The live-action adaptation of the animated series Winx Club enters its second round. The upcoming sequel will not exceed Season 1 and will at least include three new characters.
“Fate: The Winx Saga,” a new Netflix show, was released in January 2021. The series features the fairies Bloom (Aisha), Terra, Stella, and Moosa as they go about their daily lives at Alfia Boarding School. The witches will need to learn to control their element, but there are dangerous and serious challenges.
Nickelodeon has shown the live-action reboot to “Winx Club” since 2004. It has been well received by Netflix viewers, who confirmed it will continue its run upon its release. Season 2 will include two more episodes than the first. This season, there are eight episodes.
Season 2 Production Of “Fate: The Winx Saga” Has Been Confirmed
The drama series, “Fate: The Winx Saga”, is produced and distributed by Archery Pictures. It can be viewed on Netflix. It is based upon the animated series Winx Club. The story of five fairies is told. The first season, which was based on the real-life series, did not premiere until January 2021. But Netflix decided to continue the series one month later. Video streaming provider Netflix announced the sequel in an announcement.
Netflix shared a short behind-the-scenes video and an official confirmation on Twitter and Instagram that production had begun for season 2. Three new actors are now available: Brandon Grace plays Gray, Eanna Hardwicke plays Sebastian and Paulina Chuz as Flora. The new season is being filmed in County Wicklow in Ireland. No release date has been announced.
Allegations Against “Fate: The Winx Saga”
“Fate: The Winx Saga”, even before it was released, faced a storm. YouTube users complained about the series’ dark appearance in comparison to the brightly-colored cartoon series when Netflix first showed the trailer. The costumes were also criticized, as was Terra’s portrayal of Musa.
The series creators were accused of whitewashing. The Asian Musa, as seen in the original series, is played by a White actress in “Fate: The Winx Saga”. Terra appeared to have replaced Flora, a fairy of Latin American descent. Brian Young, showrunner says Terra is Flora’s relative. So, there is still hope Flora could appear in season 2 as she will be embodied also by a Latina.
