News & Interviews for Shadow and Bone: Season 1
If Shadow and Bone doesn't provide quite the level of characterizing nuance and challenging chronological complexity of The Witcher - and it does not - it does go down easier, and seems expressly intended to make long weekend afternoons pass more quickly.
[Shadow and Bone] transcends familiarity thanks to the commitment of a pitch-perfect cast, well-stylized fight sequences, and intentional character development that makes these relationships feel nuanced and history-laden.
Book readers and new arrivals alike will be pleased: Shadow and Bone is an eight-episode addiction that will give you exactly what you didn't know you needed and leave you wanting more.
