Shadowhunters will premiere in January and some promotional pictures from the first episode have been released.
ABC Family (that will become Freeform soon) will air the first episode of Shadowhunters on Tuesday, January 12th, which is titled 1×01 ‘The Mortal Cup’.
More than 40 promotional and behind the scenes pictures from the series premiere reveal the extraordinary looks and clothes of the main characters as well as their surroundings (the Pandemonium!). There are some spoilers so, you’ve been warned!
Focusing in Clary (Katherine McNamara), these images show how the young woman begins to discover her true identity and makes new friends, like Jace (Dominic Sherwood) and his family: Isabelle (Emeraude Toubia) and Alec (Matthew Daddario). But there are also pictures with her actual family: her mother Jocelyn (Maxim Roy) Luke (Isaiah Mustafa) and her best friend Simon (Alberto Rosende). There are also photos of Magnus (Harry Shum Jr.), an extravagant wizard who will become her friend.

Plot summary – One young woman realizes how dark the city can really be when she learns the truth about her past in the series premiere of Shadowhunters. Based on the bestselling young adult fantasy book series The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, Shadowhunters follows 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. Now thrown into the world of demon hunting after her mother is kidnapped, Clary must rely on the mysterious Jace and his fellow Shadowhunters Isabelle and Alec to navigate this new dark world. With her best friend Simon in tow, Clary must now live among faeries, warlocks, vampires and werewolves to find answers that could help her find her mother. Nothing is as it seems, including her close family friend Luke who knows more than he is letting on, as well as the enigmatic warlock Magnus Bane who could hold the key to unlocking Clary’s past.
