Plot

The second season of Shadowhunters returns with the Shadow World in upheaval with Valentine and the Circle continuing to grow stronger by the minute and our gang quickly becoming disillusioned with the Clave and their reaction to the recent events. Loyalties will be tested, unlikely bonds will be made, and relationships will be pushed to the limit as the Shadowhunters and their Downworlder friends make their own way in a new world.

Known information

SPOILER WARNING: Plot details follow. Caution is advised!
  • In Isabelle's desire to become the best Shadowhunter she can be, she might make some wrong choices that could lead her down a darker path.[1][2][3] As revealed in episode 5, Izzy took yin fen which she has already began to become addicted to; the addiction is expected to get worse in upcoming episodes.[4]
    • "It's going to take her down a path where she's going to be really vulnerable and trust the wrong people, and she may or may not fall in love with the wrong person."[4]
    • Aldertree will ask her out on a date.[4]
    • "There's going to be a breaking point [in episodes] 7, 8, and 9," where Izzy and Alec's "relationship is going to change and her relationship with Clary is also going to change because of this path she's facing.[5][6] There's going to come a point where she's going to break and probably no one's going to be there for her."[4]
    • "... an unexpected story line is coming up for Izzy, and it's something that even the diehard Mortal Instruments books fans won't see coming." "It's something that was not in the books, it was just created for TV.[4]
    • After everything, Isabelle will come off as very unbalanced by the end of it and would need help, and she will be getting it in the form of a new character—one "from the book that everyone's waiting for," who has been implied to be Sebastian.[7][8] She may also have a new love interest.[9]
  • Luke's "history in Idris will be explored through a series of flashbacks, and bits and pieces of his life before he was a werewolf are revealed."[6]
  • Magnus's history and his power and status as High Warlock will be explored.[12][13][14][15][6]
  • Raphael's history will be explored as he will play a big role this season.[16]
  • Meliorn will make an appearance in the first half of the season, specifically the ninth episode.[17]
  • A new sexuality is going to be represented in 2A.[18]
  • Alec will "struggle with the fact that the Clave, the institution he's built his entire life around, might not actually be the good guys."[6]
  • The Seelie Queen may first be introduced in a scene where all the leaders of the different Downworlder groups meet. See more information below.

Production

The renewal for the season was announced on March 14, 2016, during a Facebook Q&A with the main cast, executive producer McG, and former showrunner Ed Decter.[1]

Shortly before production began, Ed Decter "left" the series, supposedly over creative differences.[4][5] He was then replaced by Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer as the new showrunners and executive producers.[6] Some other parts of the production team, such as writers, crew members, and producers, also left.[5][7]

Several changes were made behind the scenes prior to the production of the season. Various creative decisions were made, in coordination with the new vision for the show's expanded look. Along with the aforementioned new showrunners are some crew changes: Folks VFX was brought on as the new visual effects team, and the new stunt coordinator was brought on to make the fight scenes take on more of a martial arts approach. Even some of the props were redesigned, including the swords; some blades which now have runes glowing on their surface. The new team hoped to make the show visually stronger—less colorful and bright, but darker with more powerful action and better visual effects; the Portal design is new, as well as the warlock magic, Magnus's cat eyes, the supernatural speed, particularly of the vampires,[8][9] the normal rune color was also changed from red (of the first season) to black (its standard color in the books),[10] and even parts of the set have been revamped by the new production designer; the actors were also encouraged "into uncomfortable places" and "to dig down deep" for this season's scenes. The EP Matt Hastings (who, due to McG's busy scheduling, is the production director now regularly on set[11][12][5]) also brought on new directors and cinematographers for this season in their efforts to change the look and make the show more cinematic, to give the show more scope and more depth. It is also set to "focus a little bit more on [the] core people," building on their characterization and integrating some more elements and the tone from the books.[8]

Filming began on August 8, 2016,[13] took a break in November, continued in January 23,[14][15] and is expected to end by May 2017.[16][17][18]

Trivia

  • According to the Todd Slavkin, it has been around month since the beginning of the events of The Mortal Cup.[8]
  • A new opening credits sequence was launched this season.
