When Shadowhunters returns later this summer, we’ll be seeing a much different Magnus.
Showrunners Darren Swimmer and Todd Slavkin opened up in a new interview with TVLine recently about how giving up his powers to save Jace is going to change his life forever.
“It’s heartbreaking,” Todd shared. “But it’s also beautiful, because he learns a lot. He learns how to live in the moment, something he never had to do when he had powers.”
He continues that “Season 3B is such a rollercoaster ride for Magnus Bane. We loved his arc in 3A, but for Harry Shum, Jr. as an actor, it’s a hell of a journey. It’s beautiful and profound and it’ll break your heart. You’re in for a ride that’s really intense to watch.”
Darren adds about the moments to look forward to with Magnus and Alec, “The audience really responds to those slice-of-life moments…with all that’s going on in this world, it’s hard to find those moments, or at least it’s hard to find space for those moments to breathe.”
