Fate the Winx Saga Season 2: What We Know So Far
Fate the Winx Saga; Technical Details and Release Date
The popular Netflix series is the latest addition to the Winx Club Franchise, which has made its name across the world as one of the best fairy tales. The series has been co-produced by Archery Pictures, Rainbow S.p.A and YoungBlood Productions. The directors of part one include Lisa James Larsson, Hannah Quinn, and Stephen Woolfenden.
The six-episode-based season one offers a sneak peek into the life of Bloom the earliest member of the Winx Club who joins the academy to improve her magical skills and befriends some other fairies in the process. Immediately after the end of season one, Netflix announced that it will be coming up with a sequel for the series as the story has just started.
Later on, in 2021, it was announced that the actors have started filming for the project, which is expected to be released sometime towards the end of 2022. We might also get to see an early 2023 release since season one also premiered during the Christmas holidays.
Whom Will We See in Season 2?
Well, the similar actors will be reprising their roles from season one, which is definitely good news for the viewers as well as the ardent fans of the actors. Our inside sources have revealed that we will also get to see some new additions to the cast which is mainly because of the introduction of other characters in the story including Flora, which is expected to be played by Paulina Chavez, Grey which will be played by Brandon Grace, and Sebastian played by Eanna Hardwick.
While both Sebastian and Flora were previously seen in the Winx Club animated series that has been released for more than six seasons, no account of the character named Grey is present in the anime. Therefore, we believe that it is most likely to be a new entry that has been introduced into the plot to engage the audience and offers a new twist to the plot. Insiders have revealed that Grey will be introduced as a love interest for Aisha in the upcoming season which is expected to have eight episodes in total.
Fate the Winx Saga Season 2; Underlying Controversies
It is inevitable for such a highly anticipated series to not land in trouble before and after its release. The majority of the controversies about the series are related to the cast. As indicated in Winx Club, Musa is a fairy that was created on the inspiration of a Chinese American actress, and therefore, the character displays Chinese descent.
However, instead of an Asian actress, a non-Asian actress has been hired to play the role, which does not sit well with the audience. Apart from this, viewers also have some reservations about the cast members that are playing the roles of other fairies, especially Flora, who is going to be introduced in the next season.
