How’s this for some great news on your Thursday afternoon? The Shadowhunters season 3 premiere date has been moved up!
As you may recall, the series was originally projected to return to Freeform with new episodes on Tuesday, April 3. However, showrunner Todd Slavkin has now confirmed (see the tweet at the bottom of this CarterMatt article) that you will get a chance to see Shadowhunters back on Tuesday, March 20. That’s a full two weeks earlier, and hopefully that will help some of you frustrated with the longer-than-expected hiatus. Given that the first two seasons of the show premiered a little bit earlier in the year, the idea of waiting until April to see Clary and the other characters back in action was a rather tough thought to bear.
Is March still a long ways away? Sure, but come the new year we imagine that operation #PromoteShadowhunters is going to be very much happening at the network. We’re expecting all sorts of great stuff in support of the show, whether it be trailers, promos, photos, and other teases to get the word out. Shadowhunters has one of the most passionate followings on all of television and social engagement is really one of the things that drives this show more than almost anything else. It’s because of that we imagine that there’s going to be all sorts of great discussion articles that we’re going to have. It’s going to be up to Freeform to really push the Shadowhunters campaign now given that they’ll need people to know the updated premiere date. We’ve got a feeling that there are many out there who still believe the show is coming back in April. The show needs the best ratings that it can in order for it to obtain a season 4 renewal.
