Netflix has set the cast of its adaptation of Shadow and Bone.

Based on Leigh Bardugo’s best selling fantasy novels, the eight part series is set to star Ben Barnes (Westworld) as General Kirigan, Freddy Carter (Pennyworth) as Kaz Brekker , Jessie Mei Li (Last Night in SoHo) as Alina Starkov, Archie Renaux (Voyagers) as Malyen Oretsev, Amita Suman (The Outpost) as Inej, and Kit Young (Endeavour) as Jesper Fahey. 

“I was so wary going into this process because these characters have lived in my head for so long,” Bardugo explained. “Turns out I had nothing to fear. Watching these actors begin to inhabit these roles has been pure magic,” she added. 

The eight part adaptation is Bird Box scribe Eric Heisserer. Bardugo will also serve as executive producer.
