Shadowhunters Casts Luke Baines as 'New' Jonathan for Final Episodes

Shadowhunters Spoilers

Jonathan Morgenstern is going to look a little different the next time he and Clary come face to face.

Luke Baines (Australia’s Home and Away) will recur in the final episodes of Freeform’s Shadowhunters as Jonathan — in his true form — our sister site Deadline reports, replacing his previous pseudo portrayer Will Tudor. Jonathan will serve as the Big Bad of the series’ final episodes, presenting a “new level of evil that they can’t even imagine.”

Check out a video of Baines in character below:

As fans will recall, Jonathan was reborn in the final moments of the show’s midseason finale, which ended with a catastrophic explosion that caused Clary, Jonathan and Lilith to disappear.

The second half of Shadowhunters‘ third — and, sadly, final — season will air sometime in 2019, followed by a two-hour movie event currently being billed as The Final Hunt.
