‘Shadow and Bone’ character posters and set photos are finally here (and they’re incredible)

We’re finally getting a look at our favorite ‘Shadow and Bone’ characters.


We’re not very far off from Netflix’s take on Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse, but fans don’t have to wait to see the leading characters from ‘Shadow and Bone.’

Netflix shared the stunning posters on social media Wednesday morning, prepping viewers for the characters they should expect to meet when watching the series. Up until now, fans have been able to hear the show’s theme song and we were even treated to a teaser trailer some weeks ago, but Netflix has held back on offering fans a proper look at the actors in costume.

That wait’s finally over.

Meet the stars of the Grishaverse below:

Alina Starkov, A Mapmaker. But perhaps much more. (Netflix)
General Kirigan, Leader of the Grisha. Shadow Summoner. (Netflix)
Mal Oretsev, Tracker and rising star in the First Army. (Netflix)
Jesper Fahey, Sharpshooter. 100% charming 100% of the time. (Netflix)
Inej Ghafa, The Wraith. Beware of knives. (Netflix)
Kaz Brekker, Leader of the Crows. Always scheming. (Netflix)

The dark and moody ‘Shadow and Bone’ posters don’t offer a full view of the character’s faces, but their personalities shine through — from Jesper’s pistol’s to Inej’s knives.

But fans who want a clearer view of the characters are in luck as well. Entertainment Weekly also released several photos from the series on Wednesday — our first full look of the actors in character.

Check out some of the photos below:

We’re still waiting for a full trailer, which is bound to come sometime in the next couple of months.

‘Shadow and Bone’ will stream on Netflix starting April 23.
