SHADOWHUNTERS Cast Announces Season 2 Renewal

Love Freeform’s Shadowhunters, based on The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare? There’s good news!

The cast of Shadowhunters participated in a Facebook Live chat this morning including Katherine McNamara, Emeraude Toubia, Harry Shum Jr, Isaiah Mustafa, along with executive producers McG and Ed Decter, as well as Dominic Sherwood, Matthew Daddario, and Alberto Rosende doing some streaming inception via other cast members’ phones.

Here’s some fun facts from the show’s official renewal announcement:

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.

No word yet on when the second season air begin filming or premiere, but we’re certainly looking forward to it!
