The riveting saga of the Madrigal and the Roxas families will continue to entertain and affect viewers as Maging Sino Ka Man returns to the boob tube with a bigger cast and surprising twists. New additions have been made to the show that has been honored during the 2007 PMPC Star Awards for Television as the Best Drama Series.

The story revolves around the lives of the four lead characters played by John Lloyd Cruz, Bea Alonzo, Anne Curtis, and Sam Milby. Veteran actors Chin-Chin Gutierrez and Christopher de Leon play the supporting roles in this continuing saga. Joining them for Book 2 are Angelica Panganiban, Toni Gonzaga, Derek Ramsay, Phillip Salvador, and Rosanna Roces.


Book One, which ended last May, left followers of the show with more questions than answers. Jackie (Bea) and Eli (John Lloyd) are now married with the blessings of their respective parents, but will their wedded bliss continue? JB (Sam) and Celine (Anne) have vowed to not let go of the love they once lost. But is love enough to bond them together or will fate intervene?

What roles do the characters of Phillip Salvador and Rosanna Roces play in the lives of the four lead stars? What are the repercussions of their presence? What secrets are the new characters hiding?


CONTINUING SAGA. What will happen now to the Madrigal and the Roxas families?


Director Mae Cruz explains, "Actually the stories are all culled from the stories of everyone. Kaya madaling mag-relate sa stories ng Maging Sino Ka Man kasi parang mga istorya natin ito na pinagsama-sama. Kumbaga kapag pinanood mo siya, makaka-relate ka sa mga istorya ng mga characters because there is an aspect of everyone in this story."

Scriptwriter Ricky Lee, creative consultant for Book 2 of Maging Sino Ka Man, points out the difference of the first season from this new installment. "Kumbaga ang Book 2 ay mas hinog. Mas hinog yung mga emosyon, yung characters. So, kung may bago man na may pumasok, mas tumaas na yung level. Mas may emotion, may conflict. Kumbaga, aabangan niyo yung mga susunod na manyayari sa kuwento."


We catch up with the lives of the four protagonists. Jackie Madrigal (Bea) and Eli Roxas (John Lloyd) are now married. Their wedded bliss will be tested in the next few months. JB Berenguel (Sam) and Celine Magsaysay (Anne) have vowed to themselves that they will not let go of the love they once lost.


Even more questions face each of the characters. How will Eli and Fidel Madrigal (Christopher) make use of the second chance in their lives? Will Corazon Berenguel (Chin-Chin) find a way to give her son JB another chance or will she make his life a living hell? What roles will Veron (Rosanna), Lena (Angelica), Joaquin (Derek), and Mateo (Phillip) play in the lives of the protagonists?


Bea says of the upcoming series, "Sabi nga nila, expect something ‘bigger, sexier, bolder.'"

Maging Sino Ka Man Book 2 premieres on Monday, December 10, on ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida.
