SHADOWHUNTERS at NYCC: Showrunners Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer

Meet the new showrunners behind SHADOWHUNTERS Season 2, Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer!

We can’t speak over everyone who went to the New York Comic Con panel for Shadowhunters or watched the previews released since, but we found ourselves very, very pleased with new showrunners Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer, who stepped in after Ed Decter left the show.

These two seem be in on a path to make the show darker, edgier, and more cinematic than ever before, all while focusing in on building character relationships.

After the New York Comic Con press event for Shadowhunters ran long, Todd and Darren were gracious enough to briefly chat with us in the hall of the press area, where they answered some big questions about the tone and show structure as well as Magnus and Alec’s first date and when we’ll be the Seelie Court!

This video contains a brief cameo from Cassandra Clare (who we unfortunately missed because she had to leave right after the press time) and the showrunners’ very good friend Jeph Loeb, the head of Marvel Television.

We’ll be releasing big cast interviews throughout the day so stay tuned or subscribe to our YouTube channel!

Shadowhunters returns to Freeform on January 2, 2017.
