While we know Shadowhunters is set to air in early 2016, author Cassie Clare is now confirming the show will be on-air in January.
Still no exact date, but looks like it might debut with the second half of Pretty Little Liars Season 6 since the first TV promos for the show also aired during the show’s season premiere in June.
Good news, Shadowhuters! Author Cassandra Clare met with the writers of the TV show in Los Angeles and took to her Twitter to quash some of the more terrible of the recent rumors about the show.
Cassie confirms the show will start from the beginning.
She also states that there is no Natalie – Simon’s rumored girlfriend.
Alec and Magnus’s romance stays.
While the characters will be aged, it will only be two years.
And lastly, it’s not long until we hear more!
This was inevitable, Shadowhunters – the new adaptation of The Mortal Instruments coming to TV will have a new title. Cassie Clare announced the name as ‘Shadowhunters.’
Who else loves the title? I feel like it captures the main point of the entire series, not just TMI but more and we can expect the expansion of the universe in the show in a way that the movies wouldn’t have allowed.
Shadowhunters is set to begin production later this year.
What do you think of the title?
Previously, we had heard that the next two installments in The Mortal Instruments franchise, City of Ashes and City of Glass will be filmed back-to-back. But producer Martin Moszkowicz confirmed in response to a query on Twitter that only City of Ashes will be filmed this year, directed by City of Bones director Harald Zwart.
Moszkowicz also said that premiere plans will only be finalized by July.
