Netflix Renews SHADOW AND BONE for a Second Season

Netflix’s critically-acclaimed fantasy series "Shadow and Bone", based on Leigh Bardugo’s worldwide bestselling Grishaverse novels, has been renewed for a second season. The first season was a surprise hit with more than 55 million member households watching the epic new fantasy series in its first 28 days. The series also made the Top 10 list in 93 countries around the world and hit #1 in 79 countries, including Australia, Brazil, Germany, Russia, Spain, South Africa, and the U.S.

Following the series' success on Netflix, the actual Shadow and Bone trilogy and Six of Crows duology novels returned to bestseller lists worldwide and has spent over a month in the #1 spot on The New York Times Bestseller list. As before, the new season will feature 8 all-new 1 hour episodes.  

Writer and executive producer Eric Heisserer: “I’m honored and thrilled to return to the Grishaverse and continue the stories of these endearing characters, particularly Milo.”

Quote from author and executive producer Leigh Bardugo: “I’ve been writing in the Grishaverse for nearly ten years now, so I’m thrilled we get to keep this adventure going. There are so many places we’ve barely gotten to visit and I can’t wait to introduce our audience to more of the saints, soldiers, thugs, thieves, princes, and privateers who make this world so much fun to explore. It’s going to be real magic to see our brilliant, talented cast expand.”

The confirmed cast for season 2 are Jessie Mei Li (Alina Starkov), 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) are set to reprise their roles. 

This news was announced today at Netflix Geeked’s first-ever Geeked Week, a virtual fan-facing event revealing first looks and celebrating all things genre entertainment at Netflix.
