Alina and her allies must get ready because the battle against the Darkling and his shadow army begins in ‘Shadow and Bone’ S2.

The series is based on Leigh Bardugo’s worldwide bestselling Grishaverse novels. If you’re a Hunger Games or His Dark Materials fan, this is perfect for you. This story is filled with secret powers; there’s danger around every corner and a world in peril to save. The first season is available on Netflix now.

In an alternate, war-torn world Alina Starkov, a young woman and talented map maker, unleashes a phenomenal power to conjure pure light. A power that could set her country free by destroying the Shadow Fold – a growing, nearly impenetrable darkness that’s taking over the land. She joins an elite force of magical soldiers known as the Grisha to learn how to control her powers. Alina’s journey will require her to navigate a dangerous world and duplicitous people to meet her destiny.

Season one ended on a cliffhanger. Alina and her allies did the best they could to take down the fold, but The Darkling survived. That battle continues in the new season.

General Kirigan and his new army of shadow monsters from the Fold seem indestructible, but Alina Starkov and Mal Oretsev and their allies are willing to try. The group goes on a continent-spanning journey to find mythical creatures that will amplify Alina’s Sun Summoner powers. While she prepares for a showdown, the Crows get a chance at a deadly heist back in Ketterdam – one that will bring them together again.
