Where Does Shadowhunters' Series Finale Rank?


Shadowhunters has officially come to an end. 

The Freeform series ended after three seasons and 55 episodes on Monday with everything a good series finale truly needs: a wedding, a first kiss, a major death, a battle win, a time jump, a sacrifice, and a bit of hope. Clary’s shadowhunter memories had been erased, but clearly not completely, because she could see and recognize Jace, who had been looking after her. 

It was a bittersweet conclusion to the series after a devastating cancellation, but it was also basically a two and a half-hour movie that wrapped up the series in what felt like a pretty satisfying way. (That Malec wedding though…just a delight.) 

But that’s just us. It’s time to find out what you thought. 

After the finale, we asked you to vote on whether you loved or hated the episode, and then we ranked the episode alongside other series finales that viewers have voted on. In our poll, 66.06% of you said you loved it, which is pretty good! Definitely in the upper quadrant of series finales!
