Destiny: The Winx Saga is an adolescent drama series based on the Nickelodeon animated series Winx Club created by Iginio Straffi. It is a co-production between Archery Pictures and Rainbow, a studio co-owned by Iginio Straffi and Paramount Global. Brian Young, who also serves as showrunner and executive producer, created Fate.
Iginio Straffi initially suggested a live-action adaptation of Winx Club in 2011, after Viacom (Owner of Nickelodeon) became a co-owner of his company and began funding his ideas.
Before approving production of the series, Straffi worked as a producer for Club 57 on Nickelodeon, where he gained expertise in live-action television.
Finally, the first recordings of Fate started in September 2019 in Ireland.
Early in production, American Nickelodeon animation crew members (including Bloom’s voice actor, Molly Quinn) met with the Fate production staff to evaluate the pilot scenario.
Joanne Lee, of Rainbow, was also the show’s executive producer. The authors were hired from teen series such as The Vampire Diaries.
The ensemble cast is based on the characters from the animated series, with Abigail Cowen in the lead role as Bloom. The six-episode first season premiered on Netflix on January 22, 2021 to mixed reviews.
The series was renewed for a second season in February 2021.
The release is planned for the fall of 2022.
Fate: The Winx Saga’ Season 2 Release Date:
According to an earlier report from Variety, the filming for the second season would start in 2021. Netflix announced on Twitter on July 20 that production of the second season had officially started. Unsure of how long filming will take will continue throughout the summer and fall, paving the way for the second season of Fate: The Winx Saga to be released on Netflix in 2022.
We have exciting news regarding the release date of the second season of Fate: The Winx Saga! On June 6 during Netflix Geeked Week 2022, it was announced that the second season would premiere on Netflix in the fall of 2022. This indicates that the second season will premiere between September and December. You’ll be the first to know when Netflix reveals the official release date.
Fate: The Winx Saga’ Season 2 Cast:
Abigail Cowen, who plays Bloom in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, will no doubt return for Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2. According to the Variety article, Elisha Applebaum, Eliot Salt and Precious Mustapha have been cast.
Other brilliant individuals who should return are Hannah van der Westhuysen, Danny Griffin, Rob James-Collier, Kate Fleetwood, Alex MacQueen, Lesley Sharp, Freddie Thorp and Jacob Dudman. Eve Best, who plays Farah, didn’t survive the first season, so it’s doubtful she’ll return for season 2 of Fate: The Winx Saga.
In addition to the news that production for season 2 had begun, Netflix also announced the addition of three new cast members. Brandon Grace will play Grey, Éanna Hardwicke will play Sebastian and Paulina Chávez will play Flora. Check out their images in the gallery above!
What happened in the first season of Fate: The Winx Saga?
Bloom, a fire fairy from Earth with human parents, is recruited by Alfea College in the Otherworld to learn how to use her talents throughout the first season. Alfea College is home to fairies with a variety of magical abilities and melee combat specialists. Their ultimate goal is to protect the Otherworld, a mystical parallel world to Earth, from fearsome fire-clawed monsters known as the Burned Ones. Bloom meets friends in college when she is assigned to a room with Stella (a light fairy), Aisha (a water fairy), Terra (an earth fairy), and Musa (an earth fairy) (a spirit fairy).
In Season 1, the Burned Ones suddenly appear at Alfea’s border as Bloom tries to master her magic and figure out who she is. In addition, there are other subplots, including a relationship between Bloom and Stella’s ex-boyfriend Sky. The whole season has a sense of maturation.
Near the end of the season, Bloom discovers that her biological parents are still alive. She also eliminates the threat of the Burned Ones, with the help of her allies. We also discover that the Burned Ones were soldiers in a long-forgotten conflict who pursued Bloom for the “Dragon Flame,” an ancient magical ability she never knew she possessed.
Rosalind, a morally dubious but powerful fairy who has been locked up for most of the season, is suspected of murdering Headmistress Dowling. Alfea falls under Rosalind’s military command at the end of the sixth episode, with the help of Sky’s “presumed deceased” father and Stella’s mother, Queen Luna. Oh, and Bloom and Sky end up being a couple.
As a result, there are some unanswered questions for Season 2, as well as some issues that have been resolved. Also, practically all fans are a bit displeased that we didn’t see wings in the fairytale show, so let’s hope we get to see some in Season 2!
Fate: The Winx Saga’ Season 2 Storyline:
We don’t have much information about the upcoming season, but we do know that it will have eight episodes instead of six (more episodes = more drama). This season will delve much deeper into the stories of Aisha, Stella, Terra and Musa as they learn to manage their talents as they navigate love, rivalry and monsters.
It also looks like we’ll be seeing new faces at Alfea, their magical boarding school. Additionally, the most recent First Look teaser reveals that Flora (from the Winx Club animated series) will also be featured in Season Two. Here’s our first look at Flora in the series:
“The six episodes of the first season barely scratched the surface of this extraordinarily fascinating realm and its mighty fairies.” showrunner and creator of Vampire Diaries Brian Young stated. “Can’t wait to find out more about Aisha, Stella, Terra and Musa as Bloom’s story continues to evolve! And you never know who might be going to Alfea next semester …”
Fate: The Winx Saga’ Season 2 Trailer:
Yes! After a long wait, Netflix has finally released the first official version of season 2 of Fate: The Winx Saga. The streamer teased on YouTube on June 6: “Flora has here! Watch Paulina Chávez for the first time in Season 2 of Fate: The Winx Saga.” Let’s check out the first look of Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2 below,
