In 2010, it was publicly announced that Nickelodeon gained the rights for Winx Club in several countries, after 4Kids had lost their rights for Winx Club, and that it will be co-producing Seasons 5 and 6 along with Rainbow.
Season five began airing in August 26, 2012 in the USA on Nickelodeon, and from October 16, 2012 it aired in Italy and most other countries as a Global Premiere.
Season 5 has been named Winx Club: Beyond Believix on Nickelodeon (similarly to how Season 4 was named Winx Club: The Power of Believix and how the third season was named Winx Club: Enchantix). Now, the transformational battle cry is "Magic Winx! Harmonix!" and later, "Magic Winx! Sirenix!".
This season is also much more strongly connected to previous seasons through references and character cameos than the fourth season was. First thirteen episodes aired to America between August 26, 2012 and November 25, 2012. A Magix Christmas aired Sunday December 9, 2012 at 1/12c on Nick.
After the thirteenth episode, the show went on a three-month hiatus and returned with new episodes on February 17, 2013. The season came to an end on April 24, 2013 in Italy and September 22, 2013 in America.
The Winx Club are back and much stronger than ever. This time the Winx will have their journey underwater and will have to face a new dreadful villain, Tritannus. He was a normal triton who was mutated into a powerful monster caused by pollution. His main goal is to rule all the world by entering the Infinite Ocean!
The Believix power is not strong enough underwater, as the Believix wings are useless when they become wet hence the Winx start a challenging quest to get the ancient Sirenix power and become Ocean Fairies.
Wonderful sea creatures such as the Selkies will help the fairies in this “Underwater Mission”. Will the Winx manage to save the Magic Dimension? Will they prevent Tritannus from becoming the evil Emperor of the Infinite Ocean?
Evolutionary fairy transformations and forms
Harmonix is a temporary transformation given by the Guardian of Sirenix to help the Winx swim faster and make their powers work efficiently underwater during their quest for Sirenix.
Sirenix is an ancient, evolved fairy transformation and has tremendous magical sea-themed powers that was born out of the magic of the oceans. According to Daphne, the three Ancient Witches had cursed the Sirenix power with evil magic, and the curse is extended to any fairies that receive Sirenix.
