Fate: The Winx Saga, season 1 came to an end very dramatically, it has left some amazing twists and mysteries. What actually happened in season 1 and what can you expect from season 2? Here is what you need to know.
This latest live-action adaptation of the classic Winx Club cartoon came with its first season and left the audience with plenty of questions and mysteries. Considering the fact that the series is renewed for another, season 1 mostly came out as a setup for what is coming, with only six episodes to set up the world, magic, and characters, the ending of season 1 has successfully packed in some major twists, of course, there is a lot for fans to find out.
As the series is completely based on Winx Club, this series has come up with some significant changes to the world of Fairies and magical creatures. The entire show is set in the Otherworld, paralleled to Earth’s, a magical dimension, where fairies utilize elemental magic to connect and communicate with the natural world. The story follows a young fire fairy- Bloom, and her friends who are studying magic and some ways to fight evil at a Hogwarts-style school named Alfea.
In the first season, you will find it perfectly spent setting up backstory for Bloom and her friends, and the world they live in. Water, fire, air, earth, light, and mind are the six amazing types of magics that have been explained, Alfea’s complicated military history is unearthed, and you can see the return of some previously-vanquished villains, all of them having their own unique characters. The ending of season 1 takes some major steps, there are some major questions hanging.
How does season 1 end?
It all ended with some major events, it has been such a long process looking for information on her birth parents, Bloom comes to know about a town that was completely removed by Rosalind, the former headmistress of Alfea, it all happens in a zealous attack against the Burned Ones- Aster Dale. Later, Rosalind tricks Bloom into setting her free and subsequently taking down the magic barrier protecting Alfea. The Burned Ones are interrupting and the entire staff, as well as students, gather to compete.
Rosalind gives information to Bloom that Aster Dale was completely destroyed as all the residents were evil Blood Witches. Now, Bloom decides to help her friends, she needs to face a full force of Burned Ones and realize the ancient power that she has hidden in her- the Dragon Flame. By growing her wings, Bloom showcases her power and unleashes a fearsome display of fire magic, her aim here is to save the school. Rosalind teams up with Beatrix, Riven, and Dane and now all seems like recruited to her cause and now it’s time for Bloom to reconcile with Headmistress Farrah Dowling.
It gives a feeling that a temporary peace has come back to the fantasy land of Alfea as the Burned Ones are now defeated and Rosalind has vanished, so Bloom goes to the Earth with her friends as she wants to inform her parents about her powers. Rosalind returns in her absence, prophecies of terrible events that are yet to come, murders Dowling very brutally, and with the help of Stella’s mother, Queen Luna, assume control of the school. Due to the attempted murder of Sky’s father Andreas, who comes as secretly alive, having apparently raised Beatrix in hiding, Silva is arrested. The Winx comes back to Alfea to realize the major power changes for what is going to come.
What’s the real meaning of the ending here?
The first season has set up the potential for an extended run, there is a lot for the viewers to know. The potential allusions to Darkar and invocation of the Dragon Flame are exciting references to the original Winx Club cartoon, and it feels like there are some more potential threats that are waiting to come. The concrete establishment of the Winx Club itself is the key ending of season one. The core five Fairies have grown into a tight-knit group after knowing each other and all the drama in season one. The foundation has strong potential if Fate: The Winx Saga season 1 has surely been an ending with suspense.
Will there be a season 2?
The first season of Fate: The Winx Saga has been full of drama, twists, and suspense, and there is a lot to know.
The YA series has inspired the Nickelodeon Winx Club animated show from the noughties, it has showcased a great helping of ancient magic, teen drama, and there are some things that literally go bump in the night.
This has been a great success delighted the cast and crew.
This is crazy to see people responding really well to something that has left many questions. This has been a nerve-racking thing before it came out and once it has come out, and this is the kind of response you get, it feels really great, said star Abigail Cowan.
Seasons 2, the production is underway and this might come with a beloved character from the original cartoon series and it will be her debut in live-action.
Some fans were truly upset over the decision not to feature Latina fairy Flora during the first batch of episodes, with her cousin Terra (Eliot Salt) and this might seem like taking her place at Alfea College.
However, the writers are rectifying that in their sophomore season, adding Paulina Chávez (The Expanding Universe of Ashley Garcia) to the main cast in the role of Flora, a fairy of nature.
This show may not make its return in time for its premiere anniversary. In general, post-production for a series may take around 6 to 8 months, season 2 is worth waiting.
