‘The Mortal Instruments’ to return as TV series!

After so long, here’s some actual news, Shadowhunters! According to The Hollywood ReporterThe Mortal Instruments is being relaunched as a high-end drama for TV!

Constantin has hired Ed Decter, whose writer-producer credits include Helix, Unforgettable, In Plain Sight and The Client List, as the showrunner for the Mortal Instruments series. The project is currently in development, with Constantin planning to begin production next year. No broadcast partners are yet attached to the series.

“It actually makes sense to do (the novels) as a TV series,” Constantin film and TV head Martin Moszkowicz told THR. “There was so much from the book that we had to leave out of the Mortal Instruments film. In the series we’ll be able to go deeper and explore this world in greater detail and depth.”

I, for one, am very excited about this! There is just so much going on in the Shadowhunter world that having a TV show exploring the storylines of all the different characters and settings makes much more sense.

While there were earlier talks about a possible The Infernal Devices TV show, looks like Constantin has taken that direction here. No word on the cast, however, but hopefully we’ll hear something soon!
