Shadow and Bone Season 2 Release Date, News, Cast & Spoilers

Spoilers for Netflix's Shadow and Bone Season 1 ahead.

On April 23, 2021, Netflix released its new fantasy series, Shadow and Bone, which was adapted from Leigh Bardugo's trilogy of the same title and her Six of Crows duology. Shadow and Bone follows the story of Alina Starkoov (played by Jessie Mei Li), a cartographer who finds out that she has sun-summoning powers. This gift makes her a member of a magical community of people called the Grisha.

Alina's powers can obliterate the Shadow Fold, a malevolent force filled with monsters called volcra that divides her country in half. General Aleksander Kirigan (Ben Barnes), the leader of the Second Army, is interested in Alina's powers.

Fans are loving how the fantasy books were adapted to a Netflix series created by Eric Heisserer and 21 Lapse Entertainment, and now, they want to know if the streaming giant is planning to produce a second season.

Has Netflix renewed Shadow and Bone for a new season yet?

According to What's on Netflix, Netflix has reportedly renewed Shadow and Bone for Season 2. However, Netflix hasn't officially confirmed if this report is true, but the site's source has been right about various series renewals, including The Winx Club and Ozark. It's likely that Season 2 of Netflix's Shadow and Bone will be released 18 months from the first season's release date, so it will most likely be released in 2022 or later.
