Shadowhunters on ABC Family

One of ABC Family’s newest dramas is “Shadowhunters,” a series based on “The Mortal Instruments” series of books by Cassandra Clare.

The show follows 18-year-old Clary Fray, who finds out on her birthday that she is not who she thinks she is, but rather comes from a long line of Shadowhunters -– human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons. When her mother Jocelyn is kidnapped, Clary is thrown into the world of demon hunting with mysterious Shadowhunter Jace and her best friend Simon.

Now living among faeries, warlocks, vampires and werewolves, Clary begins a journey of self-discovery as she learns more about her past and what her future may hold.

At New York Comic Con 2015, stars Katherine McNamara (“Clary”), Dominic Sherwood (“Jace”), Harry Shum Jr. (“Magnus”), Alberto Rosende (“Simon”), Emeraude Toubia (“Isabelle”), Matthew Daddario (“Alec”) and Isaiah Mustafa (“Luke”) as well as showrunner Ed Decter (“Helix”), executive eroducer McG (“Charlie’s Angels,” “Chuck”) and book author Cassandra Clare are on hand to dish all the dirt.
