Fans gutted after Netflix cancels yet another popular series

Fans of Fate: The Winx Saga are gutted after showrunner Brian Young confirmed Netflix has cancelled the series after just two seasons

Fans are gutted after Netflix cancelled yet another of its popular series, saying they feel frustrated that they’ll never know how the story ends.

It’s always a shame when your favourite show gets cancelled, especially if you don’t agree with the tough decision from the powers that be.

And, of course, when something gets called off before cast and crew have been able to wrap things up, it can be particularly frustrating not knowing how the narrative ends.

Fans of Fate: The Winx Saga have found themselves in that boat after showrunner Brian Young confirmed Netflix has cancelled the fantastical coming-of-age drama after just two seasons.

Sharing a statement on Instagram, Young paid tribute to the ‘hard work’ of those behind the show, saying he felt proud of what they achieved.

He wrote: “So this not fun news to share, but Netflix have decided not to move forward with Season Three of Fate: The Winx Saga.

The show has come to an end after just two series.

“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.

“It’s been an amazing four years. Hopefully we’ll see each other again in the future.”

The programme tells the story of six fairies at Alfea, a magical boarding school in the Otherworld, as they learn to master their powers while navigating ‘love, rivalries, and the monsters that threaten their very existence’.

The second season wrapped last month with an hour-long series finale – an episode that fans didn’t know would be the last.

Naturally, many people are upset by the news, with one commenting on Young’s post: “Are you kidding me? Please say your kidding and this is just some joke.”

Someone else said: “Can’t believe in this. Season 2 was so great and make me wonder how the show would follow in the next seasons… and the trix…. I’m so sad.”

A third wrote: “Haaaate it when Netflix does this. If you had known before S2, things could have been explained and wrapped up nicely in the end. Writing a show not knowing whether or not you'll have another season must be so frustrating.”

Another added: “Netflix cancelling all the good shows especially the ones who are doing soooo well in sickening.”

UNILAD has reached out to Netflix for comment.

The popular streamer also recently cancelled First Kill, which focused on a young vampire Juliette (Sarah Catherine Hook), less than two months after the first series dropped.

The news was met with widespread disappointment as, during First Kill’s short run the series reached a global viewership of 30.34 million hours.
