Back in early 2018 we announced that Netflix were creating a live-action version of “Winx Club” aimed at young adults – well, now that time is almost upon us! “Fate: The Winx Saga” will arrive globally on Netflix on January 22nd and will follow the coming-of-age journey of five fairies attending Alfea, a magical boarding school in the Otherworld where they must learn to master their magical powers while navigating love, rivalries, and the monsters that threaten their very existence.
“Winx Club” began life as an animated series from Italy back in 2004 and then in 2016 Netflix released 2 seasons of “World of Winx” – a spinoff based on the original series. The six fairies will turn into real teenagers while they try to hone their powers at boarding school.
The new series is created by The Vampire Diaries’ creator Brian Young.
