Netflix has renew “Fate: The Winx Saga” for a second season. And this time, fans will be treated to two one-hour episodes. “The Vampire Diaries” writer Brian Young will go back to the supernatural coming-of-age series as showrunner and executive producer.
The cast set to reprise their roles comprises Abigail Cowen as the Fairy of the Dragon Flame, Hannah van der Westhuysen as the light-bending Solaria Guardian Fairy, Precious Mustapha as the Fairy of Waves, Eliot Salt within a ground fairy and Elisha Applebaum as a mind fairy. Additional casting for season two will be announced at a later date.
“The six episodes in season one only scratched the surface of this incredibly wealthy world and the powerful fairies who inhabit it. As Bloom’s story continues to evolve, I can not wait for you to learn more about Aisha, Stella, Terra, and Musa! And you never know who might show up at Alfea next semester,” stated Young in a statement.
The series comes in Archery Pictures Production in association with Rainbow, whose CEO Iginio Straffi is also the inventor of the show’s much peppier source material: the candy-coated animation confection”Winx Club.”
“Winx connects with viewers at the live-action adaptation precisely the same way it does in animation. Over the years, we’ve seen Winx grow into a worldwide phenomenon and millions of fans have followed the series,” Straffi added.
Executive producing alongside Young include coming manufacturers Judy Counihan and Kris Thykier from Archery Pictures (“Riviera,””The State”), also Joanne Lee and Cristiana Buzzelli out of Rainbow.
“Fate: The Winx Saga” was premiered internationally on Jan. 22, 2021. Production for the next time, that will bring the girls back into the Otherworld to learn to master their abilities while navigating love, rivalries, evil and monsters, will start later this year in Ireland.
