Both the ‘showrunner’ of the Netflix series and the author of the literary saga want to see Wylan, Nikolai, Tolya, and Tamar.
One of the most anticipated releases of Netflix in 2021, Shadow and Bone, the television adaptation of Leigh Bardugo’s series of novels, has not needed more than a weekend to reach the Top 1 of most popular titles on the platform of ‘ streaming ‘. The followers of the ‘bestseller’ waited for her with open arms, but she has also been received in the same way by millions of subscribers around the world who know how to enjoy a good teenage fantasy ‘ thriller’ that she catches from the first episode.
In this first season of eight episodes of Shadow and Bone that are already available in full on the streaming platform, we have been able to meet the flesh and blood version of the protagonists of the fantastic literary saga, starting, how not? by Alina Starkov ( Jessie Mei Li ) herself, an orphan and cartographer who discovers she possesses magical powers during a trip to the frontier known as The Shadow.
The literary trilogy of which the Netflix original series is an adaptation, known as the Grisha Trilogy, is made up of Shadow and Bone, Siege and Storm, and Ruin and Rise, while there is sequel biology known as Six of Crows. Both are set in the same universe, known to fans as Grishaverso, but the events that take place in the sequel occur years later than those of the first trilogy. Although the first season is centered on the Grisha trilogy and takes its name from the first novel, it also includes characters from Six of Crows, such as Kaz, Inej, Jesper, and Nina.
Even in the absence of official confirmation by Netflix, the truth is that it seems that we can count on the renewal for a season 2. The creator of the series Eric Heisserer intends to do more seasons and, given its good reception among subscribers of the platform, it seems that it will be. On who will be back, we can assume that the protagonists of the first installment of Shadow and Bone return in full since no character dies in the first eight episodes. What about new faces? There are already some bets on the table to see some characters that have not been part of the first season.
About the first of them, Wylan, the ‘showrunner’ himself has spoken, who has revealed that the character of Six of Crows will definitely be in season 2, while the author Leigh Bardugo has explained in statements to Express.co.uk. that he would love to see Nikolai, Tolya and Tamar enter the scene.
