Shadowhunters now has a limited lifespan with the show set to end at the end of season 3B.
Here’s the Official Statement:
“We are very proud of ‘Shadowhunters,’ a series that broke new ground in the genre world and became a fan favorite. However, along with our partners at Constantin, we reached the very difficult decision not to renew the show for a fourth season. But as big supporters and fans ourselves, Freeform insisted on and championed the filming of a special two-part finale that would give devoted fans a proper ending. The twelve episodes will air in spring of 2019. We want to thank our talented creators, producers, cast and crew along with our colleagues at Constantin for their hard work and dedication and to Cassie Clare for her incredible book series. We look forward to the final chapter of this breakthrough drama.”
It seems beyond the statement that there was a breakdown over the deal that saw Shadowhunters air on Netflix which led to the decision to wrap the series up. This will come out of the blue for fans of the series and it is easily one of the most successful offerings on Freeform since the channel rebranded and Pretty Little Liars ended its run.
Are you disappointed that Shadowhunters is coming to an end?
