It’s official. Shadowhunters is returning for a third season on Freeform.
The network announced the news today via a Facebook live interview with cast members from the Toronto-based set.
The series, which will return on June 5 with season 2b, is expected to air its third season in 2018.
This summer, with Shadowhunters and Downworlders reeling from what happened at the New York Institute in the winter finale, the rift between the two sides grows larger, and the team and their Downworld friends and lovers are put in the middle of the dangerous divide.
Torn between the Clave’s rules and what they feel is right, Clary, Jace, Alec and Isabelle struggle to help forge a new beginning.
Freeform teases that not only will relationships will be tested, but a new Shadowhunter named Sebastian will join the fray, and the Seelie Queen will step out of the shadows in the summer season.
Shadowhunters is produced by Constantin Film and executive produced by Todd Slavkin, Darren Swimmer, McG, Michael Reisz, 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 and Harry Shum Jr. as Magnus Bane.
