Be ready to step into the Grishaverse once again as Netflix’s Shadow and Bone has wrapped up the filming of its second season.
On Thursday, June 9, 2022, actress Amita Suman, who plays Inej Ghafa, took to her Instagram handle to share multiple snaps alongside her fellow co-stars on the show and announce that the filming for season 2 has officially completed.
Captioning those memorable pictures, she wrote, “That’s a [wrap] on season [two] of #shadowandbone. A thousand memories, moments, up’s and downs, unforgettable and blurry times. Looking forward to a million more with my gang, my fam.”
Similarly, more photos were posted by actor Freddy Carter, who plays the role of Kaz Brekker. And all of those pictures were ultimately shared by Netflix Geeked’s Instagram handle. They wrote, “congrats to the lights of my life, the @shadowandbone cast, on a wrap on what is sure to be an amazing season 2.”
Shadow and Bone season one premiered on the global streaming service on April 23, 2021, and fans were instantly hooked up with it. And it was instantly renewed for a second season on June 7, 2021, during Netflix’s Geeked Week.
When season 2 was confirmed, showrunner Eric Heisserer jokingly said, “I’m honored and thrilled to return to the Grishaverse and continue the stories of these endearing characters, particularly Milo.”
Afterward, there were a few but not many updates on the second season. However, that has since been changed as multiple new updates on the show have been coming around for the past few weeks. Here is what we know about Shadow and Bone season 2!
Meet the new cast members on Shadow and Bone season 2
In season one of Shadow and Bone, we got introduced to some talented actors who play some amazing roles. And it is expected that almost all of the existing cast members are returning for season 2 as well.
The existing cast consists of Ben Barnes as General Kirigan, Jessie Mei Li as Alina Starkov, Freddy Carter as Kaz Brekker, Archie Renaux as Malyen Oretsev, Kit Young as Jesper Fahey, and Amita Suman as Inej Ghafa.
Similarly, the remaining cast is Zoë Wanamaker, Sujaya Dasgupta, Danielle Galligan, Calahan Skogman, Daisy Head, Kevin Eldon, Gabrielle Brooks, and Luke Pasqualino.

Now coming over to the new faces, the first one is Patrick Gibson who will play the role of Nikolai Lantsov. Speaking more of his character, he is an ally of Alina’s in the second book and a prince who hires soldiers and mercenaries to assist Ravka.
English actor Jack Wolfe is another new cast member to join Shadow and Bone season 2. He will be playing the role of Wylan Hendriks. His character is the son of a rich merchant who goes to join Crows as a chemist and demolition expert.
Furthermore, there is two more addition: Lewis Tan and Anna Leong Brophy. They will portray the roles of twins Tolya Yul-Battar and Tamar Kir-Bataar, respectively. While Tamar is a Grisha Heartrender, Tolya is a mercenary in Nikolai’s crew.
When will Shadow and Bone season 2 release?
As of this writing, Netflix is yet to confirm or announce the release date for Shadow and Bone season 2. Similarly, they are yet to release a teaser trailer or a full trailer.
One of the reasons behind it might be because the filming was just wrapped up recently. So, there is a lot of post-production work to be done – which obviously requires a lot of time.
And until some work has been done, Netflix might take some time to officially announce the release date as well as release some footage as a teaser or trailer.
The filming of the second season was first expected to start in December 2021 but due to some unknown reasons, the production only started on January 13, 2022. And with the filming being completed in June 2022, it might take around six months for post-production works.
To conclude, fans of Shadow and Bone might have to wait until December 2022 or early 2023 to binge-watch the second season. And that also will only be possible if everything works out smoothly.
Shadow and Bone season 2 synopsis
For those searching if there is a synopsis for Shadow and Bone season 2, unfortunately, there isn’t – yet.
As there is no official release date or a trailer, Netflix also hasn’t released any synopsis for the second season. However, fans can expect that the story will continue from the ending of season one and will be based on other Grishaverse books.
Cast tease heartbreak on Shadow and Bone season 2
Although there haven’t been many revelations on the story of Shadow and Bone season 2, because of privacy and spoilers – the existing and new cast members of the show have teased there will be heartbreak in the second season. So, make sure to have tissues with you while watching the second season.
On Monday, June 6, 2022, the cast members delivered a special message and teased what’s coming in season 2 during Netflix’s Geeked Week. But, as they weren’t allowed to tease everything, they decided to describe the second season in three words.
Newcomer Lewis Tan said, “Heartrending, heart-pounding, swashbuckling.” Archie Renaux also had similar words as he said, “Love, power, heartbreak.” Likewise, Jessie Mei Li said, “Full of love.”
Ben Barnes also stepped into the game as he said, “bigger, bolder, and badder.” On the other hand, Freddy Carter described the new season as “Action-packed, epic, and Crowtastic.”
Furthermore, when the cast was asked to describe their characters in the second season in one word, newcomer Jack Wolfe used the word, “Underestimated.”
Danielle Galligan described his character by saying, “It’s got to be #guilty.” Barnes and Anna Leong Brophy also joined in the game as they used the words “angry” and “fierce,” respectively. “Traumatised, but also the best?” were the words used by Freddy Carter.
Jessica Barden on Feeling Insecure about Her Teeth and Acne
Jessica Barden struggled with her teeth insecurities.
English actress Jessica Barden is well-known for her role as Alyssa in the Channel 4 comedy-drama The End of the F***ing World.
Barden made her acting debut in 1999 in an episode of the CITV series My Parents Are Aliens. She later appeared in episodes of the shows No Angels and The Chase.
Some of her well-known films include Habit, Scarborough, Jungleland, and many more. Similarly, Barden has appeared in numerous television series such as Murder, Lambs of God, Robot Chicken, and others.
Barden most recently played Jane in the Netflix thriller Pieces of Her, an adaptation of Karin Slaughter’s novel of the same name, in 2022. She has upcoming roles in the ITV romantic comedy-drama You & Me and the football film Unsuitable Video Game.
The actress has received a lot of attention throughout her more than two-decade career. Even though she has been in the entertainment industry for a long time, she was insecure about her teeth and acne.
Jessica Barden struggled with her teeth insecurities
As Barden is a public figure, many of her followers noticed her imperfect teeth in addition to her exceptional acting ability.
Previously, the actress would hide her teeth out of fear of being seen in public, but she now embraces her natural teeth. On July 28, 2020, Barden shared a photo of herself smiling and showing her teeth. “#challengeaccepted and I did a full teeth smile picture,” she wrote in the caption.
However, people still continue to point out her teeth. While Barden’s new film Pieces of Her was released, some Reddit users felt that her character didn’t work and discussed her teeth. One person wrote, “Jessica Barden is a very capable actress but I thought she was dreadful in this …she struggled with the accent, very stilted. Genuine question did she have false teeth in?”
How Jessica Barden overcame adult acne?
Barden has had acne since she was 17. The actress told Vogue about her experience with acne and being a public figure.
She said, “It was really embarrassing and painful. I remember when we went to Milan Fashion Week with Gucci and my skin was really bad around that time. The make-up artists were so nice, but they were presuming I was 16 or 17 instead of 25, which made me feel really self-conscious because you don’t feel like you’re a grown-up.”

Barden added, “On the whole, everybody has been so kind to me. My agents have never made a thing about it which I’m so grateful for. But there were a few times on set where I would hear people saying they’d have to do some kind of CGI on my skin, and you just feel bad.”
The actress also revealed that she had spent lots of money on skincare. She believed that her skin problem was related to her anxiety because when she was stressed, her hormones went crazy, resulting in acne.
Realizing that, she began to meditate, cut back on caffeine, and exercise daily, which helped her acne. More than that, Barden has accepted her natural beauty and feels comfortable in her skin, regardless of what others say.
Alana Haim and Jimmy Fallon’s Cheating Rumor Explained
Inside Alana Haim and Jimmy Fallon’s cheating rumors.
The famous musician and actress Alana Haim and the talk show star Jimmy Fallon are rumored to be sleeping together.
Haim is a member of the Indie pop rock band Haim, along with her sisters Este and Danielle. The band formed in 2006 and has released various successful albums, such as Days Are Gone in 2013 and Women in Music Pt. III in 2002.
Similarly, apart from being a television host, Fallon is also a comedian, actor, and writer. He is currently the anchor of The Tonight Show, Starring Jimmy Fallon.
The 33-year-old musician has been part of Fallon’s talk show many times. Is there any possibility that these two are sneaking out with each other? Fallon is a married man; is he cheating on his wife?
How did the rumor start?
The rumor began when the gossip queen Kyle Marisa Roth talked about it in one of her TikTok videos. In the video, she regarded gossip, as per her, the “blind item,” which she was going to reveal was so spicy that she put her fireball aside.
“Speaking of cheating, one of the members of this all-female band is sleeping with a married late-night talk show host,” she exposed, “That is Jimmy Fallon, and whoo! Alana Hiam.”
While going through the video’s comment section, some fans were stunned. One of the TikTok users commented, “Nnoooooo! I am so naïve and must live in a tiny bubble. I always thought he was so great 🥺 tell me it’s not true.”
Some users didn’t believe the news, while a few connected Fallon’s rumors with Ariana Grande. One of them commented, “there was a rumor him and Ariana were sleeping together at one point too.”
Even on Twitter, one of the fans tweeted, “The thought of Alana Haim and Jimmy Fallon is making me physically nauseous please don’t be true.”
While this rumor is circulating, one of the fans asked about Haim and Fallon in the Q&A session by deuxmoi on January 24.
The Instagram gossip page with 1.7 M followers had invited its followers by stating, “what’s the hot gossip lets discuss…,” in the session to which a fan had asked, “Alana Haim/ Jimmy Fallon???? Not real right?”

The fan certainly meant the rumors between Fallon and Haim, to which the deuxmoi wrote, “NOT REAL CONFIRMED,” and posted in its story.
Thus, the rumor was falsified, and it eventually died with the statement of the gossip page, which must have relieved Haim and Fallon, a married man.
Who is Jimmy Fallon married to?
Fallon is married to his wife, Nancy Juvonen, and they are parents to daughters Winnie and Franny. Juvonen is a film producer, and she was married to her husband on December 22, 2007.
Fallon and Juvonen met on Saturday Night Live. Later their romance began when the two worked together on the 2005 rom-com Fever Pitch. Afterward, while promoting the film, they actually started dating officially.
Juvonen revealed the secret of their long-lasting relationship. She said, “I think keep your sense of humor. And I think keep some independence. Neither of you should be so reliant on the other.”
Alana Haim talks about her first love
Haim spoke about her first love in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar. She confessed it was sad reflecting on her deeply intense first romantic love, and she admitted she’ll never feel the same way again as people up walls after their first love.
“I feel like that first love is just so deeply intense. The first cut is the deepest. You never have a love like that again. That’s a thing that’s kind of sad about it,” she said, “Once you have that first love that cuts you so deeply, you never will feel that deeply ever again.”
When asked about the current love, she elaborated that he has to be okay with me constantly being on the road, constantly touring.
‘The Wire’ singer added, ‘That’s the hardest thing. I mean, I’m always gone.” She showed her love for traveling, saying, “The road is my husband, my boyfriend, my everything.”
