Ed Decter will no longer be in charge when the series — based on Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments books — returns for its second season, our sister site Deadline reports, a staffing change described as “sudden.” TVLine has confirmed the exit.Though no replacement has been announced, the new showrunner(s) will reportedly “tweak the series’ creative direction. TVLine spoke with Decter following the first season premiere in April, at which point he revealed big plans for the Shadowhunters gang moving forward.
Holy fuck! Seriously, I really want to know Decter’s reason for leaving. Seriously, it’s three days until the filming of season 2 begins, and Decter is just now leaving? It’s just really abrupt, and not a little suspicious. In the end, I really hope the person takes over his role, will do right by the series.
