Trying to save Shadowhunters....

Shadowhunters was officially cancelled by Freeform just over a week ago, and there is already push from the fandom to continue the series beyond the upcoming fourth and final (?) season.

While I am well aware that a fandom's voice can be essential in bringing back a series, I am of the mind that pushing to bring back Shadowhunters is a somewhat futile fight. I say this because I don't think the fans realize how much work goes in to creating a Sci Fi series of the caliber and quality of Shadowhunters. It's extremely rare to see a campaign to renew a series beyond a cancellation actually work.

What do you all think about this? I have pushed for series to be renewed long before they were canceled to no avail so it could just be that I've been burnt a time too many. I think the only way possible would be for a deal to be reached with a streaming service, which I believe would alienate many fans due to a lack of ability to pay for such services. (Most streaming services are cheap until you compute the yearly payments, and not everyone is able to afford those)

Do you believe Shadowhunters can be saved? Do you believe it should be saved?

There's definitely still a chance if the fans push hard enough, and it's fair enough that the show should be saved. 1 vote

most of the good US ( & Canadian shows) are aired in the UK on a subscription service so we are pretty used to it now, unless you get shows by other means. I also have Amazon and Netflix to cover all bases. It would be nice for it to get a final season but as we still have the season finale â??filmâ?? to see maybe that will wrap things enough so we donâ??t actually need a season 4? So many good shows have been cancelled recently itâ??s almost expected now. Always makes me laugh that we get a Trailer for â??the hit show from the USâ? and I know it got cancelled after one season.

Hey Kellie,
Thanks for this perspective.The only reason I questioned if it was final is because there is currently a fandom push to get the series renewed and moved elsewhere which I highly doubt will suceed. We still have the second half of Season 3 and then the film. Initially I thought this was season 4. I forgot that what I'm seeing now is 3A
