Interesting information about the show
In 2014 the film The Mortal Instruments was released, which became a failure. Its creators decided not to shoot the sequel, but to make a television series for all the books in the series. It was decided to begin the narrative from the first book “The City of Bones”. Filming began in 2015 in Toronto. After the release of the first season the series was extended to the second, and then to the third season. The plot of the third season is based on the fourth book of the series – City of Fallen Angels.
Despite the fact that the series has a large army of fans, the reaction of critics to the release of the series was very negative. They noted that the screen version of the books turned out to be “raw”, uninteresting. The show did not have enough originality and brightness.
Will there be a season 4?
Will the sequel come out Shadowhunters season 4, the release date of which has not yet been announced? The creators of the series officially did not announce the fourth season. But the third season is a screen version of Cassandra Claire’s fourth book, and the series includes six books. This gives us hope that the continuation will continue. The exact release date will not be available until the end of this year. In the meantime, fans of the series can watch the third season, which is still broadcast.
