Shadow and Bone is Netflix’s upcoming fantasy TV series . Following the successes of Stranger Things and The Witcher, Netflix is counting on the success of the newest fantasy series created in collaboration by Eric Heisserer and 21 Laps Entertainment.
Shadow and Bone is based on the first of the worldwide bestselling original Grisha-verse trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. The Netflix teaser trailer gives a glimpse into the Grisha universe as a war torn world with a populous of people who practice “small sciences” or spell work.
Shadow and Bone Series
The series is about Orphan Alina Starkov who unleashes an extraordinary power that just may set her country free. She is ripped from all she knows dear to join an elite force of mystical soldiers known as Grisha.
Struggling to hone her power, she quickly realizes enemies and allies can be one in the same. The dangerous powers at play will take more than mere magic to conquer.
Fantasy series are immensely popular, although few have measured up to the stalwart success of Game of Thrones. Since the original Shadow and Bone Trilogy box set (Shadow and Bone, Siege and Storm, and Ruin and Rising), Bardugo has published successors such as Crooked Kingdom and Six of Crows.
If the new fantasy series proves popular, Netflix will have plenty of meat left on the bone for subsequent spin offs.
