Season one of Fate: The Winx Saga had it all, so it’s up to season two to up the ante in every way once more.
Inspired by Nickelodeon’s animated Winx Club series, the young adult show brings its own magical blend of ancient magic, teen angst, and end-of-the-world drama. Basically, everything you need for an addictive watch.
It was an instant success, which was gratifying for the cast and crew, despite the fact that there were a few kinks that had to be ironed out quickly after backlash cast a small, but not unfixable shadow on the series overall.
So, what exactly is going on? Here’s everything you need to know about the second season.
When will Season 2 of Fate: The Winx Saga premiere?
According to Eonline, New episodes of Fate: The Winx Saga will be released on September 16. Season two, like most Netflix series, will be released in its entirety, making it ideal for a weekend binge. Even better, season two has been expanded to include more episodes than the first season – eight episodes will be included in this season’s runtime.
The show’s future beyond season two has not been confirmed, so we can only hope for a season three. However, given that Netflix has recently cancelled a slew of YA shows, the show’s success with viewers will be crucial in determining whether or not it is renewed.
Brian Young (creator of The Vampire Diaries) has confirmed that he will return as showrunner and executive producer of the supernatural coming-of-age series.
“Season one’s six episodes only scratched the surface of this incredibly rich world and its powerful fairies.
I can’t wait to tell you more about Aisha, Stella, Terra, and Musa as Bloom’s story progresses! And you never know who might show up at Alfea the following semester “He stated this in a statement.
“Winx connects with audiences in the live-action adaptation in the same way it does in the animation,” said Iginio Straffi, the original cartoon’s creator. “We have seen Winx grow into a global phenomenon over the years, and millions of fans have faithfully followed the show.”
Fate: The Winx Saga season 2 cast
Season two will feature a larger cast ready to fight the evil that is descending on the school.
Returning characters Sky (Danny Griffin), Riven (Freddie Thorp), Beatrix (Sadie Soverall), Silva (Rob James-Collier), Dane (Theo Graham), Queen Luna (Kate Fleetwood), Andreas (Ken Duken), Sam (Jacob Dudman), and Harvey join the girls on their adventures (Alex MacQueen).
They must, however, keep an eye on their backs because the evil headmistress Rosalind has returned, albeit in a new disguise. Miranda Richardson will take over the role originally played by Lesley Sharp in season one.
Daniel Betts, who starred in Gentleman Jack and War Machine, will also appear as Professor Harvey. Grey, played by Brandon Grace, and Sebastian, played by Éanna Hardwicke of Normal People, are two new students.
Fate: The Winx Saga season 2 plot
Headmistress Rosalind took over as Headmistress of Alfea College after murdering her predecessor Farah.
Meanwhile, Silva has been arrested for attempting to murder Andreas, who is still alive after surviving the battle of Aster Dell, where he was supposedly killed 16 years ago. Andreas’ return will cause a slew of issues for Sky, who also thought he was dead until the final moments of season one. Awkward.
Rosalind now has the upper hand, confident that the faculty, and thus the students, will follow suit. But you don’t have to be in the writers’ room to figure out that season two will most likely involve Alfea’s version of Dumbledore’s Army attempting to right some serious wrongs.
According to Rosalind, war is also on the horizon, with The Burned Ones pale in comparison to what lies ahead. But, exactly, what will it entail? And who will be victorious?
What we do know is that Bloom and her fairy magic will play an important role.
Abby Cowen teased the following episodes in a teaser clip: “We now have new antagonists. The school has been expanded.”
“You can expect epic fights and lots of steamy romance,” Stella’s actress Hannah van der Westhuysen added. We simply cannot wait.
