Shadowhunters Season 2 is going to be a rollercoaster ride full of action and emotion. While The Clave and the rest of the Shadow World are trying to suppress Valentine’s army, Clary (Katherine McNamara) and Jace (Dominic Sherwood) face a problem of their own: how will they react to the revelation that they are siblings?
Shadowhunters and The Valentine Connection
Jace and Clary have been drawn to each other since the first time they met. However, this connection might have nothing to do with fate, but their shared demons. In the finale of their freshman season, Jace discovered that he is the son of Valentine Morgenstern.
However, Jace and Clary will not have to confront this problem soon. McNamara told Hollywood Life that the scene wherein the two find out that they are siblings has not been filmed yet.
“We’re still waiting, and we’ve shot 10 episodes,” the young actress explained. Moreover, there is a more pressing reason why Clary has to find Jace in Season 2. McNamara stated that her character is “the only other person who understands what it’s like to find out Valentine is your father” and they need to “sort that out.”
The 21-year-old also teased how things are gonna be different now that Clary’s mom, Jocelyn (Maxim Roy), have awaken from her magically-induced coma. Because the Fray matriarch missed the first season, she did not really see her daughter’s transformation into a Shadowhunter. There is going to be a lot of confrontation between mother and daughter, said McNamara.
Moreover, the actress teased that there is going to be a family reunion at the end of Shadowhunters Season 2 Episode 1.
Darker, Grittier Sexier Theme in Shadowhunters Season 2
Meanwhile, Dominic Sherwood and Matthew Daddario stated that the show’s sophomore run is going to have a more mature approach as the narrative moves forward. Aside from the obviously darker theme, everything is going to be “aged up” in Season 2.
The actors stated the characters will have conversations that are “real” to the age of the characters and circumstances. The stakes are also higher now that their existence is on the line.
Shadowhunters Season 2 will air on Jan. 2 on Freeform.
