‘Mortal Instruments’ TV Show ‘Shadowhunters’ Heading to ABC Family

The Internet has been abuzz with news about ‘The Mortal Instruments‘ television series for a while now. Not much had been previously been confirmed — until now.

You ready for this?

ABC Family has ordered 13 episodes of ‘Shadowhunters,’ a show based on Cassandra Clare’s young adult ‘The Mortal Instruments‘ book series, THR reports.

Constantin Film will produce, and Ed Decter will be the showrunner and executive producer.

Production will begin in May, in Toronto. Casting has not yet been announced.

ABC Family is promoting ‘Shadowhunters‘ as a high-end drama.

“Shadowhunters is a big, epic saga that will resonate with viewers who come to ABC Family for the Harry Potter, Hunger Games and Twilight franchises,” ABC Family president Tom Ascheim told THR. “A New York Times best-seller for 122-consecutive weeks, with over 35 million copies in print worldwide, Shadowhunters is the perfect story to share with our audience.”

‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones’ was adapted to film back in 2013. Starring Jamie Campbell Bower and Lily Collins, the movie had a weak opening at the weekend box office, making just $9.3 million and netting $31 million domestically throughout its theatrical run.
