Season 2 of "Shadowhunters" is on the way, and it's going to pick back up right where Season 1 left off. Screener has an exclusive sneak peek at Season 2, and where all of our characters stand when the story continues.

Jace (Dominic Sherwood) is still the unwilling prisoner of his father, Valentine (Alan Van Sprang) -- and despite pledging his loyalty to Valentine's mission, he's not exactly on the same page as his demented dad.

"He's kind of lost in this place of -- he doesn't know who he is," Sherwood says. "He really does have to choose the light side or the dark."

Meanwhile, Clary (Katherine McNamara) is dealing with having her mother back in her life, which certainly changes up the power dynamic we saw in Season 1. Instead of these kids operating on their own with little to no oversight, Clary will now have to contend with both Luke (Isaiah Mustafa) and Jocelyn (Maxim Roy) trying to keep her safe and out of shadowhunter affairs.

Hopefully they can split some of their parenting duties between Clary and Simon (Alberto Rosende), who will probably need a parent figure in his new downworlder life to help him find his way.

One thing we're seriously looking forward to, of course, is how Magnus and Alec's relationship with unfold in Season 2. If we're picking up right where we left off, Magnus and Alec still have a lot of things to discuss about their relationship.

First and foremost, when do they get to go on an actual date?

"Shadowhunters" premieres Jan. 2, 2017 at 8p.m. ET/PT on Freeform.
