Netflix is Bringing the Grishaverse to the Small Screen!

Netflix has ordered an eight-episode adaptation inspired by not one, but two Leigh Bardugo books: Shadow and Bone and Six of Crows!

That’s right, we’re getting two book adaptations all wrapped up in one show. Or as the author of the books put it way better than we ever could:

The series will be created, written and executive produced by Eric Heisserer, who wrote the recent Netflix adaptation of Josh Malerman’s Bird Box.

Gushed Bardugo on her Twitter account of Heisserer and co-writer Christina Strain (who also writes for SyFy’s The Magicians adaptation):

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.
