Netflix Announces New YA Fantasy Series ‘Shadow & Bone’ Release Date

Netflix is gearing up to release a brand new young adult fantasy series called Shadow and Bone!

The streaming platform revealed that the upcoming show will be out in April 2021 with a little teaser video.

Shadow and Bone
is based off the book series of the same name by Leigh Bardugo, who actually serves as an executive producer on the show.

“We’ve taken the stories of Shadow and Bone and the characters of Six of Crows and we’ve brought them together in what I think will be a really unexpected way,” Leigh said in a Netflix Q&A, via People. “When they watch this show, audiences are going to encounter a world that feels fully realized — but that doesn’t feel like any place they’ve been before. When I was on set, I didn’t want to leave. I wanted to stay in that world longer.”

Here’s a synopsis: In a world cleaved in two by a massive barrier of perpetual darkness, where unnatural creatures feast on human flesh, a young soldier uncovers a power that might finally unite her country.

But as she struggles to hone her power, dangerous forces plot against her. Thugs, thieves, assassins and saints are at war now, and it will take more than magic to survive.

The show stars Jessie Mei Li as Alina Starkov, Archie Renaux as Malyen Oretsev, Freddy Carter as Kaz Brekker, Amita Suman as Inej, Kit Young as Jesper Fahey and Ben Barnes as General Kirigan.
