Shadowhunters: Here's where else fans can spot their favorite actors in 2019
Of course, this is only to tide Y'all over till 'Shadowhunters' Season 4, which you know is gonna happen
Freeform's fantasy show 'Shadowhunters' has garnered such massive amounts of fan following and appreciation in the last three years that it is pretty much epic and revolutionary. Even at the brink of the show's third and final season releasing, fans and followers are still marching on in the quest of getting the show saved - or simply picked up by another network, especially since it was abruptly canceled earlier this year.
Every day the #SaveShadowhunters campaign gains momentum, and every day is a new battle for fans worldwide to put aside their apprehension about the show's future and continue striving for its revival. But we're here to give them some comfort and solace, so listen: Even though the future of 'Shadowhunters' seems uncertain at the moment, your favorite characters' alter egos - aka the actors who play them - are going to be soon onscreen where you can see them again.
We have already reported that our favorite redhead from the show, Clary Fray, has found a new alter ego in the form of Maya. Well, technically, Katherine McNamara, who plays Clary, just joined the cast of 'Arrow' as a street fighter called Maya. In trailers, Maya can be seen in the ring, throwing some major fight and kicking a** but here's the catch: she is not a redhead anymore. Maya is a blonde, much like Katherine in real life and fans can't wait to see her plot unfold on the series based on DC comics' characters.
Next up is of course the High Warlock of Brooklyn aka Magnus Bane aka Harry Shum Jr. The trained dancer who is one half of the fan favorite Shadowunter couple Malec - aka Magnus and Alec Lightwood (Matthew Daddario) suprised and amazed his fans in what has been one of this year's biggest films - 'Crazy Rich Asians.' He plays the role of Charlie Wu in the brilliant rom-com with an all Asian cast, and appears only for brief moments in the mid-credits scene right at the very end of the movie.
And, now it has been announced that he will have a significantly bigger role in the sequel to the film (which is already in works) and a romance is expected to be on the cards between his character and Astrid (Gemma Chan), who is the supporting heroine of sorts in the film. You can also see him in Sylvester Stallone's 'Escape Plan 3' and alongside Josh Hutcherson and Suki Waterhouse in 'Burn'.
Speaking of Malec, we cannot overlook the other very strong half of the ship - Alec, aka Matthew Daddario. But sadly, there hasn't been any official announcement on what can be expected from the hazel eyed brother of Alexandra Daddario. And, the case is similar with the other major lead characters of 'Shadowhunters' - Jace Wyland/Herondale - as the face behind the role, Dominic Sherwood, is yet to announce his upcoming projects.
But worry not, speculations are still rife and with talent as remarkable and noteworthy as both Matthew and Dominic have exhibited on 'Shadowhunters' it won't be long before the two hunks of the show are back on the screen to wow their fans again. Which also assures us that the third cutest hunk from the show - Simon Lewis aka Alberto Rosende - will also be back on screen with something equally interesting; and if not - fans can always watch out for his brilliant musical covers and book reads that he puts out on his social media every now and then. Fans have even speculated that both him, and Katherine are going to put out a musical collab of their own sometime soon and that's something to look forward to, right?!
And, if you look at musical skills of the cast, it's impossible to overlook the whip-lashing, savage queen Isabelle Lightwood aka Emeraude Toubia - a trained dancer, whose boyfriend is musician Prince Royce. Emeraude had appeared in Royce's music video for his single 'Culpa al Corazón' and even if on-screen appearances are not on the cards for her, hopefully fans can watch out for new music from Royce with videos featuring her again!
But here's what we do know for sure - both Alisha Wainwright, and Isiah Mustafa, who play Maia Roberts and Luke Garroway respectively on 'Shadowhunters' - have already ventured into new on-screen projects set to arrive in 2019.
As fellow cast member Matthew had gushed about in his tweet, Isiah is set to join the cast of 'It Chapter 2' based on the highly popular novel by Stephen King, and acting as a sequel to its 2018 adaptation titled 'It.' While Alisha on the other hand will star opposite Michael B. Jordan in a Netflix show called 'Raising Dion' which revolves around a single mother raising seven kids.
So that's your update for 2019 - with ample scope of spotting your favorite stars from 'Shadowhunters'. Of course, this is only to tide you'll over till Shadowhunters Season 4, which you know is gonna happen.
