Netflix has released the first teaser for the second season of Shadow and Bone.
The first trailer, which was revealed at Tudum 2022, only offers a brief tease at the show’s upcoming season. Despite being only 40 seconds long, it packs a lot of footage in a short amount of time, with several quick cuts, providing a tantalizing glimpse of what’s to come in the second installment in the series.
Take a look at the first teaser for Shadow and Bone season 2 below:
There’s not much we can really learn from the fast-paced nature of this trailer. But, there are a few things that are sure to pique the interest of fans of the hit Netflix show.
We get our first looks at all the main characters joining the second season of Shadow and Bone, including Patrick Gibson’s Nikolai Lantsov, Lewis Tan’s Tolya Yul-Battar, Anna Leong Brophy’s Tamar Kir-Battar, and Jack Wolfe’s Wylan Hendriks.
The footage also reveals that the show’s upcoming release will offer a lot in the way of fantasy-based action and drama. We see Archie Renaux’s Mal on the run from the law, Calahan Skogman’s Matthias being handcuffed and taken away, and Wylan joining forces with the Dregs. We also witness Nikolai telling Jessie Mei Li’s Alina Starkov that she’s a symbol, and Ben Barnes’ Darkling asking someone what they’re willing to sacrifice to achieve their goals, among various emotional moments.
No release date has been revealed alongside the sneek peak, but Netflix has confirmed that Shadow and Bone season 2 will be with us sometime in 2023. Filming on season 2 wrapped in early June, so post-production work production is well underway. The first trailer doesn’t contain any VFX or CGI elements, but they’re sure to be worked on as we speak (or rather, type).
We previously speculated that the next issue of Shadow and Bone will arrive in Spring 2023 (which is Fall 2023 for those in the Southern Hemisphere). Fingers crossed, we’re right, but we’re happy to wait longer if it means Shadow and Bone season 2 is as good as this teaser makes it out to be.
