Fans were heartbroken when the fan-favorite Freeform series Shadowhunters came to an end after the two-part series finale aired in May 2019. For three seasons, the supernatural drama series captured audiences with its relatable characters, dramatic cliffhangers and epic romances, before sadly coming to an end.
“When I first read the ending, I wasn’t 100 percent sure about it but having watched it and seen how the season goes together as a whole, it’s perfect in my opinion,” the show’s star, Katherine McNamara, told Entertainment Tonight in February 2019. “It is the best ending that it could have been and I’m proud of it. We got to be creative for ourselves and we got to make this for us; it’s a love letter to the fans.”
Aside from Katherine, Shadowhunters starred Dominic Sherwood, Alberto Rosende, Matthew Daddario, Emeraude Toubia, Isaiah Mustafa, Harry Shum Jr. and Alisha Wainwright. The series first hit TV screens in January 2016 and was based off the popular book series The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare.
It primarily followed high school student Clary Fray after her 18th birthday when she found out that instead of being a normal girl, her family stemmed from a long line of Shadowhunters — human-angel hybrids that hunt demons. Throughout the series, fans watched as Clary was thrown into the world of demon hunting and came to terms with her new life.
When the show came to an end, Katherine told Cosmopolitan in March 2019 it felt like she “lost a limb.”
“I sort of became an adult on Shadowhunters,” she said at the time. “It’s still a bit strange that it’s not there anymore, that I’m not going back, and I’m still processing that, but it’s something that I’ll carry with me forever and something that I’ll always love.”
Since the show aired its series finale, the entire cast has stayed in the Hollywood scene and some even went on to nab roles in some major TV shows and movies! But Katherine told J-14 exclusively in October 2021 that she’d always be down to reprise her role as Clary.
“If anybody needs a Clary Fray, I volunteer as tribute,” she gushed. “That show and that story was so special to me, and always will be. The fandom is just amazing. I will do absolutely anything for those angels. You know, if Friends can do a reunion 10 years down the line, maybe we can too!”
