Missed “Beyond the Shadows: The Making of Shadowhunters” on TV?
If you missed Beyond the Shadowhunters: The Making of Shadowhunters, then you can now watch it right here. In the TV special that’s now available online, you can see pretty much all of the major cast members and some minor characters as well.
We hear from cast members Katherine McNamara, Dominic Sherwood, Alberto Rosende, Emeraude Toubia, Matthew Daddario, Harry Shum, Jr., and Isaiah Mustafa. And we also see Maxim Roy (Clary’s mother Jocelyn Fray), Kaitlyn Leeb (leader of the New York vampire clan), and Jade Hassouné (seelie court knight).
Based on the New York Times bestselling young adult fantasy book series The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, 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. -via Shadowhunters wikia
I think the thing that most fans of the Shadowhunter books are very much interested in not only seeing how close they the episode is to the storyline of the books, but how the relationships between the characters develop, which is a major part of what makes the books so strongly loved.
The drama and romantic tension between the characters are most definitely not the only reason for the love of the books, but the character growth and storylines of each. The TV special does show that there will, of course, be some differences from the books to help make it its own. I’d be a liar if I didn’t admit to being a little skeptical about the series, but I think Beyond the Shadows has helped ease some of that doubt.
Watch for yourself to find out if you’ll be watching Shadowhunters.
Shadowhunters will air its first episode on Tuesday, January 12,2016.
