A Freeform supernatural drama based on The Mortal Instruments book series by Cassandra Clare, Shadowhunters stars Katherine McNamara, Dominic Sherwood, Alberto Rosende, Emeraude Toubia, Matthew Daddario, Isaiah Mustafa, Alisha Wainwright, and Harry Shum Jr. The series centers on Clary Fray (McNamara) who, upon turning 18, learned she is from a long line of demon hunters called “Shadowhunters.” In season three, the Shadowhunters and Downworlders try return to normal, in the wake of Valentine’s death, but everyone is keeping secrets, which never ends well.
