New ‘Shadowhunters’ Character Posters Tease a Dark, Sexy Season 2

Shadowhunters season 2 is almost upon us! And boy are we being spoiled with these new photo releases!

MTV News debuted exclusive character posters for Shadowhunters‘ upcoming sophomore season, which will be featured under new direction of showrunners Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer.

The new posters, which feature Clary, Jace, Simon, Isabelle, Alec, Magnus, and Luke, feature New York City as the backdrop as Shadowhunters channels its Mortal Instruments roots.

Slavkin spoke to MTV News and teased that Shadowhunters‘ second season will reflect the tone of Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments books.

“The books are darker, we felt like, than the first season,” Slavkin said. “They felt a little more sophisticated and much more character-focused, so we wanted to sell that urban fantasy in a much more grounded way. New York City, like the books, is a huge character in Season 2. It’s a little darker, but it’s still light and fun — this isn’t The Walking Dead.” (Thank Idris for that.)

Shadowhunters season 2 premieres Monday, Jan. 2 at 8/7c on Freeform.
