Shadow and Bone, which is based on the well-known Leigh Bardugo Grishaverse trilogy, debuted in April 2021 and quickly gained enormous popularity among fans of fantasy series. Soon after its first release, the show would return for a second season. You’ll be disappointed to learn that Netflix won’t be getting Shadow and Bone season 2 until October 2022 if you were hoping for a release this month.
In fact, after the streamer’s Tudum event on September 24, it appears that the series won’t be returning to Netflix at all in 2022.
Below is the most recent Shadow and Bone season 2 release update.
Shadow and Bone season 2 is coming in 2023
Fans have been eagerly awaiting word of the release of Shadow and Bone’s second season ever since it was confirmed that filming would wrap up in June 2022.
Many people, including ourselves, had hoped that the series would return by the end of 2022. However, during the streamer’s event, which included an incredible sneak peek at the second episode that you can check out below, it was announced that Shadow and Bone season 2 will debut in 2023.
However, precisely when in 2023? We may be able to approximate even though we don’t have absolute knowledge.
When could Shadow and Bone season 2 come to Netflix?
Before their premiere, Netflix originals typically spend six to eight months in post-production, but in unique circumstances like these, post-production can take considerably longer. Given that production on the show came to an end in June 2022, we think the earliest season 2 of Shadow and Bone might return to our screens is in February 2023.
Take our projection with a grain of salt, though, as post-production may take longer due to the volume of special effects required to bring the Grishaverse to life. We’re certain that over the coming months, more information will be made public and we’ll be able to provide you a more precise release date. Keep checking back for more Netflix Life news and updates till then.
Shadow and Bone season 2 cast
Li and Barnes aren’t the only ones returning to the Grishaverse; Archie Renaux, Freddy Carter, Amita Suman, Kit Young, Danielle Galligan, and Calahan Skogman are also.
Four new cast members will join them: Patrick Gibson as Alina’s ally Nikolai Lantsov; Anna Leong Brophy and Lewis Tan as twins Tamar Kir-Bataar and Tolya Yul-Bataar; and Jack Wolfe as Wylan Hendriks, the last crow from Six of Crows.
The show will continue to be based on Leigh Bardugo’s books
The second season of the television series might be influenced by Siege and Storm, the second book in the Shadow and Bone trilogy. Here is a rundown of the story’s action:
Power has increased for Alina Starkov, but not without cost. Because of the lives she claimed in the Shadow Fold, she is the Sun Summoner and is being pursued across the True Sea. She and Mal can only outrun their adversaries for a short time. To obtain Alina’s magic and use it to seize the Ravkan throne, the Darkling is more committed than ever. Alina, who has nowhere else to turn, recruits a notorious privateer to assist her command the Grisha army. Alina, however, drifts further from her humanity and into the Darkling’s deadly game of forbidden magic as the truth of her fate comes to light. Alina will have to decide between using her power and the love she believed would always be there to protect her in order to save her nation.
However, the narrative will make use of Barudgo’s Six of Crows duology, specifically the six crows Kaz, Inej, Jesper, Wylan, Nina, and Matthias, just as season one. Wylan didn’t show up in season one, but he will in season two thanks to a casting call.
Showrunner Heisserer told Collider, “I would love to talk about what we might see from Six of Crows in the second season. “I can promise that Wylan will be present in every single Wylan episode. We definitely want to present him. And we would like to stay in Ketterdam for at least a little bit longer. In Season 1, we had to sort of yoink our Crows away from it and direct them toward the Fold and beyond for their robbery. And I believe that at least some of our team’s games in the upcoming season should be played at home.”
