Just one month after Season 1 of Fate: The Winx Saga was released, Netflix released an announcement video announcing that the series would be returning for a second season.
Adapted from the hit Nickelodeon cartoon Winx Club, the show immediately became one of Netflix’s most popular teen dramas and is produced by Archery Pictures in association with Iginio Straffi’s Rainbow studio.
Over a decade ago, Straffi proposed a live-action adaptation of the series. Fate: The Winx Saga was brought to life by Brian Young, who worked as a producer on The Vampire Diaries.
Even though the basic premise is the same, there are some significant variances because Young transformed an animated series intended for young tweens into a drama more acceptable for older teenagers and young adults.
An animated series starring Molly Quinn and a live-action revival starring Abigail Cowen star Bloom, a young fire fairy. Cowen played Dorcas Night in Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Bloom goes to Alfea College, a wonderful boarding school.
Her fairy pals and non-magic partners (called Specialists) learn how to fight evil forces there. Perhaps the reboot’s popularity is because many of the kids who grew up watching Winx Club in the early 2010s are now at the perfect age to want the nostalgia of some of their favorite characters, but with the added angst of young adult themes.
Whatever the situation may be, we’re eager to see where the program goes from here. Everything we know thus far about Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2 can be found here.
When Is Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2 Filming (And When’s the Release Date)?
Season 2 of Fate: The Winx Saga will be available on Netflix in two hour-long episodes (bringing the season total to eight). With Brian Young as showrunner and producer, production began in July. A humorous behind-the-scenes video heralded the start of filming, which you can see above. Netflix, on the other hand, has yet to give an exact release date for the next new season.
We should expect Fate: The Winx Saga to return in 2022, given that filming began in the summer of 2017. Post-production may take up to eight months, so we warn people not to get their hopes up until later in the year.
What Happened in Fate: The Winx Saga Season 1?
We meet Bloom in Season 1, an Earth fire fairy with human parents who are sent to Alfea College in the Otherworld to learn how to control her abilities. Fairies in Alfea College have a wide range of magical abilities and specialize in melee combat.
Ultimately, their mission is the same: protect the Otherworld, a magical parallel universe to Earth, from the terrifying, flaming-clawed monsters known as the Burned Ones Stella (a light fairy), Aisha (a water fairy), Terra (an earth fairy), and Musa (a fire fairy) are some of Bloom’s new college roommates (a mind fairy).
While Bloom is learning out who she is and struggling to control her magic, the Burned Ones arrive on the border of Alfea. Bloom and Stella’s ex-boyfriend, Sky, have a flirtation on the sidelines. A sense of maturation pervades the entire season.
Bloom discovers that her biological parents are still alive at the end of the season. The threat of the Burned Ones is also eliminated with the help of her friends. The “Dragon Flame,” an ancient magical force Bloom is unaware she possesses, was sought out by the Burned Ones, troops from a long-forgotten war.
Rosalind, a morally dubious but powerful fairy who was imprisoned for the bulk of the season, appears to have slain Headmistress Dowling. Alfea is finally subdued by Rosalind’s militaristic grip thanks to Sky’s “believed dead” father and Stella’s mother Queen Luna in the final episode of season six. There’s also the much-anticipated reunion of Bloom and Sky.
As a result, there’s a lot of room for growth in Season 2, as well as a lot of closure. Most fans are also disappointed that the fairy show did not have any wings, so maybe that will be addressed in Season 2!
Is There a Trailer for Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2?
For the second season of Fate: The Winx Saga, we haven’t even seen the announcement of a new season. However, this page will be updated as soon as the first trailer is released, so keep a watch out. In the meantime, you can watch the video below, which serves as an announcement.
What Is the Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2 Plot?
During an interview with Abigail Cowen in January 2022, the show’s leading woman hinted that the second season would feature “more love tales, more magic, more fighting [and] more threats.” The four pals Bloom makes in Fate: The Winx Saga are not the five we see in Winx Club, as any OG Winx Club fans would know.
While Stella, Aisha, and Musa have new powers in the Winx reboot, Tecna and fan favourite Flora are no longer part of the gang. Flora, played by Paulina Chávez, is about to reenter the Otherworld, and everything is about to change. She has a cousin Terra who appears in the episode, so it will be interesting to watch how they connect.
We can only assume how the story will progress. We can hope that with the help of her new allies, Stella will find the resolve to defy her mother’s orders and fight back against the hostile takeover of Alfea.
There are also parental issues for Danny Griffin’s Sky, whose father has shown up not only alive but in a different location from where Sky expected him to be. For starters, we’re inclined to agree with Griffin that “I don’t think Sky will know where to begin.” Only time will tell if the girls will face more familiar foes this time around, but it’s a safe bet that they will.
Who Is in the Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2 Cast?
The main characters from Season 1 are expected to return for Season 2. However, given the brutality of Headmistress Dowling’s murder, it seems unlikely that we will see Eve Best reprise her role as the character.
Paulina Chávez will join the cast as Flora, and we expect to see more of Abigail Cowen, Precious Mustapha, Eliot Salt, Musa, Danny Griffin, Sadie Coverall, and Riven, Freddie Thorp, Saul Silva, Lesley Sharp, Rosalind, and Kate Fleetwood as Queen Luna.
