The wait is over, Shadowhunters fans! Or at least we will know exactly when it will be over. The good news is, we are merely six and a half weeks away from getting new episodes of our favorite warriors (but who’s counting). The bad news is, well, … it will be the final few episodes of the series. We’re all still a bit raw from the cancellation.
Freeform has now announced that season 3B of Shadowhunters will return Monday, February 25. Find the official description for the remainder of the season below:
“Unbeknownst to them, the Shadowhunters face a new level of evil that they can’t even imagine with the arrival of Jonathan Morgenstern (Luke Baines), the true form of Clary’s brother.
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.
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.”
Judging from the description we can already tell that the last part of the series will be filled with angst and devastation. Not only Simon will struggle with the aftermath of the mid-season finale, Jace will likely fall off the deep end after blaming himself for everything that had happened,At the end of last year the cast did tease that the remaining episodes would be tonally much darker, so this should not come as a surprise.
Also not a surprise: Clary is alive. But what could this dangerous new predicament that she finds herself in be? Could it be related to Lilith’s powers? One thing is for sure, our girl will get herself out of there in no time.
Shadowhunters stars Katherine McNamara, Dominic Sherwood, Alberto Rosende, Emeraude Toubia, Matthew Daddario Isaiah Mustafa, Alisha Wainwright, and Harry Shum Jr. The series is based on the book series The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare.
Shadowhunters returns with new episodes February 26 at 8/7 ct on Freeform.
