Shadow and Bone is one of the most exciting fantasy shows you can stream on Netflix right now. The series is based on Leigh Berdugo's Grishaverse fantasy books that follows the story of Alina Starkov (played by Jessie Lei Mi) teenage orphan who grows up in the land of Ravka when, unexpectedly harnessing a power she never knew she had in order to save her childhood best friend, she becomes a target of intrigue and violence.
Season 2 of the Netflix's Shadow and Bone was already confirmed, but sadly, fans will have to wait a little longer. Based on the list of Netflix releases for September 2022, one thing is clear: the new season won't arrive this month.
Here's everything we know about Shadow and Bone Season 2's release date so far:
Shadow and Bone Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere on Netflix?
As expected, Netflix already renewed Shadow and Bone for a second season back in June, but the streaming giant hasn't officially confirmed an exact release date yet. Season 2 already wrapped production, but since the show is known for its spectacular visual effects, it'll likely take several months to complete its post-production work.
With this in mind, it's likely that Shadow and Bone Season 2 will arrive sometime in late 2022 or early 2023.
Executive producer Josh Barry shared a post on Instagram about going to Bulgaria, where the show films.

Shadow and Bone Season 2 Plot: What will the next season be about?
Shadow and Bone Season 2 will likely be based on the second book of the Leigh Berdugo's Grishaverse trilogy, Siege and Storm. The official description of the novel reads:
Hunted across the True Sea, haunted by the lives she took on the Fold, Alina must try to make a life with Mal in an unfamiliar land, all while keeping her identity as the Sun Summoner a secret. But she can't outrun her past or her destiny for long.
The Darkling has emerged from the Shadow Fold with a terrifying new power and a dangerous plan that will test the very boundaries of the natural world. With the help of a notorious privateer, Alina returns to the country she abandoned, determined to fight the forces gathering against Ravka. But as her power grows, Alina slips deeper into the Darkling's game of forbidden magic, and farther away from Mal. Somehow, she will have to choose between her country, her power, and the love she always thought would guide her - or risk losing everything to the oncoming storm.
In the Season 1 finale, Alina may have unleashed her power to defeat General Kirigan (Ben Barnes), but the villainous Shadow Summoner still lives, and he is expected to be more problematic in the second season.
In fact, Season 1 of the Netflix adaptation introduced the Crows, who weren't part of the main Grishaverse trilogy. In the books, they were introduced in the Crows duology instead. Fans have debated about whether combining the storylines worked, but it response seems to be mostly positive.
