4Kids Will End Winx With Season 3

During the broadcast of Saturday's episode, the CW4Kids ran a commercial counting down the final nine episodes of Winx Club. Obviously, this means they will be ending the series at the third season and the fourth season will not premiere on American soil in July, August, September, or any other false release date.

The full text of the commercial:

Announcer: The CW4Kids is counting down the final episodes of the Winx Club!
(Preview for the next episode, "Day at the Museum")
Announcer: Only nine episodes left 'til the Winx Club series finale!
Bloom: Oh no, we're running out of time!
Have a great summer, for anyone who's out of school by now.

    For the record, they always say that when they end a season. I've heard it before and I think they will show season 4, but they'll show it later than expected. We're just gonna have to wait and see.

  4. Stupid 4kids. First they mess shows up, then they don't air the rest. I'm not just referring to Winx Club, either.

  9. I'm very disappointed, not because I wanted to watch the new seaons and movies om their version but because Ignio and Rainbow may never show Winx Club here or show new eps therefore the show won't continue being a huge hit and it will end pitifully :/. They be just going on hiatus tho until they show season 4, you never know :), but in the upcoming chance they won't we should start a petition saying to Ignio,Rainbow and 4Kids that we want our fav show in our country! WHOS WITH ME????

  10. I must agree with everyone here, but I refuse to give up hope that we will get Season 4 and the movies. It could just be they didn't edit the video from when it first aired. We may get it, hopefully. But I am with you Ariel, if need be us Winx fans will band together and show them that we want Winx in America. There is power in numbers and we have many people on our side!

    TBH, I never expected they would anyway. I hate the 4kids dub, but I think it's horrible that they haven't made a statement whether they will or wont dub it because I see a lot of people have expected it for a while.. oh well. 4Kids haven't been interested since after season 3, and hopefully some other company will bring season for to the US/UK/CA. If not, at least we can see footage of the English dub online, and people where kind enough to subtitle the original.

    I hope you're right.. but when you've seen it before, are you sure they didn't say season finale?

  15. Once I was watching 4kids like a month ago and they showed a new commercial for the station and it had blooms voice person voiceing her and so I always thought that they dubbed season 4.

    ReplyDelete
  16. 4Kids used those exact same previews the first time they aired season 3, back when that WAS the final season. So this is either them being too lazy to create new episode previews while still intending to dub season 4...or a VERY pitiful way of crushing fans' dreams.

    But honestly, I never counted on 4Kids picking up Winx season 4. It's probably easier to try and see if Cinelume could sell their dub to YTV or something...

  17. Why get mad at 4Kids? They're going bankrupt, why would they buy a new property that never seemed to make that much money?

    Anonymous and haydub07 - The words "series finale" were both spoken by the announcer and written on screen during the commercial.

    kara - They never said they would dub Season 4.

    Fairy of Subterra - They only said that last time they aired Season 3. Never were the Season 1 or 2 finales referred to as "series finales".

    Ella and Ariel - There's very little chance 4Kids will dub it. Winx Club merchandise never did well despite heavy promotion. A petition won't work.

    Last Anonymous - Most of the 4Kids voice actors will return for commercials and video games. Liza Jacqueline tends to do this a lot for Bloom.

  18. @ICK8 try wakeing up at 6:00 on labor day last year last september waiting for the winx club: secret of the lost kingdom movie to come out on 4kids. 4kids is a total let down ever since it went from foxbox.

  21. Does this mean the end is near for the english version of Winx?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wait, they said they'll end with the movie? Remember the ending with the Trix? Will they end up just cutting that out?

  26. @ICK8- I do the same thing on HOLIDAYS ALSO!!

  27. Everyone, it's not that bad! I'm sure they don't mean it, they probably are just saying that and will end up showing season four, Winx club says stuff, and then changes what they say, alot, like in season three, they were going to have a mermaid transformation and already had a comic out about it, and changed it to Enchantix, and even if they really mean it, BanjoGate from youtube is unploading the entire season four in English! Not subs, Real English! She/he just needs to upload two more episodes to get the entire season uploaded!

    ReplyDelete
  28. No.they said season finale i swear!I saw this winx club episode Saturday June5th 2010 and the ads.I recorded the episode.L`ll check it now.Anyways LOV your website!LOV Winxclub!GO FLORA!

  29. @SBF- Are u sure? Is it the Rai English one or is it just fanmeade?

  30. Red Fountain Senior - Who said they were airing the movie?

    Stellabigfan - Winx Club is a fictional universe. 4Kids is a real life company. There is a huge difference. There is no evidence that the mermaid transformations were ever made for the show. All Season 3 concept art show Enchantix. And the mermaid transformations were used in a book, not a magazine.

    Anonymous - Read the text shown during the commercial. It clearly says "series".

    Bloom fan - It's the RAI English version.

  31. wait so there's no season 5? T^T

    ReplyDelete
  32. Rainbow is still producing Season 5. It's just 4Kids who are not dubbing the movie or seasons 4 and 5.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Well the more I think about it, the more it seems that we willn't get season 4 :( But there is always a chance another company could pick it up. Who knows, anything can happen.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Stupid 4kids! But I never liked the so I have nothing to loose! Btw: BanjoGate posted rai episodes on youtube!

    ReplyDelete
  35. It's gonna be a bit odd ending a series with such a cliffhanger i.e. Bloom saying that she's planning on finding her parents.

    ReplyDelete
  36. For those who think they said "season finale" here are some pics of the announcement:

  37. Noooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!! I only have the CW4kids!!!!!! Now I can't watch season 4!!!!!!!!!! Nooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!! :(

  38. I hope the comercial is wrong!!!!!!! I don't want to watch the RAI version online because I don't like their voices...I don't know what I'll do!!!!!!

  39. This sucks warthog anus-holes!!
    I want to assassinate 4KidsTV!!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Again, does this mean the end is near for the english version of Winx Club?

    ReplyDelete
  41. @Red Fountain Senior: Only the english version in regards to North America. They'll still continue to show it - most likely - in other english-speaking nations around the world (Australia, Singapore, etc).

    @Anonymous: If you really want to watch season 4 so much, get over your dislike of the voices... But if they really bug you so much that you can't stand listening, then watch the subtitled episodes uploaded by Banjogate on Youtube (however, he stopped doing this after episode 17 since he got a hold of the RAI English version).


    Anyways, I'll say it again that I never counted on 4Kids continuing with Winx. The company's already commented on their "re-branding," which included only changing their programming to the "newest, coolest" anime (from Japan). Obviously, Winx - and most of Rainbow's other properties, mainly Huntik - would not fit into this equation. It's been made clear - even if not officially stated - that Winx was dead to the USA (and by extension, Canada) in 2007 when season 3 first ended. It sucks, but there's nothing we can do but accept it, and go get our fix via Youtube...

  42. I'm not really familiar with Rai-English, but they will continue to be made, right?

    ReplyDelete
  43. @RFS- Idont really get what u are saying?

    @others- One of the reasons MIGHT be that the amount of romance in season4 is a lot and they usually cut off the parts where there is Romance(I know that they did once when layla hugged sky in season2)

    ReplyDelete
  44. will the season 4 (rai english) come to cartoon network (asia ) any news ?



    kairi u'r back !!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. but 4kids already dubbed the whole season 3 of winx club. just not season 4...

    ReplyDelete
  48. I just saw the picture on Michael's winx club from 7/21/07 and it does series finale.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Maybe they didn't want to show it because they think it is bad to show viewers the part where Nabu dies and don't want to show that. Well this is so unfair.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Also i just saw the picture of the end of season 3 and it say's series finale. This can't be happing. why us.

    ReplyDelete
  51. They have said it so many imes I still wonder if it will ever come on in America.... :'( But we can not I mean CAN NOT loose hope of them showing the 4th season of the show in America!

    ReplyDelete
  52. @Red Fountain Senior: So long as other english markets - Australia, Singapore, etc - have an interest in Winx, then Cinelume or another dubbing company should continue to make a RAI-English dub. =]

    ReplyDelete
  53. I agree with you we can not lose hope we might have a season 4 here!<3

    ReplyDelete
  54. How come other countries are lucky to have season 4 and we don't thats just unfair.

    ReplyDelete
  64. That means it is the SEASON finale not series.....i know they will do season 4!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I just checked Wikipedia, even though Wikipedia isn't really reliable, but I looked anyway. About a month ago, they had the American air dates on there, starting with August 14. I just checked now and all the American air dates say N/A. :/ This is really depressing if it's true. I mean...I have no problem watching the Italian subbed episodes, but to have my hopes being brought up with the possibility of season 4 being brought to 4Kids got me excited.

    ReplyDelete
  66. There are already english episodes of season 4 on youtub episodes 1-24(there missing 25&46}

    Go winx club!!!! Go bloom!

  69. I liked the 4kids version better even though they cut some parts for the enchantix transformations. The opening and voices were so much better :( even though the Rai version was ok..
