As season one of Shadowhunters wraps up on Tuesday, April 5, Freeform is set to air a special on Friday, April 8 (10:30 PM – 11:00 PM ET). The cast will discuss the season and more in Superfan Suite: Shadowhunters.
During the special, the cast will give fans an inside look at what their favorite scenes were, behind-the-scenes secrets, a look into Isabelle’s fierce Shadowhunter fashion and what the cast hopes to see happen in season two. They will also participate in some fun games that will challenge their Shadowhunter knowledge, as well as read some fan tweets that have been collected throughout the season.
Participating cast and crew include Katherine McNamara, Dominic Sherwood, Harry Shum Jr., Alberto Rosende, Matthew Daddario, Emeraude Toubia and Isaiah Mustafa, as well as showrunner Ed Decter and executive producer McG.
Simon & Schuster’s online community, PulseIt, is getting a makeover. Now publisher neutral, the community is renamed Riveted and will launch officially in February – a very ABC Family to Freeform move.
One of the first campaigns Riveted is undertaking is the binge reading of The Mortal Instruments, right before the release of Lady Midnight, which fans can join in with the hashtag #TMIBingeRead.
Each week, starting January 22 through March 18, Riveted will be reading one book in the series. There will be trivia, giveaways and discussions on the Riveted YouTube channel.
In addition to the Binge-Read, there’s also #FlashbackFridays, where the history and tid-bits from the saga will be posted.
All in all, you get to read our favorite books along with fellow fans, and win some cool giveaways. So be sure to check out the official Binge-Read page and join in!
