MANILA -- Don't worry, "KathNiel" fans. The next big TV project of teen idols Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla continues to make progress, despite an earlier announcement that its scheduled telecast has been postponed.

"Got to Believe," which marks the first time director Cathy Garcia-Molina ("It Takes a Man and a Woman," "One More Chance") will work with the well-loved tandem, resumed taping last week to complete scenes featuring lead characters Chichay (Bernardo) and Joaquin (Padilla).

As if to assure fans the project is still ongoing, the production team behind "Got to Believe" took to social networking site Facebook Monday to share behind-the-scenes photos of the highly anticipated series.

The photos, among them of a sequence guide print-out that alerted avid followers of "spoilers," quickly became viral on micro-blogging site Twitter, to make the hashtag "#GottoBelieve" trend nationwide Monday night.

According to the sequence guide -- spoiler warning -- Chichay, at some point in the story, will be tasked to take care of Joaquin.

In the first trailer for the series released in June, the lead characters are seen as childhood friends from different backgrounds -- Chichay is a girl with big dreams for her tight-knit family, while Joaquin is a rich but lonely boy with parents on the verge of separating.

While they become close as kids, the two part ways when Joaquin is hit by a stray bullet to the head. But as fate would have it, the two as teens literally bump into each other at the same place they first met.

First announced in May, "Got to Believe" was initially slated for a Primetime Bida debut in July.

However, ABS-CBN, in a statement released early this month, said that while it is "as excited as the viewing public [for the premiere of the series]," it has decided "to postpone the airing until enough episodes are canned."

"Got to Believe," along with the Julia Barretto-starrer "Mira Bella" and the drama series "Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin," are among the several upcoming ABS-CBN soap operas known to be in the works.
