Shadow and Bone Season 2: What We Know So Far in 2022!

Shadow and Bone Season 2 Release Date

At this time, we have no information on the premiere of Season 2. However, the cast revealed that they had finished filming on June 6 during Netflix Geeked Week 2022:

When might we expect to see Season 2 of Shadow and Bone on Netflix? As previously stated, the post-production process for Shadow and Bone will be extensive due to the requirement to add VFX shots and the musical score to existing scenes. Also, once the episodic editing phase begins, it’s possible that reshoots and pick-ups will be necessary, which would further delay the premiere. Several other problems still need to be worked out, such as adjusting the lighting and audio for specific scenes and sequences.

To make a long story short? We won’t be seeing season 2 of Shadow and Bone until after 2022. We think that a release date (or launch window) will be announced before the end of the year (maybe during Tudum 2022? ), with a formal announcement and possible teaser trailer arriving in the first few months of 2023. We estimate that the second season of Shadow and Bone will premiere in February or March 2023 based on Netflix’s typical practice of releasing teaser trailers for its episodes and movies roughly one month before to their launch.

Still, we won’t mind waiting a little longer if the folks working on Shadow and Bone need it to fix any problems. Make it as good as you can, and the audience will be patient if it’s delayed.

Other cast members returning for season 2 include Kaz Brekker, Jesper Fahey, and Inej Ghana. It is expected that the Dregs’ story (more on this below) would coincide with that of Nina Zednik and Matthias Helvar, just as the Six of Crows duology did, allowing for a connection between the three of them. Expect them to join forces like they do in the novels because this was hinted at in the season 1 finale. According to TVLine(opens in new tab), Danielle Gilligan and Calahan Skogman have been promoted to series regulars, making this plotline all but assured.

Tolya Yul-Battar and his sister Tamar Kir-Battar, played by Mortal Kombat’s Lewis Tan and Traces’s Anna Leong Brophy, are the show’s last two newcomers for the time being.

Tolya is a Grisha Heartrender and one of the pirates working for Sturmhond in the novels. Meanwhile, Tamar is a Heartrender like Sturmhond, but she used to be a part of his squad. Expect portions of the plotline from one of the spin-off novels, in which the two meet Zoya, to be included into the upcoming season of Shadow and Bone.

Before this, it was unknown if Zoe Wanamaker’s Baghra will return for Season 2. But a photo of Wanamaker posted to Instagram by main actress Jessie Mei Li(opens in new tab) all but guarantees her return. Also, TVLine(opens in new tab) reports that Daisy Head, who portrayed the Queen’s tailor in the first season, has been promoted to a series regular for the upcoming second season.

Shadow and Bone Season 2 Trailer

And there won’t be for some time to come, either. Shadow and Bone season 2 will have begun post-production, but there won’t be a trailer until after the holidays. Our best guess is that it will be released in the first two months of the new year, in January and February. Naturally, we won’t be too upset if one arrives sooner than that.

Shadow and Bone Season 2 Story

Season 2 of Shadow and Bone will probably pick up where Siege and Storm, Six of Crows, and King of Scars left off. That’s because of the established precedent created by the season 1 finale plus the fact that the show has added new cast members.

Season 2 will pick up where Season 1 left off, with Alina and Mal continuing their trip to new regions in an effort to keep Alina out of Kirigan’s grasp. Eventually, they will run meet Nikolai, but more on him later.

In the season 1 finale, Kirigan’s use of his Darkling powers to create the Nichevo’ya was revealed. These monsters, in contrast to the Volcra of the Fold, are able to function normally even during daytime hours. Defeating them will be a challenge for Alina and Mal.

Netflix’s Kirigan/the Darkling, Ben Barnes, has said he hopes season 2 will “drift off” from the tale in the books in a similar way to how season 1 incorporated the Dregs into Alina’s storyline, as reported by Collider(opens in new tab). Shadow and Bone season 2 potentially taking such a departure from the source material is exciting. This would be great for longtime followers because it would introduce them to brand new material, yet some readers may be dissatisfied with any changes made to the source material from the novels to adapt them for television.

Meanwhile, the Dregs will likely join forces with Nina to liberate Matthias, while the Fab Five and Wylan will work together to save Bo Yul-Bayur. In Siege and Storm, the Shu scientist and Fabrikator who created a chemical the Grisha find addictive are imprisoned in Fjerda’s Ice Court. However, the Dregs’ initial mission to try to capture Alina in Shadow and Bone season 1 already made use of the Ice Court’s “impossible heist” theme, so it’s possible that Bo’s rescue will be changed for the TV series.

We must now draw to a close… In the meantime, keep checking for the latest information.
