The streaming giant is all set to release a new adult fantasy series titled “Shadow and Bone.” This show is about to join the likes of The Witcher and Cursed and will take you to a whole new world: The Grishaverse.
Netflix has dropped a brief teaser for the fans, and we gotta admit that it’s pretty impactful. We saw a majestic elk in the video that stood atop rocky terrains and did something with its large antlers that could only be described as magic. We also hear a mysterious voice in the teaser that said, “You and I are going to change the world.”
Shadow and Bone is an adaptation of a novel written by Leigh Bardugo. If you have read the novel, you must be itching to watch this series. The story of Alina Starkov, a young woman who discovers the truth about herself, is a Grisha. A Grisha is a Magical being who can manipulate elements of Earth.
Alina’s special powers attract the attention of both good and evil, and she finds herself at the center of a war between dark and light.
Netflix is known to spice things up, and that’s what it will do with Shadow Bones. The timeline will become complicated to understand, even for the devoted fans. Netflix will feature the three books’ events, but it will also include plot lines from other Grisha stories “Six of Crows.”
Yeah, it is the ultimate crossover for the fans. Now the Grishaverse is in the capable hands of Netflix. Showrunner Eric Heisserer and Bardugo revealed some interesting details about the series. Since the series will have portions from different timelines, which means Six of Crows and Shadow Bones, viewers will witness the new sides of characters.
Heisserer revealed his approach to making it work. They have created prequel stories for the major characters Inej, Kaz, and Jesper. Bardugo stated that molding two fantasy series together had been the heavy lifting.
Just like us, Heisserer is also excited about this reunion. He stated that he is most excited about the characters meeting. Shadow and Bone starred by Jessie Mei Li as Alina Starkov. We will have Freddy Carter as Kaz Brekker, Ben Barbes as General Kirigan, Anita Suman as Inej, and Jesper Fahey will be played by Kit Young. Most of the cast is new.
