Shadowhunters is a supernatural drama series that premiered on Freeform in 2016. It is based on the popular young adult book series, The Mortal Instruments, written by Cassandra Clare. The series stars a talented cast of actors, including Alan Van Sprang as Valentine Morgenstern, Alberto Rosende as Simon Lewis, David Castro as Raphael Santiago, Dominic Sherwood as Jace Wayland, Edie Inksetter as Professor Overton, Emeraude Toubia as Isabelle Lightwood, Harry Shum Jr. as Magnus Bane, Isaiah Mustafa as Luke Garroway, Jon Cor as Hodge Starkweather, Katherine McNamara as Clary Fray, Matthew Daddario as Alec Lightwood, Maxim Roy as Jocelyn Fray, Sofia Wells as Young Clary and Vanessa Matsui as Dorothea.

The show follows Clary Fray, a seemingly ordinary girl who finds out that she comes from a long line of Shadowhunters, a secret group of half-angel warriors who fight demons and protect the human world from supernatural threats. Clary's mother, Jocelyn, took drastic measures to protect her daughter and hide her from the Shadow World. However, when Jocelyn is kidnapped, Clary is forced to dive headfirst into this dangerous world in order to rescue her mother.

Along the way, Clary meets various other Shadowhunters, including Jace Wayland, who becomes a love interest for Clary despite their supposed sibling relationship, Alec Lightwood, who struggles with his own sexuality and feelings for Magnus Bane, Isabelle Lightwood, who is fierce and fashionable, and Simon Lewis, Clary's best friend who also gets caught up in the supernatural world.

One of the main villains of the show is Valentine Morgenstern, the antagonist who is determined to take down the Clave, the organization in charge of Shadowhunters. Valentine also happens to be Clary's estranged father, and his complicated relationship with her adds another layer of conflict to the story.

Another important character is Magnus Bane, a warlock who becomes romantically involved with Alec. Magnus is charismatic, powerful, and has lived for centuries, making him a valuable resource for the Shadowhunters when it comes to solving supernatural mysteries.

Throughout the show's three seasons, Clary and her friends face a number of challenges, including fighting off demons and navigating complex relationships. They also uncover various secrets about their family histories and the true nature of the Shadow World, which often puts them in danger.

Aside from the compelling storyline and talented cast, Shadowhunters is also known for its impressive special effects and stylish aesthetic. From the intricate rune tattoos that the Shadowhunters wear to the dark, gothic-inspired sets, the show has a distinct and immersive look that adds to its overall appeal.

Overall, Shadowhunters is a thrilling, action-packed show that delivers on both the supernatural and romantic fronts. With a dedicated fanbase and beloved characters, it's easy to see why the show became such a hit during its run on Freeform.

Shadowhunters is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (58 episodes). The series first aired on December 6, 2015.
