Streaming giant Netflix has renewed fantasy drama Shadow and Bone for a second season; following a solid debut for the series.
Season two of the series, based on Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse novels, the Shadow and Bone trilogy and companion series Six of Crows; will consist of eight episodes, the same number as the first.
“I’m honoured and thrilled to return to the Grishaverse and continue the stories of these endearing characters; particularly Milo the goat,” said showrunner Eric Heisserer. Jessie Mei Li, Archie Renaux, Freddy Carter, Amita Suman, Kit Young, Ben Barnes, Danielle Galligan and Calahan Skogman are all set to reprise their roles in season two.

Netflix says 55 million member accounts worldwide viewed Shadow and Bone in the four weeks after its April 23 premiere (the company considers two minutes of watching a series or movie a “view”). In the United States, Nielsen figures say viewers spent 2.47 billion minutes watching the series over its first three weeks.
“I’ve been writing in the Grishaverse for nearly ten years now; I’m thrilled we get to keep this adventure going,” said Bardugo, who is an executive producer of the series. “There are so many places we’ve barely gotten to visit. I can’t wait to introduce our audience to more of the saints, soldiers, thugs, thieves, princes, and privateers who make this world so much fun to explore. It’s going to be real magic to see our brilliant, talented cast expand.”
