The popular Netflix fantasy drama series, based on the Shadow and Bone novels by Leigh Bardugo, first arrived on our screens on April 23rd, 2021.
Is the Second Season of Shadow and Bone in Production?
Not yet, but production is expected to begin on the second season of Shadow and Bone in early 2022. Eric Heisserer, who served as showrunner on season 1, will continue his role for season 2, and executive producer Shawn Levy had this to say on the renewal:
“My 21 Laps colleagues and I are thrilled that audiences around the world can continue to explore the Grishaverse and revel in the epic, unique storytelling of Shadow and Bone. The fun of our jobs as producers is the collaboration with creative partners who inspire us. Leigh Bardugo and Eric Heisserer are two such partners; together they have created a world and pantheon of characters that fans all over the globe have embraced. We can’t wait to take viewers on the wild ride that comes next…”
