Earlier in the year ABC announced plans to bring us ‘Shadowhunters’, which is a TV series offshoot of the movie ‘Mortal Instruments’, which is based on the young adult book series by Cassandra Clare.
The TV series follows 18-year-old Clary (Katherine McNamara), who discovers on her birthday that she is a Shadowhunter – a group of human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons.
The kidnapping of Clary’s mother sparks the young girl to go demon hunting with fellow Shadowhunter Jace (Dominic Sherwood) and her best friend Simon (Alberto Rosende).
Alan Van Sprang will take on the role of villain Valentine Morgenstern, while Maxim Roy, Emeraude Toubia, Matthew Daddario and ‘Glee’ star Harry Shum Jr will also appear.
Shadowhunters will air on ABC in 2016.
