Renewed Or Cancelled?
Shadow and Bone is a thoroughly enjoyable fantasy series, with high production values and a lovable band of characters. After finishing the whole series, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:
What is Shadow and Bone Season 2 about?
Shadow and Bone season 2 picks up where we left off with our dual storylines taking precedence for the 8 episodes. The first follows Alina as she heads off on the hunt for amplifiers to increase her power and destroy the Fold once and for all.
Unfortunately, Kirigan is still lurking about, having survived the onslaught during season 1’s finale. Even worse, he’s now in control of those shadow monsters and he means business, desperate to stop Alina no matter what.
Meanwhile, the Crows continue to be led by Kaz, who sets off with his group on various different heist missions, which eventually interweave into Alina’s storyline. All of this builds up to a dramatic and world-changing fight during the final two episodes.
We have extensive coverage of Shadow and Bone on the site, including a full season review and recaps for every episode. You can check those out HERE!
Has Shadow and Bone been renewed for season 3?
At the time of writing, Shadow and Bone has not been renewed for a third season. Given the nature of the show’s content, that could well change if it does good numbers for Netflix.
Generally Netflix gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate. The completion rate is one of the most important metrics though, as recently revealed with the shock cancellation of 1899.
With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton & Irregulars) Other times, it can take months before Netflix make a decision over a show’s future.
So far, Shadow and Bone has had a pretty good reaction from critics and audiences alike, although some avid book readers have expressed their disappointment over how certain plot points have been changed and the increased emphasis on the Crows.
Given the way this show is set up, we’re predicting that this will not be renewed for a third season. The show has a lot of promise about it and the ending certainly looks set to increase the stakes. So why no renewal? Well, that earlier completion stat is a big point and given we’ve seen heavy-hitters like The OA, 1899 and Warrior Nun fall by the wayside, Shadow and Bone could well follow suit. We hope we’re wrong on this one but we’ll have to wait and see.
We’ll be sure to update this section with accurate details over the coming weeks and months when we know more!
What we know about season 3 so far:
Barely anything is known about season 3 at this point, given Netflix have not green-lit a sequel. If this is renewed, expect the threat to turn toward this Fjerdan weapon, the virus that caused the “red wedding” and what havoc that will cause across the realm.
As mentioned above, we predict that this will not be renewed but we do hope we’re wrong on that front. We’ll have to wait and see what happens. We’ll be sure to update this page in the future when more information is known though!
