Shadowhunters Renewed for Season 2

Katherine McNamara as Clary Fray on Shadowhunters

The paranormal fantasy drama Shadowhunters has been renewed for a second season on Freeform.

The show, which debuted in January, is based on the bestselling series of books by Cassandra Clare, The Mortal Instruments. The Shadowhunters cast announced the good news on Monday during a Facebook Q&A.

With the show diving deep into the source material, it is now set to outpace the film adaptation which got lackluster results at the box office.

Shadowhunters stars Katherine McNamara as Clary Fray, a young woman who finds out “that she is not who she thinks she is, but rather comes from a long line of Shadowhunters — human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons.” Dominic Sherwood, Alberto Rosende, Matthew Daddario, Emeraude Toubia, Isaiah Mustafa, and Harry Shum Jr. also portray characters from the books.

The first season is set to air its final episode on April 5.

Shadowhunters airs Tuesdays at 9pm EST on ABC Family/Freeform.SuperFable
