Netflix is Making an R-Rated Version of Winx Club

Netflix may be losing The Office and a lot of Disney-owned property soon, but that isn't stopping the streaming service from pumping out some original content. Just in, news has it that they're going to be rebooting Winx Club, and it's going to be rated R.

As per Daniel Richtman:

The original Winx Club was an Italian animated series that focused on a group of girls who were fairies and attended the Alfea College of Fairies. The main character is redhead Bloom, and the series followed her and friends as they went through magic school and fought the forces of evil.

With this R-rated Harry Potter description, I'm starting to feel that this take is going to be close to Netflix's The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. That series also follows a young girl who goes to a magic school, and the series is also rife with teen romance and drama.

Will the new Winx be as dark? I guess we'll just have to wait and see. With Netflix already having Sabrina, I think they would want something with a different genre when it comes to a series about girls in a magic school. Maybe it can be more comedy this time around? Until Netflix gives us some more details, I guess all we can really do is guess.

We don't have any official release date for Winx Club yet, but if magic is your thing, you can check out The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina on Netflix. There's also the upcoming TheWitcher series starring Henry Cavill which premieres sometime later this fall.
