Are you ready to brave the darkness and enter the Fold? Your first Shadow & Bone trailer is here!

Check it out below.

Though Netflix previously released a stag teaser and some first look photos, this is our first real look at the Grishaverse in action. Fans of Leigh Bardugo’s books will note the trailer teases quite a few big moments. We see Alina and Mal first enter the Shadow Fold, and the Darkling discovering Alina’s power. We also get a look at some of the Crows in action.

Based on the trailer, the series looks impressive. Netflix hasn’t skimped on this one: from the costumes and music to the special effects, it looks like this will be one hell of a show. As a fan of the Bardugo books the Shadow & Bone series is based on, I’m definitely excited to see the Grishaverse come to life.

Along with the trailer, Netflix also dropped some new images, giving us a deeper look at the world and spotlighting some characters we hadn’t seen much of yet. Check them out below.

And if you’re new to Shadow & Bone, here’s the official series description from Netflix:

Shadow and Bone finds us in a war-torn world. Lowly soldier and orphan Alina Starkov has just unleashed an extraordinary power that could be the key to setting her country free. With the monstrous threat of the Shadow Fold looming, Alina is torn from everything she knows to train as part of an elite army of magical soldiers known as Grisha. But as she struggles to hone her power, she finds that allies and enemies can be one and the same and that nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. There are dangerous forces at play, including a crew of charismatic criminals, and it will take more than magic to survive.

Shadow & Bone premieres April 23 on Netflix.
