Things We Saw Today: Netflix’s Shadow and Bone Renewed for Season 2

More Grishaverse is on its way!

Pack your bags and get your beloved goat Milo ready, we’re heading back into the Grishaverse thanks to Netflix renewing Shadow and Bone for a second season! And with the numbers that Netflix is reporting for this show in its first 28 days—55 million households chose to watch the epic fantasy—it’s of little surprise that we’ll be seeing more of author Leigh Bardugo’s world onscreen.

According to Netflix’s official announcement, showrunner, writer, and executive producer Eric Heisserer said, “I’m honored and thrilled to return to the Grishaverse and continue the stories of these endearing characters, particularly Milo.” (The last part there being the most important if we’re being honest. #BringBackMiloForSeason2)

Leigh Bardugo, the author and executive producer of Shadow and Bone also shared: “I’ve been writing in the Grishaverse for nearly ten years now, so I’m thrilled we get to keep this adventure going. There are so many places we’ve barely gotten to visit and I can’t wait to introduce our audience to more of the saints, soldiers, thugs, thieves, princes, and privateers who make this world so much fun to explore. It’s going to be real magic to see our brilliant, talented cast expand.”

  • The new season will feature 8 all-new 1-hour episodes. Jessie Mei Li (Alina Starkov), Archie Renaux (Malyen Oretsev), Freddy Carter (Kaz Brekker), Amita Suman (Inej), Kit Young (Jesper Fahey), Ben Barnes (General Kirigan), Danielle Galligan (Nina Zenik) and Calahan Skogman (Matthias Helvar) are set to reprise their roles. Additional casting details to be shared at a later date.
