Netflix's Original live-action adaptation of Fate: The Winx Saga is coming back for a second season. The teen-fantasy drama series is based on the cartoon series entitled Winx Club. As a matter of fact, the renewal of this show has been announced in June 2020. But it wasn't until February 2021 when Netflix gave an official announcement on the show's future.
Following this, the producers decided to release a season 2 announcement video to confit the news.
Showrunner Brian Young shared this statement during the renewal announcement: "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 more about Aisha, Stella, Terra, and Musa! And you never know who might show up at Alfea next term.."
If you're intrigued by this show, here's everything you need to know about Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2.
Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2 Release Date
Filming for Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2 started in July 20, 2021. The production took place in Dublin, Ireland where the first season was also filmed.
And according to the social media posts of the main cast, filming lasted until November 30, 2021.
Netflix gave the public a first look into the fantasy show at its Geeked Week event held in May. More details about the show were then revealed shortly after. For starters, there will be a new fairy joining the team: Paulina Chávez, which will be playing the role of earth fairy, Flora.
Netflix also revealed Fate: The Winx Saga release date, which will happen on September 16, 2022. Unlike the first season, Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2 has a total of 8 episodes. The former season only had 6 episodes.
Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2 Story
The official synopsis of Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2 reads:
“Season 2: School’s back in session under the militant authority of Alfea’s former Headmistress Rosalind. With the Burned Ones gone, Dowling “disappeared” and Silva imprisoned for treason, the Alfea of last year has grown up with new magic, new romances and new faces. But when fairies start to go missing in the night, Bloom and her Suitemates discover a dangerous threat lurking in the shadows. One they’ll have to stop before it wreaks havoc on the entire Otherworld.”
The second season continues on after the events that transcribed in the first season. With Farah (played by Eve Best) gone, Headmistress Rosalind (played by Lesley Sharp) has taken over Alfea College. While Rosalind may feel superior and victorious now, it won't be long before the students plot to right some wrongs in the school.
Silva (played by Rob James-Collier) has also been arrested for allegedly attempting to murder Andreas (played by Ken Duken). But the truth is, Andreas is actually alive. His return after 16 years will cause a number of problems for his son Sky (played by Danny Griffin).
As for Bloom (played by Abigail Cowen), we can expect her fairy powers to grow stronger than before. In a teaser for Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2, Cowen shares that there are "new villains to the school." And according to Hannah van der Westhuysen (as Stella), we can "expect epic fights and lots of steamy romance."
Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2 Cast
While we expect the main cast to be back to reprise their roles in Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2, there are also at least three new characters joining the show. Here are the new characters we can look forward to on Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2:
- Paulina Chávez (as Flora)
- Éanna Hardwick (as Sebastian)
- Brandon Grace (as Grey)
There were earlier reports that they were looking for identical twins to be in season 2. There hasn't been any news on that development so we're looking forward to seeing the twins in the next season.
As for the main cast, we can expect these actors to return to reprise their roles:
- Abigail Cowen (as Bloom)
- Elisha Applebaum (as Musa)
- Eliot Salt (as Terra Harvey)
- Precious Mustapha (as Aisha)
- Hannah van der Westhuysen (as Stella)
- Danny Griffin (as Sky)
- Rob James-Collier (as Silva)
- Kate Fleetwood (as Queen Luna)
- Alex MacQueen (as Ben Harvey)
- Lesley Sharp (as Rosalind)
- Freddie Thorp (as Riven)
- Jacob Dudman (as Sam Harvey)
In Season 1, Eve Best did not survive in the end so we won't expect her character, Farah, to return.
