Freeform’s “Shadowhunters” is coming to an end after this season, but the network will never forget the fans that made the show such a success. To celebrate the viewers, the followers, the retweeters, and the cosplayers, Freeform unveiled a special bench in New York City’s Central Park today. Stars Katherine McNamara, Harry Shum Jr., Matthew Daddario, and Emeraude Toubia attended the event, looking just as beautiful as ever.
Freeform and the series dedicated the bench to the Shadowhunter fandom that has strongly supported the show during its three seasons. The plaque reads:
A seat for every person, creature, and legend to share love, acceptance and equality. Love, Shadowhunters Family / Freeform.
The event also serves as a reminder that “Shadowhunters” premieres its final season tonight on Freeform.
The popular series is based on the bestselling young adult fantasy book series “The Mortal Instruments” by Cassandra Clare. The story follows 18-year-old Clary Fray, who finds out on her birthday that she is not who she thinks she is but rather comes from a long line of Shadowhunters – human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons. When her mother Jocelyn is kidnapped, Clary is thrown into the world of demon hunting with mysterious Shadowhunter Jace and her best friend, Simon. Now living among faeries, warlocks, vampires and werewolves, Clary begins a journey of self-discovery as she learns more about her past and what her future may hold.
While “Shadowhunters” is coming to a close, Freeform has stoked up on YA dramas. Viewers currently have “Siren,” “The Bold Type,” and the wildly popular new series “Good Trouble” to binge, and new shows like “Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists,” “Besties,” and “Party Girls” are on the way. Keep that Freeform app updated, because there is also “National Parker,” and the big “Party of Five” reboot on the horizon.
Freeform is also the home to hits like “Alone Together,” “grown-ish,” and “Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger.”
