James R | On 19, Feb 2021
Netflix has renewed Fate: The Winx Saga for a second season.
The live-action fantasy series follows the coming-of-age journey of five fairies attending Alfea, a magical boarding school in the Otherworld where they must learn to master their magical powers while navigating love, rivalries, and the monsters that threaten their very existence.
The show premiered last month, but within a few weeks Netflix has already given a green light to a second chapter. The cast set to reprise their roles include Abigail Cowen as Bloom, Hannah van der Westhuysen as Stella, Precious Mustapha as Aisha, Eliot Salt as Terra and Elisha Applebaum as Musam, with additional casting announced at a later date.
Brian Young (The Vampire Diaries) will return as Showrunner and Executive Producer. Executive Producers also set to return alongside Brian Young include: Judy Counihan and Kris Thykier from Archery Pictures (Riviera, The State) plus Joanne Lee and Cristiana Buzzelli from Rainbow.
Young says: “The six episodes in season one only scratched the surface of this incredibly rich world and the powerful fairies who inhabit it. As Bloom’s story continues to evolve, I can’t wait for you to learn even more about Aisha, Stella, Terra, and Musa! And you never know who might show up at Alfea next term…”
Iginio Straffi, creator of the Winx Club and Founder and CEO of Rainbow Group adds: “Winx connects with audiences in the live action adaptation the same way it does in animation. Over the years, we have seen Winx grow into a global phenomenon and millions of fans have faithfully followed the show. Thanks to this loyal support, ‘Fate: The Winx Saga’ is a massive worldwide success, with a second season underway at Netflix that will continue the story to the delight of fans and viewers everywhere.”
Season 2 will comprise 8 episodes, with production beginning later this year in Ireland.
Fate: The Winx Saga is available on Netflix UK, as part of an £9.99 monthly subscription.
