Netflix has today confirmed the renewal of its original series ‘Fate: The Winx Saga’ for a second season at the streamer.

From the ‘Vampire Diaries’ creator Brian Young, season one follows the coming-of-age journey of five 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.

The season two order includes 8 one-hour episodes and will see the cast reprise their roles including Abigail Cowen as Bloom, Hannah van der Westhuysen as Stella, Precious Mustapha as Aisha, Eliot Salt as Terra and Elisha Applebaum as Musa. Additional casting news for season two will be announced at a later date.

Showrunner Brian Young says: “The six episodes in season one only scratched the surface of this incredibly rich world and the powerful fairies who inhabit it. As Bloom’s story continues to evolve, I can’t wait for you to learn even more about Aisha, Stella, Terra, and Musa! And you never know who might show up at Alfea next term…”

Production for Season 2 will begin later this year in Ireland.
