Sad news, guys. Shadowhunters is canceled after three seasons. The show will wrap up with twelve more episodes and a two-hour series finale in 2019.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
“We are very proud of Shadowhunters, a series that broke new ground in the genre world and became a fan favorite,” the network said Monday in 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 12 episodes will air in spring 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.”
Here’s what the cast and crew said about the cancellation:
I’ve been a fan of these books for a long while, and seeing it come to life in both movie and TV format has been incredibly amazing for me as a fan. And I wanted to say that in today’s ever-changing media world, nothing is ever done. We got a lease of life after the movie. So who is to say the show won’t get picked up again by another network? Or a new adaptation if it comes down to it?
And reiterating, there’s still more Shadowhunters to come: the second half of season three will air in 2019.
