While we’ve known for a couple of weeks that Shadowhunters would be airing on ABC Family (thanks to leaked casting information and this picture from Martin Moszkowicz), it has officially been confirmed!

According to the press release ABC Family sent out, Shadowhunters has been given a 13-episode, straight-to-series order for its first season. That means that we’re guaranteed 13 episodes of the one-hour drama regardless of how the show is perceived or its ratings.

Here’s what Cassandra Clare had to say:

“I’m excited to see ABC Family bring the world of the Shadowhunters to life. As a huge fan of long-form television drama, I can’t wait to see the story unfold and for the fans to have more time with the world and the characters,” added book author, Cassandra Clare.

Here’s a statement from ABC Family president Tom Ascheim:

Shadowhunters is a big epic saga that will resonate with viewers who come to ABC Family for the Harry PotterHunger Games and Twilight franchises,” ABC Family president Tom Ascheim said. “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.”

Unlike previous reports,  Shadowhunters will film in Toronto, where the movie was filmed, with May being eyed as the start of production.

Casting is currently underway on the project with the show’s premiere date to be determined.

ABC FAMILY ENTERS A WORLD WHERE ALL LEGENDS ARE TRUE

WITH THE SAGA SERIES PICK UP OF “SHADOWHUNTERS”

Series Is Based on the Beloved New York Times Bestselling Book Series

The Mortal Instruments by Author Cassandra Clare

Burbank, CA (March 30, 2015) – ABC Family has picked up its first scripted saga-to-series, “Shadowhunters,” from The Mortal Instruments franchise, announced today by Tom Ascheim, President, ABC Family and Karey Burke, Executive Vice President, Programming and Development, ABC Family. The series will go into production this May in Toronto.

Based on the bestselling young adult fantasy book series The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, “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.

“’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,” said Ascheim. “A New York Times bestseller for 122-consecutive weeks, with over 35 million copies in print worldwide, ‘Shadowhunters’ is the perfect story to share with our audience.”

Burke continued, “Clary is a strong, dynamic and captivating character that our audience will immediately identify with. They will want her to succeed and will root for her on her journey to become who she was always meant to be. The series has a passionate fan base and an expansive universe that can sustain multiple seasons to come.”

“I’m excited to see ABC Family bring the world of the Shadowhunters to life. As a huge fan of long-form television drama, I can’t wait to see the story unfold and for the fans to have more time with the world and the characters,” added book author, Cassandra Clare.

“Shadowhunters” is produced by Constantin Film, and Ed Decter serves as executive producer and showrunner.

‘Shadowhunters’ Update: Cassandra Clare Meets With The Network — And It’s Good News!

IMG_2302

There have been a lot of discouraging rumors surrounding the Shadowhunters television show, but leave it to Cassandra Clare to calm our anxiety.

Cassie is in Los Angeles attending meetings for the Shadowhunters television show, and from what she has to say, it sounds like good news!

Below are some of the highlights from her tweets, including a promise we’ll soon know when the show will be airing, an official filming start, and squashing some of those horrible rumors that have been floating around.

I think we can all agree that Cassie being involved with this show is a FANTASTIC thing!

Shadowhunters is set to begin filming this summer (rumor has it June) in Vancouver.

Exclusive: Jack Falahee Talks Preparing to Narrate ‘The Lost Herondale’ + a ‘Nuanced’ Simon Lewis

Jack Falahee

So as major fangirls of How to Get Away With Murder, we’re super excited to bring you an interview with Connor Walsh himself, Jack Falahee, who is the audiobook narrator for Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy: The Lost Herondale.

In the interview, Falahee talks about how preparing for narrating an audiobook is similar to preparing for a role, but perhaps more difficult. He also discussed his love for Simon Lewis, who he called a “nuanced,” “flawed” and relatable character.

We also have an excerpt from the audiobook:

Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy: The Lost Herondale is now available to download as an eBook or audiobook!

New ‘Shadowhunters’ Rumors: Creepy Jace + Production Pushed Back to Late June?

IMG_2302

Happy Thursday, Shadowhunters. How’s your day going? If it’s going well you might not want to hear about these latest rumors from the Shadowhunters television show. It doesn’t sound encouraging.

According to Spoiler TV, production on Shadowhunters has been pushed back from May to late June. That’s not the concern. The production delay most likely is related to scheduling conflicts and such.

But the real concern lies in these new teasers from the pilot script (thank you Spoiler TV), including a highly disturbing teaser about Jace and more information about this Natalie girl that no one cares about.

- An early scene see’s Simon and Clary at Java Jones. They’re watching the news about a ‘Demonic Killer’ who has killed 7 people.

– Natalie carries Yeti in her backpack. She’s described as a bit possessive and bohemian beautiful.

Jace has a creep moment where he inscribes a rune on Clary’s upper thigh while she’s passed out.

– Steles are retained from the books.

– Seraph Blades are retained from the books.

“Jace has a creep moment.” Wow that’s just fantastic. Because nothing says sexy leading man like a rapist. Because “inscribes a rune on Clary’s upper thigh while she’s passed out” isn’t just a creep moment, it’s rapey.

This better be a rumor. A horrible rumor. Because Jace is not a rapist. There’s no way that anyone would condone something as inappropriate and rapey as what Jace is said to do to Clary. I can’t say this enough, but this better be a rumor because it’s just all kinds of wrong.

Do those in charge need a reminder of what kind of character Jace is? He’s charming, handsome, vulnerable, caring and funny. He uses that humor to deflect and make us care about him. It’s that multi-faceted and humorous personality of Jace’s that made us fall in love with him. It’s the personality that was missing in the film. Jace isn’t Jace without that humor. And this rapey Jace certainly isn’t Jace.

Can we instigate a #JaceIsNotARapist trend or something?

Because I am tired of all these negative rumors, let’s focus on the couple bits of positive rumors, which include the steles and seraph blades remaining a part of the story. Let’s hope that’s a sign that Ed Decter will remain faithful to the world of the Shadowhunters (but at this point my faith is wavering). It’s also nice to see that Java Jones is in there (with Clary and Simon sharing a scene there like in the book).

Also, Spoiler TV shared the full description of Shadowhunters:

Clary Fray is perfectly normal; she’s a budding art student who loves spending time with her friends and family. On her 18th birthday, however, Clary discovers she is part of an age-old battle between demons and an elite race of warriors known as Shadowhunters. When her mother is kidnapped and her home is destroyed, so is her sense of reality. Clary must now understand her new role in an ancient battle, and come to terms with her family’s past.

Shadowhunters will air on ABC Family with production set to begin, according to Spoiler TV, now in late June in Vancouver.

Happy release day to ‘The Lost Herondale’

The Lost Herondale, the second installment of Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy, is out today! It was co-written by Cassandra Clare and Robin Wasserman and it focuses on Simon’s training at Shadowhunter Academy and Tobias Herondale, one of Will and Jace’s ancestors.

Here’s the official description and a short snippet:

Simon learns about the worst thing a Shadowhunter can do: desert their comrades. In the early 19th century, Tobias Herondale abdandoned his fellow Shadowhunters in the heat of battle and left them to die. His life was forfeit, but Tobias never returned, and the Clave claimed his wife’s life in exchange for Tobias’s. Simon and his fellow students are shocked to learn of this brutality, especially when it is revealed the woman was pregnant. But what if the child survived…could there be a lost Herondale line out in the world today?

 

“Demons and warlocks can’t help what they are,” Balogh said darkly. “Shadowhunters are held to a higher standard. The deaths of those three men sit squarely on the shoulders of Tobias Herondale. And he would have been punished in kind, had he ever been foolish enough to show his face again. He never did, but debts need repaying. A trial was held in absentia. He was judged guilty, and punishment was carried out.”
“But I thought you said he never came back?” Julie said.

“Indeed. So the punishment was carried out on his wife, in his stead.”

“His pregnant wife?” Marisol said, looking like she was about to be sick.
“Sed lex, dura lex,” Balogh said. The Latin phrase had been hammered into them from the first day at the Academy, and Simon was coming to hate the sound of it—so often was it used as an excuse for acting like monsters.

Balogh steepled his fingers and contemplated the classroom, watching in satisfaction as his message came clear. This was how the Clave treated cowardice on the battlefield; this was justice under the Covenant. “The Law is hard,” Balogh translated for the hushed students. “But it is the Law.”

Due to the time difference between the States and Europe, I’ve already read The Lost Herondale and I urge you to buy the ebook. There is a surprise at the end which you do not want to miss!

Happy reading, Shadowhunters!

The next ebook – The Whitechapel Fiend – will be released on April 21.

You don’t actually need an iPad, Kindle or Nook to read The Lost Herondale. If you have an Amazon account, you can download the free Kindle Reading Apps for smartphones, computers or tablets.

Amazon US/Amazon UK/Amazon Germany/Amazon Canada/Amazon France/Amazon Spain/Amazon Italy/Amazon Australia/Amazon Brasil/Amazon India/Amazon Japan/Amazon China

When all the ebooks are published, the book will be released in print format (just like the Bane Chronicles).

The Cold Hard Truth: There Will Be A New Cast For ‘Shadowhunters’ TV

New TMI poster

This isn’t easy to say, but it needs to be said. For everyone holding out hope that the cast from The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones will return for Shadowhunters, please don’t.

It’s the cold, harsh truth of the situation. But it’s the truth. Movies and television are two different mediums with two different studios (Sony and ABC Family) running the show, two different interpretations and two different casting departments.

Is that to say with 100% confidence that none of the film actors could actually be cast in the show? No, because nothing is impossible. But the likelihood of that happening is slim to none, actually, more like none to none.

I say this because while I’ve seen most fans understand this (whether it’s accepting it or being adamantly against it), there are some that are holding onto hope that the movie cast will return. But they won’t.

This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Think of it this way, we have one family in The Mortal Instruments movie cast, and we’re getting another family with the Shadowhunters cast. We don’t know who these people are yet, but I’m sure they’re great people who we’ll end up really loving. It’s unfair to prejudge them just because they’re not (insert actor name here).

Embracing the new cast doesn’t mean you’re betraying the old cast. Actually, don’t even think of them as “old” and “new” casts. Think of them as “movie” and “TV” casts. They’re different, but they’re both determined to represent the characters, the story and the fandom in the best possible way.

We all love the movie cast. They were our first family who brought our favorite characters to life on the big screen. Having gotten to talk to them, I can say they’re genuinely great people. They were always so dedicated to their characters, the franchise and, most importantly, the fans. They deserved all the love we gave them.

But their original foray into the franchise wasn’t met with 100% enthusiasm (I think we all remember the Great Jace Casting Debate). But eventually the fandom settled down and embraced the cast like they embraced the characters in Cassie’s books.

I have a feeling the same will happen with the TV cast. Where there are incredibly encouraging fans, there are incredibly negative fans. Whether it’s because they don’t look like the character or they’re not the actor from the movie, there’s guaranteed to be negativity. This is the Internet, after all.

But I have no doubt that this fandom will soon embrace them the way they embraced the movie cast. Give them a chance, because they’ll soon be family. And there’s nothing more important than family.

Will and Tessa share a sweet moment in ‘The Whitechapel Fiend’ snippet

Art by Cassandra Jean

We really are getting spoilt this week! There are new UK covers for The Mortal Instruments, exciting Shadowhunters TV news, a new Lady Midnight snippet and now Cassandra Clare has posted a short excerpt from The Whitechapel Fiend, the third short story from her co-written Tales from the Shadowunter Academy series.

Awww, right?

Here’s the official synopsis for The Whitechapel Fiend:

Simon learns the truth behind the Jack the Ripper murders―“Jack” was hunted by Will Herondale and his institute of Victorian Shadowhunters.

It was co-written by Cassie and Maureen Johnson and will be released on April 21.

Emma is told about love in new ‘Lady Midnight’ snippet

The Dark Artifices art

Yesterday was a busy day for Shadowhunters! We got really exciting news about Shadowhunters, the Mortal Instruments television show, the new UK covers for The Mortal Instruments were revealed and Cassandra Clare shared another Lady Midnight snippet.

In this snippet Emma Carstairs is told about love and the negative reactions it can generate:

“Let me tell you a truth before you die, Emma,” said the voice. “It is a secret about the Nephilim. They hate love, human love, because they were born of angels. And while God charged his angels to take care of humans, the angels were made first, and they have always hated God’s second creation. That is why Lucifer fell. He was an angel who would not bow to mankind, God’s favored child. Love is the weakness of human beings, and the Angels despise them for it, and the Clave despises it too, and therefore they punish it. Do you know what happens to parabatai who fall in love? Do you know why it’s forbidden?”

I cannot wait to finally find out why romantic parabatai love is forbidden! Only one more year until Lady Midnight is published.

‘Shadowhunters’ set to begin production in Vancouver this May + network revealed, pilot name and character descriptions


While they’ve yet to announce the casting or network for The Mortal Instruments television show titled “Shadowhunters,” it sounds like we have a production start month and filming location.

According to industry insider Lemon_Buzz on Twitter, production on Shadowhunters is set to begin filming in Vancouver this May.


With May just two short months away, I’d anticipate a whole lot of network and casting news to be headed our way.

Get ready, Shadowhunters, it’s happening!

UPDATE:

Thanks to our friends at Idris BR, we found what looks to be a casting notice for Shadowhunters, which details the character descriptions (they’ve been aged up), the pilot name, storyline, producer credits and the network it will be airing on.

According to the notice, Shadowhunters will air on ABC Family and is ordered straight to series, which means that they don’t have to just film a pilot and hope the network picks it up. That means we’re definitely getting a show.

The website also revealed the title of the pilot, which is “The Mortal Cup.”

It sounds like they’re currently casting the roles of Clary, Jace and Simon, as this notice and character descriptions for the three are on the notice.

CLARY FRAY] 18-21 years old, beautiful, fiery red-headed, creative, and intelligent.

[JACE WAYLAND] Early 20s, narcissistic, and lethally gorgeous, Jace is a determined and expert Shadowhunter. A skilled soldier in a war against demons. After his father is killed, Jace makes it his life mission to seek revenge on the man who is responsible. After years of being the object of every girl’s desire, he finds himself in an unfamiliar position – falling in love with Clary… SERIES REGULAR, PLEASE SUBMIT ALL ETHNICITIES

[SIMON LEWIS] Early 20s, intelligent, very handsome in a non-calculated kind of way, Simon Lewis is Clary Fray’s long-time best friend. He’s the first to find humor in any situation. An accounting student by day, Simon spends his free time performing in a band. His loyalty and feelings for Clary are tested as he fights alongside her on an epic journey. Because of this, he is ultimately turned into a vampire and struggles to maintain his humanity while simultaneously accepting his fate… SERIES REGULAR, PLEASE SUBMIT ALL ETHNICITIES

There was also a brief synopsis of the show.

Clary Fray is perfectly normal; she’s a budding art student who loves spending time with her friends and family. On her 18th birthday, however, Clary discovers she is part of an age-old battle between demons and an elite race of warriors known as Shadowhunters. When her mother is kidnapped and her home is destroyed, so is her sense of reality. Clary must now understand her new role in an ancient battle, and come to terms with her family’s past…

New UK covers for ‘The Mortal Instruments’

It was recently revealed that Simon & Schuster will repackage the covers of Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices and USA Today shared the new cover for the paperback edition for City of Bones. It was also announced that the covers for the English The Mortal Instruments paperback editions are going to change and today, on World Book Day, the website FemaleFirst.co.uk revealed the new covers.

In July 2015 Walker Books UK will publish a major re-issue programme of New York Times No.1 bestselling The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare to attract a whole new audience as well as being a collectable for existing fans.

Each of the six titles in the series features gorgeous cover illustrations by Mila Furstova, the artist who created the album artwork for Coldplay’s Ghost Stories. The first book in the Mortal Instruments series, City of Bones, was a major movie release in 2013.

Cassie also posted about the covers and said:

Lots of people asked about the new designs for the covers of TMI in the UK/Australia/NZ/Ireland. Now, these covers aren’t going to replace the existing covers. The existing covers will still be sold. These will be sold also, either in the teen or adult section. They simply give an alternate look.

These are some of my favorite covers I’ve ever had. These are etchings done by artist Mila Fürstová. Within each shape, you can see careful details: Clary and Jace separated on City of Bones, together in City of Heavenly Fire, Alicante in the rose on City of Glass.

Furstova also did the cover for Coldplay’s Ghost Stories, which I love!

These are delicate and ethereal and lovely — very different from other covers I’ve had. I love the range!

You should definitely visit Cassie’s tumblr to see a larger and more HQ version of the covers. The details on the covers are amazing! Simply click on the picture and then click it again to enlarge it!
I love the colours of the new covers and I think that City of Ashes is my favourite.
Furthermore, I was told that

the scans of the artwork don’t quite do them justice, the real pieces are absolutely stunning!

What do you think of the new UK covers and which one do you like best?

Producer Don Carmody talks ‘Shadowhunters’ TV Show

Shadowhunters

How would you like to start your Tuesday with some Shadowhunters TV news?

While producer Don Carmody was disappointed with the failure of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, he gushed to reporters at the Canadian Screen Awards on Sunday about his hopes for the forthcoming television series, which will be titled Shadowhunters.

“The story is so broad and the novels are so dense that we’re actually now talking about doing it as a limited series for television,” he explained.

Carmody shed some light on how the books could be divvied up by season on the show, which would be a great way to delve into the plethora of story in each book and remain as faithful as possible to the story.

“The first book would be the first year and then assuming that goes well, the second book, the third book, the fourth… there are six books. So that’s what we’re looking at.”

But Cassandra Clare’s “Shadowhunter” stories don’t end with The Mortal Instruments. There’s also The Infernal Devices, which would end up benefitting should Shadowhunters end up a success, the forthcoming The Dark Artifices, The Last Hours and The Wicked Powers among short series like The Bane Chronicles and Tales from Shadowhunter Academy.

Carmody also touched on where he’d like the show to be filmed, which would be in Toronto like The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. That’s not confirmation that it will be filmed there, just that he’d like it to be. We’ll just have to wait and see.

Shadowhunters is set to begin production this year.

What are your thoughts on each season being one book in the series? Would you like the show to be filmed in Toronto like the movie was? Share your thoughts below!

Cassandra Clare shares excerpt from ‘The Lost Herondale’

http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/chronikenderschattenjaeger/images/b/b3/TSA02_cover.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20150217172317&path-prefix=de

Yesterday Cassandra Clare shared that Jack Falahee from ABC’s How To Get Away With Murder will be the narrator of The Lost Herondale and today Cassie posted an excerpt:

“Demons and warlocks can’t help what they are,” Balogh said darkly. “Shadowhunters are held to a higher standard. The deaths of those three men sit squarely on the shoulders of Tobias Herondale. And he would have been punished in kind, had he ever been foolish enough to show his face again. He never did, but debts need repaying. A trial was held in absentia. He was judged guilty, and punishment was carried out.”
“But I thought you said he never came back?” Julie said.

“Indeed. So the punishment was carried out on his wife, in his stead.”

“His pregnant wife?” Marisol said, looking like she was about to be sick.
“Sed lex, dura lex,” Balogh said. The Latin phrase had been hammered into them from the first day at the Academy, and Simon was coming to hate the sound of it—so often was it used as an excuse for acting like monsters.

Balogh steepled his fingers and contemplated the classroom, watching in satisfaction as his message came clear. This was how the Clave treated cowardice on the battlefield; this was justice under the Covenant. “The Law is hard,” Balogh translated for the hushed students. “But it is the Law.”

The Lost Herondale is the second installment of Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy and it will be released on March 17. It is also the first installment which is co-written by Cassandra Clare and Robin Wasserman.
