Shadow and Bone 2 will be done?
Shadow and Bone is definitely Netflix’s best fantasy product since The Witcher, as we have explained at length in our review of the first season of Shadow and Bone.
Consider also the success of the show in these first days of release and the popularity of the book series from which Shadow and Bone is based. It is more than legitimate to believe that the second season is already fully confirmed. Although we point out that there are no official news from Netflix at the time of writing about the renewal for a second season of Shadow and Bone.
The author of the series of books set in the Grishaverse world, Leigh Bardugo, during an interview with Inverse even stated that she hopes to see another five seasons of Shadow and Bone. As ambitious as it may be, there is obviously a lot of material that Netflix can draw on, which means that Shadow and Bone could become a true epic.
But how will things go? How does the cliffhanger affect the future of the Grishaverse? As you can imagine, not much is known about how the second season could be developed, but we can get an idea by analyzing the statements of the cast and crew and based on the books of the Leigh Bardugo saga.
SHADOW AND BONE2 RELEASE DATE: WHEN WILL IT BE ON THE AIR?
We assume that Netflix original series don’t always air every year like traditional channels or cable. And if we take into account how big a production of a fantasy series is, we can calculate that Shadow and Bone could return by the end of 2022, even if it could slip to 2023 also due to all the numerous production delays that the television industry has. has had to deal with recently.
SHADOW AND BONE 2 CAST: WHO WILL BE THERE?
When Shadow and Bone returns, we can probably assume that the following cast members will return for the second season:
- Jessie Mei Li as Alina Starkov
- Ben Barnes as General Kirigan / The Darkling
- Freddy Carter as Kaz Brekker
- Amita Suman in the role of Inej Ghafa
- Kit Young as Jesper Fahey
- Archie Renaux as Malyen “Mal” Oretsev
- Danielle Galligan in the role of Nina Zenik
- Zoë Wanamaker in the role of Baghra
- Luke Pasqualino as David Kostyk
BUT WHAT DOES THAT FINAL CLIFFHANGER MEAN FOR THE DARKLING IN THE SECOND SEASON?
“He obviously has a different kind of power now,” Ben Barnes said in an interview with Digital Spy and the press.
“He is someone who has had an army and has been in charge of this medieval hierarchy, someone who is revered and feared. But now he is even more alone “
“He’s kind of an omnipotent character now. He just has to think of something dark, and this will happen. So it will be interesting to see which characters we find him interacting with as we move forward. “
Looking ahead, Ben Barnes also made this interesting comparison with the books:
“There’s a huge potential for the character, because in the books, The Darkling becomes something dark in Alina’s head. This makes the character not very human. And so I’d be interested to see what the show will do to make him still human instead.”
ZOYA NAZYALENSKY, A KEY CHARACTER IN THE NEXT SEASONS
Another cast member we can expect to see more of is Sujaya Dasgupta as Zoya Nazyalensky. Speaking with EW, author Leigh Bardugo explained that her story is central to the books, including the duology that focuses on Nikolai Lantsov, king of Ravka, which is why her part was expanded in the first season:
“With the latest installment of the Grishaverse, which is Rule of Wolves” – the second and final installment of the King of Scars duology – “I put, if not a period, at least a very firm semicolon at the end of these stories for me . Now I know where Zoya’s story is going. “
SHADOW AND BONE 2 PLOT: WHAT WILL THE SECOND SEASON TALK ABOUT?
The adaptation of the literary saga on Netflix deviates somewhat from the books, as, as we know, the Dark and Bones series is based on the first books of the Grishaverse trilogy and the characters of Six of Crows, but we expect the synopsis of the second novel , Siege and Storm, is sure to provide a blueprint and a canavaccio for what’s to come in Season 2:
Sought across the True Sea, haunted by guilt over her lives broken in the Fault, Alina, the mighty Evocaluce, is trying to rebuild a life with Mal in a land where no one knows her true identity. However, he should have learned this, one cannot escape one’s past. Nor, above all, can one escape one’s destiny forever.
In fact, the Dark One, who not only survived the Fault but also acquired a terrifying new power, is more determined than ever to reclaim control over Alina for himself to seize the throne of Ravka. Not knowing who else to turn to, Alina accepts the help of an unpredictable ally. Together with him and Mal she will fight to defend her country which, at the mercy of the fault and a weak king and rapacious tyrants, is rapidly falling apart. To succeed, however, the Evocaluce will have to choose between the exercise of power and the love that she thought would always be her safe haven. In fact, only she can face the impending storm that is about to hit Ravka and no victory can be earned without sacrifice.
During a recent interview with Digital Spy, Jessie Mei Li talked about the final cliffhanger in season one will impact Alina in season two:
“Alina goes from being a frightened puppy who can’t look anyone in her eyes, to suddenly having this sense of responsibility. We feel that she has grown a lot, and she is really strong. But she still has a long way to go, it’s a really good time to leave her. We know where she is going now and where she needs to go. “
One plot development that we will certainly see from the books is the introduction of Nikolai, a pirate prince who turns out to be none other than the former king of Ravka. Speaking with Inverse, showrunner Eric Heisserer hinted at his arrival but didn’t delve further.
SHADOW AND BONE 2 TRAILER: WHEN WILL WE SEE A SEASON 2 TRAILER?
The series has been officially renewed and production of the second season probably won’t start until the end of the year. We can expect to have a first look at Shadow and Bone no earlier than 2022.
