Shadowhunters Showrunner Exits as Production Begins on Season 2

Shadowhunters Season 2

Shadowhunters has had an interesting week, which began with the Freeform drama winning two Teen Choice Awards… and ended with it losing a showrunner.

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.

Shadowhunters fans, which “tweaks” would you like to see made to the show in advance of Season 2? Drop a comment with your thoughts below.
