In a report on 24 Oras, director Mark said that as early as 2009, they have been preparing for the show’s reboot, calling it a “requel” or the retelling of the story.

It was previously announced that Marian Rivera will play the role of Mine-a or Ynang Reyna (Queen Mother) in the show. Starstruck winners Klea Pineda and Migo Adecer were also confirmed to be part of the cast. 


In 2010, a new series titled Encantadia: The Second Saga was in the plans of GMA. However, the project was put on hold.

Encatandia was a popular “fantaserye” which first aired in 2005, and spawned two sequel series, Etheria: Ang Ikalimang Kaharian ng Encantadia and Encantadia: Pag-Ibig Hanggang Wakas. –
