The Shadowhunters Cast Praises Fans During 2018 Teen Choice Awards Speech
The cast of Riverdale may have taken home, like, 100 surfboards at the Teen Choice Awards, but the cast of Shadowhunters celebrated as well after a much-deserved win for Choice Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Show. Pretty good for a show that’s been canceled. Can this reverse the fate of the series?
The whole cast went on stage to accept the honor, led by Matthew Daddario — who, BTW, also won Choice Sci-Fi TV Actor. You could feel the love and unity within the cast. As Matt was talking on stage, he kept looking back at on-screen love interest Harry Shum Jr. and they both kept giving each other this smile. Their love and friendship is REAL.
Immediately, the hashtag #SaveShadowhunters went viral AGAIN, with fans everywhere pouring their hearts into the Twitterverse, begging for this show to be saved from its fate now that they had proved their dedication to the series getting it this TCA win.
From launching a campaign that’s included flying a “Save Shadowhunters” banner over Netflix headquarters to renting a billboard in Times Square, fans have worked tirelessly to save the drama. If that’s not the embodiment of teen power, we don’t know what is.
Congrats to everyone who’s worked on this show and to the FANS for making this possible!
