Mortal Instruments Coming To TV As Shadowhunters!

Cassandra Clare

When The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones was released in theaters, I said “Despite its two hours-plus running time, City of Bones manages to introduce all kinds of plot points without ever giving us of the rules that cause its world to function in the way that it does.”

Now, ABC Family has ordered a The Mortal Instruments TV series called Shadowhunters. The series – which will tell the story of Clary, the 18-year old who discovers that all legends are true and that she has a crucial role to play in a world where the supernatural is real – will have the opportunity to get it right.

Mortal Instruments author Cassandra Clare said, of the move by ABC Family, “I’m excited to see ABC Family bring the world of the Shadowhunters to life. As a huge fan of long-form television drama, I can’t wait to see the story unfold and for the fans to have more time with the world and the characters.”

The series goes into production in May. Casting news will be released later. For more, follow the jump.

Kevin From Work goes into production in June and will premiere later this summer. For more, follow the jump.

New Photos from The Fosters Season Finale

ABC Family’s The Foster has it’s second season finale Monday night. With the promise of a major death in the last 5 minutes things don’t look promising for everyone’s favorite interracial foster family. My theory is that Mike (Danny Nucci) is going to die and Brandon (David Lambert) gets injured again. But at least these pictures look promising for Callie (Maia Mitchell) as she meets her grandfather, played by Dallas’ Patrick Duffy. By these pictures it looks like the meeting is going well.
