Grim news has reached us via Variety that Freeform has decided to cancel its surprisingly enjoyable supernatural drama series, Shadowhunters. There’ll be a special two-hour series finale at the end of season 3 to wrap things up for us, which is something we suppose.
“We are very proud of Shadowhunters, a series that broke new ground in the genre world and became a fan favourite,” remarked the network a statement. “However, along with our partners at Constantin, we reached the very difficult decision not to renew the show for a fourth season. But as big supporters and fans ourselves, Freeform insisted on and championed the filming of a special two-part finale that would give devoted fans a proper ending. The twelve episodes will air in spring of 2019. We want to thank our talented creators, producers, cast and crew along with our colleagues at Constantin for their hard work and dedication and to Cassie Clare for her incredible book series. We look forward to the final chapter of this breakthrough drama.”
As mentioned in the statement above, we still have a decent-sized block of Shadowhunters – which is inspired by Cassie Clare’s Mortal Instruments book series – yet to come next year, as the 12 brand new episodes that make up the second half of season 3 have yet to air.
More on this if we get it.
