Zap2It and LocateTV are reporting “The Magic Totem” (6X18) will air Wednesday, Sep. 9 on Nick Jr. at a new time: 6 p.m. EST. The next episode, “Queen for a Day” (6X19), will air Friday, Sep. 11, also at 6 p.m. EST. Both episodes previously premiered on Nick.com.
According to Nick & More, the next two episodes — “Stella’s Big Party” (6X20) and “A Monster Crush” (6X21) — will air on Tuesday, Sep. 15 and Thursday Sep. 17. This will be the official U.S. premiere of “A Monster Crush,” which was never shown online or on TV.
No word yet if the new time slot and the move to Tuesdays and Thursdays are permanent.
Winx Club‘s finally returning to U.S. television, but not where we expected it!
Yesterday, lots of fans noticed Winx was on Nick Jr.’s schedule for this weekend, but naturally, knowing Nick, we were…doubtful. Well, doubt no more! Rainbow confirmed it through the official Winx Club website!
Write these dates down, Winx fans!
- Sunday, July 26 from 7-9 a.m.: Episodes 1-4
- Sunday, Aug. 2 from 7-9 a.m.: Episode 5-8
- Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 7 p.m., starting Aug. 3: The post simply says “new episodes.” Does it mean the final six episodes of the series?
This is good but surprising news! Is Winx Club moving to Nick Jr. permanently? If so, how do you feel about that?
UPDATE: NickALive just reported on this, and they brought up something I hadn’t thought of. Every episode of season six from “Shrine of the Green Dragon” (6X09) onward aired online only, so technically they’re new to TV. Maybe that’s what Rainbow’s post meant by “new episodes.”
Lots of fans spotted this first, so credit goes to them! Special thanks to Dane A., Marcus M., Michael’s Winx Club, and World-of-Winx-Club (Tumblr)!
