10 Movies And Shows To Watch If You Like Fate: The Winx Saga – Screen Rant

Fans of Fate: The Winx Saga would be wise to seek out these other series and movies for more magical times.
As far as Netflix goes, the streaming service arguably rose to fame following the success of several of its original shows. These include Stranger Things, 13 Reasons Why, Orange is the New Black, and The Crown. Since then, the company has continuously provided new streaming content that everyone can enjoy episode after episode.

This year, Netflix introduced us to Fate: The Winx Saga, a series which centers on teen attending a boarding school for fairies. And as we await word on a possible second season for the show, we thought we’d also go over other similar shows and movies to watch.
This 2005 movie is based on a popular tv series. This time, Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman takes on the iconic role of Isabel Bigelow/Samantha which Elizabeth Montgomery had portrayed throughout eight seasons. Meanwhile, her love interest, Jack Wyatt/Darrin, is portrayed by comedian Will Ferrell. Meanwhile, Shirley MacLaine plays Iris Smythson/Endora, who had been Samantha’s mother in the tv show. Despite some of the movie’s plot differences from the series, Bewitched can still be amusing to watch. Interestingly, Kidman’s costumes in the film are also comparable to Montgomery’s most iconic outfits as Samantha.
The Good Witch is a Hallmark show that started out as a series of movies, which readily showed off Cassie Nightingale’s (Catherine Bell) magical abilities. The series essentially follows Cassie’s life following the death of her husband, Jake Russell. On the show, Cassie and her now-grown-up daughter Grace (Bailee Madison) attract the attention of new neighbors – Dr. Sam Radford (James Denton) and his son, Nick (Rhys Matthew Bond) – who move in right next to the Grey House. Needless to say, Dr. Radford and Cassie eventually fall for each other become Middleton’s newest ‘it’ couple.
It has been over two decades since Practical Magic was released in 1998. Since then, the movie’s two lead stars, Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman have become among Hollywood’s biggest stars. In fact, both women have gone on to win Oscars and they’ve also been keen to pursue television and film projects onscreen and from behind the scenes.

In the movie, Kidman and Bullock star as witch sisters who are dealing with a curse that may stop them from ever finding true love. Practical Magic may not have gotten rave reviews from critics, but the movie achieved some following, nonetheless.
In this Netflix series, a university student named Jack Morton joins a secret society and discovers magic and monsters in the process. Granted, the show is a little darker than Fate: The Winx Saga. Nonetheless, it deals with similar themes and of course, witchcraft. Unfortunately, Netflix had decided to cancel the series after two seasons. According to the show’s creator, Dennis Heaton, things could have taken a darker turn had The Order been renewed. He tweeted, “Jack was totally going to raise Alyssa from the dead, but she was going to come back wrong. Like, Pet Sematary wrong.”
Percy Jackson may be a demigod instead of a witch, but he certainly went through a similar phase in life as Bloom when she started attending Alfea. As you may recall, Percy wasn’t aware of his abilities (or true identity) when he started attending Camp Half-Blood. He had to train and he had to learn how to master them just like our favorite Winx Saga fairy. After releasing two films, it seemed that Fox had forgotten all about its Percy Jackson franchise. Fortunately, news has emerged regarding plans for the franchise’s revival on Disney+.
The Magicians is a Syfy fantasy show that revolves around a group of students that get recruited into mysterious Brakebills University where they make the frightening discovery that magic is real. Based on a series of novels of the same name by Lev Grossman, the series starts just as a young teen named Quentin Coldwater arrives at the school which regularly train magicians. And just like Bloom, Quentin also quickly makes some new friends, and together, they discover the most amazing (and dangerous) things in the magic world.
The Fantastic Beasts are essentially a prequel to the highly successful Harry Potter movies, although its first two films were only released in recent years and its third isn’t due to be released until 2022, according to recent reports. These movies delve further into the world that Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling had magnificently created.

However, it is set around 65 years prior to the events of Harry Potter and the central character is a creature-loving wizard named Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). In the franchise’s second film, fans would also come across a younger version of Professor Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law).
This CW drama is the latest spinoff of popular teen dramas The Vampire Diaries and The Originals. This time around, we discover other young Mystic Falls residents who also possess supernatural abilities. These include Klaus Mikaelson’s (Joseph Morgan) daughter, Hope (Danielle Rose Russell), and Alaric Saltzman’s (Matthew Davis) twin daughters, Josie (Kaylee Bryant) and Lizzie (Jenny Boyd). And as fans of the whole Vampire Diaries universe may expect, these girls had been attending The Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted. The show had recently premiered its third season.
Perhaps, it’s no surprise that the Harry Potter films would be on this list. After all, Fate: The Winx Saga did make a reference to Harry Potter early on in the series. For anyone who hasn’t watched these movies yet, there are eight of them, starting with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, which sees Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) begin his time at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry shortly after discovering that he is a wizard. Soon enough, the movie also introduces the audience to Harry’s friends for life, Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson).
CW made the decision to revive the Charmed universe in 2018 with a completely new cast that included Melonie Diaz, Sarah Jeffery, and Madeleine Mantock. Just like the older show (which featured Holly Marie Combs, Alyssa Milano, Rose McGowan, and Shannen Doherty), these women also play three sisters who only discover that they are witches upon their mother’s death. Back in 2020, CW announced that this rebooted show has been renewed for a third season. However, the show’s return was delayed due to the pandemic. Fortunately for fans, the show’s season three finally premiered in January.
