Decter also teased the addition of new characters in the upcoming season. It is worth noting that they had already introduced a character that was not present in Clare’s books during the show’s first run. Lydia Branwell, which was played by [actress], was created especially for the show.”Some characters we’ve met go through giant transfomations,” Decter teased. “Simon’s girlfriend Maureen has a lot in store for her, and there’s a lot in store for Jocelyn and Luke. There will be new characters we meet as well, including the Seelie Queen.”The show has already been confirmed for a second season, but details about when it will return on screen have not been announced. It appears that the show will not be back on the small screen until next year, according to Cartermatt, giving fans a lot of waiting time before delving into the world of “Shadowhunters” again.
I’m really excited to see what Ed Decter and the writers will do for next season. I really want Lydia Branwell to promoted to series regular. I also want the writers give some the minors characters attention next season. Which is why I am especially really happy that we are going to see more of a Maureen. I’m not really happy about the long wait between seasons, but I have to remind myself that at least I don’t have to wait YEARS for another season like Sherlock fandom had to.
