Netflix’s latest sci-fi/fantasy series has officially dropped, and fans are eager to figure out what’s to come next. While the streaming service typically releasing full seasons at once is the perfect way to binge-watch, we tend to blow through shows in a weekend and wish we had more. I’m sure this will be the case for Shadow and Bone, as the first season has only eight episodes and a second installment has not been officially announced.
So for anyone who has already finished the first season of the TV adaptation of the YA book of the same name by Leigh Bardugo, we’re here to get into Shadow and Bone season 2. Netflix does sometimes release new seasons soon after a show’s debut, and Who Killed Sara? is the perfect example of this. The Spanish-language thriller premiered on the platform on March 24, and fans were pleasantly surprised to hear the second season would be coming out less than two months later on May 19.
Unfortunately, however, this is not the case with Shadow and Bone.
Shadow and Bone season 2 release date
We can definitively confirm Shadow and Bone season 2 is not coming out in May 2021. How are we so sure? Well, Netflix has yet to even officially renew the series. That being said, we really do not know what a possible release date for a second installment could be. If filming starts up soon, we’d still likely be looking at a 2022 timeframe, and if they don’t start shooting until 2022, we could possibly be waiting until 2023 for season 2. This is all merely speculation, however.
There have been reports that Shadow and Bone season 2 is in the works, but we’re waiting on Netflix to make that announcement so we know for sure. With there being multiple books in Bardugo’s universe, we’re all but sure a second installment is coming, and probably a few more after that.
We’ll keep you updated on all things Shadow and Bone season 2, but for now, just know it will not be coming out in May 2021.Next: Shadow and Bone ending explained: How does season 1 end?
