As if we needed another reason for 2020 to finish up, Netflix finally announced that the adaptation of Leigh Bardugo’s bestselling Grisha series will be released in the spring of 2021.
Shadow and Bone, under the watchful eye of program creator Eric Heisserer, which had wrapped up its initial production of season one in early 2020, is set to be released in April next year, and fans of the series will no doubt be more than happy to hide away in their homestead to binge watch it.
Netflix has also given us their overview of the series as well as a more complete cast, including some familiar characters such as Zoya Nazyalensky, the Apparat, and David:
Based on Leigh Bardugo’s worldwide bestselling Grishaverse novels, Shadow and Bone finds us in a war-torn world where lowly soldier and orphan Alina Starkov has just unleashed an extraordinary power that could be the key to setting her country free. With the monstrous threat of the Shadow Fold looming, Alina is torn from everything she knows to train as part of an elite army of magical soldiers known as Grisha. But as she struggles to hone her power, she finds that allies and enemies can be one and the same and that nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. There are dangerous forces at play, including a crew of charismatic criminals, and it will take more than magic to survive.
