Shadow and Bone

Seasons: 2

Created by: Eric Heisserer 

Starring: Jessie Mei Li, Archie Renaux, Freddy Carter, Amita Suman, Kit Young, Ben Barnes, and Zoë Wanamaker

Shadow and Bone premiered on Netflix at the end of April 2021, and it was easily one of the most popular Netflix shows of the year. Popular doesn’t always mean good, though. So, should you watch Shadow and Bone?

Unless you’re new to Netflix Life, you know the answer is “YES!” Shadow and Bone is the best fantasy series since The Witcher, and it’s a must-watch on Netflix. It’s really, really good, and you need to watch if you haven’t yet.

The series is based on the book series by Leigh Bardugo. It tells the story of Alina Starkov, played by Jessie Mei Li, who discovers she has a great power that will help save her country. She’s swept into a world that she doesn’t know or understand to harness her power. Little does she know that there’s a plot to kidnap her in the works. Everything isn’t as it seems.

Shadow and Bone season 2 hit Netflix on March 16, 2023! Unfortunately, the viewing numbers for the season are not looking so good. We’re still waiting to see if it’s getting renewed for season 3.

Verdict: WATCH
