Hi everyone! I’m very sorry for the lack of updates. I’ve been really busy the past few weeks and haven’t had proper time to work on the site. I’ll slowly be catching up with everything for Shadowhunters that comes back next week!
I have added HQ episode stills from the second episode of the second season of Shadowhunters, “A Door Into the Dark” to the gallery. Enjoy!
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – When Shadowhunters returns for its second season, things are getting darker. Literally. For new showrunners Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer, one of the things they wanted to change about the show was the physical look of it.
“There were a lot of cool things that perhaps could be cooler, visual-effect wise, the look of the show,” Slavkin tells EW. “We took the rooms and we darkened them.”
And yet, that isn’t the only change the new showrunners made. “We’re character guys,” Slavkin says. “We wrote Smallville for many years and the thrill of that for us was the character and the growth and the relationships between the people. If anything, in season 2, we’re leaning more into that. Of course there’s missions and of course there’s hunting, but the yearning, the longing, the triangles, the relationships is what really turns us on.”
Today, Matt attended 2016 New York Comic Con with his Shadowhunters cast members. I have updated the gallery with some high quality photos from the con to the gallery. If anymore are released, I’ll add them to the gallery! If you re-post these, please credit back the site.
TVLINE – Shadowhunters doesn’t return until 2017, but based on these first-look photos from Season 2, Clary and the gang are more than ready to rumble.
Ahead of Saturday’s panel at New York Comic-Con, TVLine has an exclusive gallery of cast photos from the Freeform drama’s sophomore outing, featuring all your favorite Shadowhunters and Downworlders. (And speaking of Downworlders, Simon is starting to look real comfortable with those vampire fangs.)
Fortunately, there’s no sign of the evil Valentine in our gallery, though we promise you’ll be seeing plenty of Clary’s biological father as we head into Season 2. He does, after all, still have Jace under his control.
“We should be very worried about Jace,” former showrunner Ed Decter told TVLine following the first season finale. “As fans of the books know, he’s about to take a very dark journey.”
EW.COM – When Shadowhunters ended its first season, Magnus and Alec had shared their first kiss, but not much else. The good news? That leaves a lot to be explored in season 2.
EW has an exclusive first look at a Malec moment from season 2, which picks up just moments after the season 1 finale. “We don’t miss a beat between the finale and the premiere,” showrunner Todd Slavkin tells EW. Slavkin and Darren Swimmer, best known for Smallville, are new to the show this season, taking over the series from Ed Decter, who helmed season 1.
Speaking specifically about what’s in store for Malec, Slavkin says: “Because of the complications in the end of season 1 and Jace now being gone, we get to really show the evolution of the relationship from the beginning. They’ve got to learn to know each other and we get to follow that path.
“They’re from such two different worlds — one’s a warlock, one’s a shadowhunter. One is super experienced and has lived for centuries and has bedded many, many, many men and women, and here’s Alec, who is a young lad who’s just leaping into the world of relationships. We thought it was great in season 1, and it’s a relationship that we’re deeply invested in and has such interesting potential.”
Matt is featured in the September issue of August Man Malaysia. I have added scans to the gallery from the magazine. Not the best quality, but you still definitely should still take a look! Matt looks so handsome. It’s definitely one of my favorite shoots now!
Yesterday (July 31), Matt attended the Teen Choice Awards. The gallery has been updated with high quality photos from the awards! Matt won for Choice TV: Breakout Star and Shadowhunters won Choice TV: Breakout Show. Congrats! Matthew also presented the award for “Choice Movie Breakout Star” with the Bella Twins, you can watch it below.
