Anna Leong Brophy will take on the role of Tamar Kir-Bataar, who is a Heartrender and the twin sister of Tolya (more on him below). She appears in both the Shadow and Bone triology and the King of Scars books.
Alongside the four new cast members, Shadow and Bone also promoted Danielle Galligan, Calahan Skogman, and Daisy Head — who play Nina, Matthias, and Genya, respectively — to series regulars.
Here's the entire new and returning cast together in what I'd like to call an adorable back-to-school photo that I would also like to frame and put on my desk.
Shadow and Bone Season 2 will continue to follow Leigh Bardugo's Grishaverse novels and will likely follow the plot of both Siege and Storm and Six of Crows.
Siege and Storm picks up after Alina and Mal escape The Darkling inside The Fold, and now they are trying to keep her identity as the Sun Summoner a secret while The Darkling emerges from The Fold and is hellbent on finding Alina.
Meanwhile, since Season 1 acted as a prequel for our favorite Six of Crows characters — Kaz, Inej, Nina, Jesper, and Matthias — I'm assuming we'll finally start to see some of the plot from this book unfold in Season 2.
Basically, I simply cannot wait to see these new cast members bring to life some of the biggest (and best) book characters from the Grishaverse.
You can stream Shadow and Bone Season 1 right now on Netflix.
