What will season two of Shadow and Bone be about?
The next chapter in the Shadow and Bone story will no doubt see the return of familiar faces such as Jessie Mei Li, Archie Renaux and Freddy Carter.
Given that the season one plot focused on the 2012 Shadow and Bone book, fans can expect the succeeding seasons to follow the storylines in the second and third books in the trilogy, Siege and Stormy and Ruin and Rising, respectively.
Author Leigh also has many more novels under her belt, including the Six of Crows duology and King of Scars duology that could also be incorporated into new seasons.
