Shadow and Bone hit Netflix on Friday, April 23, and fans are binge-watching the full first season as soon as they can. Obviously, that means fans are wondering when Shadow and Bone season 2 is coming out.
Well, there have been a few rumors, rumblings, and reports about Shadow and Bone season 2, and we’re going to share those with you soon.
Given the nature of this, there might be a few spoilers about season 1 of the Netflix original series below.
When is Shadow and Bone season 2 coming out?
Netflix has not confirmed that report, and we’re not expecting the streaming network to do that for at least after a month or so following the premiere date.
We have to assume Shadow and Bone is coming back for season 2. This show has so much potential. I don’t think Netflix is playing a season-by-season game here; I think this show will be around as long as the creative team wants to make it. If things go the way I think they will, this is going to be a multi-season, long-running Netflix show.
Netflix can’t possibly end this series with Alina and Mal on the run! Did you see what happened to the Darkling? We haven’t even seen the best part of Kaz, Inej, and Jesper’s story yet! This can’t possibly be the end!
Unfortunately, we haven’t heard anything about the Shadow and Bone season 2 release date yet. And, we haven’t heard anything about production starting soon or anything like that.
Hopefully, production starts soon, but we don’t know if that’s in the cards or not with the current state of the pandemic.
Shadow and Bone was filmed in and around Budapest, Hungary, and we have to imagine that’s where season 2 would be filmed, as well.
We’re expecting a long gap between the premiere of season 1 and the release of season 2. Big shows like this with action sequences and CGI and effects take much longer than the regular Netflix dramas and comedies.
Shadow and Bone season 2, if everything goes well, could be released on Netflix sometime in 2022. I think spring 2022 might be a little early, so I’m going to make a more conservative prediction of a fall 2022 release date.
New seasons of The Last Kingdom, The Witcher, The Umbrella Academy, and other Netflix shows like this are released about 18 months apart. We’re assuming Shadow and Bone season 2 will follow a similar timeline.
So, expect the new season sometime in 2022, probably much later in the year.
That’s the best we can do for now! Stay tuned for more news about Shadow and Bone season 2.
