Freeform’s popular series Shadowhunters returns for its second season on Monday, January 2, 2017 at 8pm ET/PT with an episode titled ‘This Guilty Blood.’ The network has just released details on the season two premiere which will pick up the action shortly after the season one finale. Returning Shadowhunters stars include Katherine McNamara as Clary Fray, Dominic Sherwood as Jace Wayland, Alberto Rosende as Simon Lewis, Emeraude Toubia as Isabelle Lightwood, Matthew Daddario as Alec Lightwood, Isaiah Mustafa as Luke Garroway, and Harry Shum Jr. as Magnus Bane. Series executive producers include Todd Slavkin, Darren Swimmer, McG, Michael Reisz, Matt Hastings, Mary Viola, Martin Moszkowicz and Robert Kulzer.

The ‘This Guilty Blood’ Plot: The Institute is in upheaval after Jace’s departure with Valentine in “This Guilty Blood,” the season two premiere of Shadowhunters. Only hours have passed since Jace left with Valentine and all hell has broken loose at The Institute. Alec, Isabelle and Clary are desperate to find Jace, but are quickly stopped in their tracks with the arrival of Victor Aldertree, who means business about getting the Institute back on track. But getting the New York Shadowhunters in-line with The Clave may be counterintuitive to Alec, Isabelle and Clary’s plan to rescue Jace.

Meanwhile, Jocelyn has a lot to catch up on now that she is awake.

The Season 2 Plot: The second season of Shadowhunters returns with the Shadow world in upheaval as Valentine and The Circle continue to grow stronger by the minute and our Shadowhunter team quickly becoming disillusioned with The Clave and their reaction to the recent events. Loyalties will be tested, unlikely bonds will be made and relationships will be pushed to the limit as the Shadowhunters and their Downworlder friends are making their own way in a new world.
