After weeks of reveals met with unprecedented fanfare on Twitter, the primary cast of ABC Family’s Shadowhunters is finally intact and in the midst of its first week of rehearsals in Toronto. If any part of this is news to you, allow me to bring you up to speed.
Based on Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments book series — and previously adapted into the feature film City of Bones — 2016’s Shadowhunters follows a young woman named Clary Fray who discovers on her 18th birthday that she’s a human-angel hybrid destined to battle dark supernatural forces.
Fans of Clare’s books, as well as the 2013 movie, will notice that several changes have been made on the journey to the small screen — Clary, for example, is a few years older on the show, and Luke has been rebranded as an NYPD detective — but the heart of the franchise remains very much intact.
