Freeform’s Shadowhunters finally returns for the second half of season three on February 25, 2019 at 8pm ET/PT. The first half concluded way back in May 2018, leaving fans hanging with a cliffhanger that seemed to indicate Clary is dead. The second half of the season picks up with Clary’s friends mourning her loss and trying their best to carry on.
In June 2018 Freeform broke the news that the series was not renewed for a fourth season. The second half of season three will be the end of the series, concluding with a special two-hour episode to wrap up storylines.
The season three cast includes 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, Harry Shum Jr. as Magnus Bane, and Alisha Wainwright as Maia Roberts. The series is executive produced by Todd Slavkin, Darren Swimmer, McG, Matt Hastings, Mary Viola, Martin Moszkowicz and Robert Kulzer.
The “Lost Souls” Plot: In the emotional midseason premiere, everyone is dealing with the loss of Clary and are trying to move on best they can. Unbeknownst to them, the Shadowhunters face a new level of evil that they can’t even imagine with the arrival of Jonathan Morgenstern.
Meanwhile, Maia tries to help a devastated Simon who has lost his family and his best friend. But unknown to everyone, Clary is alive and finds herself in a new and dangerous predicament.
The Season 3 Second Half Plot:
With the loss of Clary after Lilith’s apartment exploded, Alec, Isabelle and Jace try to come to terms with what has happened. Glad to have their brother back, Alec and Isabelle are still worried about Jace, who is taking the actions of The Owl very hard. Magnus is also mourning the loss of his magic and finds himself in a new position—having to rely on others for help.
