JASMINE'S THOUGHTS on Shadowhunters Season 2
Based on Cassandra Clare's Young Adult fantasy book series The Mortal Instruments, Shadowhunters follows Clary Fray, who finds out on her birthday that she is not who she thinkgs she is but rather comes from a long line of Shadowhunters, human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons. Now living among faeries, warlocks, vampires, and werewolves, Clary begins a journey of self-discovery as she learns more about her past and what her future may hold.
Based on the novels by:
Katherine McNamara as Clary Fray
Dominic Sherwood as Jace Wayland
Matthew Daddario as Alec Lightwood
Alberto Rosende as Simon Lewis
Emeraude Toubia as Isabelle Lightwood
Harry Shum Jr. as Magnus Bane
Isaiah Mustafa as Luke Garroway
Although the series has come into its own away from the books, I think it has created a life of its own. Okay, it's not exactly following the books page by page, but I feel that it still is faithful to the story and characters that Cassandra Clare has created.
The cast and crew has progressed since the first season. And, I am liking the direction this series is going. Yes, it is not exactly following the books, but since when does a movie and/or television series follows the books...exactly. Various subplots have been revealed, and are tied in with each other. So, a lot has happened in this second season giving viewers a definite taste of the Shadowhunter world.
Overall, the characters and setting still is true to the books. Once you stop comparing the series to the books, you will enjoy this television series. The show is filled with it share of drama, action, suspense, adventure, and character angst.
Until the next season Shadowhunters!
Excited for Season 3!!!
