The second season of Shadow and Bone just premiered on Netflix and after binge-watching it, most fans have got the same query on their mind – when exactly will Shadow and Bone season 3 come out?

Based on the popular young adult fantasy novel of the same name by Leigh Bardugo, the fantasy drama follows Alina Starkov, an orphaned mapmaker who discovers she has a unique power to summon light, which could potentially destroy the deadly darkness known as the Shadow Fold that is a danger to her world.

Starring Jessie Mei Li as Alina Starkov, Ben Barnes as General Kirigan, Archie Renaux as Malyen Oretsev and Freddy Carter as Kaz Brekker, the plot for the show combines the story of Shadow and Bone with that of Six of Crows, another book by Leigh Bardugo set in the same world.

After waiting for two years, fans are finally getting to experience the second season of the series. Most have already binge-watched the entire second season, and are already curious about the status of the third season.

What will ‘Shadow and Bone’ season 3 be about?

As of now, no details about the plot for the third season have been released. However, fans can make estimations about the potential storylines for the third season based on the plot of Bardugo’s third and final novel, Ruin and Rising.

Published in 2014, the final novel shows Alina Starkov continuing on her quest to defeat the Darkling and bring peace to the land of Ravka. If the plot for Season 3 stays true to the third book, we can expect Alina and her band of allies to continue their journey to find the third amplifier, which they believe will give Alina the power she needs to defeat the Darkling. However, as our protagonists go deeper into enemy territory, they will also face unexpected challenges and betrayals that threaten to tear them apart.

As of now, Shadow and Bone has not been renewed by Netflix for a third season. Although, the amount of buzz the second season is already generating can make fans hopeful about the show’s renewal. In an interview with Collider, writer and executive producer Eric Heisserer mentioned that they always had a three-season plan for the show, with author Bardugo adding that she would love to see the fantasy drama get renewed for another five seasons.

So to sum up, it looks like fans might have to wait a bit to know more about the upcoming season. In other news, Heisserer also revealed to Entertainment Weekly that he’s been quietly working to develop a Six of Crows spin-off. He went on to confirm that a part of the spin-off would take place during the events of Shadow and Bone‘s season 2 finale. As of now, plans for the spin-off are in the early stages and it remains to be seen if Netflix actually picks it up.
