Folks in Budapest right now must have the most fun like you can just walk down a corner and go “oh there’s Jessie and Jack having lunch together” or just vibing at the park and say “oh there's Ben freaking Barnes recording a poem”. Meet Cal on a midnight walk, stumble upon the whole cast at a bar........
it cracks me up that the group cast photo makes it look like half the people rolled out of bed, and the other half were told to come lowkey in character... and then there's sujaya dasgupta in her bright shirt and beautiful hair just giving it her best vibes
✨Bright and best vibes to kick off the filming of the new season✨
I like to believe that the photoshoot is just for the new cast but the others were hanging nearby rehearsing lines and thats how we get the group pic.
A can we just- extremely deep in character like it's just a group shot bruh Sujaya's wearing bright red and Jessie's in her jammies and slippers over there.
ALSO can we just- look at Amita, she could just stand anywhere and look like she's modelling for Vogue. What a queen.
Yep. I was shocked when THR reported it (and since other news handles has already reported it there has been no correction on the producers side I guess the article is true?) that was. I assumed that they have more budget and manpower this time round with the success of S1. Now that @trishadegalantes brought Digital Effects and labour exploitation to light it’s........very concerning now.
Another calculation that I missed is that the score took 11 months to finish...😶
Can Shadow and Bone S2 release this year? Here’s how.
I’m gonna compare the show with the Witcher bc i think it’s similar in terms of number of episodes and special effects.
The Witcher S2
Filming - Febuary 2020
Wrap - April 2021 (14 months of filming, slowed by pandemic)
Air date -> December 2021
Ignoring filming and wrap, Witcher S2 had roughly six-seven months of Post Production before releasing on December. And they didn’t say that they wanted to air it in December at first, the goal was to release it in Q4 of 2021.
Shadow and Bone Season 1
Filming - October 2019
Wrap - February 2020 (5 months of filming total for 8 episodes)
Air Date -> April 2021
Remember that Shadow and Bone was initially set to air at the end of 2020? Yeah, Post Production slowed down in June ‘21 due to covid.
So let’s say, they need 5 months to film the show like the first season, and 6 months for Post like The Witcher;
Shadow and Bone Season 2 PREDICTION
Filming - January 2022
Wrap - May 2022 (5 months filming)
Post Production Ends - November 2022
Air Date - > December 2022
They can make it. it’s a bit tight though.
In conclusion, is it possible? Yes, if they really want to have a Q4 2022 release and if they’re on schedule.
Could I be wrong? Also possible. Once you’re in the clownverse you can’t really leave XD
Anyone from the industry or is familiar with Netflix’s filming guidelines are welcome to add in or judge. I am merely an observer.
