Earlier this month, executive producers Darren Swimmer, Todd Slavkin, and Matt Hastings, along with series stars Kat McNamara, Matthew Daddario, Isaiah Mustafa, and Alisha Wainwright, came together for a special panel at New York Comic Con and dropped a ton of announcements about the upcoming season:
FIRST: The show will return to our TVs on Tuesday, April 3rd @ 8PM ET/PT on Freeform.
SECOND: The series was picked up for an additional 10 episodes that will air next summer.
THIRD: Broadway star Javier Muñoz (‘Hamilton’) and actress Anna Hopkins (‘Arrow’) will be joining the cast this season! Muñoz and Hopkins will guest star as two new adversaries
for the Shadowhunters crew – this season’s main villain, Lilith, played by Hopkins and a rival warlock for Magnus Bane played by Muñoz.
Muñoz recorded a special video announcment to reveal his casting, stating that he can’t wait for everyone to see him in this role.
FOURTH: The network unveiled a brand new trailer for the upcoming season that gives us a first look at what’s to come. We see that things are getting steamy with Jace and Clary, Simon is standing up to the Seelie Queen, and Malec seems to be stronger than ever. We also see that Luke will confront his partner on what she saw in the S2 finale AND there’s a new demon on the loose. Talk about drama!
After the panel, Celeb Secrets met up with Kat, Matthew, Alisha, and Isaiah to have them elaborate on what’s to come for this upcoming season. They also spilled some funny behind-the-scenes secrets that we don’t get to see when watching the show! Watch the full interview below for more:
After watching the trailer and hearing what the cast had to say about upcoming episodes, we predict that season 3 of Shadowhunters will be its best season yet. The show is about to take on some of fans’ most beloved storylines while making them deeper and darker than before, and we’re all for it!
Don’t miss the season 3 premiere of Shadowhunters on Tuesday, April 3rd @ 8PM ET/PT on Freeform.
