Fate: The Winx Saga

Seasons: 2

The intersection of teen dramas and supernatural fantasy series might be one of the most well-tread genres on television. Even if a teen drama isn’t in the supernatural and/or fantasy realms, genre-leaning teen dramas are definitely the new 90210. Luckily, there is no shortage of teen dramas with extra oomph on Netflix, including the hit Fate: The Winx Saga.

Based on the Italian-American animated series Winx Club by Iginio Straffi that aired on Nickelodeon, Fate: The Winx Saga is a live-action reimagining. The series follows Bloom (Abigail Cowen), a 16-year-old fairy with fire powers, as she begins attending the magical Alfea College boarding school in the Otherworld, along with new pals Stella (Hannah van der Westhuysen), Aisha (Precious Mustapha), Terra (Eliot Salt) and Musa (Elisha Applebaum).

Fate: The Winx Saga debuted its six-episode first season on Netflix in January 2021 and was renewed for a second season less than one month later in spite of negative reviews from critics. Although the series wasn’t heavily reviewed, Fate holds a lackluster 45% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which only seems to denote it’s a niche series for a very specific audience. If that’s you, join these fairies for some fun. If not, you might want to sit this one out.

The second season debuted in 2022 but the show was canceled shortly after.

Verdict: SKIP
