Luke Baines has been cast in the recurring role of Jonathan Morgenstern, the main villain in the remaining episodes of the third and final season of Freeform’s fantasy drama series Shadowhunters.Previously hiding behind the identify of Sebastian Verlac, played by Will Tudor, Baines’ character was reborn at the end of the spring finale and is the true form of Clary’s (Katherine McNamara) brother. Jonathan’s return will present Clary and the Shadowhunters with a new level of evil that they can’t even imagine.
It was a lingering question following the spring finale as to who would play the character. Executive producers had discussed in previous interviews that Tudor would not be playing Jonathan.Based on the Mortal Instruments novels, the fantasy drama will end its run in 2019 with a 12-episode season. The current third season is based on the fourth and fifth books in the series. Its two-hour finale will be based on the sixth and final installment.
Shadowhunters is produced by Constantin Film. The series stars Katherine McNamara as Clary Fray, Dominic Sherwood as Jace Wayland, Alberto Rosende as Simon Lewis, Emeraude Toubia as Isabelle Lightwood, Matthew Daddario as Alec Lightwood, Isaiah Mustafa as Luke Garroway, Alisha Wainwright as Maia Roberts, and Harry Shum Jr. as Magnus Bane.
Baines is best known for playing the serial killer in Wes Craven’s final film The Girl in the Photographs. He’ll next be seen in David Robert Mitchell’s Under the Silver Lake, starring Andrew Garfield, Riley Keough and Topher Grace, set for release in December. He is repped by Authentic Talent & Literary Management and APA.
Freeform has canceled supernatural drama series “Shadowhunters.” The show will end with a special two-hour final at the close of the upcoming second half of season three.
“We are very proud of ‘Shadowhunters,’ a series that broke new ground in the genre world and became a fan favorite,” the network said in a statement. “However, along with our partners at Constantin, we reached the very difficult decision not to renew the show for a fourth season. But as big supporters and fans ourselves, Freeform insisted on and championed the filming of a special two-part finale that would give devoted fans a proper ending. The twelve episodes will air in spring of 2019. We want to thank our talented creators, producers, cast and crew along with our colleagues at Constantin for their hard work and dedication and to Cassie Clare for her incredible book series. We look forward to the final chapter of this breakthrough drama.”
“Shadowhunters” is produced by Constantin Films. Todd Slavkin, Darren Swimmer, McG, Matt Hastings, Mary Viola, Martin Moszkowicz and Robert Kulzer serve as executive producers. The second half of the show’s third and final season — which will consist of 12 all-new episodes — is slated to premiere in spring 2019
