Thanks go out to Toonbarn reader Jackie, who gave us the tip-off that the spin-off Winx Club WOW: World of Winx has just been released on Netflix. The spin-off was originally given the vague “Fall 2016” release date on the streaming service, but the exact date is no longer important as the show can now be watched to your heart’s content. There are plans to release two seasons’ worth of episodes, with each one consisting of 13 x 22 minute episodes specifically formatted for VOD viewing.
While the target audience is still the same, fans of Rainbow’s extremely popular Winx franchise is in for a surprise as World of Winx will take the property into an entirely new direction: the Winx will go undercover in order to find kids with a gift for the arts, sports, music, and science but they will be hindered by a “dangerours mystery.”
The show also takes on a completely different artistic look, no doubt a result of the change in setting: the show will take place mostly on Earth as opposed to the Magic Dimension, leading to scenes that are more urban and metropolitan than fantastical.
But enough talk, if you’re Netflix subscriber and you want more Winx in your life, you can head on over to the official Netflix page for World of Winx.
