#MyFandom is a biweekly Twitter Q&A highlighting Fandom communities and pop culture influencers who love to geek out hard over their favorite fandoms. The latest program showcased our friends at the Shadowhunters Wiki.

Shadowhunters has found massive success as one of MTV’s latest flagship TV series. It doesn’t hurt that the cast is absolutely beautiful: Katherine McNamara, Dominic Sherwood, Matthew Daddario, and Harry Shum, Jr., among others. The adaptation of Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments book series is already looking at a highly anticipated return in Season 2, and the fans won’t stop talking about it.

So we decided to tap into our Shadowhunters fan community on Wikia and see what all the big fuss is about. With over 1.1 million global pageviews in the last month, the Shadowhunters Wiki is one of, if not the best source, for Shadowhunters fandom.
