Netflix’s brand new fantasy show Shadows And Bone has started making rounds for itself. The show already had a huge audience to live up to—especially the ones who are fans of the Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. Clearly, from the trailer, Netflix did invest a lot in bringing out the universe of Shadow And Bone. In turn, the show was destined to be part of other big Netflix fantasy shows. It joins the likes of The Witcher, Fate: The Winx Saga, and Warrior Nun. Now, as the show is here, it seems like it has pretty much lived up to the hype garnering praise from around the world.
Netflix’s Shadow And Bone follows a story set in a world where humans are battling dark forces with not much hope. Until an orphan named Alina discovers she is the sun summoner. This turns everyone’s attention to her to grab her on their side because of the terrific powers she carries. Here in the post, we are taking a look at if we can expect a second season for Shadow And Bone or not? Plus, what could be about?
Will There Be A Shadow And Bone Season 2?
Probably Yes, there are a number of underlying reasons that can be marked. They speak out loud for Shadow and Bone to continue its story with a second season. First of all, let’s look at the reception of the first season of Shadow And Bone. It’s enormous; let the fans of original books aside. It seems like the regular Netflix audiences have also adored and welcomed the show. As of now, the show has a 93% approval on Rotten Tomatoes and scores 8.4/10 on IMDb. So audiences are clearly speaking for themselves.
The second evident reason is the first season is an adaptation of only the first half of the trilogy. This trilogy includes books as the Shadow and Bone books as well as the Six Crows Dulogoy. So, yes, there is a lot of source material that is yet to be covered. The story stays afloat for more. Plus, Netflix seems definitely interested. Especially with the budget, they have put on to create a universe of Shadow And Bone, that is. It clearly competes with the likes of HBO’s Game of Thrones.
Lastly, there are already nods stating Shadow And Bone’s renewal status. It seems Shadow And Bone have seen the green light for another run. It’s just a matter of time. Well, we think everyone knows the process Netflix likes to carry on. They observe the show’s run before canceling it or renewing it for at least a month. So, although Shadow And Bone Season 2 might have been renewed, the official announcement will only come after a month or so. But yes, all fingers do point for the second season of Shadow And Bone. Plus, if the show really becomes a huge success, do expect a spin-off with Six Crows duology as well.
What To Expect From Shadow And Bone Season 2?
Of course, the first bet is to continue the story. We are bound to see Shadow And Bone adapting the next book in the line, probably. The second book is titled Siege and Storm. The official synopsis of the book gives us a few cues on what Shadow and Bone Season 2 might be about. It sees Darklings trying their level best to conquer the sun summoner Alina and her magic. Alina and Mal, who broke away from the group in the finale of the first season, might found themselves away. In turn, looking for new friends and allies probably. Thus, bringing in an army to take on the Fold.
We might see General Kirigan making a return. General’s death is something left in the air at the end of Shadow and Bone Season 2. Furthermore, Alina will be seen mastering her skills and energy she posses which everyone is scared of. The official synopsis of the book further reads that Darklings might have their own games with their forbidden magic. Plus, a sacrifice will be required, and Alina might have to choose between her power and love. So expect a few tear sheds even though the first season ended on a better note—all in Shadow And Bone Season 2.
