When is Shadow and Bone Season 2 coming to Netflix? Based on Leigh Bardugo’s two series books, “Shadow and Bone” and “Six of Crows”, the fantasy drama first premiered in April this year. The series revolves around an orphan girl, Alina Starkov, who comes to know that she possesses special powers. She has the ability to save the earth and summon the sun. Moreover, she is the only one who could destroy the Shadow Fold. Since its premiere, the show has received immense appreciation for its plot beyond the books. The costume, graphics, action scenes, etc. have captured the eyes of the audience.
Shadow and Bone Season 2 Renewal Status and Production Updates
Netflix renewed Shadow and Bone Season 2 in June this year, two months after the first season’s premiere. However, since then, we haven’t heard anything about the fantasy drama. According to some sources, the casting has just begun for the show. There are several actors and actresses who have pitched for roles in the upcoming season. Henceforth, this means that there is quite some time left before the production. Producer Shawn Levy has hinted that they will commence the productions very soon. Besides that, he has also mentioned that the scripts are written. This means that they can begin the productions any day.
So far, there is no release date for Shadow and Bone Season 2. The filming for the first season began in October 2019 and went up to March 2020. And then a year later, we saw the debut season in April 2021. The first season consisted of 8 episodes, each 45-60 minutes long. Keeping that in mind, we can expect to see a new season towards the end of 2022. However, we will keep you updated regarding the productions. With the ongoing pandemic situation, a delay in production is not a big surprise for us. As far as the number of episodes is concerned, we expect that it will consist of 8 episodes as well. Although, there is no official announcement regarding that.
We expect to see the following casts in Shadow and Bone Season 2:
- Jessie Mei Li as Alina Starkov
- Archie Renaux as Malyen Oretsev
- Freddy Carter as Kaz Brekker
- Amita Suman as Inej Ghafa
- Kit Young as Jesper Fahey
- Ben Barnes as General Kirigan/ The Darkling
- Danielle Galligan as Nina Zenik
- Calahan Skogman as Matthias
Shadow and Bone Season 2 Expected Plot
At the end of season 1, Nina gets Matthias arrested in order to save him, but he thinks that Nina has betrayed him. Besides that, Zoya turns against Kirigan. She comes to know that he expands the Shadow Fold. Moreover, Alina learned about her powers to save the world. In Shadow and Bone Season 2, Alina will further discover her powers. The story will most likely borrow from the book, Siege and Storm. However, we also come to know in season 1 that Kirigan is more powerful than anyone would have ever imagined. Let’s see what happens in the upcoming season.
