Shadowhunters is a show based on The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare and is currently in its second season. The series received the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Drama Series at this year's 28th Annual GLAAD Media Award for its portrayal of the relationship between bisexual warlock Magnus Bane and gay Shadowhunter Alec Lightwood, better known together as “Malec."

GLAAD’s ’16-’17 Where We Are On TV Report reported an increase in bisexual representation on both broadcast and streaming platforms and a slight decrease in bisexual representation in cable series. However, bisexual women outnumber bisexual men on every platform. Shadowhunters is one of a handful of shows that is helping to turn that tide of representation for bi men. Magnus, as the centuries-old High Warlock of Brooklyn, often works alongside his love interest Alec (a half-angel, half-human shadowhunter) to protect the world from threats. During the series’ first season, Magnus low-key affirmations of his sexuality and references to his past relationships have made it clear that he is bisexual without his sexuality being his sole defining characteristic or story. It is rare enough for a television series to include a well-written and nuanced bisexual male character, and it is even more rare for that character to be one of the leads. Hopefully, characters like Magnus will lead the way for increased and improved representation. In the series' second season, the show has also began exploring the backstory of Raphael Santiago, the leader of one of New York's vampire clans; he is one of the only canonically asexual characters to be on television now.
