-The previously reported renewal as told by Spoiler TV was not official official.
-There was no actual official word from Freeform - cue fan speculation.
-Then someone from the writer's room said on twitter that the show has NOT been renewed - fans on social media panic.
-Then the Freeform Upfronts happen, and still nothing about a renewal, and Shadowhunters (their second biggest show after PLL) wasn't even there - fans now in a total frenzy convinced it's cancelled.
-Turns out they had filming obligations, so the cast did a Facebook Live this afternoon, dragged it out, then finally announced the official renewal.
-Season 3 will have 20 more episodes and premier in 2018.
