Gen Z Series Finishes Off With Emotional, Stirring Finale On Sunday
TV5’s coming-of-age series brings its hard-fought emotional battles to an end.
On May 30, Sunday, the stars of “Gen Z” -- Jerome Ponce, Jane Oineza, Ricci Rivero, Melizza Jimenez, Chie Filomeno, Kent Gonzales, and Darwin Yu will bid viewers farewell with an unforgettably intriguing finale.
Born within 1997-2015, the Gen Z, or Generation Z, has emerged as one of the more fascinating segments of the population. Individuals that belong to this category are typically described as pragmatic digital natives who are politically progressive and money smart, and “Gen Z,” TV5’s family youth drama which made its debut in March, has successfully told this generation’s story of hopes, struggles, and heartaches.
Viewers witnessed the growing pains of Gen Z characters Matet (Oineza), brothers Jojo (Ponce) and Kiko/Koy (Gonzales), Michelle (Jimenez), Migo (Rivero), Gina (Filomeno), and Rico (Yu) as they stepped into young adulthood full of their dreams and ambition. Yet as the story progressed, the characters learned that life is full of challenges and responsibilities that they were not prepared for.
In its 13-episode run, the youth-family drama tackled various social issues faced in today’s reality. When the show started, the characters made us feel that they could not wait to dive into life and make their dreams come true. However, as they continued to take on the realities of our world, they crumbled in its weight, leading to dents on their mental health and struggles in their interpersonal relationships with their family and friends. The support among their peers and elders is in flux, giving viewers a glimpse of the dynamics among and between generations.
Viewers will surely be at the edge of their seats as they witness an explosive finale. With Matet dealing with mistress drama, Michelle battling depression as Migo continues to be an abusive on-and-off boyfriend, Jojo struggling to fight for his restricted relationship with Michelle, Kiko yet to reconcile with his father, Gina recovering from a miscarriage, and Rico dealing with unrequited love, viewers are left to wonder what is yet to come. Will the fate of these young adults conclude on a positive note? Or will they meet a bittersweet end?
