Netflix and Rainbow Studios Announce Spin-off of "Winx Club" as a New Original TV Series for Kids

All New Episodes of Magical Adventures Coming to Netflix Around the World in Spring 2016

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Sept. 25, 2014 -- Netflix, Inc. (Nasdaq: NFLX) and Rainbow Studios today announced an expansion to the popular Winx Club franchise with a spin-off series, Winx Club WOW: World of Winx, that will be exclusively available in all Netflix territories including France and Germany. The first of the two all-new seasons will be available by early 2016 with the second following in the autumn. In partnership with this leading European animation studio, Winx Club WOW is the latest addition to the Netflix original kids programming slate.

In Winx Club WOW, the girls embark on an undercover journey all around the world looking for talented kids in art, sports, music and science. These kids have their own kind of magic, and the Winx Club fairies are enchanted by them though it doesn't take long before trouble sets in, and a new and dangerous mystery for Bloom and the others to solve. Winx Club fans will delight in the new approach to story lines that will be more serialized and designed specifically for the on-demand viewing of Netflix members. The two seasons of thirteen 22-minute episodes are packed full of Winx Club's famous mixture of friendship, magic and adventure.

"We are very happy to be building a solid and wide collaboration with Netflix, so extending it to include new and original content is fantastic news," says Mr. Iginio Straffi, President and CEO of Rainbow Group. "Netflix is an innovative and exciting presence in the field of content distribution and our production teams are busy putting together what will be a brand new and truly magical experience for Winx Club fans across the globe."
