More 'Mortal Instruments' Is On It's Way - As A TV Show!

Looks like we’ll be getting more Mortal Instruments after all.

According to THR, Constantin Films announced plans to bring the YA big screen adaption to the small screen.

Announced at MIPCOM, Constantin film and TV head Martin Moszkowicz shared, “It actually makes sense to do (the novels) as a TV series. There was so much from the book that we had to leave out of the Mortal Instruments film. In the series we’ll be able to go deeper and explore this world in greater detail and depth.”

The company hired Ed Decter as showrunner for the show which will start production next year.

    I’m glad their not giving up on it … it might do better as a show. Especially if they recast it.

  • Court

    Very happy. They should have done this in the first place, she has so much material within the shadowhunter world that a movie didn’t really make sense. My only question now is : are they recasting, and are they starting from after the first movie…or are they going to re-do the first movie?

  • Nice

    I hope Lily plays Clary in the series!

  • Kel

    They should recast Jace. But keep the cast for everyone else, especially Clary and Simon. And they need to start again. They missed too much in the movie.

    While I would like them to keep Lily, I think she’s going to go back to TV, after starring in Hollywood movies.

  • James

    Oops, I meant I DON’T THINK she’s going to go back to TV.

    So while I’m sad to see Lily Collins and Robert Sheehan go, I’ll be happy when they recast Jace. Jamie Campbell Bower was really miscast in the role!

  • James


    If there is one role in the movie they should recast, it’s Jamie. He was horribly miscast as Jace.

    Jace is supposed to be snarky, smirking and sarcastic and Jamie just didn’t capture that. His Jace was WAAAY too serious.

    Sorry but I can’t see anyone but Jamie Campbell Bower & Lilly Collins as the leads. JCB got Jace’s personality down pat! The chemistry was good. They just compared it to much to Twilight in the marketing. They also didn’t market enough. I didn’t know the movie had been released til it had been out for a week. Never read the books til after I watched the movie. It hooked me! Won’t watch the TV show unless they keep the cast.

  • Marla

    Yeah! I think it is a great idea. I will watch it!

  • Ceanna Savannah

    I cant wait to watch it! I just hope they recast.. but hopefully if they recast Jamie Campbell Bower is still Jace he was perfect.
