Fantastic news, Shadowhunters fans!

According to Deadline, Netflix has acquired the GLOBAL rights to Shadowhunters!

Netflix has acquired global rights, excluding the U.S., to Constantin Film’s The Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments. The streaming giant will premiere the title as an original series globally on Netflix a day after the U.S. broadcast on Freeform (fka ABC Family), with the first episode launching globally January 13. Subsequent episodes will release weekly thereafter.

Shadowhunters is the TV adaptation spinoff of the bestselling book series The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. The book was previously the basis for the 2013 feature The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones, directed by Harald Zwart and starring Lily Collins. The TV series follows Clary Fray (Katherine McNamara), who discovers on her 18th birthday that she comes from a long line of Shadowhunters – humans born with angelic blood who protect humanity from demons. When her mother Jocelyn is kidnapped by a powerful foe from her past, Clary is thrown into a new life of demon hunting under the guidance of charming and headstrong Shadowhunter Jace Wayland (Dominic Sherwood). Now living in the Shadow World among warlocks, vampires, werewolves and faeries, Clary begins a journey of self-discovery as she learns more about her past and what her future may hold.

Kudos to Constantin Film for understanding that the love for Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments series is a world-wide phenomenon!

The countries in red have Netflix so this is where the Shadowhunters episodes will be aired one day after the US release:

Shadowhunters premieres Tuesday, Jan. 12 at 9/8c on Freeform and on Netflix on Wednesday, 13 for all the international fans 🙂

How excited are you right now? Tell us in the comments below.

40 Comments on Netflix to release ‘Shadowhunters’ globally

  1. AAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU GOD!!!!!! I’M SO EXCITED

  2. Does this mean it will be on Netflix in the US after the entire series finishes airing right away?

  3. By the Angel! YYYYYYEEEEESSSSSSSS!! This makes me so happy! I’ve been panicking about how I’m going to watch it here in England. I was hoping they would pick it up as Netflix is the only place that shows Once Upon A Time and Pretty Little Liars over here and if I understand correctly, they’re all shown on the same channel in the US, so it makes sense for them to pick up Shadowhunters. Thank you, Netflix! Roll on January! Whoop, whoop!!

  4. Netflix once again gets a terrific series, they also picked up Longmire when A&E dropped them, so fans if abc family decides not to renew the series, netflix will 🙂

  5. OMG OMG OMG ASF#YFSLIUYFS I THOUGHT I WOULD HAVE TO WAIT FOREVEEER!!!!!

  6. Interesting that the name is different; “The Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments” They’ll fix that I guess.

      They did this because there is a possibility of other characters from Cassie’s other series appearing in the show

  7. I was really rather upset seeing as the series was filmed in Toronto and we would not have been able to watch it….but now all is good!!! Can’t wait!!!!

  8. wait…so can people in the US watch it on Netflix after it airs on Jan12 or no?

  9. will it be shown on other channels as well possibly in the UK at a later date, other than Netflix? I would love that, but between paying the BBC for channels I don’t watch other than Doctor Who, and SKY for those I do, its more money just to see something 😦

    I’M SO EXCITED!!! I’m from Argentina and I thought I would have to see the series on seriesflv.com or something like that. I’m very happy bc Netflix will release the series one day after its premiere on USA. So, I will be able to see Shadowhunters soon and in high definition. 🙂

  16. Does that mean that people in the USA can’t watch Shadowhunters on netflix?

  17. Thank you Netflix!!!! This is going to be a great thing for the show!! As an Australian who was stressing on how I was going to watch this show I am so grateful!!!

  18. Yes!!!! I was so worried I wouldn’t be able to watch Shadowhunters!! Now I can. I am counting down the days until the 13th now.

  19. By the angel finally!!!!! Hopefully they’ll be close to the books.

  20. What time will it be added to Netflix? Would it be right away like after midnight?

    • Netflix, except for Netflix USA, will add Shadowhunters at 12:01 am Los Angeles time.
      Netflix USA does not have the rights, but I think ABC Family/Freeform has an app where you can watch it. Ask our Twitter @tmi_source, I’m not in the US so I don’t know for sure.

  21. YOU CANNOT BELIEVE HOW EXCITED I AM RIGHT NOW! I CANT WAIT!

  22. Thank God i don’t live in China :BBB

  23. what time will it be out on netflix in Ireland?

  24. Wait, it’s already January 13, and I don’t see it on Netflix. What the Heck?
