The fate of fans hoping and praying for Fate Winx Saga just came crashing down as Netflix has announced that there will be no new seasons for The Saga. With the latest season 2 released in 2022 itself, we all had been waiting for the adaptation of the popular Winx Club, but sadly there won’t be any new adventures anymore.
The show was released back in 2021- composed by Brian Young is based on the Italian series: Winx Club. The show has been a really popular show after COVID-19 since it gave the magical community on Netflix a new dimension. The show featured Bloom (played by Abigail Cowen), who was a fairy with fire powers and was studying in “Alfea,” which was a boarding school for magical entities in Otherworld.
Other actors who played their roles included Hannah van der Westhuysen as Stella, who represented light. Precious Mustapha as Aisha, who was the fairy of water. Eliot Salt as Terra- the fairy of earth, Elisha Applebaum as Musa- the fairy of mind.
Other actors who definitely made a place in our hearts include Danny Griffin as Sky, Sadie Soverall as Beatrix, Freddie Thorp as Riven, Robert James-Collier as Saul, Miranda Richardson as Rosalind, Theo Graham as Dane, Jacob Dudman as Sam, Ken Duken as Andreas, Brandon Grace as Grey and Paulina Chávez as Flora.
The Fate of the Saga
Fate: The Winx Saga is streaming on Netflix currently with its two seasons. In the latest season, we saw an epic battle between the specialists, with Flora, Musa, and Riven putting in their best against the scrapers.
The fairies had joined forces to take down Sebastian and had succeeded in doing so since clearly being blinded by misconceptions, and their need to save their loved ones had made them weak and Sebastian much stronger. However, as the fairies had transformed into their magical side- it took mere minutes to defeat Sebastian.
Soon things were restored to normal, but the loss of Beatrix was still fresh to all. Beatrix died during the confrontation with Sebastian and Bloom as they were discussing the fate and use of the dragon flame. On one side, Musa wasn’t happy to feel everyone’s emotions, while on the other side, Stella was devastated to find Beatrix dead.
Musa clearly had to deal with becoming an empath and completing her life in full circle. We all know how hurt and confused she was before losing her abilities as an empath, and this return won’t have been easy for her.
Toward the end, we saw Bloom sneaking out by leaving just letters for everyone as she headed down to the portal, which had opened due to the magical emission by the fairies. Bloom says her farewells to Sky, and we see an emotional moment between the lovers as Sky is scared of letting go of Bloom into the Realm of Darkness.
However, as Abigail Cowen mentioned in an interview- Bloom supposedly knew the right thing to do was find the truth about her past and find her mother since she was drawn to this place and wanted to keep the Otherworld safe.
“She feels in her heart this is where I need to go, and I don’t know why but I’m going.” Before the show could tease us more about the truth of Bloom’s past, the screen shows her on the edge of a cliff as she calls out to a woman saying, “Mum?”.
Why was Fate: The Winx Saga Cancelled?
The end of the second season left us wanting more and shocked us with the fact that Bloom was put in stasis as a baby around 1000 years ago. With finally the possibility of getting to see her mother and know the truth- we are cut short from this experience as Netflix canceled the show for any more seasons. Showrunner Brian Young took to Instagram to share this news with us.
He mentioned how the show was a silver lining to all of us during hard times, and he is glad to work with such an amazing crew to make the show a success. “I am grateful for each and every one of them and for all of you for watching” The fans are utterly shattered by this news, while some critics believe that the main reason behind the cancellation of the show was that the magical element was not properly presented in the show.
It was misleading to an extent, and the viewership was not making up for the amount that was spent on the production of the show. People who have worked on the animation and special effects for the show specified how the location, special effects, and the basic existence of the wings of the fairies took a good sum of money to make it seem effortless.
