'Fate: The Winx Saga' Renewed for Season 2 at Netflix

Netflix has renewed Fate: The Winx Saga for its second season at the streaming giant. Returning stars are set, including Abigail Cowen as Bloom,  Hannah van der Westhuysen as Stella, Precious Mustapha as Aisha, Eliot Salt as Terra and Elisha Applebaum as Musa. New casting for season two will be announced at a later date.

The show, based on the cult-classic animated 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 powers while navigating love, rivalries, and the monsters that threaten their very existence.”

“The six episodes in season one only scratched the surface of this incredibly rich world and the powerful fairies who inhabit it,” said showrunner Brian Young. “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 added, “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.”

Production on the new season will begin later this year in Ireland.
