Everything We (Already) Know About ‘Fate: The Winx Saga’ Season 2

Addicted to Fate: The Winx Saga already? Same! Hard same. Season 1 follows Bloom, a new student at a school for fairies to learn magic (called Alfea). The series is not, as I originally thought, based on Harry Potter fanfiction. It’s based on Winx Club, an animated series from the 2000s that I totally missed somehow. The show was pretty much like “what if the Spice Girls were fairies,” and I’m all for that. If you went through season 1 like magic, here’s everything we know, and some things we don’t know, about Fate: The Winx Saga season 2.

Do we know Fate: The Winx Saga is getting a season 2?

No. A second season has not been officially announced, but it’s not really in character for Netflix to cancel a show after only one season. Seriously, it’s almost guaranteed that a Netflix original series gets at least two. There are a handful of shows that hit it off with fans and got canceled after one season (The Society, Spinning Out, Astronomy Club, The Dark Crystal) but it’s still pretty rare. Fate: The Winx Saga is the latest fantasy/science fiction series on Netflix, and shows like that (Stranger Things, The Witcher, The Umbrella Academy) tend to do really well.

Plus, the first season only has six episodes. It would be so easy to pop out another, right?

What will season 2 be about?

[There are some spoilers ahead for season 1. Do with that information what you will!] There are, like, eight seasons of the animated series, so your guess is as good as mine. The Winx will probably face off against a new villain now that they’ve defeated the Burned Ones. The cartoon has a rival school for witches and an antagonistic trio called the Trix (Icy, Darcy, and Stormy) that one would assume need to show up on the Netflix show eventually.

There are also more Winx that need to be added in Season 2! Familiar mainstays like Bloom, Stella, Aisha, Musa are all there. Terra is a new character on the Netflix series, kind of like Flora from the cartoon, but not really. Then there’s Roxy.

When will season 2 come out?

Provided it happens, best guess is that we won’t see season 2 until 2022. However, since the seasons are so short, there is a slim possibility that The Winx Saga could surprise fans with another short season before the end of 2021, but that’s purely speculation. Don’t mark your calendars, or anything.

What the heck am I supposed to watch until season 2?

You don’t even need to leave Netflix to find more awesome shows with Winx Saga vibes while we wait for news about season 2. There’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, the spooky Sabrina The Teenage Witch reboot that also features Fate: The Winx Saga star Abigail Cowen. There’s The Magicians, a dark and sexy show about a group of misfit millennials at magic grad school. You could also get into The Order, which is about a university’s secret society that does magic (I knew it) and also werewolves! We’ll probably learn more about the fate of Fate: The Winx Saga soon, so just hang tight until we do.
