The story of the Grishaverse will continue, as Netflix has renewed Shadow and Bone for a second season.
Shadow and Bone debuted on Netflix to great acclaim earlier this year and has apparently proven popular enough to warrant a second season. Eight episodes have been ordered for this new season, which will continue the story of Alina Starkov and the Grishaverse.
Starring Jessie Mei Li as Alina Starkov, the cast includes Archie Renaux (Malyen Oretsev), Freddy Carter (Kaz Brekker), Amita Suman (Inej), Kit Young (Jesper Fahey), Ben Barnes (General Kirigan), Danielle Galligan (Nina Zenik) and Calahan Skogman (Matthias Helvar), all set to reprise their roles in Season 2.
Created, written and executive produced by Eric Heisserer, Shadow and Bone brings together the stories and characters of both Shadow and Bone and Six of Crows, two overlapping series that take place in Bardugo’s Grishaverse.
Shadow and Bone finds us in a war-torn world where lowly soldier and orphan Alina Starkov (Mei) has just unleashed an extraordinary power that could be the key to setting her country free. With the monstrous threat of the Shadow Fold looming, Alina is torn from everything she knows to train as part of an elite army of magical soldiers known as Grisha. But as she struggles to hone her power, she finds that allies and enemies can be one and the same and that nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. There are dangerous forces at play, including a crew of charismatic criminals, and it will take more than magic to survive.
Season one of Shadow and Bone is currently available to stream on Netflix.
