Odds are, at this point you’ve already heard the glorious news if you are a Shadowhunters fan: The show is coming back for a third season! There’s no more need to worry about the summer run being the final run for the show.
Unfortunately, Freeform still has not announced many more details when it comes to the show’s future. We don’t know for certain how many episodes season 3 will be just yet, or when it will premiere … though it feels fair to assume that it’ll be coming at some point in the early part of 2018. The biggest thing that we got beyond the renewal announcement was the new synopsis below, which gives you a little bit more insight into what will be coming in the final two episodes of season 2.
“Shadowhunters” returns for the second half of season two on MONDAY, JUNE 5 (8:00 – 9:00 p.m. EDT), with Shadowhunters and Downworlders reeling from what happened at the New York Institute in the winter finale. As the rift between the two sides grows larger, the team and their Downworld friends and lovers are put in the middle of the dangerous divide. Torn between the Clave’s rules and what they feel is right, Clary, Jace, Alec and Isabelle struggle to help forge a new beginning. Relationships will be tested, a new Shadowhunter named Sebastian will join the fray and the Seelie Queen will step out of the shadows in the summer season.
There probably isn’t that much in here that is a surprise if you consider yourself a massive fan of the book series. Yet, at the same time there is something to be said for seeing the transition of something from the book to the small screen, and we’re rather excited now to see where exactly the story is going to be going coming up the rest of the way and how things will be presented. We’re not someone coming into the show with much knowledge of the source material; with that, we get the experience of being able to enjoy everything with a new and fresh set of eyes.
