New Shadowhunters Trailer: Clary Learns “The Truth About the World,” Meets Jace


“Not long ago, I discovered the truth about the world,” Clary Fray says in the opening moments of the latest trailer for ABC Family’s upcoming series Shadowhunters. However, for Clary, “the truth” isn’t so much about the harsh realities of growing up and becoming an adult. Instead, it’s more about the existence of demons and angels and the small fact that her ancestors were human-angel hybrid demon hunters called “shadowhunters.”

For those unfamiliar with the source material, Shadowhunters follows 18-year-old Clary Fray (Katherine McNamara), who finds out on her birthday that she is not who she thinks she is. She 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.

The series stars McNamara (Clary Fray), Dominic Sherwood (Jace Wayland), Harry Shum Jr. (Magnus Bane), Alberto Rosende (Simon), Emeraude Toubia (Isabelle Lightwood), Matthew Daddario (Alec Lightwood), Isaiah Mustafa (Luke Garroway), and Maxim Roy (Jocelyn). Ed Decter will serve as Shadwhunters showrunner, with McG and Mortal Instruments author Cassandra Clare joining him as executive producers on the show.

Shadowhunters premieres on ABC Family (soon to be Freeform) on Tuesday, Jan. 12, at 9 p.m. Check out the new trailer below:
