It’s no surprise that the show has been picked up again, Shadowhunters premiered as Freeform’s number two series premiere on record in adults 18-49, and adults 25-54. It is also the number one series launch of all time in men 18-49 and men 25-54 and number three launch on record in total viewers. It’s now the network’s number two series in long-form views, only behind the hit series Pretty Little Liars.
Shadowhunters is based on the bestselling YA series The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. Clary Fray grows up thinking she’s just like everyone else, until on her birthday she finds out that she’s actually from a long line of Shadowhunters — human-angel hybrids who hunt demons. When her mother is kidnapped, Clary is thrown into their word and has to quickly adapt to save both herself and her mother. While Jace, Isabelle, and Alec help her learn about the world she never knew existed.
Some fans of the YA series have been skeptical about the TV adaptation. However, it’s proven itself by winning over the hearts of many of the fans. The amazing cast and crew is probably to thank for that and Hypable hopes to see the series last for many more seasons!
