Netflix released an announcement video in mid-February of last year, only one month after Season 1 of Fate: The Winx Saga premiered, revealing the series has been renewed for a second season. The show, which has swiftly become one of Netflix’s most popular teen dramas, is based on the popular Nickelodeon animated series Winx Club and is produced by Archery Pictures in collaboration with Rainbow, the studio founded by Winx Club creator Iginio Straffi.
Over a decade ago, Straffi proposed a live-action adaptation of the series. Brian Young, who worked as a producer on The Vampire Diaries, was responsible for bringing Fate: The Winx Saga to life.
The idea has remained largely consistent, with the main modifications stemming from Early’s adaptation of an animated series aimed at young tweens into a drama aimed at older teenagers and young adults. Bloom, a little fire fairy played by Molly Quinn in the animated series and Abigail Cowen in the live-action adaptation, is at the core of the story.
Cowen is most known for her role as Dorcas Night on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Bloom enrolls at Alfea College, a magical boarding school. She and her fairy companions, as well as their non-magic partners (known as Specialists), learn the skills needed to combat the forces of darkness there. Many of the kids who watched Winx Club in the early 2010s have now grown to the near-perfect age where they want the nostalgia of some of their favorite characters, but with the added angst of young adult themes.
This could be why the reboot has been so successful in terms of appeal, despite not receiving critical acclaim.
In any case, we’re excited to see where the program goes from here. So, without further ado, here’s what we know about Fate so far: Season 2 of the Winx Saga
When Will Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2 Begin Filming (And When Will It End)?
Season 2 of Fate: The Winx Saga will be available on Netflix once more, with two new hour-long episodes (bringing the season total to eight). Brian Young is still the showrunner and producer, and filming began in July. Filming began with the release of a hilarious behind-the-scenes video, which you can see above. Netflix, on the other hand, has yet to confirm a specific release date for the next season.
Given that filming began in the summer of last year, we can anticipate a return of Fate: The Winx Saga in 2022. Post-production might take up to eight months due to the extensive usage of special effects, so we wouldn’t get our hopes up until later in the year at the earliest.

What Happened in Season 1 of Fate: The Winx Saga?
Bloom, a fire fairy from Earth with human parents who are enlisted by Alfea College in the Otherworld to learn how to utilize her talents, is introduced in Season 1. Alfea College is home to fairies with a variety of magical abilities as well as melee specialists. Their ultimate purpose is to protect the Otherworld, a mystical parallel world to Earth, from terrifying, fiery-clawed monsters known as the Burned Ones.
When Bloom is placed in a boarding room with Stella (a light fairy), Aisha (a water fairy), Terra (an earth fairy), and Musa (an earth fairy), she makes friends (a mind fairy).
Bloom is figuring out who she is and trying to control her power when the Burned Ones unexpectedly emerge on the border of Alfea in Season 1. There are also several subplots, such as Bloom’s flirtation with Stella’s ex-boyfriend Sky. The entire season has a feeling of coming of age to it.
Bloom learns that her birth parents are still alive at the end of the season. She also eliminates the menace of the Burned Ones with the help of her friends. The Burned Ones were soldiers in a long-forgotten conflict who sought Bloom out in search of the “Dragon Flame,” an ancient magical power she is unaware she possessed.
Headmistress Dowling is allegedly assassinated by competitor Rosalind, a morally dubious but powerful fairy who spent the majority of the season imprisoned. With the help of Sky’s “believed to be dead” father and Stella’s mother, Queen Luna, Alfea falls under Rosalind’s militaristic authority in the sixth episode. Oh, and Bloom and Sky get together at long last.
So there’s a lot to look forward to in Season 2 as well as a lot to wrap up. Also, virtually everyone is disappointed that we didn’t get to see any wings in the fairy show, so perhaps that will be addressed in Season 2!
Is there a trailer for Season 2 of Fate: The Winx Saga?
We haven’t seen a trailer for Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2 yet, despite the announcement of a new season. However, keep an eye on this page for updates as soon as the first trailer is out. While you’re waiting, watch the announcement video in the player above.
What is the plot of Season 2 of Fate: The Winx Saga?
Abigail Cowen revealed in our January 2022 interview that the next season will feature “more love stories, more magic, more combat, [and] bigger threats,” as well as the entrance of some new, and oddly, some old, characters. The four pals Bloom makes in Fate: The Winx Saga are not the same five we meet in Winx Club, as any OG Winx Club fan would know.
While Stella, Aisha, and Musa have distinct powers in the Winx reboot, we are missing two members of the original gang: Tecna and fan-favorite Flora. All of that is about to change as Flora, played by Paulina Chávez, prepares to reenter the Otherworld. So there’s something to anticipate, and it’ll be interesting to see how she interacts with her show’s cousin, Terra.

Who Is in the Season 2 Cast of Fate: The Winx Saga?
We can expect the key actors from Season 1 to return for Season 2, although considering Headmistress Dowling’s violent death, it’s unlikely we’ll see Eve Best’s, Headmistress Dowling. We’re excited to welcome Paulina Chávez as Flora, and we’re looking forward to seeing a lot more of Abigail Cowen as Bloom, Precious Mustapha as Aisha, Eliot Salt as Terra Harvey, Elisha Applebaum as Musa, Danny Griffin as Sky, Sadie Soverall as Beatrix, Freddie Thorp as Riven, Robert James-Collier as Saul Silva, Lesley Sharp as Rosalind, Kate Fleetwood as Queen Luna, and
