Phew!!! That was a close one!
But the two Shadowhunters should be counting their blessings because this second installment almost didn't happen!
The film's production company shut the movie down after the first flick MAJORLY underperformed at the box office when it was released in August!
The YA action-packed love story, an adaptation of Cassandra Clare’s best-selling book series, only managed to rake in $31 million at the American box office!
And that's no good, considering the film reportedly had a budget of more than $60 MILL!
Nevertheless, film executive Martin Moszkowicz says they are still committed to making the sequel, and it all might be because of the response they received from fans! Martin explained:
But Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them takes place over 70 years before the events of J.K. Rowling's original series.
So could we see ANY of the characters return??
Well, here are a few of the possibilities!
Ch-ch-check 'em ouuut …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Breakfast, eh?! We wonder…

The sequel to Mortal Instruments: City of Bones was all set to begin shooting next week! We were even just talking to the cast about getting back to work on City of Ashes!
But production has now been shut down INDEFINITELY following MI's poor performance at the box office last month!
After only a $58 million take at the box-office for City of Bones though, producers are now wondering if they have a hit on their hands or if they should bail out off this YA franchise altogether!
The executive producer of the flick, Martin Moszkowicz, is now saying that the decision to halt production was not an easy one, but that they are still very much committed to making the second movie. Martin explained:
