The story of the Fate: The Winx Saga revolves around the fairies, and specialists of the Alfea College. Basically, this live-action reboot is a darker version of the animated winx club series. Its main characters include a group of teenage fairies one of which is the center of focus, and attention in the entire series. Bloom, a fire fairy is the center of attention in this series because a powerful magic runs inside her. About the powerful magic, it is the dragon flame, an ancient magic curse of which turned a bunch of war soldiers into burned ones. Whereas the burned ones are known to be evil entities which threaten the lives of all the magical, and non-magical beings.
So, about the story of Fate: The Winx Saga, it started with Bloom arriving at Alfea as a first-year student. She eventually becomes friends with her suitemates Stella, Musa, Aisha, and Terra. All of them seems to be entangled in their own problems yet they finds a way to help each other out.
Along with these fairies, we have another teenage fairy in the story: Beatrix’s known to be working for Rosalind, an evil fairy. She disguises herself as a first year student to enter into Alfea only to find a way to free Rosalind.
Beatrix manipulates Bloom, and tries to turn her against Farah Dowling. She feeds her with lies that Dowling, Silva, and Ben killed her parents along with a hundred of innocent people.
The confused Bloom ends up falling in the trap set up by Rosalind, and frees her from the 16-year imprisonment.
Meanwhile, the burned ones attacks the school as Rosalind lures them by breaking the barrier. Bloom realizes that the burned ones are after her so she lures them away from the school. By following what the Rosalind told her, she ends up removing the curse of the burned ones. They turns out to be normal yet dead human beings. In the process of removing the curse, Bloom transforms herself to a full fairy (a fairy with fire wings).
By the end of the season 1, we witnessed that Rosalind takes over the Alfea after killing Dowling. The queen of Solaria aids, and abet her in taking over the control. Moreover, Andreas, the father of Sky turns out to be alive. Rosalind, Queen, and Andreas have Silva arrested for attempting murder of Andreas because he would never let them take over.
It all happens when Bloom along with her friends went to visit her human parents. She tells them her truth, and they accepts her anyways.
Fate: The Winx Saga Season 1 ended with Bloom, Terra, Stella, Musa, and Aisha arriving at Alfea back from the First World only to find Rosalind, Queen, and Andreas waiting for them at the gate of the Alfea.
