Shadow And Bone Season 3: Is It Happening?

| Published On

Shadow And Bone season 2 was spectacular with General Kirigan aka The Darkling going down by the end of it. However, it also ended on a cliffhanger with Alina and Mal parting ways leaving fans with a need for Shadow And Bone season 3. Hence, here is everything you need to know about the third season and its fate on Netflix.

Shadow And Bone Season 3 Release Date

An official renewal announcement for Shadow and Bone Season 3 has not been made yet. Although, the immense success of Shadow and Bone season 2 makes it highly likely that a third season will be greenlit. According to Jessie Mei, one of the cast members of Shadow and Bone, the entire cast is very enthusiastic about continuing the story for another season. She expressed their excitement and eagerness to delve deeper into the Shadow and Bone world and bring more of the story to life.

“There have definitely been discussions about where our characters might go, but with the nature of streamers, it’s down to how many people watch the show and what the response is like,” said Jessie Mei.

She further added, “I just really hope people watch it and enjoy it because I would love to go again and finish that story to see what happens to Alina. They’ve left it in an inspiring place, and I think it would be such a shame to finish the story there.”

Moreover, Eric Heisserer, the showrunner for the show, has also said that he always had three seasons in mind when he started working on Shadow And Bone. However, author Leigh Bardugo has even bigger plans for the series as she would love to have many more seasons of the show. She told Inverse that she would “love to see us get another five seasons.”

In addition to this, the first season premiered on Netflix in April 2021. The second season followed after two years. But, this delay was due to the pandemic. Now that everything’s back to normal, we can expect Shadow And Bone season 3 to release by Spring 2024 on Netflix.

No specific plot details have been revealed for Shadow and Bone season 3, and it is worth noting that the television adaptation has already covered significant portions of the source material with the second season incorporating elements from multiple books in the Grishaverse, including the Shadow and Bone trilogy, Six of Crows, and Crooked Kingdom.

Despite this, there is still more story to be told. The season-two finale diverges from the original book trilogy by altering the fate of certain characters. While the books conclude with the Darkling’s death and Alina and Mal finding a happy ending, the TV adaptation separates Alina and Mal and introduces new challenges into their world.

Consequently, season three will explore uncharted territory that both book and show fans will be unfamiliar with, although the series might eventually converge with the book’s ultimate conclusion.
