Today’s “Thursday Your Say” is about the future of Winx Club. Nick and Rainbow are already working on season six, and the second movie, Magical Adventure, will finally premiere in America this year.
What happens next? Can Winx Club make it to season seven and a third movie?
Winx‘s viewer ratings in America have been low. And, as we talked about in another “Thursday Your Say,” the time slot isn’t the only thing to blame. If things don’t improve, the show could be cancelled. And since Nick has a higher stake in it than 4Kids did — Viacom owns 30 percent of Rainbow — the consequences could be worse if they jumped ship.
But Winx is still popular worldwide — so popular that there are stage shows, ice shows, concerts, boutiques, theme park rides, dance competitions, and more. Rainbow’s webpage says the show’s “continuously broadcast in over 130 countries with top ratings.”
Plus, we’re nearing its 10th anniversary. It may be old by cartoon standards, but If it’s lasted this long, who’s to say it can’t keep going?
YOUR SAY: Do you think Winx Club can last beyond season six? What needs to be done to make that happen?
