Netflix has greenlighted Shadow and Bone, an eight-episode series based on Leigh Bardugo's bestselling Grishaverse novels Shadow and Bone and Six of Crows, Deadline reported. The project is from Eric Heisserer, writer of Netflix's recent hit Bird Box, and Shawn Levy, executive producer of Stranger Things.
Created, written and executive produced by Heisserer, who will also serve as showrunner, Shadow and Bone brings together the stories and characters of both novels. Deadline noted that more than 2.5 million copies have been sold in English and that Bardugo's Grishaverse books have been translated into 38 languages. A new installment, King of Scars, will be released later this month.
