Shadowhunters' Alisha Wainwright Joins Michael B. Jordan In 'Raising Dion'

Shadowhunters may have sadly been cancelled, but Alisha Wainwright is not leaving our TV screens!

The actress, who played Maia on the Freeform show, has just been cast opposite Michael B. Jordan and newcomer Ja’Siah Young in the new show Raising Dion for Netflix.

Alisha will play Nicole Reese, “a former professional dancer who gave it up to raise her son Dion when her husband Mark died. Although Nicole is completely overwhelmed by raising her son alone while dealing with the loss of her husband, she is still effortlessly cool and maintains a positive outlook on life for Dion. As Dion’s abilities become more and more apparent, Nicole’s protective nature heightens as she starts to fear for his safety.”

Raising Dion follows the story of a woman named Nicole Reese, who raises her son Dion (Young) after the death of her husband Mark (Jordan). The normal dramas of raising a son as a single mom are amplified when Dion starts to manifest several magical, superhero-like abilities. Nicole must now keep her son’s gifts secret with the help of Mark’s best friend Pat (Jason Ritter), and protect Dion from antagonists out to exploit him while figuring out the origin of his abilities.

Alisha Wainwright Talks How 'Shadowhunters' Season 3 Will Have Complete Sub-Stories

Alisha Wainwright Talks How 'Shadowhunters' Season 3 Will Have Complete Sub-Stories

Alisha Wainwright stuns in this pic from the April 2018 issue of NKD mag.

In her feature interview, the Shadowhunters actress opened up about how season three is changing the game.

“This time around, I really feel like we’re going to start to understand the dynamics that make the Downworld function—and dysfunction,” Alisha shared.

The sub-stories that she’s most excited for are the interpersonal and relational ones.

“Fans will find that really interesting, because it goes beyond just trying to fight some bad entity — although there is a lot of that this season — and more character development,” Alisha adds.

Shadowhunters airs Tuesdays on Freeform.

Alisha Wainwright Dishes On The Storyline You Probably Didn't See Coming on 'Shadowhunters'

Alisha Wainwright Dishes On The Storyline You Probably Didn't See Coming on 'Shadowhunters'

Alisha Wainwright steps out for the 2018 ipsy Gen Beauty event over the weekend in Los Angeles.

The Shadowhunters actress joined Jenna Ortega, DeVore Ledridge, Monique Coleman, Olesya Rulin, and makeup guru Laura Sanchez at the beauty event this weekend.

In a recent interview, Alisha opened up about an underlying storyline that most fans might not have picked up on — acceptance.

“I feel like a lot of stuff happened in season 2, and I think in season 3, you kind of take a step back and see how do you make the day to day work,” she shared.

“It’s less about the stuff that’s happening, the stuff that’s being done to the people, and more about how the people are connecting with each other.”

“[Like], How can we have a relationship when you’re a vampire and I’m a werewolf? In season 2, we never really had to deal with that, but now in season 3 it’s an issue and one that we didn’t really see.”

Alisha adds, “Now we’re trying to deal with making sure everyone accepts us, and again, it’s a way to touch on a theme outside of the show in a non-political way.”

Shadowhunters airs Tuesdays on Freeform.

Alisha Wainwright Teases 'Shadowhunters' Season 3: 'Be Prepared For Some Shake Ups'

Alisha Wainwright Teases 'Shadowhunters' Season 3: 'Be Prepared For Some Shake Ups'

Tonight’s the big return of Shadowhunters and we are so stoked about it — especially after talking with star Alisha Wainwright.

The 28–year-old actress, who plays Maia in the series, chatted with JJJ about the new season, new villain and new relationships.

“I would be prepared for some surprising shake ups,” Alisha dished about the whole feel for the season. “Viewers will get the whole picture on what it’s like in the day to day life of the downworlders once the dust has settled from the season two finale.”

When we mentioned new villain Lilith, it was clear that Maia, and Alisha, did not like her one bit.

“She’s terrifying and she’s out for blood,” she shared. “Maia doesn’t like anyone that comes between her and the ones she loves.”

Shadowhunters premieres TONIGHT @ 8PM ET/PT on Freeform.
