Fate: The Winx Saga Canceled by Netflix After 2 Seasons

Netflix has canceled “Fate: The Winx Saga” after two seasons, series creator and showrunner Brian Young shared on Instagram.

“Hi all! So this is not fun news to share, but Netflix has decided not to move forward with Season Three of Fate: The Winx Saga,” he wrote. “This is especially tough because I know how many of you love [Season 2]. It’s a heartbreaking silver lining, but silver lining all the same.”

“I’m so proud of everyone who worked on the show, and so happy we got to tell the stories we did,” Young continued. “Our cast and crew put in a ton of hard work creating the world and these characters. I’m grateful for each and every one of them, and for all of you for watching.”

“It’s been an amazing four years,” he concluded. “Hopefully we’ll see each other again in the future.”

“Fate: The Winx Saga” followed the coming-of-age journey of six fairies attending Alfea, a magical boarding school in the Otherworld where they must learn to master their powers while navigating love, rivalries, and the monsters that threaten their very existence. Young’s series was a live-action reimagining of the Italian cartoon “Winx Club” from Iginio Straffi.

The second (and now final) season saw the fairies terrorized 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 the previous year had changed quite a bit. But when fairies start to go missing in the night, Bloom and her Suitemates discover a dangerous threat lurking in the shadows, the Netflix logline reads. One they’ll have to stop before it wreaks havoc on the entire Otherworld.

In addition to Young, “Fate: The Winx Saga” was executive produced by Judy Counihan and Kris Thykier. The second season of “Fate” came out September 16 on Netflix. That season was in Netflix’s Top 10 as recently as two weeks ago. It was the fifth time Season 2 made the list.
