Fans of Freeform’s hit show Shadowhunters didn’t just turn up, they took over NYCC!
It was pretty impossible to walk the floor at the Javits Convention Center and not hear people talk about Freeform’s Shadowhunters. Fans of the show didn’t just turn up, they took over! Everywhere you walked there were posters, shirts, pictures, and cosplayers dressed as their favorite characters from the show. After attending the panel (that started with a dance party before the actors even came out), and getting a chance to chat with the charismatic and fun cast of the show, we see why fans can’t get enough of this TV adaptation from the popular books.
If you aren’t familiar with the plot here’s a quick rundown for you:
On her birthday, Clary Fray discovers a surprise concerning her life. The teenager is not who she thinks she is — she comes from a long line of human-angel hybrids, called Shadowhunters, who hunt demons. After her mother is kidnapped, Clary is thrust into the world of demon-hunting. Clary relies on mysterious Jace and fellow hunters Isabelle and Alec to help her navigate the dark world.
The cast of Shadowhunters could not have been more game to answer our silly questions at New York Comic Con and give us some insight into the highly anticipated season 2 of Shadowhunters premiering Monday, January 2nd at 8/7c on Freeform!
We discovered that Dominic Sherwood and Matthew Daddario may have a talent for musical improv, and we’re certain you will enjoy their after dark guilty pleasures. Katherine McNamara and Emeraude Toubia dish about their other TV obsessions besides Shadowhunters. And Harry Shum Jr. teases things are going to get deep in season 2.
Speaking of deep, the Shadowhunters panel revealed that season two will be a bit darker, so we wanted to know just how dark will it get? Isaiah Mustafa sums of up how fans will feel about this season with “way too many feels. Way too much emotion.” Trust us Isaiah, we are already feeling the feels!
The Shadowhunters cast has some of the best chemistry we have ever seen. It’s clear in their answers to our questions when they play off each other and offer up witty responses. Fans have commented on this since the beginning and it’s apparent why the show is doing so well with them as the stars. Make sure you check out our interviews with the cast below!
