Alfea will be resuming its supernatural duties for Fate: The Winx Saga season 2 as we follow the coming-of-age journey of six fairies attending Alfea, a magical boarding school in the Otherworld. The fairy friends must learn how to use and control their magical abilities while navigating love, rivalries and the monsters that are out to destroy them.

Fate: The Winx Saga is a live-action reimagining of the Italian cartoon series Winx Club by Iginio Straffi and season 2 will see the powerful fairies stories continue to evolve, with new cast members (and a new fairy!) joining the seven-episode series.

What is the plot of Fate: The Winx Saga season 2?

The official synopsis of season 2 reads: "School’s back in session under the militant authority of Alfea’s former Headmistress Rosalind. With the Burned Ones gone, Dowling 'disappeared' and Silva imprisoned for treason, the Alfea of last year has grown up with new magic, new romances and new faces. 

"But when fairies start to go missing in the night, Bloom and her Suitemates discover a dangerous threat lurking in the shadows. One they'll have to stop before it wreaks havoc on the entire Otherworld."

Is there a trailer?

A trailer has finally dropped for the highly-anticipated second season where there are new monstrous creatures wreaking havoc in Alfea, as well as more powerful magic coming from the fairies...

There is also an exciting first look at new fairy Flora. In the clip, Terra is initially scared when she hears some suspicious sounds in the woods, but she's soon delighted to discover that it's her cousin Flora.
