Fate: The Winx Saga is a live-action adaptation of the original Winx Club animation series. The Netflix hit spent some time at the top of the streaming platform’s top 10 most-watched series. Fans are keen to know where the fantasy series is filmed and Express.co.uk has all you need to know.
Where is Fate The Winx Saga filmed?
Fate: The Winx Saga was inspired by the original fairies of the Winx Club, from the mid-2000s.
The series follows fairies and other protagonists known as The Specialists who are in training to protect their school against evil.
The Netflix show is much darker than the original, as the fairies face the evil Burned Ones.
Bloom (played by Abigail Cowen) is a Fire Fairy from America who moves to the magical college in the Otherworld.
Fans are keen to know the filming location for the mystic parallel universe.
Most of the filming took place in Ireland, starting in County Wicklow in September 2019.
Filming lasted for three months and other locations included Killruddery House and Ardmore Studios in Bray.
The huge mansion acted as the college in the series and it dates back to the 17th century.
Some indoor scenes were also shot at Ashford Studios, which is also the location for the historical drama series Vikings.
Fans fell in love with the stunning scenery shown in the series as the fairies must protect a border lined with lush trees.
The Belfast Telegraph reported the filming and a local councillor was pleased to hear the news.
They said on Twitter: “I really enjoyed watching Fate: The Winx Saga on Netflix at the weekend and was pleasantly surprised to find out that it was all filmed in Wicklow.
“Great to see Netflix recognise the potential in working in locations such as Belfast.”
Many fans have compared the Netflix series to the animated original, but showrunner Brian Young said it should be treated as a separate entity.
Speaking to Netflix, he said: “We wanted to play within the Winx world but we also wanted to introduce new storylines and characters.

“Like Winx member Terra (Eliot Salt) and her brother Sam (Jacob Dudman), cousins of Flora who was in the original cartoon.
“We have also got troublemaker Beatrix (Sadie Soverall) who might remind fans of one of the Trix sisters.”
Many of the relationships that unfold in the Netflix series are different from those in the original.
The Fate fairies have their own identity as they dress as regular college students, unlike the original fairies with their glitzy outfits and sparkling wings.
There had been some backlash in response to the new show’s dark themes, but on the whole, it was enjoyed by fans.
There are plenty of questions left to be answered in a potential second season as Bloom discovers more about her past.
She found out she had been rescued from the village of Aster Dell as a baby before it was destroyed.
Viewers are also waiting to find out the ultimate fate of Alfea headteacher Farah Dowling (Eve Best).
She had seemingly been killed by the villainous Rosalind (Lesley Sharp), but some fans are convinced she will return.
