Shadow And Bone Season 2 Just Reached An Important Milestone

The critically acclaimed Netflix series "Shadow and Bone" thrilled fans when it debuted in April 2021, leaving viewers hungry for more of the show's engaging fantasy adventure. Fans were excited when they received confirmation that Netflix had renewed "Shadow and Bone" for Season 2, and while details have been scarce since then, it looks like the show is finally making some progress.

The epic fantasy of "Shadow and Bone" is perfect binge material, taking place in an expansive but war-torn world based on a trilogy of novels of the same name written by Leigh Bardugo. The Netflix series follows orphan Alina Starkov (Jessie Mei Li), who discovers an immense power within herself that could destroy the Shadow Fold and reunite her home nation of Ravka. Season 2 of the show is expected to incorporate elements from either the original book's direct sequel, "Siege and Storm," or the first book in the spinoff series, "Six of Crows."

With the source material already in place, all that the show needs is a script for the next set of episodes so that everything else can start moving forward. Here is the critical milestone that Shawn Levy, CEO of 21 Laps Entertainment, said that "Shadow and Bone" Season 2 just reached.

Levy says the scripts are completed and production begins soon

Speaking with Collider, Shawn Levy revealed some vital details about the status of "Shadow and Bone." Levy, perhaps best known for his directorial work on films such as "Night at the Museum" and the upcoming "Free Guy," runs his own production company, 21 Laps Entertainment. The studio has produced film and television projects, with their most notable being "Stranger Things."

"Scripts written, heading into production shortly, in great shape, very much favorable to the characters in the world that we built and the Grishaverse that was put on screen in Season 1," Levy told Collider. He went on to say that creator Eric Heisserer would remain the showrunner, hopefully keeping strong leadership in place for the production of the next set of episodes.

While Levy didn't have much more to share about what was happening with "Shadow and Bone," he did reiterate that Season 2 was "getting kind of dangerously close to heading into production." With the scripts done, cast members already assembled, and a successful first season behind them, it shouldn't be too long before fans find about filming details and a possible release window for the next chapter of "Shadow and Bone."
