Streaming giant Netflix has announced that they’ve renewed acclaimed fantasy series Shadow and Bone, based on Leigh Bardugo’s worldwide bestselling Grishaverse novels.
The new season will feature 8 all-new 1 hour episodes and stars 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.
Showrunner, writer and executive producer Eric Heisserer commented: “I’m honored and thrilled to return to the Grishaverse and continue the stories of these endearing characters, particularly Milo.”
Author and executive producer Leigh Bardugo also said: “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 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.
