Season one of Fate: The Winx Saga had everything, so season two needs to up the ante in every way.
The young adult show was inspired by Nickelodeon’s animated Winx Club series. It has its own magical mix of ancient magic, teen angst, and end-of-the-world drama. Basically, it has everything a good movie should have.
It was an instant hit, which made the cast and crew happy. However, there were a few problems that they had to fix quickly after backlash cast a small, but not insurmountable, shadow on the series as a whole.
What’s going on, then? Here’s what you need to know about what will happen in season two.
When Will The Second Season: The Winx Saga Come Out
Fate: New episodes of the Winx Saga will be out on September 16. Like most Netflix shows, season two will come out all at once, making it a great choice for a weekend binge. Even better, season two has been made longer and has eight episodes, which is two more than the first season.
We don’t know what will happen to the show after season two, so all we can do is keep our fingers crossed for a season three. But Netflix just cancelled a bunch of YA shows, so a lot will depend on how well this one does with viewers before it gets the green light.
The creator of The Vampire Diaries, Brian Young, will be back as the showrunner and executive producer of the supernatural coming-of-age show. Variety confirmed the news.
“The six episodes of season one barely scratched the surface of this incredibly rich world and the powerful fairies who live there. As Bloom’s story goes on, I can’t wait for you to find out more about Aisha, Stella, Terra, and Musa! “And you never know who might show up at Alfea next semester,” he said in a statement.
“Winx connects with audiences just as well in live-action as it does in animation,” said Iginio Straffi, who made the original cartoon. “Over the years, Winx has become a worldwide sensation, and millions of fans have stuck with the show.”
Who Is In Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2
In season two, there will be more people ready to fight the evil that is coming to the school.
First of all, Bloom (Abigail Cowen from The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Aisha (Precious Mustapha), Musa (Elisha Applebaum), Terra (Eliot Salt), and Stella are back in action (Hannah van der Westhuysen).
Paulina Chávez will join them as Flora, one of the fairies from the original animated show. In the first season of Fate: The Winx Saga, the show was criticised for ignoring the character Latina and replacing her with Terra, who isn’t in the show.
Fans said that this was an example of white-washing, which the cast and crew were eager to fix.
At the start of season one’s release, Eliot Salt told Metro.co.uk, “I’m really glad that those conversations have happened and have been heard.” ” I think those are more than fair complaints, and if we get a second season, I wish we had enough power to say it would be fixed, but I’m pretty sure it will.
“The voices have been heard, and we’ve also tried to boost them as much as we can behind the scenes.”
What About The Cast In The Show
But it’s not clear if they also plan to fix the fact that there isn’t an East Asian character since the creator of the cartoon based Musa on Lucy Liu and a white actress plays the character in the series.
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 are all back to join the girls on their adventures (Alex MacQueen).
But they have to be careful because Rosalind, the evil headmistress, is back, but with a new face. In the first season, she was played by Lesley Sharp. This season, Miranda Richardson will take over her role.
Daniel Betts, who was in Gentleman Jack and War Machine, will also be in the show. He will play Professor Harvey. Grey, who is played by Brandon Grace, and Sebastian, who is played by Éanna Hardwicke from the show Normal People, are also new students.
What Will Happen In The Winx Saga Season 2
As Headmistress Rosalind took over after killing her predecessor Farah, a dark cloud fell over Alfea College.
Silva has been arrested for trying to kill Andreas, who is still alive 16 years after he was thought to have been killed in the Battle of Aster Dell. Sky, who also thought Andreas was dead until a few minutes before the end of season one, will have a lot of trouble when he comes back. awkward
Rosalind now has the upper hand and is sure that both the teachers and the students will do what she wants. But you don’t have to be in the writers’ room to know that in season two, Alfea’s version of Dumbledore’s Army will probably try to fix some big problems.
Rosalind says that war is also coming and that the Burned Ones are nothing compared to what is coming. But what will it really mean? And who will be the winner?
