Brief review: behind-the-scene and acting crews, premiere date, fabrication companies
Shadowhunters is made as a serial of the genre of fantasy. It is an obvious thing if to look at the title of the story. The story has a firm background. This foundation is presented by The Mortal Instruments novel series created by Cassandra Clare. The serial itself is developed by Ed Decler specifically for Freeform broadcasting.
The debut was slated for the middle of January this year. The production company is presented by the entire range of studios including Constantin Films, Wonderland Sound and Vision, Unique Features, Carteret St. Productions and Freedom Originals.
The given serial is reckoned to be not the first one adaptation of the book by the way. The first one is considered to be the feature film under the title “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones”.

The principal heroine is to learn many aspects of her new nature during the run of the serial.
What is about rating number?
The expectations o the new show producers seem to be not met. The reviews from critics turn to more negative than positive. What they are blaming the developers for is that they haven’t coped with the task to fill the serial with plot depth. The serial is also criticized for desperate trend-chasing. As for the total number of viewers, it is fluctuating between 0.5 and 1 million viewers with the decrease of the amount during the run of the project.
It is curious that the 2013 feature film (the aforementioned first adaptation of the novels) hasn’t gained much success also.
When can we expect the renewal of the serial?
Though the general impression from the story is not quite great as it has been expected, the developers seem like staying positive concerning the possibility to change the situation for the better.

The Shadowhunters season 2 release date is still unknown, that’s why we should keep abreast of the situation together with the immediate participants of the film project.
