Cape Town – The final 12 episodes of the second half of the third season of the fantasy drama series Shadowhunters will start on 25 February 2019 in the US.

It will immediately become available on Netflix South Africa with one episode released per week.

The Disney-ABC Television Group's Freeform channel in June announced that it had cancelled Shadowhunters after 3 seasons after the production company Constantin Film lost its output deal with Netflix.

Ironically, Shadowhunters leads the pack in terms of nominations at the 2018 E! People's Choice Awards that will be broadcast on Monday 12 November in South Africa and Africa on E! Entertainment (DStv 124) as the most popular and most nominated show by global fans.

Shadowhunters, based on Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instruments novels, will return from 25 February 2019 with 12 episodes including a 2-episode series finale entitled "The Final Hunt", with the show that announced the news about the starting date of the 3B-part of the season on Saturday on social media on its Twitter account.

While Katherine McNamara (Clary), Dominic Sherwood (Jace), Matthew Daddario (Alec), Alberto Rosende (Simon), Emeraude Toubia (Isabelle), Isaiah Mustafa (Luke) and Harry Shum Jr. (Magnus) will all be back for the final 12 episodes, the Australian actor Luke Baines is replacing Will Tudor as villain Jonathan Morgenstern, with the character that was "respawned" in the 3A-season finale as Clary's evil brother.

Production on Shadowhunters wrapped in August.
