We’ve been waiting to hear this since San Diego Comic Con last year when it was announced that Jordan Kyle will be entering the show.
Entertainment Weekly is now confirming that Chai Hansen will be playing the role.
“Jordan comes into Simon’s life in a fun, unexpected way,” showrunners Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer tell EW. “The two instantly hit it off, but we soon find out there’s a lot more to Jordan than meets the eye, and repercussions that affect more than just Simon.”
While book fans know Jordan’s backstory and his (fraught) relationship with existing characters, let’s see how Jordan is adapted on screen and whether he’ll remain true to the book character!
Shadowhunters season 3 premieres a month earlier than the previously announced date: Tuesday, March 20th at 8/7c on Freeform.
Awake, Arise, Or Be Forever Fallen aired July 31 on Freeform.

In a lovely new project in the Shadowhunters Cards, Cassandra Clare posted a new card where Cassandra Jean depicted the characters of The Mortal Instruments series in the season of fall. Check it out in full by clicking on the image below:
Taking a break briefly from the tarot card project, I asked Cassandra Jean to draw the four seasons as the four Shadowhunter series I have either written or planned right now — The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices, the Dark Artifices, and The Mysterious TLH.
Here The Mortal Instruments takes the season of fall. From left: Maia, Simon and Isabelle, Sebastian (lurking darkly on a bench) Jace and Clary, Luke and Jocelyn, Alec and Magnus, and Jordan, all in Central Park on a fall day.
