Attention, winxies! In an interesting turn of events, Netflix recently dropped the release date of Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2. Season 1 had left the fans wanting more of these magic fairies and their spellbinding personalities to such an extent that Netflix had no other option than to renew the series for a second season.
For those unversed, Fate: The Winx Saga is created by The Vampire Diaries’ creator, Brian Young, who was inspired by Iginio Straffi’s animated series The Winx Club, consisting of five fairies, led by Bloom. They attend a magical boarding school called Alfea in the Otherworld.
The first season constituted only six episodes. However, they were enough to top Netflix’s daily chart, highlighting the exponential viewership of the series. On Thursday, February 18, 2021, Netflix officially renewed Fate: The Winx Saga for a second season.
If you haven’t watched the first season yet, then what are you waiting for?
