SHADOWHUNTERS Stars Take to Social Media to Pay Tribute to the Show

The cast and crew wrapped filming on this cult TV show a few days ago and have shared nothing but love and gratitude for the show and its fandom.

Despite a massive fan effort to Save Shadowhunters, signs still point to Shadowhunters coming to an end. The cast and crew wrapped up filming of a special finale episode a few days ago. After Freeform canceled the series earlier this summer, the time to start saying goodbye to these characters and the Shadow world is nigh.

As we fans prepare to say our goodbyes, so do the cast as they took to social media to reflect and pay tribute to their characters, the show, its crew and its fans. I hope you have tissues near. This post is about to get a bit sentimental and may result in a few wet eyes.


“How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.” – Winnie the Pooh. Truly, #Shadowhunters has been an angelic blessing. Playing Clary is an honor that has taught me more than I can express. She is strong, courageous, compassionate, badass, and broken, and I love every little imperfect piece of her. She will always be a part of me and I’d like to think I left a little part of me with her. Beyond that, the family created from the cast and crew, to the writers and producers, to you angels is something to be cherished. Being a part of a story that resonates for so many people and has a real positive influence on their lives is a rare gift and privilege that I will forever treasure. We have been breathing rarified air here in the Shadow World, whether or not we knew it. This experience is lightning in a bottle and I will spend the rest of my life trying to find it again. However, if you take anything with you from this, take this: the story doesn’t end here. It lives on and continues in all of us as we carry on the #ShadowhuntersLegacy as a group of people who stand for acceptance, love, and unity. Hail and farewell, angels. All my love . You know what they say… when one door closes… 🖤⚔️✨

We wrapped several hours ago for our final day on @Shadowhunters. It has been an honor to play this iconic character created by @cassieclare1 & I honestly didn’t anticipate the level of impact it would have on people all over the world. I consider it a privilege to work with this extremely special group of people. I am humbled by the love and dedication you have for these characters. I go to work everyday and do my best to fulfill my duty as an actor to transform into this fictional character that feels real, authentic and genuine. But most importantly, to provide you entertainment to forget all your woes for a little while. So proud of this cast and crew for what we accomplished in 55 episodes. I thought this would be a fun pic to share of my transition into MB and my transition out. Thank you to Ed Decter, Michael Reisz, Todd Slavkin, Darren Swimmer, Matt Hastings, FreeForm and Constantine for allowing me to play in this world. ✌🏼 & ❤️!!!! #ShadowhuntersLegacy

As I sit here and attempt to process the past 3 years, 3 seasons, 55 episodes, 400+ days of work (don’t trust my math here), I can’t help but become inundated with emotions and memories. Our time over the past 3 Seasons can be considered an odyssey but now looking back it feels more like a dream, an epic story that happened in my mind where the protagonist, this skinny, wide eyed, college graduate went from being this scrappy kid from Brooklyn to a confident, self assured, Daylighter. All of us, the cast, the crew, production, the writers room and all of you fans should be SO proud of everything we’ve done together. We have created a wonderful world full of fantastical beauty and love! We fought together, we cried together and most importantly, we loved together. My hopes are very high looking ahead at the legacy of Shadowhunters. I am very proud to have been your Simon Lewis. I am very proud to be a part of our giant family. I am very proud of each of you who continue to fight for love and make this world a better place. Keep questioning. Keep learning. Keep being curious. Keep being positive forces for change in your communities around the world! I love you all! Simon Lewis…that’s a wrap! #shadowhunterslegacy #shadowhuntersfamily #thanksforthememories #toinfinityandbeyond
