Netflix’s Shadow And Bone: 13 differences between the show and books
The much-awaited first season of Shadow and Bone dropped on Netflix today [April 23] and fans around the world have been binging it non-stop, curious to see how the series managed to portray their favourite characters.
The source material for the show isn’t just the eponymous Shadow and Bone book trilogy, but also the Six of Crows duology by author Leigh Bardugo. Showrunner Eric Heisserer (Arrival, Birdbox) thought it would be best to weave the two stories together, creating a surprisingly seamless narrative that flows perfectly without altering the core of the Grishaverse.
While Netflix’s Shadow and Bone is a pretty faithful adaptation in terms of main events and characterisation, there are some changes to the plot that inevitably had to happen when unifying the two series and transposing them to the screen. Here are 13 differences between the Grishaverse books and the TV show.
