Shadow and Bone had a successful eight-episode run with fans hailing it as one of the finer book-to-screen adaptations of a young adult fantasy novel series. Based on the Grishaverse novel series, the show comes from showrunner Eric Heisserer, executive producer Shawn Levy, and author and executive producer Leigh Bardugo. Season 2 will see Jessie Mei Li’s Alina Starkov reprise her role alongside Archie Renaux’s Malyen Oretsev, Ben Barnes as General Kirigan, Freddy Carter as Kaz Brekker, Amita Suman’s Inej, and more. The cast got together to confirm the news. Adapted from Bardugo’s bestselling trilogy, Shadow and Bone follows Alina (played by Jessie Mei Li), a seemingly ordinary young woman whose life is upended when she demonstrates the ability to summon light. Her newly discovered gift puts her in the path of General Kirigan (Ben Barnes), a powerful Grisha leader who starts out as a mentor and potential love interest before revealing his nefarious plans involving the Fold.
