Netflix is back again with a live-action version of another book, namely Shadow and Bone. Based on one of the best selling books of Bardugo’s Grivashe series, it is an upcoming fantasy series soon available on Netflix.
Here’s all that we know about Shadow and Bone, the cast, plot, release date, and how is it connected to Six of crows.
In January 2019, Netflix gave the green light for an eight-episode first season.
The shooting began in October 2019 in locations like Budapest and Hungary. It was wrapped up in February 2020.
It’s in post-production since then. Keeping in mind the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we cannot expect it earlier than 2021.
The cast for the show was announced back in October with the likes of
•Ben Barnes as General Kirigan/The Darkling.
Jessie Mei Li as Alina Starkov.
Archie Renaux as Malyen Oretsev.
Amita Suman, as Inej.
Kit Young as Jesper Fahey.
Freddy Carter as Kaz Brekker.
The official trailer for the show isn’t available, although there are numerous well-made fan trailers around youtube and the Internet.
The show is based on the book of the same name. It brings together characters of two series ‘Shadow and Bone’ and ‘Six of Crows’, both of which take place in Bardugo’s Grishaverse series.
The official synopsis provided by IMDB is
“A young woman with newfound powers tries to save her land from a powerful, evil force.”
SIX OF CROWS
It was reported earlier by Netflix that the show is going to be a duology series combining the characters of both the storylines.
At San Diego Comic-Con back in July, Bardugo revealed that season one would have eight episodes, which will be equally divided between ‘Shadow and Bone’ and ‘Six of Crows.’
