Sitting down at New York Comic Con with Cassie Clare, Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer was something we were looking forward to. Todd and Darren are someone that we have been fans of – because we loved Smallville. The new show runners of Shadowhunters sat down and there was no punches pulled.
First and foremost we’ll be up front. The truth is that they inherited a fandom divided. There are the show fans, the book fans, and the show/book fans. The Shadowhunters fandom is in turmoil and that has to be a hard place for them to step into. The Shadowhunters fandom can be a cruel place but it can also be a kind place. There are many parts of the spectrum.
That being said – we tried to ask questions that would pertain to all of those parts of the fandom. We asked about the books, we asked about Saphael and Clizzy, we asked about what we can expect from the show.
The big thing is that everyone has a different definition of a ship. We don’t view a ship as a romantic thing, but we know that there are some that do. Will you be getting the romantic ship of Saphael or Clizzy? You’ll have to watch the video below to find out.
Shadowhunters returns to Freeform January 2nd.
