Some former cast members from the previous season will make a return namely Smokey Manaloto, Bentong and many more. Newly added casts are also added like Eda Nolan and Alora Sasam.

The new season has a more-serious tone, it focuses not only on love but also the struggles and dilemmas of modern-day Filipino teenagers face such as bullying, friendship fall-outs, first break-up, studying difficulties, family acceptance and other real-life high school issues.
