Netflix preps Shadow & Bone fantasy series

SVoD giant Netflix has ordered an eight-episode series based on the bestselling fantasy novels Shadow & Bone and Six of Crows.

Leigh Bardugo

Shadow & Bone will bring together stories and characters from the two works by author Leigh Bardugo.

Set in Bardugo’s fictional Grishaverse, a world divided by a barrier of perpetual darkness where creatures gorge on human flesh, a younger soldier uncovers a power that might unite her country. As she strives to control her new abilities, dark forces plot against her.

Bardugo’s Grishaverse novels have sold more than 2.5 million copies worldwide in the English language alone and have been translated into 38 other languages. A new instalment, King of Scars, comes out this month.

Eric Heisserer

The series is created and written by Eric Heisserer, who penned Netflix’s hit original film Bird Box, and is produced by Netflix and US firm 21 Laps, creator of the streamer’s sci-fi hit Stranger Things.

Heisserer will be showrunner and exec producer alongside Bardugo, Pouya Shahbazian from New Leaf Literary & Media and 21 Laps’ Shawn Levy, Dan Levine, Dan Cohen and Josh Barry.
