Besides the continued effort Shadowhunters fans have had to try to save the show, there has been little news about the fantasy drama…until now.

Announced earlier this week, Luke Baines will portray Jonathan Morgenstern and the latest villain in the remaining season three episodes.

With Jonathan resurrected in the spring finale, it’s perfect for Luke to step in and fill the role that was previously held by Will Tudor. Actually, while not explained, I’m pretty sure Will’s character was supposed to represent the identity of Sebastian Verlac and not the real Jonathan Morgenstern.

Per Deadline, the executive producers even stated in previous interviews that someone different would be portraying the real Jonathan Morgenstern, so the recast doesn’t come as too much of a surprise. Plus, Tudor has a new project of his own.

As per usual with Shadowhunters castings, Luke created a (hilarious) video announcing his new role and how excited he is to be a part of the show/fandom.

What are your thoughts on this casting and how do you think Luke will portray Jonathan as opposed to Will Tudor?

Shadowhunters‘ remaining season 3 episodes air in 2019 on Freeform, with a 2-part series finale to follow after.
