After a long and eager wait, Netlix has finally revealed four key cast members for the second season of the hit fantasy series Shadow and Bone.
Based on Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse novels, Shadow and Bone finds us in a war-torn world where lowly soldier and orphan Alina Starkov has just unleashed an extraordinary power that could be the key to setting her country free. With the monstrous threat of the Shadow Fold looming, Alina is torn from everything she knows to train as part of an elite army of magical soldiers known as Grisha. But as she struggles to hone her power, she finds that allies and enemies can be one and the same and that nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. There are dangerous forces at play, including a crew of charismatic criminals, and it will take more than magic to survive.
New cast members for season 2 will include Lewis Tan as Tolya Yul-Bataar, Anna Leong Brophy as Tamar Kir-Bataar, Jack Wolfe as Wylan Hendriks, and finally, a role that has kept Shadow and Bone fans on the edge of their seats waiting … Patrick Gibson as Nikolai Lantsov.
The cast of the series shared a video to announce the news and also to confirm that season 2 has officially begun production in Budapest! Minimal information is known about the second season at this time, and a release date has not yet been confirmed.
