Katherine McNamara

Digital Fox sat down with Katherine McNamara after Shadowhunters’ heartbreaking cancellation. The show’s star shared some touching final words of goodbye.

The announcement that Shadowhunters is going to be cancelled has sent shockwaves through the series’ dedicated fan community.

The show, which first aired in 2016, is the second adaptation of the novel series, after the 2013 film The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. It is currently on its third and now final season.

Sitting down with Digital Fox in the lead up to Oz Comic-Con, lead star Katherine McNamara was visibly upset by the news of Shadowhunters’ cancellation, saying she was just as surprised the fans.

McNamara also asked to send a message to the awesome fans of the series. This is what she said:

“I wanted to say a thank you to all of the fans out there, who have been with us on this journey. Those who have either been fans of the book, or those who are new to the story – those who have loved it and cared about it as much as we have. We love you guys and we hope you stick with us in the future too.”

Fans’ #SaveShadowhunters has gone viral, and McNamara also emphasised how much she appreciated this. She is unsure where the future of the show will go – if there will be a future – but promised an epic end to Season 3.
