THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS TV series is getting its own unique title!
The Shadowhunter fandom has so much passion for Cassandra Clare’s THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS series that an on-screen version will get new life after the haphazard results of CITY OF BONES movie!
Fans have been eagerly awaiting news on the television series since it was announced last October. Now, author Cassandra Clare is giving us the first tidbit: A new name for the series!
@shadoowhunters It's going to be called "Shadowhunters."

SHADOWHUNTERS is a really smart choice for the series title, if we say so ourselves! First, it distinguishes itself from the somewhat polarizing film. But perhaps more importantly, it’s more open-ended, which may give the show the ability to dive into storylines from both THE INFERNAL DEVICES and THE DARK ARTIFICES throughout its run.
SHADOWHUNTERS will reportedly begin production in late 2015 and will feature hour-long episodes. Unfortunately, the TV series means that the entire gang will likely be recast. We don’t expect to see those announcements until just before filming begins.
