Netflix has slated an official premiere date for Eric Heisserer’s new series Shadow And Bone, inspired by Leigh Bardugo’s bestselling Grishaverse novels.

Set to bow on the streamer starting on April 23, Shadow And Bone takes place in a war-torn world where lowly soldier and orphan Alina Starkov has just unleashed an extraordinary power that could be the key to setting her country free. With the monstrous threat of the Shadow Fold looming, Alina is torn from everything she knows to train as part of an elite army of magical soldiers known as Grisha. But as she struggles to hone her power, she finds that allies and enemies can be one and the same and that nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. There are dangerous forces at play, including a crew of charismatic criminals, and it will take more than magic to survive.
