Shadow and Bone Author Leigh Bardugo spoke out on Instagram about the shocking cancellation of the Netflix series adaptation of her Grishaverse novels. In her post, she expressed her disappointment at the news and revealed that she was deeply affected. Despite this, she is still very grateful to the cast and crew for their work on the series and also thanks the fans who have supported her books and the show.
“The news hit me hard. I am heartbroken and deeply disappointed, but I am also trying to hold on to my real gratitude,” Bardugo wrote. “Most authors never get the opportunity to see their work adapted. Many who do end up regretting the experience. I am one of the very few who can look at an adaptation with pride and great joy. I am so grateful to our writers, our team, and our extraordinary cast, who are not only extremely talented, but truly good people. Most of all, I want to tell the people reading this how grateful I am, whether you found your way to the books first or discovered them through the show.”
“The Grishaverse is a better place because of you and I am so grateful for every tweet, post, comment, review, artwork, fic, tattoo and cosplay that helped make all of this possible. “ We are book people and that means we never stop imagining that magic can become reality. You are proof of that. Now I’m going to cry and then maybe have a drink and see where the story takes us next.”
After the Hollywood strikes ended, the streamer decided not to extend the successful fantasy drama for a third season. Before the cancellation, a spin-off series for “Shadow and Bone” was already in development at Netflix, which would revolve around Bardugo’s 2015 novel “Six of Crows”.
