Helmed by Eric Heisserer, who also served as showrunner for the first season, the second season will have Daegan Fryklind as the showrunner. Degan will also write and executive produce the show. The second season will feature Jessie Mei Li, Ben Barnes, Archie Renaux, Freddy Carter, Amita Suman, Kit Young, Danielle Galligan, among others, in addition to new characters.
Speaking about adapting the novel to the series, author Leigh Bardugo was quoted as saying as per Collider report, “This season I was able to step back and put the show more firmly in their hands. Readers are not only going to be surprised by the way that these storylines crash into each other, they’re never going to know where the next move is coming from—and that actually was a pleasure for me because I got to be surprised by my own stories.”
