Shadow and Bone Season 2 all to set to be premiered? Here’s everything you should know about the show

The future of Alina (Jessie Mei Lei) and Mal (Archie Renaux) remains uncertain, but the danger, as hinted at in the Shadow and Bone Season 1 conclusion, is just getting started. In Season 2, General Kirigan (Ben Barnes) reemerges with much greater powers.

Alina is devoted to bringing down the Shadow Fold and rescuing Ravka from ruin. To some, she is a ray of hope, while to others, she is a suspected traitor. However, this time, General Kirigan is supported by a scary new force of menacing new Grisha recruits and seemingly unstoppable shadow monsters. Even a few battle scars on the face cannot quell the rage of this Darkling, as these first look images demonstrate. Alina and Mal must assemble their strong new allies in order to defeat him, and they must go out across several continents in search of two fabled creatures that can enhance her abilities.


Shadow and Bone, a fantasy series on Netflix that is based on two of author Leigh Bardugo’s best-selling book series, “Shadow and Bone” and “Six of Crows,” was an instant sensation when Season 1 debuted on the service on April 23, 2021. Eight episodes were produced for Season 1 under the direction of showrunner Eric Heisserer, and eight more were ordered for Season 2.

Many mysteries remained unresolved in Shadow and Bone’s season finale, which also hinted at more turmoil ahead and set up potential future plotlines. Here is all we currently know about Shadow and Bone’s impending Season 2 on Netflix, including returning cast, new characters, filming dates, and more, for series fans who are eager to see what comes next.

Release Date of Season 2:

In June 2021, Heisserer announced on his personal Twitter account that Season 2’s script has been finished. Netflix granted Heisserer and the team the go-ahead to begin creating new episodes even though it was unclear whether or not the programme would be renewed. Fortunately, they were accurate, and Shadow and Bone was already prepared for Season 2 at that point. Finally, Season 2 of Shadow and Bone will premiere on March 16, 2023, according to a Netflix announcement made on December 8, 2022.

Cast of Season 2:

For the second season of Shadow and Bone, the whole core cast will be back. This includes Archie Renaux (The Greatest Beer Run Ever) as Malyen “Mal” Oretsev, Alina’s best friend and all-around nice guy, as well as Jessie Mei Li (Last Night in Soho) as Alina, the mapmaker-turned-Sun Summoner. Ben Barnes (The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian) plays General Kirigan, also known as The Darkling.

As for the Crows, they are led by Kit Young (The School for Good and Evil) as Jesper Fahey, Kaz’s best friend and incredibly funny sharpshooter, Amita Suman (The Sandman) as Inej Ghafa, Kaz’s right-hand woman who is also known as “The Wraith” for her spying skills, and Freddy Carter (Pennyworth) as Kaz Brekker, also known as “Dirtyhands” by And don’t worry, Milo the goat will undoubtedly be back for the remaining episodes.
