Shadowhunters trailer: First look at Mortal Instruments TV series
Earlier this year, EW debuted the exclusive first look at the upcoming series, Shadowhunters. Now, ahead of an appearance at New York Comic Con, the first trailer has arrived online courtesy of BuzzFeed.
Based on The Mortal Instruments, the best-selling YA book series, Shadowhunters follows Clary Fray, a young woman who, after the kidnapping of her mother, Jocelyn, discovers there’s much more to her upbringing than she could have imagined. Descended from a long line of Shadowhunters – human-angel hybrids tasked with hunting down demons – Clary’s life is thrown for a loop as she’s introduced into a world filled with warlocks, fairies, vampires (and, of course, super cute Shadowhunters).
In the trailer, Jocelyn reveals to Clary that she’s “more powerful” than she knows, and our heroine sets off on a journey of discovery that includes a confrontation with a terrifying demon. Only, she’s not exactly interested in this whole “supernatural Fight Club.”
Shadowhunters – starring Katherine McNamara, Dominic Sherwood, Alberto Rosende, Harry Shum Jr., and Emeraude Toubia – premieres to Freeform (formerly ABC Family) in 2016.
