Hi Glenn,

In addition to what Steve Crook wrote:

Typically fans of a series are more likely to rate episodes than non-fans. Fans generally rate the series and individual episodes higher than non-fans.

In the case of Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments (2016– ), 41,209 IMDb users rated the series.

The highest rated episode, Erchomai (2018), was rated by 1,850 IMDb users.

The lowest rated episode, The Mortal Cup (2016), was rated by 3,780 IMDb users.

IMDb does not use the ratings of individual episodes to calculate the overall rating of the series.
