Encantadia is returning to TV
The fantaserye is back!
(SPOT.ph) Marimar isn't the only GMA 7 show with a TV comeback. On November 5, a report from 24 Oras hinted at the possibility that the Encantadia would be returning to primetime in 2016.
While GMA Chairman and CEO Atty. Felipe L. Gozon didn't directly confirm the news, he said that viewers can look forward to a new lineup of shows airing late this year and into 2016.
However, director Mark Reyes (who helmed the fantaserye in 2005) has gone with a more direct approach. On his Instagram account (above), he pretty much confirmed the show's comeback for 2016, but didn't say whether he would be returning to direct the new show. It is also still unclear if the new show will be a reboot or a continuation of the saga.
Encantadia was a major success during its original airing, even spawning two spin-offs. The show told the magical story of four sisters Pirena (Sunshine Dizon), Alena (Karylle), Amihan (Iza Calzado), and Danaya (Diana Zubiri), who guard four gems that protect and give life to their mythical world. Three of its main stars—Iza, Karylle, and Diana—have all switched networks.
So far, no official announcement from the network has been made.
