Netflix is developing an adaptation of Shadow and Bone, based on Leigh Bardugo's bestselling novels Shadow and Bone and Six of Crows, two overlapping series that is set in the Grishaverse universe. As Deadline reports, the adaptation will be an eight-episode series from Eric Heisserer, writer of Netflix's popular film Bird Box, and Shawn Levy, executive producer of Stranger Things. Bardugo also serves as executive producer.
Pouya Shahbazian (the Divergent series) will also executive produce the series alongside Bardugo, Shawn Levy, Dan Levine, Dan Cohen and Josh Barry for 21 Laps, and the show will be produced by Netflix. A new book set in the Grishaverse universe, titled King of Scars, will be released later this month.
Shadow and Bone brings together the stories and characters of both Shadow and Bone and Six of Crows, two overlapping series that take place in Bardugo’s Grishaverse. In a world cleaved in two by a massive barrier of perpetual darkness, where unnatural creatures feast on human flesh, a young soldier uncovers a power that might finally unite her country. But as she struggles to hone her power, dangerous forces plot against her. Thugs, thieves, assassins and saints are at war now, and it will take more than magic to survive.
