The Netflix Grishaverse is upon us! Since first premiering in April 2021, «Shadow and Bone» has become one of the streamer’s fantasy hits and its youthful cast quickly charmed viewers. Now, the show returns for its second season on March 16, picking up on some of the lingering events from season one.
Based on author Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha book saga, «Shadow and Bone» follows young Alina Starkov (Jessie Mei Li) as she discovers that she’s a legendary Sun Summoner who may be able to destroy an expanse of darkness called the Fold. One of the biggest names in the cast might just be Ben Barnes, who’s known for his roles in the Chronicles of Narnia films, Netflix’s «The Punisher,» and «Westworld.» But for the most part, the ensemble mainly consists of new talent on the rise, including Li in the lead role as Alina and Archie Renaux as Alina’s best friend, Mal.
These young actors have plenty of exciting projects in the works, so if you’re wondering how you can keep up with their latest shows and movies, scroll ahead to find their social media handles!
