No Season 3 for the fantasy drama.
November 1, 2022
Word is out that Netflix has cancelled Fate: The Winx Saga after two seasons. The news comes less than two months after the fantasy drama released its 7-episode sophomore run, which again garnered mixed reviews from critics.
"So this is not fun news to share, but Netflix have decided not to move forward with Season Three of Fate: The Winx Saga," wrote creator Brian Young in an Instagram message to fans. "This is especially tough because I know how many of you loved this season. It's a heartbreaking silver lining, but a silver lining all the same. I'm so proud of everyone who worked on the show, and so happy we got to tell the stories we did. Our cast and crew put in a ton of hard work creating this world and these characters. I'm grateful for each and every one of them, and for all of you for watching."
Based on the 'Winx Club' animated series, the live-action show follows five fairy teenagers attending Alfea College, a magical boarding school in the Otherworld. There, they must learn to master their enchanting powers while navigating love, rivalries, and the monsters that threaten their existence.

So, it was way too woke for me, but it still had a lot of great themes in it and ideas. Despite a number of cringy bits I had to FF through, I generally like the characters and plot twists and the whole concepts of fairy magic they brought through.
I think part of the problem was the acting - some of it was alright, some of it was very cringy and it see-sawed back and forth. It might have had something to do with the writing, they kind of painted themselves into a bit of a corner.
But, it's too bad we really won't get to see it wrapped up properly. I hate it when they end shows without a proper ending, even if it is just a wrap-up movie.

It was boring and clichéd. Nothing more.

Literally the first time hearing about this series....my God is Netflix bad with promotions.

The fact that netflix won't promote any of the smaller (outside of stranger things, or any of huge thing) show is CRAZY. Half the time you don't even know things came back or premiered bc the lack of promotion but they wanna say people not watching?? like yeah what you expect when you don't promote your shows? Literally fans have to promote things atp. I swear this is like the 7th show that done got canned that I watched.. it's crazy.. atp I'm bout to stop watching tv altogether. Anyways I kinda like S2 better than 1 bc we got to know them a bit better. sad to see it go bc s3 would've probably been better. oh well. f%ck netflix

So they cancel their highest rated show.

@Bill. It's a kind of silly question. All shows end on cliffhanger today ;-)
But to answer your question. Yes, it did end on a cliffhanger.
Which is the reason I'm starting to avoid US shows or just watch limited shows.
I never understood the reason with cliffhanger. If the show is good, the viewers will keep watching the show even though there is no cliffhanger. Cliffhangers is so annoying because most often the show will be cancelled before it conclude...

It's what this show deserved. Netflix screwed it up from the get-go. Did nothing right. Even the costumes were crap. I hope this will be a lesson to them. When you adapt a show, adapt that show. Don't just take character names and then make something else completely different. Nobody wanted that moody ass, unfashionable, boring ass, straight out the CW ass Winx Club. Nobody. It's okay for a show to be colorful. It's okay for a show to be fun, fashionable, and girly and still full of magic, science fiction, and action. Stupid Netflix.

I knew it wasn't going to get past season 2. They fucked it up too much straight out the gate. Even if they did try to course correct in season 2, it was too late by then.

@Bill - it leaves it on a very big cliffhanger unfortunately. Sad to see this one go.
