June 7 (UPI) -- Netflix announced Monday it has renewed its fantasy-drama, Shadow and Bone, for an eight-episode second season.
The show is based on Leigh Bardugo's Grishaverse novels.
"I've been writing in the Grishaverse for nearly 10 years now, so I'm thrilled we get to keep this adventure going," Bardugo said in a statement.
"There are so many places we've barely gotten to visit, and I can't wait to introduce our audience to more of the saints, soldiers, thugs, thieves, princes and privateers who make this world so much fun to explore.
"It's going to be real magic to see our brilliant, talented cast expand."
The Season 1 cast includes Jessie Mei Li (Alina Starkov), Archie Renaux (Malyen Oretsev), Freddy Carter (Kaz Brekker), Amita Suman (Inej), Kit Young (Jesper Fahey), Ben Barnes (General Kirigan), Danielle Galligan (Nina Zenik) and Calahan Skogman (Matthias Helvar.)
The stars are set to reprise their roles for Season 2 and additional casting details are expected to be shared at a later date.
Eric Heisserer is the showrunner.
