More magical adventures and battles take place in the Grishaverse as Shadow and Bone season 2 is streaming now on Netflix. The fantasy drama based on Leigh Bardugo's books returns with heroine Alina Starkov (Jessie Mei Lin) on the run from the nefarious Darkling, General Kirigan (Ben Barnes).
Shadow and Bone season 2 is streaming now on Netflix.
After failing to take down the Shadow Fold that divides the nation of Ravka, Alina and best friend Mal (Archie Renaux) head across the sea to hide. They are also seeking amplifiers to increase Alina's power as Sun Summoner and allies to join the fight.
She needs both more than ever, as Kirigan proves to be alive (though not well). Worse, he's brought with him a terrifying new army of seemingly indestructible shadow monsters.
Meanwhile, in Ketterdam, Kaz Brekker (Freddy Carter) and the Crows find themselves in hot water with a local crime boss. In that same city, Heartrender Nina Zenik (Danielle Galligan) seeks a way to free her love, the former witch hunter Matthias (Calahan Skogman), from prison.
