    "Shadow And Bone" Has Officially Been Renewed For Season 2, And Here's Everything We Know So Far

    Everyone start a prayer circle for Nikolai and Wylan appearing next season.

    It's time to dust off your Keftas and get some waffles, because Netflix announced today that Shadow and Bone has been renewed for Season 2.


    The cast shared the news with fans in this adorable video, and I'm just so happy we get to see them play these characters again.

    I mean, look how happy they all are. I can't stop smiling.

    According to Netflix, Shadow and Bone was viewed by "more than 55 million member households" in the "first 28 days" when it hit the streaming platform back in April.

    The series also made Netflix's Top 10 list in 93 countries around the world and hit #1 in 79 countries, including the US.

    And because of the success of the show, Leigh Bardugo's Shadow and Bone trilogy and Six of Crows duology spent over a month at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list.

    "I've been writing in the Grishaverse for nearly 10 years now, so I'm thrilled we get to keep this adventure going," Leigh Bardugo said about the show's renewal.

    The Darkling saying, "Fine. Make me your villain"

    "There are so many places we've barely gotten to visit, and 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."


    Leigh continued, saying, "It's going to be real magic to see our brilliant, talented cast expand."

    If you're a fan of the books, like me, you're probably waiting for some key book characters to make an appearance in Season 2, like Nikolai and Wylan.

    Netflix revealed today that while the cast of Season 1 will all be reprising their roles, "additional casting details" will be shared at a later date 馃憖.

    Speaking to BuzzFeed earlier this year, Leigh Bardugo hinted at Wylan appearing soon, saying, "All I can tell you is if we're lucky to get a second season, you will not be missing Wylan for long."

    And I'm assuming Nikolai won't be far behind, considering it's pretty safe to assume that Season 2 will pull a lot of story from Siege and Storm, the second book in the trilogy.


    Can you tell I just need Nikolai Lantsov in my life?!?!?!

    Also, since Season 1 featured a lot of prequel for our beloved Crows, the next season could finally start to pull stories from Six of Crows.


    Just like Season 1, Shadow and Bone Season 2 will consist of eight one-hour episodes as we continue to follow Alina's journey.


    Basically, I am already so pumped for Season 2 and I can't wait to see this cast bring to life even more monumental moments from the books.
