If you’ve ever wanted to get a glimpse of what everyday life looks like outside of Dark Canyon, then this is your chance! Netflix shared a couple of official behind-the-scenes photos showing the cast Shadow and bone on the set of the second season of the show. Archie Renault, Ben Barnes And Amita Suman some of the actors seen in the portraits look like something straight out of a school photo. Of course, the hunt for the Sun Summoner is much more dangerous than a school portrait, and its protagonists are about to find out why.

After the events of the first season, Alina (Jessie May Lee) and Mal (Reno) on the run, hiding from anyone who hunts for Ravka’s last hope. While eluding their enemies, Alina and Mal follow a path of collision to meet the return of the Darkling (Barnes). The evil Shadow Summoner survived his apparent demise from the latest installment, and he’s determined to get his revenge. The effects of the previous battle are forever marked on Kirigan’s face, as the character received his own set of scars from the bad guys. With his menacing new look, the Darkling is ready to plunge Grisha’s universe into chaos.


At the beginning of the new series, Alina is separated from the Crows – Kaz (Freddie Carter), Inej (Suman) and Kit (Jesper Fahey) – who now have to answer to the people who hired them to kidnap the protagonist in the first place. This will prove to be a difficult task, as the Sturmhond (Patrick Gibson) is a pirate who does not like to make excuses. The crew will have to use their characteristic cunning abilities to get out of the predicament.
