Shadow and Bone, a popular fantasy series on Netflix, has now received a release date for Season 2. The second season’s filming ran from early January 2022 to June 6, 2022.
The characters and plot of the upcoming film have already been disclosed by Netflix.
Here is all we know about Season 2 of Shadow and Bone:
The popular Grishaverse book series by Leigh Bardugo, Shadow and Bone and Six of Crows, served as the inspiration for the first fantasy series.
After debuting on Netflix, the series has received mainly positive reviews from both viewers and reviewers. In its first 28 days, the show was watched by more than 55 million households.
Shadow and Bone Season 2 is to be released on March 16, 2023 and will also consist of eight episodes as the first one.
The drama adapts the story of young Alina Starkov, an orphan and cartographer of the Ravka nation’s First Army, as she discovers she is a Grisha, one with special gifts, and one long-awaited to address a dire need in the universe.
The first season introduces Alina (played by Jessie Mei Li), who discovers her power of light. She was saved by the Second Army and the Shadow Summoner, General Aleksander Kirigan (Ben Barnes) though he was seen as one of the villains in the drama. He tried to control her.
Another part of the story features the gang leader of Crow, Kaz Brekker (Freddy Carter) and his members of the troop Jesper (Kit Young) and Inej (Amita Suman). who was hired to kidnap Alina.
The season ends with Kirigan being killed after seeing what he has done to West Ravka. Alina becomes free from Kirigan’s control with the help of Crows. Shadow and Bone Season 2 will feature Kirigan the Darkling is alive. He will start taking his revenge.
Kirigan is the “most powerful man in the universe.” He’s the most powerful [person] in the universe, manipulates the darkness and is feared by other people because he’s employing this politics of fear to push his agenda,” Ben Barnes told Us Weekly.
He also told, his character in the series will be slightly different in Shadow and Bone Season 2.
“I think the character becomes a bit more representative in Alina’s mind of what the darkness is and a bit symbolic, and I wanted to keep him as a human being,” Barnes told Collider in April 2021.
“He’s manyfold more powerful, now that he has the walking, living volcra that he can summon and send at his will without even having to use his hands to use magic.”
