Is there a Fate: The Winx Saga season 2 release date? The original Netflix series, which is loosely based on animated series Winx Club, has been a hit for the streaming service ever since season 1 dropped in January 2021. Following in the footsteps of Bel-Air and The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Fate: The Winx Saga is the latest Riverdale-ification of popular childhood TV series‘.

The concept itself seemed destined to be a hit and miss, but with former Vampire Diaries showrunner Brian Young at the helm, the teen drama series definitely turned out to be a hit. Reimagined versions of beloved characters like Bloom, Aisha, and Stella,  captivated audiences, with season 1 amassing 918 million minutes in combined viewership within days of its release on the platform.

Needless to say, given the clear demand, a follow-up season was inevitable. I, for one, can’t wait to return to the halls of Alfea College, so let’s get straight to the point: namely, the Fate: The Winx Saga season 2 release date, plot, cast, and more.

“The six episodes in season one only scratched the surface of this incredibly rich world and the powerful fairies who inhabit it,” showrunner Brian Young explained in a statement to Variety.

“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.”

Netflix had previously released a short teaser for the second season which mainly served to introduce Flora (Paulina Chavez), the cousin of Terra (Eliot Salt). In the teaser, Terra and Flora can be seen embracing after an unexpected reunion.

Fate: The Winx Saga season 2 plot speculation

Season 2 of Fate: The Winx Saga will likely follow from season 1, which sees the evil Rosalind take over as Headmistress of Alfea College after murdering Farah in cold blood.

In Netflix’s date announcement for the series, small clips from season 2 are shown — and from these clips, it definitely looks like things are about to get a lot darker at the College with Rosalind in charge.

Abigail Cowen, who plays Bloom in the series, also teases “new villains” and “new additions to the school” in the date announcement video, adding that “season two is just a whirlwind of emotion and adventure.”

“From creator Brian Young (The Vampire Diaries), Fate: The Winx Saga is a live-action reimagining of the Italian cartoon series Winx Club by Iginio Straffi.”
