Shadowhunters Preview: First Look at the New Mortal Instruments Series

by Clarissa / October 8, 2015

ABC Family (soon to be known as Freeform), released a series of videos via the Shadowhunters Snapchat account (TVShadowhunters), which has been brought together in a comprehensive preview ahead of the show’s appearance at New York Comic Con.

Shadowhunters is based on the young adult fantasy book series “The Mortal Instruments” by Cassandra Clare and centers around 18 year old Clary Fray, who learns on her birthday that she comes from a long line of Shadowhunters — human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons. Her mother, Jocelyn, is kidnapped, which leads Clary into a work of demon hunting with the mysterious Jace and her best friend, Simon. Now Clary is living a life full of warlocks, vampires, werewolves, faeries and other supernatural creatures.

Shadowhunters is set to premiere in January 2016.
