Shadow and Bone season two: Netflix renews fantasy series for more episodes

*WARNING: This article contains major spoilers for Shadow and Bone season one.

Shadow and Bone has been renewed for a second season.

Netflix has confirmed the fantasy series – based on Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse books – will be back for another run with stars Jessie Mei Li, Archie Renaux, Freddy Carter, Amita Suman, Kit Young, Danielle Galligan, Calahan Skogman, and Ben Barnes all set to return.

Executive producer and showrunner Eric Heisserer said in a statement: ‘I’m honoured and thrilled to return to the Grishaverse and continue the stories of these endearing characters, particularly Milo.’

Bardugo noted how exciting it will be to see more characters introduced to the audience.

The author added: ‘I’ve been writing in the Grishaverse for nearly ten years now, so I’m thrilled we get to keep this adventure going.

‘There are so many places we’ve barely gotten to visit and I can’t wait to introduce our audience to more of the saints, soldiers, thugs, thieves, princes and privateers who make this world so much fun to explore.

‘It’s going to be real magic to see our brilliant, talented cast expand.’

The show is set in Ravka, a mythical kingdom split in two by a dark storm known as the Fold.

The upcoming run will again be made up of eight hour-long episodes.

The first series ended on a major cliffhanger as Alina Starkov (Li) escape the control of Darkling (Barnes), but once she and her saviours went their separate ways, the Darkling returned with some sinister volcra backing him up.

Heisserer previously admitted to Variety that he wanted to end the season in a dramatic way as a way of ‘daring Netflix not to renew’ the show.

While the show combines both the Shadow and Bone trilogy with both the Six of Crows novels – despite different characters and timeline – it has proven to be a hit, with more to come.

He explained: ‘We had so much fun at the moments when these two sets of characters could find ways to integrate.

‘I have a lot of fun theories about how we can make this happen organically again, without really disturbing too much of the separate storylines that they’re on.’

Shadow and Bone season one is available on Netflix.
