It’s official! Shadow and Bone is getting a season 2!
The Netflix show confirmed the renewal for a second season through a pair of videos of the cast announcing the good news. In the first video, the cast is just hinting at season 2 and saying they’ve got big news to share. Shortly after, they posted another video confirming that the whole cast will be coming back for another season.
In the announcement video, they also expressed their gratitude to the fans that watched and supported the show, saying that they wouldn’t have been able to do it without them. While it’s a usual sentiment from shows when it comes to acknowledging the support of their fans, it’s especially true for Shadow and Bone seeing as a big part of its success was how vocal the fandom – which was already big due to the book series – was about their love for the Netflix original.
The renewal announcement came on the first day of Netflix’s Geeked Week, which is a week dedicated to celebrating genre stories across film and TV. With Shadow and Bone being one of Netflix’s newest and most popular original fantasy shows, it was the perfect way to kick off the virtual event.
Shadow and Bone is based on a book trilogy of the same name by Leigh Bardugo. This best-selling series is part of the Grishaverse, which contains two more duologies set in the same magical universe that Bardugo created.
It’ll be a while until we get to binge the second season seeing as we just got the news. In the meantime, though, you can stream the first season of Shadow and Bone on Netflix now.
