Dom Sherwood Blown Away by Fan Support, Despite End of Shadowhunters
Shadowhunters might be over for the foreseeable future, but that doesn’t mean the fans have moved on. In fact, they’ve been desperately trying to save the show from cancellation. The loyal viewers have started petitions, bought a billboard in Times Square and even flown a plane over Netflix headquarters in an attempt to rescue it!

But not all hope is lost just yet. Producer Martin Moszkowicz claimed there were still ongoing discussions as for whether to renew the show or not, and Shadowhunters fans have given them plenty of reasons to tack on another season. But, regardless of if it does get picked back up, Dom Sherwood, who plays Jace on the show, says he’s completely blown away by the support.
He told The AU Review, “I think that the wonderful feeling of having all these people who support it from all over the world, all different avenues, from different countries and different places is just wonderful. It’s really a nice, heartwarming moment in the world, where really we do need unity; we do need a sense of togetherness because it seems more and more every day I watch the news and people are trying to tear apart from each other. Or the powers that be are trying to tear people apart. I think it’s really important that we, as a group of people, stick together and look after each other and make sure that everyone is happy, healthy and successful. That’s what this has really epitomized for me. The fan reaction has made me feel that there’s hope out there.”
The 28-year-old said he believes Shadowhunters has gained so many loyal fans because of the show’s relatability.
“Having a strong support base in any avenue in the world is so fundamental,” he said. “I think that a lot of what we’ve seen over the course of the show, a lot of the issues we deal with, are real issues that young people are going through in the real world. A lot of what we have seen is that people really struggle with who to talk to about it all. I’m 28 now, and I still do the same thing. People go through the same breakups as me. Maybe my story is a little different, and who do I talk to about it?”

What a ride. I have laughed and cried and experienced a full spectrum of emotion over the last three years. All I can say is thank you for this opportunity. Being allowed to wake up every day and become f*cking JACE!! The hero. The soldier. The lover. The brother. The parabatai. Is more than I could have every dreamed. Thank you everyone for sharing him with me. Hopefully you’ve learned from him as I have. About love and compassion above everything else. I love each and every one of you and you all have a special place in my heart. Keep loving and smiling always. Thank you. @shadowhunterstv #shadowhunterslegacy P.s. Here is a picture of me being a goof in make up. I don’t even really know what’s going on here. Your welcome.
Even though the future of Shadowhunters is uncertain, Dom assured us that he won’t be going anywhere any time soon!
“There are very bright things on the horizon, but unfortunately, I am absolutely not allowed to talk about them. But the love of my life is this career, so I will not be gone, I will not be disappearing into the world.”
We can’t wait to see what’s in store!
