The series “Shadow And Bone” took Netflix by surprise and became one of the platform’s biggest hits. Within weeks of the release, what everyone expected was confirmed: the return for a second season. There is not much information about it yet, but small details have already been advanced that excite fans.
The series based on the novels of the same name by Leigh Bardugo already has its second part underway. The fiction showrunner, Eric Heisserer, confirmed on his Twitter account that the scripts for the next eight episodes had already been written. While it is not a confirmation that pre-production has started, it does mean that it is getting closer.
However, if you take into account the production time that similar series take in terms of scale and theme, it could take a while until “Shadow And Bone” returns to the platform. Netflix’s “The Witcher” takes about 18 months between seasons, so the wait could belong.
Also, fans of ” Shadow And Bone” can rest assured that the entire main cast of the series will return for the second installment. Ben Barnes, Jessie Mei Li, Archie Renaux, Fred Carter, Amita Suman, and Kit Young will be in the new season. In addition, it was confirmed that the goat Milo will also appear in the new episodes, something that surprised and pleased many.
What to expect from the new season
Although the details of the story are guarded with suspicion, it is known that the second part could adopt more than one book, something that Bardugo himself advanced. Regardless, the main plot of the second book follows Alina (Jessie Mei Li) and Mal (Archie Renaux) as they try to lead a normal life in Novyi Zem. That would not be an easy task for her, she must hide her powers.
On the other hand, the Darkling (Ben Barnes) returns from the shadows with more power than ever and will focus all his attention on finding Alina, as he still pretends to obtain her powers. In the book, he finds them in Novyi Zem and captures them. According to the end of the first season of “Shadow And Bone”, this plot is more than likely, although fans will have to wait to see if that happens in the same way in the series.
