If you haven’t watched Fate: The Winx Saga I highly recommend that you do. The show is filled with your everyday teen drama.  

Brian Young who produced Fate” The Winx Saga also produced The Vampire Diaries.

The show has two seasons that are very enjoyable, but sadly the show has been canceled but it’s still worth watching.

Fate: The Winx Saga is about fairies that attend a magical boarding school and the Specialists are mainly found on the field training in the Otherworld, where they must learn to master their magical powers or increase their strength while navigating love, rivalries, and the monsters that threaten their very existence.

This show is based on the Nickelodeon cartoon The Winx Club. Instead of a magical realm like in the cartoon, The storyline takes place in a school named Alfea located in Solaria, filled with kids that are either fairies or very strong warriors called Specialists. 

In the first episode, the main characters are introduced, the girl’s name is Bloom (Abigail Cowen),  a fire fairy. We also meet Sky (Danny Griffin), the other main character, who is a Specialist.

The other characters that are introduced are Bloom’s roommates; Terra (Eliot Salt) who’s a very upbeat earth fairy that is positive, and Musa (Elisha Applebaum) who’s a mind fairy that prefers to be alone. Then there’s Stella (Hannah van der Westhuysen) who’s a very popular light fairy that is very self-centered, and Aisha (Precious Mustapha) who’s a polite and smart water fairy that likes to help anyone with anything.

We also meet Sky’s roommate; Riven (Freddie Thorp), who is a Specialist. Riven is a druggie who can’t accept that Sky is better than him.

The other characters that are introduced are the headmistress Dowling (Eve Best), Saul Silva (Rob James-Collier) who is the headmaster of the Specialists, and Professor Ben Harvey (Alex Macqueen).

During the first season of Fate, Bloom is sent to the boarding school after an accident with her magic in her own home. 

During her time at the school, she finds out that many things that she and her family knew were all lies.

There are many villains throughout seasons one and two.

The villains from season one are Beatrix (Sadie Soverall), Rosalind (Lesley Sharp), and the Burned ones.

Beatrix is an air fairy whose only goal is to free Rosalind and will hurt anyone that gets in her way.

Rosalind wants to take the school from headmistress Dowling. She also wants to have Bloom reach her full potential so that Bloom can free her from Stasis.

Stasis is where someone is put in a chamber where they are frozen in time.

The Burned Ones are monstrous creatures that were created a thousand years ago from the Dragon Flame.

The Dragon Flame is an ancient magical power in the Otherworld capable of great destruction. Currently, Bloom holds the Dragon Flame within her.

The villains from season two and Sebastian (Eanna Hardwicke), the Scrapers, and the Blood Witches. 

In season two Sebastian is revealed to be a calculated psychopath who gains the trust of Bloom, just for Bloom to find out that he is a blood witch and that he wants to kill all of the Fairies. 

Blood Witches have magic similar to fairies but they use blood to carry out their magical desires.

Throughout season two the Blood Witches use Scrapers to take the powers from the fairies, just to give Sebastian the powers so he can become stronger. 

Scrapers are magical creatures that originate from the Realm of Darkness. They feed on magic and were summoned by the Blood Witch Sebastian to steal the magic of fairies from Alfea College.

The Realm of Darkness is a magical world that is home to beings such as Shadow and the Scrapers.

To find out all the things that happen I suggest you go and watch Fate: The Winx Saga.
