What will expect from Shadow and Bone Season 2?
Shadow and Bone Season 2 Will Introduce New Characters and Mythology. Leigh Bardugo believes Season 2 will successfully combine the Shadow and Bone trilogy and the Six of Crows duology, even though it appeared impossible. Heisserer pledges to develop the plot, mythology, and characters of the universe, transporting the characters to Novyi Zem and Shu Han, two important Grishaverse countries. Fryklind said the season will also explore the amplifiers’ mythology, including Morozova, their creator, and how he fits into the tale and world. Read below full synopsis provided by Netflix.
Shadow and Bone Lands Season 2 Plot: Alina Starkov (played by Jessie Mei Li) is on the run. A beacon of hope to some and a suspected traitor to others, she’s determined to bring down the Shadow Fold and save Ravka from ruin. But General Kirigan has returned to finish what he started. Backed by a terrifying new army of seemingly indestructible shadow monsters and fearsome new Grisha recruits, Kirigan is more dangerous than ever. To stand a fighting chance against him, Alina and Mal rally their own powerful new allies and begin a continent-spanning journey to find two mythical creatures that will amplify her powers. Back in Ketterdam, the Crows must forge new alliances as they contend with old rivals and even older grudges that threaten not only their place in the Barrel, but their very lives. When a chance at a deadly heist comes their way, the Crows will once again find themselves on a collision course with the legendary Sun Summoner. Based on Leigh Bardugo’s worldwide bestselling Grishaverse novels, SHADOW AND BONE returns for a second season of new friendships, new romance, bigger battles, epic adventures — and a shocking family secret that could shatter everything.
