A Netflix fantasy series, the Shadow and Bone TV show stars Jessie Mei Li, Archie Renaux, Freddy Carter, Amita Suman, Kit Young, and Ben Barnes.

*6/8/2021 update: Shadow and Bone has been renewed for a second season on Netflix.
I loved this new fantasy series on Netflix. The only bone I have to pick is the gratuitous sex scene. It’s not the homosexual part of it that bothered me, heck I’m bothered by explicit hetero sex scenes in any fantasy piece. To me, they detract from the story and degrade what should be a sacred and private act and don’t belong in an action/adventure genre.
