Netflix has greenlighted Shadow and Bone, an eight-episode series based on Leigh Bardugo’s bestselling Shadow and Bone and Six of Crows Grishaverse fantasy novels, from Eric Heisserer, writer of Netflix’s smash hit feature Bird Box, and Shawn Levy, executive producer of the Internet network’s mega hit series Stranger Things. The project falls under the Netflix overall deal for Levy’s 21 Laps. Bardugo also serves as an executive producer on the show, produced by Netflix. Pouya Shahbazian (the Divergent series) also serves as an executive producer alongside Bardugo as well as Shawn Levy, Dan Levine, Dan Cohen and Josh Barry for 21 Laps.

Created, written and executive produced by Heisserer, who also will showrun, Shadow and Bone brings together the stories and characters of both Shadow and Bone and Six of Crows, two overlapping series that take place in Bardugo’s Grishaverse. In a world cleaved in two by a massive barrier of perpetual darkness, where unnatural creatures feast on human flesh, a young soldier uncovers a power that might finally unite her country. But as she struggles to hone her power, dangerous forces plot against her. Thugs, thieves, assassins and saints are at war now, and it will take more than magic to survive.

With over 2.5 million copies sold in the English language alone, Bardugo’s Grishaverse books have been translated into 38 languages around the world to date. A new installment of the Grishaverse, King of Scars, comes out later this month.

Netflix has set the cast for its eight-part adaptation of Leigh Bardugo’s bestselling Shadow and Bone and Six of Crows Grishaverse fantasy novels, from Eric Heisserer, writer of Netflix’s smash hit feature Bird Box. The story focuses on a young soldier who uncovers a power that might finally unite her country. But as she struggles to hone her power, dangerous forces plot against her. Thugs, thieves, assassins and saints are at all at war, and it will take more than magic to survive.

Jessie Mei Li will play the orphan soldier Alina Starkov on the 21 Laps Entertainment-produced series. Westworld and The Punisher actor Ben Barnes will play General Kirigan, the commander of a magical military elite in Bardugo’s fantasy world. Other series regulars include Doctor Who actress Amita Suman and Pennyworth‘s Freddy Carter — who play fellow gang members in a criminal underworld — Archie Renaux (Voyagers, Gold Digger) and Kit Young (Endeavour). The cast also include Sujaya Dasgupta (Press, Guilt), Danielle Galligan (Game of Thrones, Krypton), Daisy Head (Harlots, Guilt) and Simon Sears (Winter Brothers).

Executive producer Bardugo said: “I was so wary going into this process because these characters have lived in my head for so long. Turns out I had nothing to fear. Watching these actors begin to inhabit these roles has been pure magic.”
