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.

“We don’t know,” said Kevin Zegers. “They’re still writing the script right now, but I would say yes.  I’ve read a rough draft and there’s definitely a lot of stuff with the two of us. There’s also a lot of action, but there’s definitely more ‘Malec’ in the second film.”
