Shadowhunters producers have thanked fans for a loyal campaign to save their show, but have sadly ruled out its continuation.
“To our loyal and vocal fans who put so much behind making the show the popular series that it became, we extend our deepest thanks for your enduring support,” a statement reads.
“The outpouring from the fandom from the start, and since the announcement of the show’s cancellation has indelibly touched all of us involved. We’re so grateful to have gone on this journey with you.
“Regrettably for all involved, Shadowhunters must come to an end. While we are trying to figure out new ways and new incarnations in which to bring the Shadow World to fans worldwide, we are sad to say that after many efforts by all parties involved, it’s not possible for this version of Shadowhunters to continue.”
After Freeform chose not to proceed with a fourth season very creative fans staged a profile publicity operation including billboards in Times Square, public transport ads in Seoul and London, and flying an actual plane over Netflix’s LA headquarters. Aussie fans have also been campaigning heavily online.
The show, which airs in Australia on Netflix, is currently due to conclude in 2019.
