The most successful fantasy series creates whole worlds for viewers to explore, complete with new creatures, currencies, and languages. Shadow and Bone, based on Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse novels, is a widely awaited Netflix fantasy series that immerses viewers in the world of Ravka, an area of tangible darkness filled with monsters.
Shadow and Bone have already drawn comparisons to Game of Thrones. If the show proves to be as successful as predicted, Netflix is likely to renew it so that audiences can return to the Grishaverse. Here’s what we know so far about a potential second season.
Is the second season of Shadow and Bone been ordered?
Although Netflix has yet to renew the program formally, rumors have been secretly renewed for a second season. According to the report, Netflix will publicly confirm the renewal within a month of the show’s debut. If / when Shadow and Bone are revived, fans will have to wait a long time for the next season. Since the worldwide pandemic slowed other big projects, the show’s first season was a massive production shot mostly around Budapest, Hungary, and was logistically challenging. Season 2 of Shadow and Bone is expected to premiere in late 2022 or early 2023.

What will the second season of Shadow and Bone be about?
Our heroes Alina, Mal, Kaz, Inej, Jesper, and Zoya, escape from the Fold at the end of the last episode, with the wicked General Kirigan supposedly leaving for dead. Later, the two parties split up, with Kaz, Inej, and Jesper traveling to Ketterdam to deal with enemies seeking their heads for missing the Sun Summoner. The Darkling is more eager than ever to invoke Alina’s magic and use it to gain control over Ravkan.
With nowhere else to run, Alina enlists the assistance of a notorious privateer and embarks on a mission to command the Grisha army. Alina would have to choose between her strength and the love she believed would always be her refuge to save her country.
