I mean, it has to be better. How could it possibly be worse? Show creators, that was not a challenge.
How do we know? Not to jinx it or anything, but this teaser from the ABC Family television series (soon to be a Freeform television series) has gotten our hopes up that Shadowhunters won’t be a complete train wreck like that movie that shall not be named.
And at the very least, perfect casting is perfect.
You can start getting excited now by checking out the first official footage over on BuzzFeed.
Shadowhunters 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.
