Fans React: You Know You’re Obsessed With Shadowhunters When…

It’s only been on our screens for two weeks now, but for diehard fans the obsession with Freeform’s new demon-hunting drama Shadowhunters has been around for quite some time.

We took to social media this week to see how the fans were coping, and some of the responses were downright hilarious.


Some got meta with their answers:
