Winnebagos, listen up! Fate, the second season of The Winx Club on Netflix, has been delayed. Fans of the first season were left wanting more of these enchanted fairies after being captivated by their charisma and charm, thus Netflix renewed the show for a second season.
To shed light on this for the uninitiated, The creator of The Vampire Diaries, Brian Young, was inspired to create Fate: The Winx Saga after watching the animated series.
The Winx Club followed the adventures of a group of five fairies led by Bloom, voiced by Iginio Straffi. They spend their days at an Otherworldly boarding school with a wonderful name: Alfea.
There were just six episodes in the pilot. But that was enough to put the show at the top of Netflix’s daily chart, a remarkable statistic given the show’s meteoric rise in popularity. Netflix announced the show’s renewal for a second season on Thursday, February 18, 2021.
Fate the Winx Saga Season 2 Release Date
New episodes of Fate: The Winx Saga will premiere on September 16. The second season will premiere on Netflix in its entirety, making it the ideal choice for a lazy Sunday binge. Furthermore, the second season will consist of eight episodes, two more than the first.
It is still unknown what will happen to the show after season 2, so we can only hope that it will be renewed for a third season. However, Netflix has recently canceled a number of young adult television series, so the show’s fate will mostly depend on how well it does with viewers.
Creator Brian Young (The Vampire Diaries) has confirmed to Variety that he will be involved with the supernatural teen drama once again as showrunner and executive producer.
“The first season just scraped the surface of this tremendously complex realm and the mighty fairies who inhabit it in its six episodes. I hope you enjoy finding out more about Aisha, Stella, Terra, and Musa as the story of Bloom develops.
And next semester, at Alfea, attendance is anyone’s guess “he declared in a public declaration. The original cartoon’s creator, Iginio Straffi, has said that “Winx resonates with audiences in the live-action adaptation in the same manner that it does in animation.”
“We have witnessed Winx become a worldwide phenomenon, watched by millions of devoted fans throughout the years.”
Fate the Winx Saga Season 2 Cast
Abigail Cowen, who played Bloom on The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, will return for Season 2 of Fate: The Winx Saga. Variety lists Elisha Applebaum, Eliot Salt, and Precious Mustapha as the three main protagonists.
The outstanding Hannah van der Westhuizen, Danny Griffin, Rob James-Collier, Kate Fleetwood, Alex MacQueen, Lesley Sharp, Freddie Thorp, and Jacob Dudman, among many others, should also return. It’s quite doubtful that Farah’s voice actress, Eve Best, would return for season 2 of Fate: The Winx Saga.
In addition to the news that production on Season 2 has commenced, Netflix has also announced the addition of three new cast members. Paulina Chávez will portray Flora, Éanna Hardwicke will play Sebastian, and Brandon Grace will play Grey. See them in action in the gallery up top!
Fate the Winx Saga Season 2 Plot
The release date announcement on Netflix included brief snippets from the second season, and judging by them, things are going to grow much darker at the College now that Rosalind is in command.
Actress Abigail Cowen, who plays Bloom, promises that “season two is just a flurry of passion and adventure,” while also dropping hints about “new antagonists” and “new arrivals to the school,” in the release date announcement video.
The official plot summary for Season 2 reads as follows: “Fate: The Winx Saga” chronicles the adolescent adventures of five fairy students at Alfea, a mystical boarding school in the Otherworld, where they face off against monsters, find love, and learn to control their abilities.
Fate: The Winx Saga is a live-action adaptation of the Italian animated series Winx Club by Iginio Straffi, written and directed by Brian Young (The Vampire Diaries).
