‘Shadow and Bone’ Canceled After Two Seasons


The live-action adaptation of the Grishaverse has unfortunately come to an end following today’s news that Netlix has opted not to renew Shadow and Bone for a third season.

Based on author Leigh Bardugo’s series of novels, collectively known as the Grishaverse, Shadow and Bone follows the story an orphan named Alina Starkov. The cartographer’s life is forever changed when she learns she is Grisha, and the discovery of her incredible powers leads to a harrowing journey to vanquish the Shadow Fold once and for all.

The Netflix series, which first premiered in 2021, brought Bardugo’s rich universe twofold by intertwining the events of the Shadow and Bone trilogy and the Six of Crows duology, the latter of which technically took place years later. Had the show continued, we would have likely even seen a version of the events of third duology (which began with King of Scars) play out.

Given the Grishaverse’s strong, vocal, and active fandom, it comes as a surprise that Netflix has made the unfortunate decision not to move forward with a third season.

Seasons 1 and 2 of Shadow and Bone are now streaming.

Lindsey joined the Nerds and Beyond team in 2018. If she's not writing or out and about with her camera, she's probably watching anime, nerding out over Star Wars, reading manga, and definitely forgetting to water her plants. And waiting for the Genshin loading screen to pop up. Contact: lindsey@nerdsandbeyond.com
