Shadow and Bone season 2 Release Date, Cast & Plot (Netflix Updates), Netflix has officially confirmed that it will be returning to Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha World for a second season, after more than “55 million family members chose to watch the series in its first 28 days,” whatever that means. It sure looks like a lot of people have seen it.
Shadow and Bone season 2 Release Date
Sure, fans can expect to wait a while – filming on Season 1 was completed over a year ago before it airs on Netflix, and if fans can expect a similar schedule, we’re unlikely to see Season 2 of Shadow and Bone until at least a year ago. And a half from now, maybe two years.
However, the coronavirus pandemic has likely delayed the arrival of season one, so season two could have smoother (and faster) post-production once filming begins.
In April 2021, showrunner Eric Heisser told TVLine, “I want [the series] to continue as long as it’s welcome and gives life to these characters as long as we don’t get past that welcome. There is a lot of material written by me, there are many compelling characters, and I think that This groundbreaking show could run for four seasons. And then we can see if there’s a new space to live in with any of these people, or which part of the world we want to spend more time with.”
Shadow and Bone season 2 cast
It should be assumed that all the main cast will return including Jesse May Lee, Ben Barnes, Archie Reno, Sujaya Dasgupta, Emily Head, Luke Pasqualino and Emily Head.
While “The Crows” (Kaz, Jesper, and Inej, performed by Freddy Carter, Kit Young, and Amita Suman) do not appear in Grisha’s second novel by Bardugo, they also do appear in the first novel – and it is possible that a second season will show an adaptation of their story. From their first feature appearance, Six of Crows.
“These worlds collide [later] in the books, so naturally these lines cross,” Bardugo told us.
“I think that’s how we’re going to approach it. The way I look at it is, it’s kind of an alternate Grishaverse timeline. It’s not how it’s appeared in the books, but there’s a way to retain the heart of the story, the spirit of the characters, and still give readers This very different approach to the world.”
Shadow and Bone season 2 plot
We actually have a pretty good idea of what will happen in Shadow and Bone season two, assuming it’s based on Bardugo’s second Grisha novel Siege and Storm just as season one was based on her first book Shadow and Bone.
Without giving too much away, the story is likely to see Alina and Mal’s attempts to lie low thwarted by the Darkling, who (as we saw at the end of season one) now has the ability to create an army of shadows whenever he pleases. This sparks off a civil war between those loyal to the Darkling and those loyal to the crown, with Alina pulled between both groups before a cataclysmic finale.
However, Leigh Bardugo has suggested that season two could also pull from other books in her series, just as season one pulled from her Six of Crows duology despite those books originally being set in a different time period.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if we ended up pulling some things from different books,” Bardugo Said “This is something that has done very well.”
