I’m sad to say that Shadowhunters has not been renewed for a fourth season. The second half of season three will air in 2019 and the series will also have a special two-hour final to close the series. You can tweet on twitter #SaveShadowhunters and #RenewShadowhunters to help see if Netflix can pick up the series.
VARIETY – Freeform has canceled supernatural drama series “Shadowhunters.” The show will end with a special two-hour final at the close of the upcoming second half of season three.
“We are very proud of ‘Shadowhunters,’ a series that broke new ground in the genre world and became a fan favorite,” the network said in a statement. “However, along with our partners at Constantin, we reached the very difficult decision not to renew the show for a fourth season. But as big supporters and fans ourselves, Freeform insisted on and championed the filming of a special two-part finale that would give devoted fans a proper ending. The twelve episodes will air in spring of 2019. We want to thank our talented creators, producers, cast and crew along with our colleagues at Constantin for their hard work and dedication and to Cassie Clare for her incredible book series. We look forward to the final chapter of this breakthrough drama.”
“Shadowhunters” is produced by Constantin Films. Todd Slavkin, Darren Swimmer, McG, Matt Hastings, Mary Viola, Martin Moszkowicz and Robert Kulzer serve as executive producers. The second half of the show’s third and final season — which will consist of 12 all-new episodes — is slated to premiere in spring 2019

TV LINE – It seems there’s no end in sight for Jace and Clary’s war against Valentine — Freeform is renewing Shadowhunters for a third season, TVLine has learned.
This news comes just two days after Freeform held its annual upfront presentation in New York, which — due to scheduling conflicts — the Shadowhunters gang was unable to attend.
The second half of Season 2, currently being filmed in Toronto, premieres Monday, June 5 at 8/7c. As TVLine exclusively reported, Will Tudor (Game of Thrones, Humans) is joining the cast as Sebastian, an iconic character from Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments novels, upon which the series is based.
“We really put our own spin on him the character,” showrunner Todd Slavkin tells TVLine. “As we’ve done with all the episodes you’ve seen, we’ve always had our own spin on everything — and Sebastian is no different.”
