Celebrate Shadowhunters fans!

The series has been renewed by Freeform for a second season. The news came today via the cast during a Facebook live chat.

Shadowhunters launched as Freeform’s #2 series premiere on record and it’s coming back for more! reads the attached press release from Freeform.

Shadowhunters is also a social media powerhouse with the series being, season–to-date, the #4 most engaging scripted series overall across all TV with over 17.7 million engagements, well ahead of established series such as Arrow (5.4 million), The Flash (6.9 million), Vampire Diaries (3.9 million) and The Originals (2.6 million).

Likewise, the series outperforms newer Fantasy series including Supergirl(2.8 million), Legends of Tomorrow (4.5 million) and The Shannara Chronicles (3.8 million).

Since the launch, Shadowhunters has amassed over 7.5 million long-form views, making it the network’s #2 series, behind only Pretty Little Liars.

Shadowhunters follows 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.

Now thrown into the world of demon hunting after her mother is kidnapped, Clary must rely on the mysterious Jace and his fellow Shadowhunters Isabelle and Alec to navigate this new dark world. With her best friend, Simon, in tow, Clary must now live among faeries, warlocks, vampires and werewolves to find answers that could help her find her mother.
