'Mortal Instruments' TV Show 'Shadowhunters' Lands at ABC Family!

While the movie sequel may never see the light of day, Mortal Instruments fans have reason to be excited!

ABC Family has ordered a television series titled Shadowhunters, based on the bestselling young adult fantasy book series by Cassandra Clare.

The show will follow 18-year-old Clary Fray, who finds out on her birthday that she is not who she thinks she is but rather comes from a long line of Shadowhunters – human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons. When her mother Jocelyn is kidnapped, Clary is thrown into the world of demon hunting with mysterious Shadowhunter Jace and her best friend, Simon.

Now living among faeries, warlocks, vampires and werewolves, Clary begins a journey of self-discovery as she learns more about her past and what her future may hold.

“I’m excited to see ABC Family bring the world of the ‘Shadowhunters’ to life. As a huge fan of long-form television drama, I can’t wait to see the story unfold and for the fans to have more time with the world and the characters,” Cassandra said in a statement.

Shadowhunters will begin production this May in Toronto, Canada. The cast will be announced at a later date.

    Just please do not use the same cast as the movie. This is my favorite YA book series and I did not go see the movie it was cast so badly. You MUST cast Jace right!

    Benjamin Stone would be an awesome Jace, I hope they’ll consider him! No offense to Jamie C. Bower, but he didn’t do the character justice
