Fans have been loving the return of the Netflix adaptation of Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse and are already talking about a third season!
Since season two dropped earlier this month, fans have been buzzing about the possibilities for season three, especially with the way Eric Heisserer has been mashing up all of Leigh Bardugo’s books to adapt them for the screen.
Fans especially have theories about Mal and Alina’s arc since the end of season two had them parting ways on uncertain terms, with Alina staying in Ravka and Mal taking over Nikolai’s role as privateer.
can you imagine shadow and bone s3 alina corruption arc and mal comes back to bring her back to herself. like “alina it’s me look at me i choose you you’re my true north”

Some ships that only got teased on screen in season two, fans are expecting to see more of in season three.

Season two further developed Kaz’s storyline with flashbacks into his childhood and his rivalry with Pekka. Fans also want to see their other faves’ backstories in the next season.
apparently an unpopular opinion but i trust the shadow and bone writers to explore inej’s trauma in s3. if it had been in this season people would’ve complained it was rushed and you can only do so many flashbacks of sex trafficking and assault before audiences become overwhelmed

Since the end of the second season sets up the plot line from the Six of Crows, fans are excited to see that story arc from the beloved book set up on the screen. There is a lot of debate online about whether or not it will be a spinoff show or a season three, but fans will be happy as long as fans get to see their characters return.
I kinda enjoyed Shadow & Bone S2. I will be seated for S3 or the SOC-spinoff, whichever one survives to make the official announcement pic.twitter.com/gJkfFExn4Z

With such a successful second season and so many possibilities for the third, it’s easy to see why fans can’t wait for more of the show. While there hasn’t been a renewal for season three yet, hopefully, we don’t have to wait another two years to get more of our favorite characters!
Now to get no rest for months until we know if Shadow and Bone S3 and/or SoC spin-off is happening or not so I can either die or die
