What’s in store for Alec and Magnus in Shadowhunters season 3.

What’s in store for Alec and Magnus in Shadowhunters season 3.

Production of the third season of Shadowhunters started only a couple of weeks ago, and even though there has been surprisingly little BTS material, there are a few details that slipped through.

Here is what we know so far:

Alec

Alec Lightwood and Matthew Daddario may be very different, but there is one thing they have in common: going M.I.A. whenever the show is on hiatus. Just like with Matt, information about what Alec might be up to is scarce.

One thing we do know, however, is that Alec will have more scenes with our second favorite warlock. Ariana Williams, who plays Madzie, has been posting pictures from set recently and thanks to the chattiest showrunner ever, also known as Todd Slavkin, we know that Alec and Madzie will finally have more scenes together. We’ve missed the two of them on screen together and we are excited to see how their relationship has changed since they met back in 2×05. (source)

Apart from that, we might find out what the Head of the Institute is like when he’s drunk. Thanks to another one of Todd’s tweets, we know that at some point during the new season, Alec might go a little overboard with the drinks – and that gin and vodka might not be a good combination for him. That is, if we interpreted Todd’s (not so) cryptic hashtags correctly. (source)

Alec might also catch up with an old friend. And possibly make a new one. Since Sophia Walker is returning as Catarina Loss, it is likely that Alec and her will finally meet at some point. As for the old friend, there’s no news about Eileen Li resuming her role as Aline Penhallow yet, but we would certainly love to see it happen. And hey, Todd liked a tweet about it, so maybe the odds are not so bad. (source x source both tweets were liked by Todd Slavkin)

While we do not know when all of these things are going to happen in season 3, the writers already revealed that episode 3×02 will be a pretty big one for Alec. Stay tuned as we find out more about that. (source x source)

Magnus

For our dear High Warlock, there’s luckily more information – especially concerning how he is going to look like in season 3. Both in season 1 and season 2, Magnus has had a specific look – the many different colors and patterns (and half-unbuttoned shirts) of season 1 are holding a dear place in our hearts, just as his more toned down and classy, yet sophisticated style of season 2.

In season 3, his wardrobe seems to go into a similar direction, at least judging from the material we have seen so far. A recent photo (which had the entire SDN family dying, to be honest) shows Magnus in black skinny jeans, a dark shirt, shiny black boots and a dark green, patterned bomber jacket. Apart from that, he got a new haircut. His neatly styled undercut had to make room for a mohawk – and if there is one character on TV who can pull that off, it is certainly Magnus Bane. We also might get to see some colorful highlights again, as we have seen photos from Harry’s camera test where he sports white highlights. (source x source x source)

Magnus himself is not the only one who got a bit of a makeover for the new episodes. It seems like the High Warlock felt like expanding his apartment, as it has been confirmed that he will have a brand new study in season 3. We can’t wait to see it. (source)

We’re also thrilled to know that Catarina will be back in season 3, we were left hanging with only one scene with Magnus back in 2×19 and we are very eager to see what’s next for the two warlocks. Todd mentioned Catarina’s appearance in season 3 on twitter and stated that we will definitely see her blue skin in the future. (source)

Malec

In terms of what’s in store for Malec, we know even less than for Alec. However, the showrunners and crew members have liked a couple of tweets recently that would surely make great scenes for season 3:

One of the first novelties of season 3 could be a scene many fans have been requesting for quite a while now: Malec training together. Both Alec and Magnus are highly skilled fighters. Where Alec is one of the best shadowhunters of his age and has 20+ years of combat training, Magnus is a powerful warlock who has lived through dozens of wars and always landed on his feet. We are sure that seeing these two face off against each other in a training session would be nothing short of epic. (source Matt Hastings liked)

It seems like we won’t be complaining about a lack of Malec scenes in general. In an interview with TV Line, the showrunners announced that season 3 will focus even more on exploring their relationship, showing both domestic moments and challenges they face as a couple. In addition to that, Todd Slavkin teased on twitter that there will be “plenty of Malec moments” to make us gasp. Unfortunately, he left out one important detail: whether that gasping will be in a positive or negative way. (source)

Magnus and Alec are also going to have a scene with Luke. In our interview with Isaiah Mustafa, he told us that he recently filmed a scene with Matt and Harry. At the time the interview happened they were shooting 3×02, so we will get to see the parabatri working together pretty early on in the new season. (source)

Lastly, there was a mention of, for the book lovers infamous, sandalwood shampoo. In a reply to a tweet asking for teasers about Malec in season 3, Todd revealed that apparently, sandalwood shampoo will play a part in the season 3 Malec arc. He didn’t say much more about it, but considering what Magnus said about his preferred remedy for an overuse of magic in the season 2 finale, we are quite curious what that was about. (source)

That is all we know so far, but we will keep this article updated, so make sure to stop by every once in awhile so you don’t miss the latest S3 Malec news.

All you need to know about Matthew’s project “Nomad Cowboys”!

Nomad Cowboys is an upcoming documentary directed by Brock Harris and Creed Garnick. Its executive producer is none other than Matthew Daddario, who worked with Brock on a short film called The Last Hunt which was released in 2016. It is currently being filmed and was said to be launched in 2017, though no further details were announced at this moment in time.

Synopsis

“Let’s go play a game we’ve never played, in a language we don’t understand, where you could possibly die.”

In September of 2016, a couple Hollywood actors went to Kyrgyzstan to represent the USA in the “World Nomad Games” in order to challenge a group of cowboys. They compete in Kok-Boru – an ancient Central Asian Horse game – against the world’s greatest players.

Cast & Crew

The cast includes Creed Garnick and Brock Harris who both starred in and worked on The Last Hunt. They are joined by Billy Magnussen (Into The Woods), Brendan Bryant, Sky Garnick, TJ Moulton, Max Snow and Scott Zimmerman.

This wild ride was produced by Vanessa Garnick Boshoff, Aidan Kahn – infamous for his role in Van Helsing, Supernatural or even iZombie – and Sibyl Santiago – best known for the short drama The Last Hunt in which she worked with the cinematographer Axel Lanzenberg.

All you need to know about Matthew’s project “The Last Hunt”!

The Last Hunt is a short drama film released in 2016 and was screened at the Soho International Film Festival that year. The thriller was directed by Brock Harris and our dear Matthew Daddario. The drama won the award for “Best Short Film” at the Long Island International Film Expo in July 2017.

Synopsis

Cody and Daniel have taken the same hunting trip for over 20 years. However, at some point, Cody ate some bad venison and became infected with “prions”, a protein that causes other proteins to fold improperly in the brain. The disease is referred to as ‘Spongiform Encephalitis’. As his symptoms worsened, Daniel’s ex-girlfriend Crystal positioned herself as a caretaker, the two of them living in a trailer on the outskirts of town. When Daniel arrives at Crystal’s to take Cody on their annual hunt, he realizes quickly that Cody is no longer “all there”. Daniel suits up the delusional man regardless and they take to the woods. Crystal wakes up and finds a VHS tape in Cody’s place. Horrified, she pops it in the VCR and watches the disturbing content. In the footage, Daniel explains that they made a pact upon Cody’s diagnosis: once Cody’s sanity slips and he is no longer himself, Daniel is to put him down. Today is the day he intends to hold up his end of the bargain. With little time to intervene, Crystal calls her current boyfriend, police officer Mathias, who rushes to help her. It’s in this moment that we get lost in the thrill of the chase. Can Daniel go through with the pact? Will Mathias be able to stop him?

Cast & Crew

The cast is composed of Brock Harris as Daniel, Creed Garnick as Cody, Tanaya Beatty as Crystal and Matthew Daddario as Mathias.

The short film was produced by Sibyl Santiago, Brock Harris and Creed Garnick, and had as its executive producer Matthew Daddario. This crew all recently joined forces once again to work on a new documentary called Nomad Cowboys, which will be launched in 2017.

All you need to know about Harry’s new project “Crazy Rich Asians”!

All you need to know about Harry’s new project “Crazy Rich Asians”!

Crazy Rich Asians was written by Kevin Kwan back in 2013, rising quickly in the charts, it became a best-seller that year. Thanks to its popularity, the novel was followed by a sequel China Rich Girlfriends in 2015.

The book was picked up by Warner Bros. Studios in late 2016 and its movie adaptation will be helmed by Jon M. Chu, best known for Now You See Me 2, Step Up 2: The Streets (2008) and Step Up 3D (2010) – the last two movies starring Harry Shum Jr. This will be the first time since Joy Luck Club in 1993 that an American-Hollywood studio backed up an all-Asian cast. The principal photography for the movie was completed June 24, 2017 in Singapore. As of now, there is no word on when the adaption will be released to the public.

The plot

The plot follows Nick Young a history professor at NYU who is falling in love with fellow professor Rachel Chu. When traveling back to Singapore to attend his best friend’s wedding, he decides to invite Rachel to come with him. Although, before long, his secret is out: Nick is from a family that is impossibly wealthy and he’s perhaps the most eligible bachelor in Asia. Of course, every single woman in his ultra-rarefield social class is incredibly jealous of Rachel and wants to bring her down. Henceforth, it’s Rachel’s goal to prove that she is worthy to be his wife.

The cast

When it comes to the casting choices, Terri Taylor didn’t disappoint us. Constance Wu’s role was one of the first to be cast, as her character, Rachel Chu, has one of the most important storylines. The Young Family was later on chosen with Henry Golding as Nicholas Young and Michelle Yeoh as his over-calculating mother, Eleanor Young. Nick’s cousin, Astrid Leon will be portrayed by Gemma Chan. Our beloved Harry Shum Jr will play Charlie Wu*, a character that definitely distinguishes itself from any of Shum’s previous roles.

*Harry’s character is Astrid Leon’s tech billionaire ex-fiancé who still has feelings for her despite being married to someone else. Astrid’s parents disapprove of him because he does not come from an old-money family like her.

SDN Weekly Hiatus Program

SDN Weekly Hiatus Program

Summer is almost over, the worst of the emotional damage caused by the season finale (should have) passed and another hiatus has come upon us. Ahead of us lie five long months without any new Shadowhunters episodes. Sounds pretty bleak, doesn’t it?

Well, here at ShumDario News, we think so too. That’s why we came up with something to make the wait for season 3 a little less terrible.

Peering into the Shadows: A look toward season 2

As time draws near for the season two premiere of Freeform’s new hit TV show Shadowhunters, fans are on the edge of their seats with enthusiastic anticipation. Having survived a long and arduous nine month hiatus the prospects of what has been called a “darker and more emotional journey” for the treasured characters of Cassandra Clare’s Shadowhunter Chronicles has worked fans into a frenzy of excitement. Having built a strong and passionate fandom community on social media in a very short amount of time, the Shadowhunters fans have already been named the Most Social TV Show of 2016 by Variety Magazine in their “freshman” category beating out heavy hitters like Lucifer and Stranger Things. As well as ranking #4 on Tumblr’s list of Top TV Show – Live Action, above mega-hits like The Walking Dead and Teen Wolf. Suffice it to say that no one can doubt the undying support and devotion the show has assembled this year with a combination of longtime book fans merging with new fans to the Shadow World.
