Sept. 17 (UPI) -- Netflix has found its lead for the new series Fate: The Winx Club Saga.

"#TVD alum Brian Young will showrun the YA-series set at a magical boarding school where five friends try to navigate their powers, romance, and deadly monsters," Netflix tweeted.
Cowen celebrated her casting in an Instagram post Tuesday.
"So excited to finally share this news. Pinching myself. I am quivering. Definitely quivering. So pumped to bring Bloom to life. Here we go," she wrote.
Deadline reported Fate: The Winx Saga will tell the coming-of-age story of Bloom (Cowen) and her friends. The series will consist of six episodes and has started principal photography in Ireland.
