While fan campaigns to save the show continue in full throttle, Freeform has released the first look photo of the upcoming 3B of Shadowhunters and we are definitely excited!
February is a bittersweet month for 'Shadowhunters' fans, seeing as 25th would mark the highly anticipated part B of season three, but also the final few episodes of the beloved show. While fan campaigns to save the show continue in full throttle, Freeform has released the first look photo of the upcoming 3B and we are definitely excited.
Fans may not have fully forgiven the network for making fun of all the attempts they were making to extend the life of 'Shadowhunters', but the first look is definitely appreciated. It gives a much-desired taste of what is to come in the episodes set for premiere in February 2019.

The hunt for Clary on #Shadowhunters is on. Luke and Jace search for Clary in this exclusive first look at the show's final season. Showrunner Todd Slavkin says the final season is the show’s most adult, most sophisticated run of episodes yet, all building to the two-hour finale.

The photo shared by Entertainment Weekly Isaiah Mustafa's Luke Garroway pointed to something on a board as Dominic Sherwood's Jace Herondale looks on. It is evident that both men, wrecked by the disappearance of Clary (portrayed by Katherine McNamara) are tracing her.
The first half of season three ended with an explosion that left the fates of Clary and Jonathan (portrayed by Will Tudor) unknown. We do, however, know that both characters would return to the show. However, the other central characters on the show – specifically Luke and Jace – are a little less clued on this information.
As showrunner Todd Slavkin revealed, "They refuse to believe that Clary is gone forever. As a father figure, Luke is really driving that search." However, he warns that the Clary they find might not be the one they know and love, because her experiences, while she was away, would change her forever. Slavkin says, "It will take a lot to go back to how Clary used to be."
However, the hunt for Clary will only be a part of what is to come in season 3B. The various episodes and storylines would build up to the epic two-hour finale event which would offer closure to the fans, promises the showrunner.
"We didn’t want to do anything that wouldn’t allow the world to continue in people’s imaginations," showrunner Darren Swimmer explained.
The 'Shadowhunters' social media team is definitely working hard to gift fans inside looks and teasers on the days leading up to the event. The Twitter page even did '25 Day of Teasers' for the show, where behind-the-scenes photos, gifs, and snippets from the show were shared with fans. Needless to say, they were all fully appreciated.
A deleted scene from the first half of the third season, featuring Lorenzo (Javier Muñoz) and Izzy (portrayed by Emeraude Toubia), was also shared by the Twitter page of 'Shadowhunters' on Thursday, December 21. In the clip, Izzy is seen gifting Lorenzo a “16th Century Castilian stiletto", one that he used while fighting in the Spanish Armada, as a gesture of goodwill for becoming an ally.
While there is a whole of flirting involved in the scene, fans are not taking too pleasantly to this pairing, even expressing their gratitude about the clip being deleted from the episode.
It is worthwhile to note that the showrunners do not give any strong plots for Izzy, but they are quick to make her character flirt with men wherever the opportunity presents itself.
Here are some hilarious reactions to the clip:
