Shadowhunters Cast Shocked and Heartbroken After Show Gets Canceled

By  | 

Many of your favorite shows, such as Riverdale and Arrow, have already been renewed for new seasons, but, sadly, one series doesn’t share the same fate. It was announced last night that Shadowhunters has been canceled and will wrap up with the second half of season three in early 2019.

The final 10 episodes of S3 will air as planned, but the network also ordered a two-episode finale to properly wrap up the series. Freeform explained its decision in a statement posted yesterday.

“We are very proud of Shadowhunters, a series that broke new ground in the genre world and became a fan favorite,” the network said. “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.”

If you thought you were shocked and heartbroken by the Shadowhunters announcement, you can only imagine what the cast of the show felt.

Katherine McNamara, who plays Clary, says she was “shocked” to hear the news.

Alec Lightwood, a.k.a. Matthew Daddario, calls it “a sad day.”

Dom Sherwood (Jace Wayland) is saying “goodbye with a heavy heart.”
