‘Shadowhunters’ Renewed for Season 3 at Freeform

Shadowhunters” has been renewed for Season 3 ahead of the return of Season 2 on June 5.

The cast of the Freeform series announced the renewal during a Facebook Live Q&A on Friday as part of the network’s upfronts presentation. They will return for a 20-episode third season in 2018.

Inspired by “The Mortal Instruments” series by Cassandra Clare, “Shadowhunters” is produced by Constantin Film and executive produced by Todd Slavkin, Darren Swimmer, McG, Michael Reisz, Matt Hastings, Mary Viola, Martin Moszkowicz, and Robert Kulzer. It stars Katherine McNamara as Clary Fray, Dominic Sherwood as Jace Wayland, Alberto Rosende as Simon Lewis, Emeraude Toubia as Isabelle Lightwood, Matthew Daddario as Alec Lightwood, Isaiah Mustafa as Luke Garroway, and Harry Shum Jr. as Magnus Bane.

The second half of Season 2 will pick up with the Shadowhunters and Downworlders reeling from what happened at the New York Institute in the winter finale. As the rift between the two sides grows larger, the team and their Downworld friends and lovers are put in the middle of the divide.

Back in January, Freeform announced that “Game of Thrones” and “Humans” alum Will Tudor will join the series as Sebastian, a new Shadowhunter. Sebastian joins the New York Institute from a foreign Institute after he befriends one of the show’s main characters. Sebastian is described as charming, brilliant, and profoundly educated, making him and his unrivaled fighting abilities a real boon to the existing Shadowhunter team.

The series has performed well for the network, with Season 2 thus far averaging a 0.3 rating in adults 18-49 and 700,000 viewers per episode, making it one of the network’s highest rated originals.
