Shadowhunters Season 2 is a bit away, but today we get the first look at Malec in the second season.
While we have been vocal about the fact that Malec deserves a better story line and more development, it looks like we may be getting that this season.
“Because of the complications in the end of season 1 and Jace now being gone, we get to really show the evolution of the relationship from the beginning. They’ve got to learn to know each other and we get to follow that path.” Showrunner Todd Slavkin told EW.
“There’s from such two different worlds — one’s a warlock, one’s a shadowhunter. One is super experienced and has lived for centuries and has bedded many, many, many men and women, and here’s Alec, who is a young lad who’s just leaping into the world of relationships. We thought it was great in season 1, and it’s a relationship that we’re deeply invested in and has such interesting potential.”
We too believe that the relationship has potential and we hope that they do it justice this season.
Shadowhunters returns to Freeform in 2017.
