In a series of post on Twitter, Cuneta said: "I am going to drop clues every now and then as to the things I will be working on which will start sooner than you think!. So keep watching out for those clues. Goodnight, everyone! Sweet dreams and May God bless you always!"

The announcement of the veteran actress came 12 days after she posted an open letter on her Facebook page in which she apologized to her fans for “mistakes that have affected all that I have worked for, bled for over the past thirty-six years”, not least of which was her failure to curb her weight problems.

"I just do not like being big and fat because of the demands of this industry I move around in. And also, I have always enjoyed wearing my kind of clothes," she said.

On Saturday, TV5 issued this brief statement, it says: “TV5 wishes to extend its gratitude to Ms. Sharon Cuneta for being part of the Kapatid Network for almost three years. The network wishes her well in all her future endeavors.”

Cuneta has promised to “go back to basics in the coming weeks." Meanwhile, the new network and projects of the Megastar are not yet revealed.

In 2012, Sharon signed the controversial P1-billion contract with the Manny V. Pangilinan-owned TV network.

“In my desire to venture into new territory and broaden my world, with the intention of giving you, my fans, supporters, and friends the rest of the best of me that I still had left, I made certain decisions that in the end, turned out to be of the wrong kind,” she said in her lengthy Facebook post.

Cuneta starred three shows in TV5 - the talk show “Sharon: Kasama Mo, Kapatid”, the sitcom “Madam Chairman” and the musical variety show “The Mega and the Songwriter” opposite Ogie Alcasid. She also had a co-hosting stint on “Pinoy Explorer”, the travel show hosted by fellow ABS-CBN alumnus Aga Muhlach.
