When it comes to The Mortal Instruments television series, there’s no such thing as too much news. And the news keeps on coming.
After official word on Monday that The Mortal Instruments would indeed be revived on the small screen, new information about the show has been revealed.
According to Deadline, episodes of the show will run one hour long and start from the beginning with City of Bones and later expanding to the rest of the series.
Initially there was concern where the show would pick up — would it start from the beginning or pick up after The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones film? Starting from the beginning makes the most sense as the TV series is a completely separate entity from the film, and it will help with the world building that takes place right from the start of the first book.
Also, Unique Features’ Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne, who served as executive producers on the film, will executive produce the television series.
Production on The Mortal Instruments television show is set to get underway in 2015.
Stay tuned for all of the latest updates along the way.
