Good news for everyone who welcome the arrival of the Grishaverse on TV with Netflix’s Shadow And Bone – the fantasy series is officially returning for a second season, as announced by a new video featuring the cast…

Adapted from Leigh Bardugo’s books by Arrival screenwriter Eric Heisserer, the series is set in a war-torn world where lowly soldier and orphan Alina Starkov (Jessie Mei Li) has just unleashed an extraordinary power that could be the key to setting her country free (as the trailer now makes clear, she’s a “sun summoner” who can control light). With the monstrous threat of the Shadow Fold looming, Alina is torn from everything she knows to train as part of an elite army of magical soldiers known as Grisha. But as she struggles to hone her power, she finds that allies and enemies can be one and the same and that nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. There are dangerous forces at play, including a crew of charismatic criminals, and it will take more than magic to survive.

Now we’ll get to see more of what happens with Alina, Malyen Oretsev (Archie Renaux) and General Kirigan, played by Ben Barnes, who was revealed to be something much more than he seems as the season went along. Naturally, with the season only finishing up the scripting stage, there’s no date yet, but we can imagine Netflix wanting to have it ready potentially for next April, in line with when the first season launched.
