Mortal Instruments gets another shot as TV series

The bestselling Young Adult franchise The Mortal Instruments will live on as a television series entitled Shadowhunter at ABC Family.

THR reports that ABC Family has given a straight-to-series order to the one-hour drama series based on Cassandra Clare’s six novels.

Shadowhunter will follow Clary Fray (played by Lily Collins in the film), who discovers she’s from a long line of Shadowhunters-human-angel hybrids who hunt demons.

After her mother is kidnapped, Clary gets caught up in demon hunting with Shadowhunter Jace and her best friend Simon. She’s then thrust into a world of supernatural creatures including warlocks, vampires, werewolves, and faeries.

The Mortal Instruments was originally planned as a film series, but when the first one, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, failed at the box office, production on the second one stalled.
