SHADOWHUNTERS Preview: Learn More About Freeform’s New Supernatural Show


Clary Fray is a Shadowhunter in the ABC Family/Freeform series of the same name. Based on the young adult novels “The Mortal Instruments”, Clary discovers on her birthday that she comes from a long line of Shadowhunters — human-angel hybrids that hunt demons.

“The SHADOWHUNTERS story is about Clary Fray being sucked into the Shadowhunters world,” explains Dominic Sherwood (Jace Wayland) in a featurette for the new show. “The tagline is ‘all the legends are true’, so everything you ever grew up hearing about in the fairytales…they all exist in this world.”

When her mother is kidnapped, Clary must rely on Jace and his fellow Shadowhunters Isabelle and Alec to navigate this new world and find her mother. Fortunately, she has some other help in the form of her best friend, Simon. But can Clary and Simon learn to live among faeries, warlocks, vampires and werewolves?

And what about family friend Luke, who seems to know more than he is letting on?

Watch the cast introduce the show below, as well as a sneak peek from the pilot. Don’t miss the series premiere of SHADOWHUNTERS on Tuesday, January 12 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family/Freeform.
