ABC Family, soon to be the network previously known as ABC Family because I refuse to call it Freeform, has released the first teaser for its new supernatural drama Shadowhunters. Based on the popular book series The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, the series will premiere on the young-skewing network in 2016.
The teaser doesn't reveal much and is basically Clary Explains It All (Without Explaining Crap), so here's what you need to know if you're unfamiliar with the source material: Shadowhuntersfollows the life of Clary Fray (Katherine McNamara), an 18-year-old girl who learns that she comes from a long line of Shadowhunters, a.k.a. human-angel hybrids who hunt demons and protect the innocent. When Clary's mother disappears, she'll find herself thrown into their dangerous world, which is also home to a mysterious and extremely attractive fella named Jace (played in the series by British actor Dominic Sherwood). Along for the ride are Clary's best friend Simon and fellow Shadowhunters Izzy and Alec. In a world where fairies, warlocks, vampires, and werewolves are real, Clary will begin a journey of self-discovery as she discovers her hidden family history.
