Shadowhunters Cast Surprises Fans with a Second Season Pick-Up Announcement

Freeform announced today that the hit original saga series Shadowhunters will return for a Second Season, via a Facebook Live chat with the cast. The first saga series for the network, Shadowhunters is currently airing TUESDAYS at 9:00 – 10:00 PM EST. The season one finale will air on Tuesday, April 5.

Based on the bestselling young adult fantasy book series ‘The Mortal Instruments’ by Cassandra Clare, Shadowhunters follows Clary Fray, who finds out on her birthday that she is not who she thinks she is, but rather comes from a long line of Shadowhunters – human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons. Now thrown into the world of demon hunting after her mother is kidnapped, Clary must rely on the mysterious Jace and his fellow Shadowhunters Isabelle and Alec to navigate this new dark world. With her best friend, Simon, in tow, Clary must now live among faeries, warlocks, vampires and werewolves to find answers that could help her find her mother.

Nothing is as it seems, including her close family friend Luke, who turned out to be a werewolf, as well as the enigmatic warlock Magnus Bane, who has surprisingly become an ally in the search for Clary’s past.

Shadowhunters launched as Freeform’s #2 series premiere on record in Adults 18-49 (1.6 million) and Adults 25-54 (1.4 million) and its #1 series launch of all time in Men 18-49 and Men 25-54 and #3 launch on record in Total Viewers (2.9 million). Shadowhunters is also a social media powerhouse with the series being, season–to-date, the #4 most engaging scripted series overall across all TV with over 17.7 million engagements, well ahead of established series such as “Arrow” (5.4 million), “The Flash” (6.9 million), “Vampire Diaries” (3.9 million) and “The Originals” (2.6 million). Likewise, the series outperforms newer fantasy series including “Supergirl” (2.8 million), “Legends of Tomorrow” (4.5 million) and “The Shannara Chronicles” (3.8 million). Since the launch, Shadowhunters has amassed over 7.5 million long-form views, making it the network’s #2 series, behind only “Pretty Little Liars.”

Shadowhunters is produced by Constantin Film and executive-produced by Ed Decter and McG. The series stars Katherine McNamara as Clary Fray, Dominic Sherwood as Jace Wayland, Alberto Rosende as Simon, Emeraude Toubia as Isabelle Lightwood, Matthew Daddario as Alec Lightwood, Isaiah Mustafa as Luke Garroway, and Harry Shum Jr. as Magnus Bane.
