Back in June we learned that “Shadowhunters” would be ending on Freeform. It was a surprise to fans, as the show was a consistent performer on the network. We haven’t heard much about the final episodes since the network announced the cancellation, but now fans can set a reminder to catch the final episodes when the show returns on February 25th.
“Shadowhunters” is set to end with the upcoming second half of season three, and there will be a gigantic two-episode special finale for fans to say goodbye to their favorite characters. Set to end in Spring 2019, all of all-new episodes will culminate in a two-hour series finale event to wrap up the tale of the Shadowhunters and Downworlders that have been expanding over the last three seasons.
When Freeform first announced that the series was ending, the network told fans, “We are very proud of Shadowhunters, a series that broke new ground in the genre world and became a fan favorite.” The network added, “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.”
The series itself was produced through Constantin Film and executive produced by Todd Slavkin, Darren Swimmer, McG, Matt Hastings, Mary Viola, Martin Moszkowicz and Robert Kulzer. The series 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, Alisha Wainwright as Maia Roberts and Harry Shum Jr. as Magnus Bane.
