Filming is almost complete on the Netflix adaptation of Leigh Bardugo’s fantasy novel series Shadow and Bone. We can expect to see the eight new episodes in late 2022 or early 2023. Netflix revealed the cast list and plot of Shadow and Bone season 2.
Information about Shadow and Bone Season 2
As a reminder, Netflix launched the first season of the series on April 23, 2021. It looks like Netflix’s decision to renew the series was driven by the strong viewing figures of the first season. The show was seen by more than 55 million households in the first 28 days. No wonder they renewed the show for another season in June 2021.
Filming for the second season of Shadow and Bone began in January and is scheduled to end in May 2022. The show reportedly has a budget of between $3,000,000 and $4,999,999 per episode. Eric Heisserer will serve as showrunner for Season 2 as well.

Shadow and Bone Season 2 Content: What to Expect
The story takes place in a war-torn world plagued by the Shadowfold, a strip of permanent darkness separating east from western Ravka and inhabited by carnivorous winged creatures known as Volcra.
The story of Shadow and Bone Season 2 continues at the end of Season 1. Eventually, the series ended with orphaned cartographer AlinaStarkov discovering that she is a Grisha, a magical user with the legendary power to create light that could be the key to freeing her country from the herd.
Alina is snapped from all she knows to train as part of an elite Grisha army that serves under General Kirigan, the shadow summoner.
But as she struggles to hone her power, she finds that allies and foes can be alike and that nothing in this lavish world is as it seems. There are insidious forces at play, including a charismatic gang of criminals known as the Crows, and it will take more than their newfound powers to survive.
As the story of Six of Crow progresses, we’ll learn more about the experiences of Kaz and his crew. The Darkling is alive, stronger than ever, and bent on revenge.
As filming for Season 2 is nearing completion, Netflix has announced some Shadow and Bone news that may arrive during Geeked Week, which will last from June 6th to 10th. Hopefully there will be a teaser or something meaty.
