In December, we got a teaser for Netflix’s upcoming Shadow & Bone series. It didn’t reveal much, but it was exciting to see anything bringing Leigh Bardugo’s books to life.
But now we’ve got a TON of first-look images from the series. Check them out below!
“Shadow and Bone takes place in a very different kind of fantasy world. Think Imperial Russia, not Medieval England, repeating rifles instead of broadswords,” said Bardugo. “These photos give just a tiny hint at what’s in store—a mapmaker with an extraordinary gift, the people who want to use her, the tracker who will do anything to protect her, and the team of thugs and thieves who are about to cause some very big trouble for everyone involved.”
Series showrunner Eric Heisserer also weighed in on the new images.
“These photos offer a glimpse into the expansive, textured world Leigh created in her books. We worked tirelessly to craft a lived-in feel for fictional lands like Ketterdam and Ravka, with invented languages, uniforms, currency, and artistic choices from set design to costuming. You’re immersed in the Grishaverse when you read, and it’s our hope that both new and existing fans have that same feeling when they watch the show.”
In addition to the first look images, Netflix also dropped six character posters. Check them out below!
Finally, Netflix dropped the official premiere date for Shadow & Bone. While the teaser let us know the series would premiere in April 2021, we now have the exact date.
Shadow & Bone hits Netflix April 23.
