Fate: The Winx Saga isn’t just a popular fantasy show, but also hits the perfect nostalgic spot, especially for the 90s kids. Originally, the Italian-American cartoon, Winx Club was adapted to a live-action teen drama by Netflix called Fate: The Winx Saga, and it took everyone by storm. The series had audiences from all age groups, everyone wanted to know more about these young women who were on the precipice of uncovering something ground-breaking. Most recently, much to everyone’s excitement, the second season of Fate: The Winx Saga was released, and it ended with a cliffhanger. Fans assumed that given the success of the series and the cliffhanger, there would be a third season, but things aren’t looking so great anymore.
If there is one thing viewers are passionate about is the renewal of their favorite series, and they take it very seriously. Over the last decade, Netflix has canceled some very incredible shows despite the potential only because of viewership and ratings. Netflix rarely changes their minds about things like these. For example, when the show Manifest was canceled, Netflix saved it. But when Netflix cancels something, there is very little room for saving. So, what is the fate of Fate: The Winx Saga and why has it been trending these last few days?

Is Fate: The Winx Saga Season 3 Being Canceled?
These last few days, fans have taken over the internet, raging against the possibility of their favorite show being canceled. Netflix recently announced that Fate: The Winx Saga Season 3 will not be returning for a third season, hence the uproar among fans. This news was confirmed by Brian Young, the showrunner, who took to Instagram with a tearful goodbye to his fans and acknowledged the fact that this was tough for the fans, especially after two incredible seasons. Fate: The Winx Saga had a rocky first season, they were accused of a lack of representation and the absence of some important characters from the animated series. However, the second season was proof that the creators listened to their fans and considered their criticism, and made the changes that were needed.
Fate: The Winx Saga Season 2 ended on an incredibly emotional note and a cliffhanger that needed to be addressed in the coming seasons. Although a season 3 was never confirmed, fans had assumed that it would be inevitable, but alas, that wasn’t the case. Netflix has given no official reason so far as to why Fate: The Winx Saga is being canceled, leaving fans demanding closure of some sort.
The Aftermath of Fate: The Winx Saga Being Canceled?
Some of the cast members took to Instagram to say their goodbyes while fans were still reeling from the cancelation of the beloved show. While some fans expressed their sadness and anger on social media platforms like Instagram and Twitter, others decided to be a little more productive with their time and internet connection. In the last few days, several petitions have been created on websites like change.org to get fans from all across the world to sign, hoping that it will make a difference. Here is one of the petitions, if you believe that signatures can save Fate: The Winx Saga, then you must go ahead and sign these petitions.
However, we have seen this pattern far too often. Fans of several shows have rallied for the renewal of their favorite shows, for example, when the show One Day at a Time was canceled, it upset people all over the world, especially because this show covered a lot of important topics that affected all generations. Again, petitions were signed, and tweets were tweeted, but Netflix did not budge. The Fate fandom will not rest until Netflix makes a statement itself, and who knows, they might just change their mind about this decision.
Will There Be Other Shows Like Fate: The Winx Saga?
Every cloud has a silver lining and when one door closes, several others open. Something along these lines is the fate of this franchise. Iginio Straffi, the creator of the show has confirmed that although Fate: The Winx Saga might have ended before its time, two major Winx projects are currently under development. The original Winx Club is getting a CG-animated reboot and promises to sweep the fans back into the original Winx world, making everyone very nostalgic.
This isn’t where it ends as there is more in store which includes a high-budget Winx movie, which is currently in the works. Although there is very little information about both these projects, at least fans have that sliver of hope that they will get to see their favorite characters again, even if the cast doesn’t stay the same.
Fate: The Winx Saga will be trending for a while now, and fans will have to learn to make their peace with the ending of season 2. While we don’t want to get your hopes high, don’t be completely disheartened. It is completely possible that Netflix will pick up on the momentum that has taken place and might even consider renewing the show. If they do, we’ll make sure we update you!
