Encantadia: The Second Saga was supposed to be a Philippine television fantasy drama series upcoming in 2010. It is introduced by GMA Telefantasya as the fourth installment of the Encantadia-Mulawin franchise. However, this supposedly upcoming project got cancelled.
In November 2009, GMA Network formally announced that they are returning Encantadia back to the television with Suzette Doctolero and Mark A. Reyes as the writer and director, respectively. An official teaser shown during the 2009 Metro Manila Film Festival was attached to GMA Films' Ang Panday.
"This 2010, GMA-7 Kapuso Network is bringing back one of its ground breaking fantaseries, Encantadia, now with the working title Encantadia: The Second Saga. It is the fourth installment of the popular Encantadia aired in 2005. Encantadia's strong cult following will definitely be re-awakened with this treat. It just started as a spin-off to Mulawin, but Encantadia became a huge hit in Mega Manila that it was extended to its second book entitled “Etheria” and extended even further with “Encantadia: Pag-ibig Hanggang Wakas”."
Avid followers of Encantadia expected that Encantadia will be back with a more exciting story and amazing special effects. According to Direk Mark Reyes, this installment is slated to air June 6, 2010 but was not pushed through. Atty. Felipe Gozon, current Chairman and CEO of GMA Network pushed it back for 2012, but was scrapped.
The Second Saga depicts the story after the deaths of Arman and later Queen Armea, in the timeline where Cassandra is still reigning as the queen of Lireo, near to her death. The descendants of the four elemental sisters: Pirena, Amihan, Alena, and Danaya continues their legacy and starts another epic saga of Encantadia.
