Netflix Gives Fate: The Winx Saga A Second Season
Production on the upcoming eight new episodes will begin later this year.
Netflix has renewed Fate: The Winx Saga for a second season, which will begin production in Ireland later this year. The first season debuted on the streaming service on January 22, so it's safe to say that the teen drama has quickly proven popular.
Fate: The Winx Saga follows the coming-of-age journey of five fairies attending Alfea, a magical boarding school where they, according to the official synopsis, "must learn to master their powers while navigating love, rivalries, and the monsters that threaten their very existence." 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 Musa. Additional casting news for season two will be announced at a later date.
The Netflix version is a live-action adaptation of the Nickelodeon animated series which ran for 208 episodes and four hour-long specials since starting in 2004 until 2009 and later being revived in 2011 and is still going strong. The Netflix version is just getting going--its first season spanned six episodes, and Season 2 will, according to a release, will consist of eight one-hour episodes.
"The six episodes on Season 1 only scratched the surface of this incredibly rich world and the powerful fairies who inhabit it," says 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."
