What Is The Plot Of Shadow And Bone Season 2?

As an adaptation from Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse, the Shadow and Bone Season 2 will be following the second book of the series, titled Siege and Storm. Despite the book's popularity and most of those who are watching the series have already read, small screen adaptations have a life of their own. So, some tweaks and changes will be accounted for.

According to showrunner Eric Heisserer, he has plans to bring the characters, Wyland and Nikolia into the fold prematurely in Shadow and Bone Season 2. Heisserer did not expound on what will be adapted into the live-action series and what will be left in the pages of the book.
