Fate: The Winx Saga is a live-action remake of Iginio Straffi's Italian animation Winx Club. The show follows the coming-of-age journey of five unlikely friends as they attend Alfea, a magical boarding school in the Otherworld in which they must learn to harness their magical skills while navigating love, rivalry, and the creatures who threaten their very existence.
Iginio Straffi, the creator and CEO of Rainbow Group, created and produced Winx Club in Italy in 2004. It has since become one of the most successful animated series in the world, as well as one of the first Italian shows to be sold in the United States.
The first season cast includes Abigail Cowen, Danny Griffin, Elisha Applebaum, Freddie Thorp, Precious Mustapha, Hannah van der Westhuysen, Eliot Salt, Sadie Soverall, and Eve Best.
