The bittersweet return of “Shadowhunters” is just a few weeks away, and Freeform is reminding fans to catch up with the series before the final curtain comes to a close. As we learned last year, Freeform has decided against renewing “Shadowhunters” for another season. We also learned that the final episodes will have Luke Baines joining the cast as Jonathan Morgenstern. 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.
If you need to set a reminder, “Shadowhunters” is premiering a new episode on Freeform on February 25th. If you aren’t caught up, stop reading and hit the Freeform app to avoid some spoilers. You have a few weeks to binge through the series, and since it’s dark and cold in most of America, that shouldn’t be a problem with the right pizza and blanket.
In the midseason premiere, everyone is dealing with the loss of Clary and are trying to move on best they can. Unbeknownst to them, the Shadowhunters face a new level of evil that they can’t even imagine with the arrival of Jonathan Morgenstern, the true form of Clary’s brother. With the loss of Clary after Lilith’s apartment exploded, Alec, Isabelle, and Jace try to come to terms with what has happened. Glad to have their brother back, Alec and Isabelle are still worried about Jace, who is taking the actions of The Owl very hard. Magnus is also mourning the loss of his magic and finds himself in a new position—having to rely on others for help. Meanwhile, Maia tries to help a devastated Simon who has lost his family and his best friend, but unknown to everyone, Clary is alive and finds herself in a new and dangerous predicament.
The network released a quick promo of the new season earlier this month, which you can watch below if you missed it.
“Shadowhunters” is produced by Constantin Film and executive produced by Todd Slavkin, Darren Swimmer, McG, Matt Hastings, Mary Viola, Martin Moszkowicz and Robert Kulzer.
