Netflix’s Shadow And Bone Season 2 is arriving on Netflix sooner than expected. The streamer recently announced that the fantasy drama series will premiere in 2023. Based on the Grishaverse books by Leigh Bardugo, the series first premiered on April 23, 2021, with a total of eight episodes. Season 1 adapted the Shadow And Bone trilogy trailing the story of young Alina Starkov. So, when exactly does Season 2 drop on Netflix? Keep reading to find out the details!
Shadow And Bone Season 2 Continues Alina’s Journey
In the forthcoming season, Alina will be back to wield the light against a group of dangerous enemies. She wields the power to summon sunlight while trying to survive in a world of assassins, princes, thieves, and a hot-yet-dangerous dark lord. Ever since Season 1 premiered, fans have been patiently waiting for an update on the show’s continuation. With Shadow And Bone Season 2 officially set to premiere on March 16, 2023, fans can expect several twists and new storylines.
Talking about the series, showrunner Eric Heisserer explained, “The most wonderful thing about Season 2 is that we get to advance the story of these characters that we’d left in precarious positions at the end of Season 1. There’s a lot of potential for them this season. They have to face the consequences for their actions, and then they get to meet new people along the way.”
“The Grishaverse also expands in this season, both in mythology and in characters. In doing so, we expand the world, we got to new locations, we visit Novyi Zem and She Han, and those are all integral to the narrative,” he added.
Shadow And Bone Season 2 Centers On Morozova
Co-showrunner Daegan Fryklind also explained that they have included more of the mythology from the books this season especially the amplifiers and their creator Morozova. As per ComicBook, the upcoming season will also dive deeper into who he was and what his back story is along with his connection with the world. Although the makers were skeptical of bringing together the Shadow And Bone and Six Of Crows, it seems more possible this season.
The makers also hinted at the introduction of new characters that don’t come together in the books. Season 2 is going to be unique that way. And fans of the Grishaverse would surely be surprised at the changes and how these new storylines come together.
What Is The Grisha Universe?
For the unversed, the Grisha universe comprises nations of Fjerda, Novyi Zem, Ravka, Shu Han, Kerch, and the Wandering Isle. Each of these nations adapts elements of culture, language, and tradition from real-world countries (from different time periods).
On the other hand, Grishas are the people who are described as magic users but they describe themselves as Small Science practitioners. They possess the ability to manipulate matter at the smallest (molecular) level.
