In an interview with "The Buzz," Cruz said the series will end after 6 months of “hard work and love.”
"It's been quite a journey for me kasi sabi ko nga bago kami nagsimula, ngayon lang ako papasok sa ganitong genre, ‘yong [fantaserye]," Cruz said.
When asked what made him accept the project, Cruz, who is known for being good dramatic actor, said: "Hindi naman puwedeng ganoon at ganoon na lang ang ginagawa natin. Gusto ko ding [maiba] kasi it's a way of giving back to my audience."
When asked if he would consider his character in "Imortal" as his best role yet, Cruz replied: "I'd say this one is very memorable. Ngayon lang ako nag-leather jacket sa Maynila para sa show na ito. Imagine mo mag-leather jacket sa Quiapo."
"Imortal", which started airing on Oct. 4, 2010, tells the story of how great love can stop the centuries-old war between werewolves and vampires.
Lia (Locsin), a half human, half werewolf who is out to redeem the honor of her parents, will find herself falling in love with Mateo (Cruz), the next most powerful vampire.
As faith dictates, the two were born with special birth marks symbolizing their power. Lia and Mateo are destined to become mortal enemies, but love will change everything.
“Imortal” also stars Maricar Reyes, Rico Blanco, Jomari Yllana, Jake Roxas, Vivian Velez, Johnny Revilla, and Jaime Fabregas.
The pilot episode of the show was directed by Chito S. Roño. Other directors of the TV series are Jerry Lopez-Sineneng, Trina N. Dayrit and Richard V. Somes.
