“Shadowhunters” will live on at Freeform: The series has been picked up for a second season.

The announcement came Monday during a Facebook Live chat with members of the show’s cast. The pickup comes a few weeks ahead of the show’s Season 1 finale on April 5.

The show, based on the Mortal Instruments book series, has performed fairly well for Freeform thus far. It averages a 0.45 same-day rating in adults 18-49 and just over 1 million viewers; it typically grows by 0.3 to 0.4 points in the demo in Live +3.

“Shadowhunters” joins these shows that have been renewed for 2016-17 and beyond.
