Fate: The Winx Saga returned to Netflix in September 2022, but does it pave the way for a third season, and if so, will we see it? Sadly, we’ve heard that Fate: The Winx Saga season 3 will not be returning, since the programme has been officially cancelled, according to its showrunner. Here’s what we know about the cancellation. Brian Young’s project, which premieres in January 2021, is a live-action adaptation of the Nickelodeon animated series Winx Club. The sitcom was quickly renewed, and season 2 received a somewhat larger season order, with 8 episodes instead of 6 in season 1. (only 7 released, however).
How popular is Fate: The Winx Saga on Netflix?
We can observe how well the show is doing so far using Netflix’s top 10 hourly data. Weeks 2 to 3 may have been a major factor in the title’s cancellation based on the five weeks of data we have for it before it dropped out of the top 10. The 57% decrease in watch time between weeks 2 and 3 is what we are examining. As we’ve previously mentioned, a reduction of over 50% is certainly indicative of a significant decline in new starters and, maybe more crucially, completions. Between September 11 and October 16, 2022, 160,980,000 million hours of the second season were viewed internationally.
One encouraging sign for the show is that after the release of season 2, the viewership for the first season of Fate: The Winx Saga increased, indicating that new fans were beginning to watch (or rewatch) the show for the first time. With 29.82M hours, the first season was among the top 10 on Netflix between September 18 and October 2. The programme had a lower beginning than the majority of Netflix shows that were renewed, including Virgin River, Never Have I Ever, Sex Education, You, and Cobra Kai, according to our top 10 report for week one and the CVE statistic.
Has Season 3 of Fate: The Winx Saga been renewed by Netflix?
On November 1, 2022, a decision regarding the series was made public and stated that a third season of the Netflix series would not be forthcoming. In a sincere message of gratitude to the audience, Brian Young announced the cancellation of the show on Instagram, writing:
Until then, the plan, according to showrunner Brian Young, is to keep the programme going. The showrunner wrote in a post, “It’s out! I’m so proud of everybody who works on @fatenetflix. It was made possible by SO MANY individuals working SO HARD for SO LONG! I’m in awe of our actors, crew, and collaborators at Netflix and Rainbow. We still intend to accomplish a lot more, by the way! This planet is enormous! Six episodes is insufficient! We hope that everyone will watch so that we can.
Through Netflix’s own marketing, the show did receive a fair amount of attention. The series was extensively covered by Netflix Tudum, featured numerous teasers, and even served as one of the main attractions during Netflix’s Geeked Week celebration earlier this year.
