After the first season of Fate: The Winx Saga ended on a cliffhanger, fans were desperate to know if the show would continue. Despite mediocre reviews from critics, the series, based on an Italian animated children’s series, drew in a hardcore fandom. And it seems fans’ devotion will be rewarded, as Netflix has dropped a Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2 announcement trailer letting everyone know it is indeed happening — and it’s releasing soon.

Based on Winx Club, which aired in the U.S. on Nickelodeon, Fate: The Winx Saga is a live-action version of the series following the adventures of Bloom, a fairy with fire powers. When the series begins, she discovers her abilities and enrolls at a magical boarding school in the Otherworld called Alfea College. There, she meets a group of friends, including Stella, a fashionable light fairy; Aisha, an athletic water fairy; Terra, an earth fairy; Musa, a mind fairy; and Beatrix, an air fairy who can manipulate electricity.

But Alfea isn’t all that it seems. Farah Dowling, the stern Headmistress of Alfea, has secrets she’s keeping from her students, including how hard she’s working to keep them safe. Meanwhile, Rosalind, a previous headmistress of Alfea, has plans of her own and a long game for Bloom’s future.

Here’s everything fans need to know about the second season:

Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2 First Look

A first look at Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2 was included as part of Netflix’s 2022 Geeked Week rundown of upcoming TV series. But instead of an overall trailer giving fans a look at Season 2’s story, the streamer chose to gift fans with Terra’s reunion with her cousin Flora, who is joining the series this season.

As for what dangers lurk outside the school grounds, that’s something fans will have to wait and see.

Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2 BTS Teaser

Along with the premiere date, Netflix released a BTS teaser arrived on July 27, 2022, which introduced Paulina Chávez and Brandon Grace, who join the cast this season as Flora and Grey, as well as a few other casting surprises, plus a look at this season’s monsters.

Also, Sadie Soverall returns as Beatrix, Freddie Thorp as Riven, Danny Griffin as Sky, Theo Graham as Dane, Jacob Dudman as Sam, Ken Duken as Andreas, and Rob James Collier as Silva.

Season 2 will also bring new faces to Alfea. (A new school term always brings new students, doesn’t it?) Netflix announced new cast members, including Éanna Hardwicke (Normal People) as Sebastian, Paulina Chávez (The Expanding Universe of Ashley Garcia) as Flora, and newcomer Brandon Grace as Grey.

Also joining the cast: Miranda Richardson (Good Omens), who takes over the role of Rosalind from Lesley Sharp, and Daniel Betts (The Crown) who will play Professor Harvey.

Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2 Plot

Netflix

Since Fate: The Winx Saga created a new story instead of following the original Winx Club series, it's hard to say where Season 2 will go next.

Season 1 ended with Rosalind staging a coup at Alfea. Bloom returned to school after a short break to discover it had gone from a gentle place of magical learning to a military-like institution. Moreover, although Bloom doesn't know it yet, she's a pawn in Rosalind's game. The new headmistress is convinced her pupil is the key to saving their world.

Here’s Season 2’s synopsis.

“School’s back in session under the militant authority of Alfea’s former Headmistress Rosalind. With the Burned Ones gone, Dowling “disappeared” and Silva imprisoned for treason, the Alfea of last year has grown up with new magic, new romances, and new faces. But when fairies start to go missing in the night, Bloom and her Suitemates discover a dangerous threat lurking in the shadows. One they'll have to stop before it wreaks havoc on the entire Otherworld.”

Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2 Filming Updates

Netflix’s February 2021 announcement that Fate: The Winx Saga was renewed was met with cheers from fans. Along with the teaser, Netflix revealed production “begins later this year” in Ireland.

On July 20, the production released a video showing the series' behind-the-scenes footage as it began production on the new season. The clip included the series’ cast sitting down for the table read of the production script for Season 2 of Fate: The Winx Saga. With filming wrapped as of October 2021, fans hopefully won’t have long to wait to see more from Bloom and company at Alfea.
