‘Shadowhunters’ cancelled by Freeform: How to help save the show

Shadowhunters will return with the continuation of it’s third season in Spring 2019 on Freeform 

As of Monday June 4th, Freeform has opted to cancel it’s popular fantasy series based off The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. While the show still has ten more episodes left of Season 3, Freeform has given it a two hour series finale which will be added to the end of the season.

Not only is this a huge disappointment but it’s also a huge shock. While Shadowhunters hasn’t had the best live ratings this season, it’s social media presence and the impact its had on fans have been massive. Not to mention the popularity the show has internationally.
