TV series 'Shadowhunters' will end after 3 seasons

Sources say producers Constantin Film lost its output deal with Netflix which didn't make the genre drama financially feasible at the Disney-owned cable network

There's good news and bad news for fans of the Shadowhunters TV show. Without Netflix's financial backing, Constantin sought a greater cash infusion from Freeform, which sources say was unable to afford to keep the series running.

Season 3B of Shadowhunters, which is set to air in the spring of 2019, will now include two extra episodes so that fans can get a complete ending to the saga they've stuck with for several years.

"We are very proud of Shadowhunters, a series that broke new ground in the genre world and became a fan favourite", remarked the network a statement.

Last night, we were blindsided by the news that Freeform had made the decision to cancel Shadowhunters after three seasons; and just like you, the cast wasn't prepared for it.

Matthew Daddario (aka Alec Lightwood) reminded fans, "We have a full final season you should all watch that will make you cry, laugh and feel entirely and absolutely emotionally and professionally satiated for eternity". As Disney's young adult television and streaming network, it delivers a unique mix of quality original and acquired series, plus fan-favorite movies and the holiday events "31 Nights of Halloween", "Kick Off to Christmas" and "25 Days of Christmas". Additionally, Freeform announced a two-episode special finale to wrap things up. The second half of the 20-episode third season was originally slated for the summer, but will now be packaged with the additional two-part series finale in spring 2019. Former Smallville showrunners Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer replaced Ed Decter, who developed the series for Freeform.

That way the series also will cover all Mortal Instruments books, on which it is based.

Debuting in 2016, Shadowhunters follows the adventures of Clary Fray, who discovers on her 18th birthday that she's a human-angel hybrid.
