What day and time will 'Fate: The Winx Saga' Season 2 release? And everything else you need to know
'Fate: The Winx Saga' is back to take you back to the magical world of Alfea. The series is based on Nickelodeon's animated series 'Winx Club', which was created by Iginio Straffi. It is produced by Archery Pictures in association with Rainbow, a studio co-owned by Iginio Straffi and Paramount Global. Rainbow's Joanne Lee also oversaw the show as an executive producer. Apart from them, the crew behind Fate is entirely new to the 'Winx' franchise, and the writers were recruited from teen dramas like 'The Vampire Diaries'.
The series features an ensemble cast based on the characters of the animated show, with Abigail Cowen playing the lead role of Bloom. The six-episode first season debuted on Netflix on January 22, 2021, to mixed reviews as the Nickelodeon animated series had a reputation of its own. In February 2021, the series was renewed for a second season. However, fans have to decide on their own once the second season arrives whether the show is with it or not.
