Look no further than Netflix if you’re looking for more magical mayhem. There is a new season of Fate: The Winx Saga, based on the popular children’s show, coming to our televisions this autumn. The second chapter of the fantasy series, starring Abigail Cowen, Hannah van der Westhuysen, Precious Mustapha, Eliot Salt, and Elisha Applebaum, will release on Netflix on September 16. Season 2 of Fate will introduce new characters, including Flora, played by Paulina Chávez, as well as returning favourites Bloom, Stella, Aisha, Terra & Musa as they continue to attend the magical boarding school Alfea, where they must master magic on top of all the other things that come with growing up, including young love, petty rivalries, and…monsters?
Even if they aren’t typical in childhood, we’ve all encountered a bully or two. It’ll be up to Bloom and her pals to find out what’s going on and battle any evil forces they encounter this season as new challenges arise for our beloved fairies. Additionally, Oscar-nominated Miranda Richardson is joining the cast as Alfea’s headmistress, and Daniel Betts is coming as Professor Harvey. These actors are part of a cast that also includes Danny Griffin and Sadie Soverall as well as actors like Freddie Thorp and Theo Graham.
The show is executive produced by Judy Counihan and Kris Thykier from Archery Pictures and Joanne Lee from Rainbow, and Cristiana Buzzelli from the latter two companies. Fate: The Winx Saga, based on the Italian animated series Winx Club, may bring back fond memories for many millennials and Gen Z viewers who grew up watching it. The show takes a darker approach to fairies, a topic fantasy and science fiction writers have been debating since Arthur Conan Doyle was still penning Sherlock Holmes stories. Brian Young, the man behind The Vampire Diaries, is the show’s creator, showrunner, and executive producer.
On September 16, Netflix will begin streaming season two of Fate: The Winx Saga.
Rosalind, Alfea’s former Headmistress, is back in charge, and classes are back in session. All that has changed in Alfea since The Burning Ones, Dowling’s “disappearance,” and Silva’s incarceration have been replaced with fresh magic, romance, and people. A perilous menace emerges from the shadows when fairies start going missing at night, and Bloom and her Suitemates are there to uncover it. This is a threat to the entire Otherworld that must be stopped.
