Italian animation is known for its exciting adventurous cartoon named “Winx Club”. It is already a long-running project with seven full seasons on its board. But so far there has been no word from the creative team concerning the eighth chapter. So we keep our eyes open in case of any changes.
Fantastical adventure by Italian production
Making for the animated project, Winx Club is a pure and simple blend of various genres including action, adventure, comedy, and fantasy. This story is, by the way, created thanks to the developers from Italy, the home country for the cartoon.
The series airing is held on two channels: in Italy on Rai 2 and in the USA on the Nick Jr. channel. In North America, the airing was set originally on Nickelodeon and since the sixth chapter the series moved to Nick Jr due to the producers of the first channel refraining from the following release. So the series can be proud of not only its local but also international broadcast.
The series creative team includes Iginio Straffi, a director and a writer, as well as such executives as Joanne Lee, Alfred R. Kahn, Norman J. Grossfield and Tom Kenny. The company for production is Rainbow S.r.l.
The first episodes appeared in 2011. So we have enjoyed the cartoon for already five years. The current number of seasons constitutes seven.
The latest season emerged in the previous August. So now we can supposedly expect the appearance of the eighth one.
The series with its Italian voicing can’t be understood by the English-speaking residents of the USA. So the animated show should be provided with English voices. This task was entrusted particularly to Keke Palmer, Alejandra Reynoso, Morgan Decker, Molly Quinn, Amy Gross, Romi Dames, and Liliana Mumy.
The main personages there are fairies of a special college specialized in magic powers called Alfea. Bloom, Stella, and Flora and also the roommates Tecna and Musa are creating the Winx Club. They meet also charming boys there at that school for fairies.
The latest season delivers a poignant idea of the necessity to protect our environments when depicting the Fairy Animals, the magical beings endowed with certain talents without whom the balance of the Magical Universe is impossible to maintain. The difficulty is that they are the target for villains named Kalshara and his brother Brafilius and consequently are put into jeopardy of being killed.
Current status of affairs with the cartoon
The series target audience is not so wide (consisting mainly of small girls as boys are not so much interested in this theme) that leads to a considerably average rating constituting on IMDb for example only 4.4 points out of the whole 10.
Such a low rating can be the reason for cancellation. But we should not so far to hang down our heads as there is still a chance of possible renewal for the eighth pack of episodes. Let’s keep our fingers crossed in favor of the near appearance of info including the Winx Club season 8 release date.
