Ever since Shadow and Bone first appeared on Netflix in the April of 2021, fans have been desperately awaiting a season 2. Unfortunately, due to COVID norms, Netflix couldn’t renew the series early on. In fact, when the platform announced the show’s renewal in May of the same year, fans were expecting the shooting to begin soon after that. But, come January and the shooting still hasn’t begun. So, when is the release date of Shadow and Bone season 2? Find here all the important details.
From Game of Thrones to The Witcher, from The Last Kingdom to Vikings and its spinoff series Vikings: Valhalla, fans of high fantasy have seen middle-age Europe and its recreations time and again. To do something different and bring to fans a new perspective with a new culture and fascinating history, Leigh Bardugo created the Grishaverse.
The Grishaverse is a take on Imperial Russia, under the Tsardom of the Romanov family. The rigid classist society, the powerful monarchy, the country torn due to war, and finally, a monarchy that is so disconnected from its people that they forget about their struggles- all of this can be traced back to 19th century Russia ravaged after wars as significant as the Napoleonic wars and the Tsardom of the Romanov family.
With a backdrop of magic and its likes, season 1 of the series health with the first book in the Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. In season 2 of Shadow and Bone, we will watch Alina and Mal run from the Darkling, who seeks revenge and Alina’s powers. Adding to the mix, there will be new characters in this Netflix adaptation.
