Freeform's #YoungAdult show Shadowhunters won't be hitting our screens and Netflix for a little while yet. But, ahead of its Season 2 premiere, and panel at New York Comic Con, the show has released a series of images via TV Line featuring all your favs from Season 1! Check them out below!
Jace (Dom Sherwood)
The last time we'd seen the smart-mouthed, blonde-haired beauty Jace, he'd run off with father Valentine AND the Mortal Cup to cause all kinds of mayhem! Though details on where he'll be in Season 2 are slim (for those that haven't read the books, of course), I think it's clear to say we're about to see Jace on a whirlwind of emotions now that he's teamed up with Daddy Valentine, and they're not likely to be good.
Speaking to TV Line, Season 1 showrunner Ed Decter had this to say about Jace,
"We should be very worried about Jace. As fans of the books know, he’s about to take a very dark journey."
With Valentine by his side, the Mortal Cup and an army of new Shadowhunters, I think it's safe to say we're in for an even more troubled Jace come Season 2!
Clary (Kat McNamara)
Clary has had the hardest time of all, and it doesn't look to be getting any easier for her. She spent all of Season 1 hunting down The Mortal Cup with a fiery motivation to save her mother, only to have The Mortal Cup now be the downfall of Jace. With her Mum back at her side, and her family almost intact, she's got everything she fought for in Season 1, whilst losing some of the extra's (Jace) she gained along the way.
That and...well there are still some semi incestious feelings between herself and Jace and Daddy Valentine. What a weird little family triangle that turned out to be!
(book fans: sssshhhh!)
Simon (Alberto Rosende)
When we last saw the adorable BFF of Clary, Simon, he was adjusting to life as Vampire and trying to find his place in the world. His allegiance lies permanently with Clary, but as a Downworlder, at some point the Vampire's are going to ask for his sole allegiance to them. Though he's helped Clary many a time, even going with her to bust Camille out when they needed it most, Simon's going to have to find his place in the Shadow World, and there's a chance it won't be the side he wants.
Izzy (Emeraude Toubia)
The impossibly gorgeous and insansely capabale Isabelle (Izzy) is a beast with her whip, and an expert Shadowhunter. When we last saw Izzy, she watched adopted brother Jace fall prey to Valentine's lies, and run off with him and his horde of loyal followers. A romance with Meliorn still bubbling, and a keen interest in the "nerd hot" Simon, Izzy too has a lot in store for Season 2. Not only will they all be on the hunt for Jace and Valentine, but Shadowhunter training for Clary may fall on her hands, as a friend and fellow Shadowhunter.
Alec (Matt Daddario)
Izzy's older brother Alec, has some of the biggest burdens to bear for next season. As the acting head of The Institute, Jace's loyalty to Valentine and fact that they both escaped with The Mortal Cup, will likely find blame at Alec's feet. Through in the fact that his burgeoning romance with Downworlder Warlock Magnus is under scrutiny from just about everyone around him, including his tough-as-nails mother Maryse, Alec has some pretty huge problems on his shoulders. He may now be out and proud, but he's got a lot of trouble coming his way for Season 2, let's hope he can handle it.
With the help of Magnus. Obviously. #MalecTrash
Magnus (Harry Shum Jr)
The "quite magical" High Warlock of Brooklyn, Magnus Bane has been a helping hand to the Shadowhunter gang more than once, lending his magic, wisdom and weirdness whenever they need. When we last saw Magnus, he'd crashed Alec's wedding in a decidedly unmagical way, only to have Alec declare his feelings for him in what turned out to be the best and most magical moment of the season. A new-found love that has "awakened something" within him on the cards, and of course the added stress of Valentine currently having The Mortal Cup, Magnus has a lot in store for Season 2. Let's hope some of that includes some quality down time with Alec!
Luke (Isaiah Mustafa)
Clary's surrogate Dad of sorts, Luke Garroway played a large part in Season 1, and with Jocelyn awake and well, will hopefully do the same in Season 2. When we last saw Luke, he'd kileld the alpha of his pack to protect Clary and the gang, assuming the role of Alpha for himself. With Jocelyn alive, there's room for yet another burgeoning romance on this show, and of course the threat of Valentine and The Mortal Cup reign supreme in the Shadow World, so he'll have a ton to deal with on that front.
Keen-eyed Shadowhunter fans like myself will notice that although these images are marketed for Season 2; there does appear to be a few unreleased pics from Season 1 in the mix. Here's hoping we get some brand spanking new material over the weekend at Comic Con!
