Shadow and Bone series is the highly-anticipated since the first moment Netflix announced. Based on the bestselling fantasy book series by author Leigh Bardugo, the upcoming fantasy streaming television series has first pulled viewers’ attention with its trailer and glimpses along with raising the expectation. So, we gathered everything we know about Shadow and Bone so far, including its synopsis, release date, cast, and trailer. Let’s look at what we got together.
When the matter is to create fantasy shows, nobody can blame Netflix for not providing quality content for its subscribers, at all. I mostly claim this by leaning on examples such as The Witcher, Stranger Things, Fate: The Winx Saga, and much more. And now, there is not much doubt for Shadow and Bone joining among those fine additions. We also count on a little to all goodies we have been provided till now. Also, the truth of the Oscar-nominated screenplay writer serving on the upcoming show is another reason to be excited and a whole promise, anyway.

The story follows an orphan mapmaker and lowly soldier named Alina Starkov who unleashes an extraordinary power. With that power, she might be able to set her country in a wartorn world free. So, she requires training in order to become a magical soldier, Grisha, in an elite army.
