Fate: The Winx Saga is based on the animated series Winx Club on Nickelodeon, following a student named Bloom (Abigail Cowen) who discovers she has special powers in the first season which leads her to enroll in a school for magic in the Otherworld called Alfea. Throughout the two seasons, Bloom forms close friendships with her suitemates and a romance with her classmate named Sky (Danny Griffin).
