Severino draws inspiration from the story of Juan Severino Mallari, a Filipino Catholic priest in Magalang, Pampanga. He gained notoriety as the first documented serial killer in the Philippines, responsible for the deaths of 57 individuals.

Moreover, reports detailed that Severino’s crimes are motivated by his relentless pursuit to eliminate a curse on his ailing mother. It was in 1840 when he faced death by execution as punishment for his crimes. 

Meanwhile, fans expressed their support and anticipation for Trillo’s role in the supernatural arthouse drama. They proclaimed that the actor would surely showcase another noteworthy performance and uplift his already high status on television.
