Description: Based on the bestselling young adult fantasy book series The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, “Shadowhunters” follows 18-year-old Clary Fray, who finds out on her birthday 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. When her mother, Jocelyn, is kidnapped, Clary is thrown into the world of demon hunting with mysterious Shadowhunter Jace and her best friend, Simon. Now living among faeries, warlocks, vampires and werewolves, Clary begins a journey of self-discovery as she learns more about her past and what her future may hold. Freeform

Season End Status: Coming as no surprise, this show has been renewed for a second season by Freeform.  It has not counted as a breakout hit ratings-wise this year, but it has pulled decent numbers for a cable series these days and it has seen good delayed viewing gains (more important among the cable channels than the broadcast networks).  Plus, it has demonstrated a “stickiness” in social media, something that is becoming more and more important in gauging a show’s audience of late.  In addition, it has performed better than Stitchers did last Summer before that show was renewed by the same network.  The second season of Shadowhunters will likely bow in early 2017.
