While there may not be any news to report today when it comes to a potential Shadowhunters season 4, there is one thing that you still should know: The efforts to try to save the show are noticed and very much appreciated. For some more insight into that, all you have to do is look at some of the latest reactions to Friday’s Times Square billboard via show executive producers Darren Swimmer and Todd Slavkin — who are currently working to perfect the two-hour conclusion to the series on Freeform. (Hopefully, it’s not the conclusion to the series at all.)
One thing that we do want to make clear here is that when Slavkin says that he’s worked on many canceled shows before, he’s right — some of his past credits (alongside Swimmer) include Alphas, No Ordinary Family, Guilt, and the revival of Melrose Place. Some of those shows had devoted audiences, but after their cancellations none inspired the passion and the constant fight that we’ve seen from Shadowhunters to date. This is something special just as the show itself is something special. The billboard is just one of many different acts that we’ve seen from a fandom that isn’t giving up just yet.
We don’t think that the efforts to save the show behind the scenes are over and done with yet, either. If there was no hope that the series could find a future home, don’t you think that message would be conveyed? The last thing that anyone wants to do is allow fans to hold onto false hope, and with that, we don’t exactly think that is happening here, either. What makes the waiting hard is the unknown of it all, given that good news could come in a split-second or without warning. It’s an uphill battle in the first place, but fighting to save the show is almost like running uphill not knowing when you are going to make it to the top.
For now, keep the #SaveShadowhunters campaign going!
