Get ready for a wave of fantasy coming to the Netflix streaming platform.  A new series based and adapted from on the Grisha trilogy “Shadow & Bone” by author Leigh Bardugo.

The stories are based on Russian folklore and follows the young orphan, Alina Starkov, played by Jessie Mei Li, who discovers something big.  She finds out that she is a Grisha, which is the rare ability to manipulate the elements. Set in the Kingdom of Ravka.  Other young actors that will be cast include: Ben Barnes as General Kirigan, Kit Young as Jesper Fahey, Amita Suman as Inej Ghafa, Freddy Carter as Kat Brekker and many others. 

Netflix describes the series: 

“Sinister forces plot against a young soldier when she reveals a magical power that might unite her world”. 


The teaser trailer dropped late last year and is set for release this spring, currently for April 23, 2021. The first part of the series (Season 1) will include 8 1-hour long episodes.

Enter the Grishaverse with Book One of the Shadow and Bone Trilogy by the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom.

Soldier. Summoner. Saint. Orphaned and expendable, Alina Starkov is a soldier who knows she may not survive her first trek across the Shadow Fold―a swath of unnatural darkness crawling with monsters. But when her regiment is attacked, Alina unleashes dormant magic not even she knew she possessed.

Now Alina will enter a lavish world of royalty and intrigue as she trains with the Grisha, her country’s magical military elite―and falls under the spell of their notorious leader, the Darkling. He believes Alina can summon a force capable of destroying the Shadow Fold and reuniting their war-ravaged country, but only if she can master her untamed gift.

As the threat to the kingdom mounts and Alina unlocks the secrets of her past, she will make a dangerous discovery that could threaten all she loves and the very future of a nation. 

Welcome to Ravka . . . a world of science and superstition where nothing is what it seems.
