With ‘The Mortal Instruments’ unlikely to ever get a cinematic sequel we do have good news from ABC’s televised take on the series as ‘Shadowhunters‘ has just gotten it’s first official poster! Running a Twitter campaign to get 50,000 tweets with the #ShadowhuntersPoster hashtag having been a success we’re getting one of the clearest look at the characters to date! Talk about a great promo shot too!
You can check it out below:
We know from previous interviews that the show is “not following the books one to one with the seasons. However, what we’re doing is we’re borrowing. We may set something up that we know happens in season 6, but start setting it up now… We borrow from all the books and we’ll be tracking along with the major giant story points that fans want to see. And then the new viewers, we very carefully get there so they understand what’s going on. They don’t have to be a super fan to enjoy the show.” So fans of the series should have fun with a lot of the setup that we’ll be getting.

Shadowhunters follows 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.
