This fantasy adventure series is based on the young adult fantasy book series by Cassandra Clare, The Mortal Instruments. The books have been popular for years. Will the Shadowhunters TV show on Freeform have the same kind of longevity? How will it perform in the ratings? Cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.
On the Shadowhunters TV show, young Clary Fray (Katherine McNamara) celebrates her 18th birthday at a New York City nightclub and sees a group of teenagers with supernatural abilities attacking a demon. She realizes that she is the only person who can see them and later learns that she’s one of a long line of demon hunters. When her mother is kidnapped, she must join other hunters to try to save her, all while learning about her new supernatural abilities. The rest of the cast includes Dominic Sherwood, Alberto Rosende, Matthew Daddario, Emeraude Toubia, Isaiah Mustafa, and Harry Shum, Jr.

I am addicted to this show. Fell in love at the first episode. I have not read the books but have read some fan comments about the show not following the books’ storyline.
