This Shadow and Bone article contains spoilers for Season 1.
While Shadow and Bone has yet to get an official Season 2 order from Netflix, a continuation of the epic fantasy series based on the Grishaverse book series by Leigh Bardugo seems inevitable. The first season of the fantasy drama dropped on Netflix on Friday and, as much as it tells a satisfying story, it is very obviously setting up a seasons-long saga that will take us through the three books of the Shadow and Bone book series and the the two books of the Six of Crows series. While the season ends with Alina, Mal, and the Darkling all in place to follow the Siege and Storm plot, the characters that hail from Six of Crows—Inej, Jesper, Kaz, Nina, and Matthias—appear to be on their way back to Kerch… and to the events of their first book. While Season 1 of Shadow and Bone incorporated new writing to give the Crows a role in this story set before the events of their own, Season 2 seems poised to dive right into the events of Six of Crows, effectively bringing that story up a few years to coincide with Siege and Storm and Ruin and Rising.
What is Six of Crows About?
This includes some spoilers for Six of Crows.
For those who haven’t read the books, Six of Crows takes place after the events of Ruin and Rising, and is primarily set in Kerch, the island nation located west of Ravka, and Fjerda, the kingdom to the north of Ravka, where Matthias is from. It follows six young criminals—Kaz, Inej, Jesper, Matthias, Nina, and Wylan (show-watchers haven’t met him yet)—who are hired to break a well-known scientist named Bo Yul-Bayur out of a nearly impenetrable Fjerdan prison. To do so, they must first break Matthias out of Hellgate, a prison on a tiny island outside of Kerch, where he has been imprisoned on suspicious of being a slave trader.
